Ali Nawaz & Shamshad Nawaz - Founders of Roshni Publication
Roshni publication was founded in the year 1980 by Mr. Ali Nawaz Ghanghro and his better-half and a great pillar of support, Mrs. Shamshad Nawaz Ghanghro, at Kandiaro. Prior to the setting up of his publication house, Mr. Nawaz was associated with the publication wing of Sain G.M Syed's political party. But at a later stage he had to part ways because there he was engaged with the production of only political content and he wanted to achieve his niche in the world of Sindhi literature. During its fomenting years, in the early 1980s, the RP started with the publication of its first magazine by collecting funds from friends. After the first magazine met with the commercial as well as the critical success, Roshni Publication plunged into the field of publishing Sindhi literature books full time. Today, it holds a record number of more than 1200 literary titles of which nearly 300 are global literature translations into Sindhi language and 300 are its best selling classics. Its main aim was to create quality books for readers of all age and strata. Recently, it has achieved another milestone by setting up a Sindhi-English Translation Bureau, and a separate English Editorial Branch. With their untiring efforts and unflinching resolve, Mr. & Mrs. Ali Nawaz have been successful enough to establish this well disciplined and reputable company.
