Sindhi New Year
It gives me utter happiness to share and wish you all a very happy "Chet i chand ,our Sindhi New Year". It is a very common saying that“Jeko Chavando Jhulelal,Tanhija Thenda Bera Paar means "Whoever will say Jhule Lal, his/her ship will reach the shores (safely).
We call it Cheti Chand because as per Hindu Calendar, it falls on the second day of Chaitra month (a day after Gudhi Padwa).
Sindhis celebrate this day with great pomp and show. People celebrate it by dancing in Sindhi Temples and Street Procession. Kids also showcase their talent by performing dance on special Sindhi Songs known as ladas. Famous ladas to name a few are :
- Mast Kalandar
- Ek Son Jo Rupayo
- Muhinja More Laada
- Ainer wade shaan saan
