A tribute to Sindh’s Radical Sufi Poet Sachal Sarmast – The Truth – (1739-1829) on his 194 URS Mubarak.
Sufi believe we never die but re-unite, so the departure is reunion and Sufi’s disciples witness it by gathering on Sufi Shrines & they dances, sing and recite their poetry. Sufi Poetic Traditions are unique in Sub-continent & hard to find anywhere else. Sufi emerge as a reaction to the religious bigotry & rigidity and its liberation from your ownself, own mind and all kind of arthodaxy. Sachal is not alone but from Rumi, Bhagat Kabir, Meera Bai, Shah Latif Bhittai, Saami, Bhagat Kanwar Ram, Saeen Baba, Ghulam Fareed, Qalandar, Shah Inayat & to Shaik Ayaz but the list doesn’t end on the these names it will go on and on.
