Prof. Pritam Varyani in conversation with Menka Shivdasani, recorded in 2011 at the museum of the Indian Institute of Sindhology, Kutch

One of the founder-members of the Indian Institute of Sindhology in Kutch, Gujarat, Professor Pritam Varyani is an authority on Sindhi folklore and literature. In this interview at the Institute’s Museum, which Prof. Varyani was at the time managing, he talks about how urbanization has had a negative impact on folk culture, which is now on the verge of extinction. He also discusses an ongoing and in his own words ‘never-ending’ project he has been overseeing of documenting Sindhi folk culture.
