The Sindhu-Sarasvati civilization and Shikarpur

By Manzoor Chandio, Karachi, Sindh

There is no doubt that Shikarpur is the cradle of Sindh’s culture and heritage. Once upon a time, it was a great centre of trade and commerce linking South Asia with Central Asia. Now all this is history and Shikarpur, as the entire Sindh, has lost that status.

Therefore, there is need for reviving our lost glory like the European did in 14th to 17th century through renaissance. The best thing we can do is that we must learn more about our unique heritage and civilization- – the Sindhu-Sarasvati civilization.

Like the renaissance, meaning rebirth, began from Italy and spread throughout Europe, our civilization’s promotion must began from Sindh.

In this connection educated Sindhis can play the role like the European played in reviving the Roman civilization. The only thing is that we must own our heritage and civilization with pride and be assertive in introducing ourselves as the inheritors of the Sindhu-Sarasvati civilization.
