Title : Sind: A Re-Interpretation of the Unhappy Valley
Author : J. Abbott
Edition : HardBack
ISBN : 9789390729128
Pages : 113 p
Year of Pub : 2021
Price : Rs 625.00
This book is an attempt to write the history of the Sind valley. Inscriptions and archaeological findings have hardly been able to add much to our knowledge of her past. Geographical factors have played a destructive part, the extent of which is difficult to gauge. In spite of the falsities that pass for facts, the fiction that so boldly masquerades as truth, the conflicting theory of the savants so numerous, the author has meticulously verified every reference right from native to European records. He has also examined the records of the East India Company and European travellers. The reader will get a glimpse of the Indus, the Rann of Cutch, Debal, Bakhar, Tatha, the Alor Bund, and the Sumrahs. Besides there is an essay on the Alexandrian tradition, Khwajah Khizr, the island shrine, the Daryapanthis, the Indus boat, and Mathelo, one of the oldest sites in Sind.
