  • Jhulelal, also known as Darya Lai or Udeoro Lai or Jinda Peer is the community God of the Sindhi community. His birth day, popularly celebrated as Cheti Chand on the 2nd day of the Chaitra month of the Indian Calendar is celebrated with traditional splendour and gaiety. As per the legend, Jhulelal was born in the 10th Century AD on the Cheti Chand day at Nasarpur, in Sind Province which is now in Pakistan. Jhulelal Sahib propagated the concept of one God and was loved and revered by people of all strata and communities. It is said that Mirkshah, the then ruler, was not only a tyrant but also a religious fanatic. The influence of Jhulelal was such that he began to treat everyone equally.
  • The message given by Jhulelal Sahib about the oneness of God is even more relevant in today’s environment where communal harmony is vital for the progress of a diverse country like India.
  • Text: Based on the material provided by the proponent.
