Professor Ram Panjwani, fondly called Dada Ram Panjwani by most
Sindhis. He made all the Sindhis, (who migrated to India, after leaving their
land (Sindh) abodes and even their Gods in Sindh, hoping to return soon to re-open
their houses and re-start their life back in their homeland). He let all Sindhis
re-discover their God Jhulelal in India. Most of the Sindhis were refugees,
landless, stateless and Godless and above all they were hope-less. They never
knew what to do, where to go and how to make their living in the new land called
India. Then Dada Panjwani, came up with the encouraging message of praying their
Lord Jhulelal and kindled the light of hope in every mind of discouraged Sindhis,
and re-established their faith in their God Jhulelal. They had forgotten that
during the times of previous calamities Lord Jhulelal had appeared by taking
avatar (read the Jhulelal stories published on the net) and helping the Sindhi,
who were oppressed by the Muslim rulers. Once again Sindhis were oppressed,
and Dada Panjwani went from town to town, village to village, singing the praises
of the Lord and brought Lord Jhulelal back to India from Sindh. Following is
one of the prayers written by one of our famous Sindhi son Parsram Ziyaa.
Cheti-Chand is coming soon and I wish all our Sindhi brothers and sister a Happy
Cheti-chand, and remember that Jhulelal is here, there and every where. Lala
JA Jhaati chao jhulelal.
Toon Shakhi aaheen Sabajho, Dar atham tuhinjo jhalyo (2)
Haaka tuhinjia khe budhi maan door khan aahyaan halyo
Too shakhi aaheen sabajh ..
Murka de maalika mukhe muhinjyun madaayun de na disu
Aeba moon mein ana-mayaa, sachu sachu atham saaiin saliyo
Khushi deenden ta khush rahibo, je gham deenden ta pyo sahibo
Mukhe jeean tun halaainden tuhinjia marzia te pyo halbo
Tun aaheen shaah be-parwah, gadda tokhan pyo ghurando
Je deeden tun pyo wathbo, na deenden maath mein rahbo
Maan tunhijo, tun aaheen muhinjo, dikhi rahandus, gilla tuhinjee
Zamano tokhe pyo chawando, chaa kahinje waata khe jhalbo,
Biyan khe bhi nawaazeen tho ziya te bhi nawazish kar
Kanden kirpa ta duniyan me hameshah kandhu khareen halibo.
Tun bharayal bhandaar aaheen khaali jholi bhar khanee
Aasha hika to men rakhi, moon aasro jaga jo palyo
Tun shakhi aaheen sabaajho ..
Tun heenyen jo thaar aaheen, thaar vijhu mana thaarko
Be-sabab duniyaan je hirsan mein jigaru aahe jalyo
Tun shakhi aaheen sabaajho .
Aasara vandri aahiyaan sartyoon, hotu acchi hiku theendauo
Hotu accchi hik theendau, dehu mubaraka deendau
Badndhiryun ji aau baani aahiyaan, baani shaal
Shaan priyun jo naahe visaaran, beli golin khe bi gadeendau
Aeba madaayun moonmen ghaneyun, paraee kurbu vandeendau
Nangro neth nangia te aahe, dhakro shaala dhakeendau
Dar ta sajana je swaalin kojhi, minthun shaala manjeeda
Lahirun vicha men keena chadeenda, neth Kinaare neenda
Tuhnije dama sa dil je ujryala baaga men eendi bahaar,
To nazara jahunte kayi, so daaimaa phulyo phalyo
Tun shakhi aaheen sabaajho .
Tun madhur manohar saaz preen, maan saaza sando aawaaz preen,
Tun man-mohindar naach preen, maan naacha sando andaaz preen
Tun dil jo komal bhaav preen, maan sauli sundar bhaasha,
Tun bhav-saagar dushwaar preen, maan paar wanjana ji aashaa.
Tun mae maa mae ji madh-hoshi, tun prem sacho maan khaamoshi
Tun maarana waaro mahaa-kaal maan anta kaala ji be-hoshi
Tun Shaam salono maan murli, tun Shiv Shankar maan Shakti
Tun aagyakaari Ramchander, maan Hanumaan ji bhagti
Tun deepak aain maan laata preen, tun manzil ain maan waata preen
Tun maha-bhayankar raat preen, maan kaari kaari baata preen,
Tun maalik maan miskeen preen, tun daataa aau bhikaari,
Tab tun moontan balhaar preen ain maan totaan balhaari
Tuhinee chaaunth te piyo aahiyaan pawaii mana taras ko
Maan Ziya majboor aahiyaan, rooh jo to saan rilyo
Tun shakhi aaheen sabaajho
