We in Washington are fortunate to have SaeeN Jami Chandio in our area as he periodically has Kachahries with us. We all Sindhis should be proud of his work and contributions he has made in the cause of Sindh, and he has rightfully achieved prestigious and high status on the international arena. Someone to be followed as role model.
