Sindhu Ratan Ram Jethmalani was keen that Sindhi version of the Song of Sindhu Hindu., along with English and Hindi be recorded on a CD and he expressed the wish that this CD should be in every Sindhi and Indian home.
His view was that the CD will immortalize the Song for our generation and posterity. He emphasized that the Song composed on the banks of Sindhu River by Karkarta Bharat, who was the elected Supreme Chief of the Sindhu clan of Sanatana Dharma, 7,000 years ago, should be recorded in Sindhi and other languages and should be available in every Sindhi and Indian home and institution. AIS respected his suggestion and all tracks are now available on the web site for listening and downloading.
Just to remind you, the CD begins with the recorded message from. Ram Jethmalani who pays respectful homage to the sacred earth of Bharat Varsha, which nurtured the breathtakingly advanced Indus Valley civilization, and is the common inheritance and the priceless treasure of both India and Pakistan and in fact of the whole world. Following are the excerpts from Ram Jethmalani’s recorded introduction of CD:
With both pride and pleasure, I introduce the Song of the Sindhu Civilization which has remained unsung for long centuries until my friend, Bhagwan S. Gidwani, brought it to light in his famous book, “The Return of the Aryans”.
The song was composed 7,000 years ago by Bharat, the 19th Karkarta or the elected Supreme Chief of the inhabitants on both the banks of the mighty Indus, now our beloved Sindh. Gidwani presents the song in his book in modern version by clarifying terms which now appear obscure.
The song celebrates the principle of ancient Indian culture of all inclusiveness, excluding none from God’s grace whatever their faith. Clearly it says, God’s gracious purpose includes all human beings and all creation, for God is the Creator and God is the Creation, that all are blessed and whatever God you choose he is that God and Dharma, righteousness or good conduct is His will. The Song stresses need for continuing search of truth and knowledge, for we cannot be hostage to dogma or custom or present learning, but must strive to enlarge the heritage of mankind, for ours is a growing tradition and not a fixed Revelation. To the present day Indian, whatever his spiritual beliefs, conception of the Divine and his Cosmos, afflicted by misconceived ideas of pacifism and non-violence, the song’s message is clear. That he must remain strong and united for he must know that not an external outside force can ever crush him, except when he is divided and betrays his own.
I am glad that Karkarta Bharat of Sindh, who composed this song, became so honored that our subcontinent came to be known, from 5000 years BC, as Bharat Varsha. But more about Bharat and his song can be read in the story in Gidwani’s book, as now I wish to stand no more between you and the presentation of this Song.
By recalling and singing this Song, today we’ll pay respectful homage to the sacred earth of Sindh, which nurtured this breathtakingly advanced civilization. It is the common inheritance and the priceless treasure of both India and Pakistan. In fact, the whole world – RAM JETHMALANI
Thus the Song of the Sindhu Hindu celebrates India’s age-old belief not only of tolerance but also respect for all faiths and creeds. There can be no compulsion and each individual must be free to worship his gods as he chooses, for how a scheme of salvation can be limited to a single view of God’s nature and worship, when we all recognize that God is an all-loving Universal God. Thus the Song celebrates our ancient ideal of recognition of spiritual nature of man wherever he is from; acceptance of every culture as a __expression of eternal values; and the obligation to respect and protect the faith of others. Clearly, the Song is based on individual freedom, equality for all and human rights and dignity. It embraces also the principle of ‘Unity in Diversity’ and stresses need for national unity, harmony, strength, self-discipline and selfless work on the part of the Sindhu Hindu to achieve the ultimate in being, ultimate in awareness and ultimate in bliss, not for himself alone, but for all, in order to abide by the ancient pledge of our ancestors.
After the introduction by Ram Jethmalani, the CD presents the English narration of the Song of
the Sindhu and melodious songs in Hindi and Sindhi by Koshi Lalwani, together with chanting of “OM” and mantras, and musical accompaniment by celebrated artists.
AIS applauds and appreciates contribution of Mr. Tariq Mahesar from Karachi, Pakistan, for his ready and selfless assistance in loading the CD on our web site. We also thank Mike Chase, our webmaster for posting the CD on our web site expeditiously.
