Indian writers visit KPC
KARACHI: Three renowned Sindhi writers from India visited Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Sunday and exchanged views with people on various matters pertaining to Sindhis living on either side of the border and the future of Sindhi language in India.
Hari Motwani, fiction writer and editor of famous literary magazine Koonj, Hiro Thakur, a broadcaster at the All India Radio and a prominent eminent researcher of classical Sindhi poetry, and Nand Chhugani, an anthropologist and researcher who has contributed greatly to the promotion of Sindhi literature in India, are on a month-long visit to Sindh.
At the press club they said Sindhi literature was on the decline due to decreasing interest of the younger generation, but the language had great prospects as far as its existence as a colloquial language was concerned. They said a liberal policy on the exchange of books between Pakistan and India would bring their peoples further closer.
KPC members informed the visiting intellectuals of the history of the club and the struggle of journalists of Karachi since the club had been established 48 years ago. staff report
