Sindhi is an official regional language of Pakistan, where it is spoken in the Sindh province. It has a smaller population in India, mostly in the states of Gujarat, Rajastan and Maharashtra. In Pakistan, Sindhi is written with a version of the Arabic script, whereas in India the Devanagari script - also used for Hindi - may be used. The language is derived from Sanskrit but more recent additions to vocabulary come from Arabic, Persian and Urdu.Learn Sindhi with uTalk
