“Since the new generation of Sindhis doesn’t know Sindhi language, the club members have focused on teaching mother tongue to their children,” Lalita told adding that they have launched a drive to protect and preserve Sindhi language.

“We have a team of very active Sindhi women who use to work with full devotion,” Lalita said and mentioned the names of Deepa Lalwani, Jeoti Khushlani, Kashish Nainani, Jaya Manwani, Arti Bhagwani, Netu Lekhwani, Anchal Dayani, Versha Vanjhani, Hema Khubchandani and several other Sindhi women.
