My dear fellow Sindhis,
Our Sindhi language is a very old one unfortunately due to frequent attacks from outside and hostile attitude of rulers it did not develop and make much progress. It is due to Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai that it survived and is known in the world. We should be thankful to Britishers also who recognized its importance and got prepared a new arabic script for it. It is during British period that so many selected and important books were got translated in Sindhi. Besides that Shah-jo-risalo was compiled and printed in Germany in 1866 by Earnest Trumpp and with that sanction and at the expense of the Government of India. In his preface written to the first edition of Dr. Trumpp states (We humbly trust that by the publication of this volume a firm base may be gained for the study of a language, which though not widely spread, is in many points superior to any other modern language of India and well deserving the notice of the Linguist).
