Prabhu Jotumal Chhugani 'wafa' was a great poet of Sindhi. His poetry has made him immortal. He was born on 19th Sep 1915 in Larkana, Sindh. His poetry is sung by almost all the leading Sindhi Singers. I was in regular contact with him. My mother Sundri Uttamchandani always showed her poems to him and seeked his advise.Prabhu 'wafa' wrote 8 books and received many awards for his great work. He received Sahitya Akademi Award in 1981 on his book 'Surkh gulab Surha Khuwab' سُرُخ گلاب ، سُرها خواب
Sindhis should feel proud of such a poet whoes creations have been sung by almost all the singers.
Dada Ram Panjwani was always singing 'Kashat Kashala Katba Wenda hiku thi Hiku Hiku thi...' ڪشٽ ڪشالا ڪٽبا ويندا هڪ هڪ ٿي هڪ هڪ ٿي....
