Genetically Baloch are actually seperated from south asia, they form their own cluster in central south asia region. I will be posting a new spread sheet on the pashtun dna thread, you can see all the genetic info in there
Sindhi topi - it was originally Balochi cap and now known as Sindhi topi.
"..among such other civilizing interactions a beautiful piece of cultural art is Sindhi Cap which was introduced among Sindhi natives from neighboring Baloch people.
A reason regarding the convey of Balochi cap among Sindhi people was that northern areas of Sindh is bordered with Baluchistan, for that basis the replacement of every aspect of life was order of the day.....Transaction of cap from Baloch to Sindhi people also seen several innovations seemingly correlated with Sindhi culture and the time came this cap has merged with particular Sindhi dress, sober structure, walking style etc: and called “Sindhi Cap. In any part of the Pakistan if you see some one worn Sindhi cap he must be thought Sindhi or resident of Sindh.
"

Some Baloch tribes moved from Balochistan and settled in Sindh fairly recently (historically speaking) and Baloch also ruled Sindh for some time before the British. People in South Asia prefer to marry within their own groups rather than making a decision to intermarry with other groups. However individuals from different groups sometimes marry across groups. Also some tribes forget their original language and background and adopt the language of the area where they settle (or natives sometimes adapt the language of newcomers) and then become "natives" of that area and over time start to marry with the natives. That's how mixing mostly occurred in South Asia - to my understanding. But these photos you printed here, I just see them as Sindhis of different appearances not as Sindhis looking like Baloch.

Karachi is for everyone, Pashtun, Sindhi, Mohajir, Bengali, Bihari, Memon whatever.

Don't troll Bharati. Mohajirs came to Pakistan. They had to live somewhere. How did they 'invade' or 'colonize' the Sindhis?

Did anyone see this in Karachi.. Mohatta Palace

Brief Intro:
The Mohatta Palace is located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It was built by Shivratan Chandraratan Mohatta, an ambitious self-made businessman from Marwar as his summer home in 1927. The architect of the palace was Agha Ahmed Hussain.[1] However, Mohatta could enjoy this building for only about two decades before independence of Pakistan and he left Karachi for India. He built the Palace in the tradition of stone palaces in Rajasthan, using pink Jodhpur stone in combination with the local yellow stone from Gizri. The amalgam gave the palace a distinctive presence in an elegant neighbourhood, characterised by Mughal architecture which was located not far from the sea.

Have you ever been to Karachi?
Have you been to Safora i.e., Gulistan-e-Johar Block 12
Sindhis are there on the streets.. Go to Civil hospitals and see for yourself .. Many doctors are ethnically Sindhi.

On street photos can be added

The Mohajir isn't an invader .. He is the Pakistani as much as the Sindhi is =]

What exactly the Sindhi leaders have done so far? Have a look at Larkhana? Go to Badeen?

If you don't do anything yourself .. don't complain..

some areas of sindh also get snow in the winter, which is surprising since it is so far south:

it actually snows just 250 km north of karachi in the winter

there is a national park called Kirthar national park, in it there is a mountain range called kirthar range and Gorakh hill where it snows in the winter, the mountain range is around 1200-1600 meters high

here is the location of kirthar national park, look how close is it to Karachi: http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&q=k...ed=0CGgQ_AUoAg



interior sindh can get really cold in the winter, snow has been reported in other areas also, especially where there is some higher elevation
