Finale :

Dr. Satish Kumar Rohra is a scholar and Doctor in linguistics, who has taught Hindi at Benares Hindu University for many years and has visited as Professor of Hindi in Guyana & Georgetown (South America) for 4 years.

Dr. Satish Kumar’s field of interest is literary criticism.  He has written so much in this area.  A collection of his critical essays entitled Chand Chhan is highly esteemed in the literary circles.  His recent book Bhasha and Bhasha Vigyan (Language & Linguistics) is a very comprehensive treatise on the subject and a welcome and significant contribution to the Sindhi language.

Occasionally he indulges in fiction writing and pens a short story or two.  He has brought out two collections of short stories.  Two qualities stand out: his flawless language and flourishe of philosophical thoughts.

Rohra’s historic and monumental work is building of Institute of Sindhology, a cultural centre at Adipur (Gandhidham) for the preservation and a promotion of Sindhi culture and its rich heritage, along with other comrades.
