* Our compliments to D.M. Butani <[email protected]>  for  his  Scroll (copied below) on the Song of  Sindhu Hindu in which he, first, gives  some  details of Karkarta Bharat, who composed this Song in 5085 BCE along the  banks of Sindhu River and in whose honour the subcontinent came to be known as Bharat Varsha, after he retired as a hermit.
** Our compliments also to AIS < [email protected] > for producing   the CD to present this great Song with English narration and melodious singing in Hindi and Sindhi and excellent musical accompaniment.
Do please contact < [email protected] > for your CD on Song of Sindhu Hindu, if you have not received it.
*** Excerpts from the Song  of Sindhu Hindu in the Scroll  &  CD  have been reproduced from Bhagwan S. Gidwani’s book -  "Return of the Aryans"  published by Penguin Books Ltd., India & Canada ( ISBN 0-14-024053-5 ). Presented in novel form, the book unfolds the drama of the birth and beginnings of the roots of Hinduism (Sanatan Dharma) at the dawn of civilization, prior to 8,000 BCE and the origin of Aryans in India and their travels, in 5,000 BCE,  to far flung countries,   such as Iran , Sumeria , Egypt , Russian lands & Scythia , Lithuania , Turkey , Finland , Sweden , Italy , Greece and Germany . The book presents glimpses of art, culture, music, abstract thought, philosophical leanings, spiritual values of pre-history India and reveals dramatic stories behind the origins of Om , Namaste, Swastika, Gayatri Mantra, and Soma Wines.; also  it has tales of  discovery and disappearance of Saraswati River;  founding  of  Ganga,  Dravidian,  & Sindhu civilizations;   battles and blood-shed that led to fall and rise of Benaras, Hardwar,  and many cities.  Besides, it sheds light on pre-history establishment of  legal & constitutional systems; development of ships & harbours; gold-mining; chariots; Yoga; mathematics; astronomy; medicine; surgery; music, dance, drama, art & architecture; and material advancement of the pre-ancient India. "Return of the Aryans'"  deals with  Hinduism  & its roots, affectionately - and obviously with deeply-felt respect and pride. All literature on India begins with the Vedic Age.  "Return of the Aryans'"
 is the very first to trace India 's drama far back to Pre-Vedic roots.  








 We  in the Sindhi Nation, celebrate several events, rejoice in birthdays of great  personalities and pay handsome tributes to those who have enriched our lives, culture and heritage across countless centuries since the formation of Bharat Varsha.  
Yet one major personality whom our people often forget is Bharat who was the Karkarta (Elected Supreme Chief) of Sindhu Hindu Clan in 5000 BC.   It was in Bharat's honour, that the Indian sub-continent was named as BHARAT VARSHA (long after Bharat had retired as a hermit at the age of 60, in accordance with age-old custom).

While much had remained hidden in the graveyard of history for these long centuries, Bhagwan S. Gidwani has, with enormous research, brought to light in his book, Return of the Aryans, the story of Bharat and his life and times. As this masterly book shows, it was Bharat, in whose honour the Indian sub-continent was named as BHARAT VARSHA (long after Bharat had retired as a hermit at the age of 60, in accordance with age-old custom). Gidwani's book brings out the extraordinary and unmatched achievements of this great Sindhi.
Also, as Gidwani shows, it was Karkarta Bharat who had composed in 5085 BC, the SONG OF THE SINDHU HINDU to explain: WHO IS A HINDU? - His Identity, his Duty, and his Mission .
This great Song celebrates the principle of ancient Indian culture of all inclusiveness, excluding none from God's grace whatever their faith. Clearly it says, God's gracious purpose includes all human beings and all Creation, for God is the Creator and God is the Creation, that all are blessed and whatever God you choose he is that God and Dharma, righteousness or good conduct is His will. The Song stresses need for continuing search of truth and knowledge, for we can not be hostage to dogma or custom or present learning, but must strive to enlarge the heritage of mankind, for ours is a growing tradition and not a fixed Revelation. To the present day Indian, whatever his spiritual beliefs, conception of the Divine and his Cosmos, afflicted by misconceived ideas of pacifism  and non-violence, the song's message is clear. That he must remain strong and united for he must know that not an external outside force can ever crush him, except when he is divided and betrays his own.
By recalling and singing this Song, we pay respectful homage to the sacred earth of Sindh, which nurtured this breathtakingly advanced civilization of Sindhu-Saraswati. It is the common inheritance and the priceless treasure of both India and Pakistan . - in fact, the whole world. 
This scroll is to celebrate the Song of the Sindhu Hindu and to salute its Composer  Karkarta Bharat a gallant warrior, great nation-builder, statesman, poet, philosopher, and one who firmly believed in the humane ideals of Sanatan Dharma,  particularly his recognition of spiritual nature of man wherever he is from and acceptance of every culture as an expression of eternal values.
Many of you,  hopefully, will share my joy in celebrating Song of the Sindhu Hindu and re-affirming our faith in the values that its Composer Bharat put forth for harmony, tolerance, national integration, individual freedom and human rights.
