Bairagarh, renamed as Sant Hirdaram Nagar after the Sindh-born Saint Sant Hirdaram, is home to a large number of Sindhis hailing from Sahiti Pargana of Sindh, where the great poet Narayan Shyam belonged. Sant Hirdaram had migrated from Bhiria, a small town of Sahiti area while Narayan Shyam was born at a nearby village Qasim Khahi.
‘Sindhu’, actively working for promoting Sindhi culture, language and music through various programs since its inception in February 1989, has been celebrating Narayan Shyam’s birthday every year for the last 34 years.
