An Analysis of Research on Sindhi Folklore (1970-2013)


Folk literature is a real picture of the society. It presents the portrait of any nation’s culture, tradition, rituals and rhythms of life. Folk poetry in particular can be thought of as a beautiful flower in a desert which not only has an aesthetic charm but also an inimitable fragrance. Poetry is characteristically a song of inner cry, full of emotions and passion in the form of a composed melody. When we go through the history of man, we discover many facts about the way man used to live by studying their folk literature and living. Like other enlightened nations, Sindhi folk poetry is also very rich in thought and tune. Sindhi folk poetry has a lasting impact on Sindhi society.
