A Mesmerizing History of Sindhi Culture

Sindh is one of the largest provinces of Pakistan situated in Southern Border. The name of this province has been derived from famous River Indus. According to Sanskrit, the name of Sindh was pronounced “Sindhu” meaning “Ocean”. Approximately in 3000 B.C., the culture of Dravidian was urbanized and gave way to the Indus Valley Civilization. Indus Valley Civilization was rejected due to natural occurring disasters like floods but the take-over of Indo-Aryans caused the unexpected destruction of it, according to the Historians. In the present history, Sindh was seized by the British in 1843. Sindh province remained under the slavery of British India till 1947 when it was declared the official province of Pakistan.
