Description

Before independence, especially during the forties, the romantic and progressive trends were dominant in Sindhi literature. After migration to India as a result of the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947, the Sindhi writers carried forward these trends in literature. This special issue of Indian Literature celebrates this literature with essays and a selection from Sindhi poetry, short fiction, and plays.

Therefore , the Sindhi literature of the post-independence decades often makes reference to the human suffering that resulted from the uprooting of Sindhis from their soil and the consequent circumstances. Some stories and novels as also the poems point to the utter futility of the division of the two communities on religious basis, and the violence that ensued in the wake of the division.
