Dr Satish Rohra in conversation with Menka Shivdasani at the Indian Institute of Sindhology in 2011

This interview with Dr Satish Rohra, an eminent scholar, Sindhi short story writer and critic, took place at the Indian Institute of Sindhology on July 19, 2011—a memorable date because that was when he and his team at the Institute put in the final entry for a major dictionary project, the Standard Trilingual Dictionary (Sindhi–Hindi–English), of which he was Chief Editor. Dr Rohra here talks about the effects of the Partition on Sindhi culture, identity, language and literature. He calls for an attitudinal shift in order to ensure the younger generation is able to appreciate and nurture Sindhi culture.
