Not Sindhi as such... By Anum

14 February, 2014

Every culture has distinct norms, traditions and customs. These become the identifiers of a given culture. It tells the likes and dislikes and reflects the behaviour of people. Nowadays, the Sindh festival is being celebrated in different parts of Sindh.

It is a good step by the Sindh government to promote Sindhi culture. It is more than a festival actually. It tells about the respect the government has given to the people of Sindh. Cultural revival connects its followers to one another and to the culture itself. However, it has been observed at the inaugural ceremony and throughout the festival that most of the items and festivities had no connection to the Sindhi culture. The show was laced with western rather than Sindhi culture. Sindhi songs were sung in western style, instead of in the original Sindhi tune. The dresses of the participants were more western than Sindhi. Just for the sake of this exclusive occasion, efforts should have been made to encourage the participants to come in their traditional outfits. Such engagements would have developed an instant connection to the culture. Perhaps that was the reason behind celebrating this festival.
