Social Background by Hiroo L.Thariani.
Graduated in engineering, worked for Sarabhai Engineering Group as a trainee engineer rose to the level of Branch Manager during period of 5 years.
Entrepreneur skills within me helped start my own business in which I was very successful & finally passed on the business to my son in 2002.
I was always interested in drama and theatre from my college days and my passion for Sindhi language linked me to top three Sindhi theatre groups of dedicated artists performing Sindhi plays. I have performed hundreds of stage plays across the nation including Kolkata, Chennai, Ajmer, Delhi, Bhopal and outside India in Dubai. The humor in me always helped me – be it in domestic life or on the stage or even in the professional life.
My passion for the growth of the language encouraged me and further supported by friends fraternity to take another bold step towards patronization of electronic media by projecting our Sindhiyat on a larger scale which I thought is the best way to reach the audience which is so widely spread all over India and entered this medium initially through different channel operators like Gurrjari, Lashkara , Hinduja channel in Mumbai before launching my own program on DD channel network.
Presently producing Sindhi TV programs (SINDHUDARSHAN) along with partner shree J.C. Bharwani & running continuously for the past 8 yrs which presently is being telecast at 10pm every Friday & repeat on Sunday at 1.30pm on Prasar Bharati’s DD Bharati with confirmed viewership (presence) in more than 200 locations of India, Pakistan, U.A.E. & African continent including Nairobi, Togo & Lome.
The sole objective is to promote and preserve Sindhi Language, Heritage & Culture successfully using satellite medium which is the most cost effective in bringing together far and widespread Sindhi community on one platform and facilitating them with entertainment through powerful media of Electronics and Information Technology.
We started working in a small way in different pockets of India where the Sindhis are concentrated Ulhasnagar (MH), Delhi NCR, Jaipur (RAJ), Bhopal and Indore (MP), Ahmedabad, Baroda, Rajkot, Surat, (Gujrat), Raipur and Bilaspur ( C.G), Hyderbad and Secundrabad (AP), Chennai (TN), Bangalore (KN), Calcutta ( WB) to name few, who also nurtured the same dream of getting united for the preservation of the language and they joined hands and today with of dedicated interaction have reached an interactive audience of more than 5,00,000 which is nearly 5% of the total Sindhi population in India.
On the cultural front all main organizations may it be social, religious or cultural like BRAHMAKUMARIS, SADHU VASWANI MISSION, SINDHI COUNCIL OF INDIA, GLOBAL SINDHI COUNCIL, INTERNATIONAL SINDHI SAMMELAN(USA), SINDHI YOUTH CIRLCE ULHASNAGAR, BADTE KADAM OF RAIPUR AND KATNI to name few who send their events to be showcased in Sindhudarshan Sindhi TV program for integration, entertainment & information.
We have created a team of freelancer Journalists more than 250 who constantly interact with the channel and send all programs to be relayed from all over India and abroad .
I have always nurtured an aim to get Sindhis in the mainstream and gel with other communities so that with the passage of time our young generation does not feel the gap.
