An Introduction to Narain Kimatrai
By Shakun Narain
My husband Narain has been my strength. He has trusted and supported me in my
spiritual interests, and has been instrumental in my keeping a balance between
my house-hold duties and
About twenty years ago his friend Hotu, Diwan Hotchand Advani,
(Superintendent of Customs, now retired), showed him two volumes of a Sindhi
Books titled, "SIND JAY HINDUN JEE TAREEKH".
The book interested him as it recounted the History of Sind and Sindhi's, and
especially as it also contained photographs of our ancestors.
Hotu got these volumes photocopied for him, courtesy of Mr. Pishu T.
After glancing at some of the pages that seemed interesting to him, he put
the volumes away.
Now, twenty years later, he has picked up these volumes again and is making
an attempt to translate certain sections of them in English.
This attempt is not only for the benefit of our children, Sunder, his wife
Saira, Madhavi, her husband Mohan (Bob), Anuja and grandchildren Aysha, Shazia,
Aditya , and Kiran, but also for all Sindhi youngsters who may have an interest
to know about their roots.
I am convinced that you will be proud to get to learn about our roots of
lineage as well as the source of our surnames.
