They read it, they share it, they keep it…. this is what The Sindhian readers normally do! I see a natural awakening happening within the Sindhi community. People from the world over are attempting to hold on to the language and culture, which otherwise seems to be gradually diminishing; what with inter-caste marriages and globalization taking place in all aspects of life. On the cover of this first issue of 2016 we have the versatile Sanjjanaa Galrani, a Bengaluru based Sindhi actress, who has carved a niche for herself in regional language films. Internationally, we spoke with Dr Priya Kishnani from the USA, a physician-scientist well on her way to curing rare diseases and making significant breakthroughs. Chicago born jazz singer Sachal Vasandani made us sit up and listen to his special voice. From Washington DC, we spoke to a leading authority at the Centre for Global Development, Rajesh Mirchandani, whose aim is to make a tangible difference in the world. Closer to home, hearing impaired hair stylist Lavina Jagtiani (Kolkata) set the bar for grit and determination very high. While make up designer Pakkhi Pahuja took us through her years of experience in the industry, mandala artist Pawan Aswani showed us how art is key for self discovery. Executive Chef and Hospitality Manager at the Khar Gymkhana, Tushar Malkani shared with us his recipe for success. In the pages that follow, you will also discover author Kiran Chhabria from Dubai, emcee Simran Deenz Ahuja, custom clothes maker Matt Harpalani, Dallas native and someone who works with pain management - Dr Avinash Ramchandani, musician Karan Sajnani, proprietory trader and technical analyst Manish Hathiramani, dessert specialist Ruchyeta Bhatia, founder of a luxury facility management company Rajiv Malkani, DJ Neyha Tolani, and fashion designer Saheli Kukreja. A new year leads to new beginnings! So read, share, and keep!
