A Tribute to Allan Fakir
I came across a tribute to Allan Fakir today, by a band from Jamshoro called Sketches. How it made me feel is the only reason I am writing this post.
I grew up in Sindh, and Sindhi is my second language (very rusty, to say the least). Over the last decade I feel that I have lost my identity as a Pakistani, and as a Sindhi. Listening to this song today made me remember everything I had forgotten, the places, the friends, the life I lived in Sukkur in just 6 minutes.
In sharing this song below, I hope it does the same for another lost soul.
"Moujood" is a sufi poem by Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai
