      Shah Latif promoted women characters known as Surmis (Heroines) in his Risalo.. There are total 7 Surmis of Shah, each have a distinct quality.. If Sassi was portrayed as symbol of struggle, Marvi as a symbol of patriotism, then Noori from Laar (Lower Sindh) has been portrayed as a symbol of simplicity and meekness.. A daughter of poor fisherman Keenjhar (Keenjhar lake is named after him) became queen of then powerful Samma ruler, but she remained as simple as she was at her father's home and won the heart of the King.

      Story of Noori


      King Jam Tamachi was a Samo ruler of lower Sind at the end of the 14th century A.D. While on a shooting expedition, he chanced to see a fisher girl named Noori, falling madly in love with her and offered to married her, his love for her blind to the social disparity between them.


      When they returned back to his capital, he was made aware of the general disapproval of this match. He merely observed that the detractors did not know her as much as he did. In order to display her character and appease the cynics, one day, he announced to his queens, that he would take one of them for a ride on an outing.

      All the queens put on elaborate makeup and their best clothing, but not Noori. On the contrary, she put on her old family garment, perhaps the one she wore when the kind has seen her first. When Jam Tamachi visited the queens, she smiled at them and moved on. When he saw Noori, in her simple attire, he was greatly impressed. He nodded her approval at her and led her by the hand to the royal carriage.


      When they were alone, he enquired from her about her dress. She tells him that the dress reminded her of what she inherently was, and what she owed the king for her elevation. The king was charmed with her simplicity and sincerity and the legend of their happy lives have become part of the Sindhi folklore immortalized by Shah Latif.





      To be continued for historical perspective of the tale and its overall impact on Sindhi society...

      A Documentary dealing with history of Noori Jaam Tamachi.



      The Documentary in Sindhi, so I will be posting summary of main points discussed in the documentary.. Its worth watching (even you don't understand the language), because it contain videos of some historical places related to story.

      Main points in this part:


      Nooris ancestors migrated from Malabar India and they were called Maangar.. The Maangar women inherited beautify, so Noori was also a beautiful girl who impressed Jaam Tamachi at first sight, even she was in her simple attire.

      Shah latif stories are normally female oriented, but the male characters of 'Shah Jo Risalo', have a common quality and that is they came down from their social status to achieve their love. Be it Punnhu (Sassi Punnhu) who was prince of Ketch Makran who fall in love with the daughter of a Dhobi (Washer man), Izzat Baig (Mehwal) who was son of a rich trader and fall in love with Sohni, daughter of Kumhar (Potter). Same is the case with Samma ruler Jaam Tamachi, who became immortal in history by coming down from his status to achieve his love Noori, daughter of a fisher man.

      Researchers like Dr Nabi Bux baloch, claims that Noori was herself from rich family, daughter of a Raja Jassundar Rai. When the girl was born, she was affected of Korh (leprosy) and Raja asked her maid to take out the girl outside palace somewhere else. The maid handed over the girl to fishermen, where she was brought up like their children.

      But other researcher based on lines of Shah Jo Risalo believe that this is a fabricated story by those, who wanted to prove that Jaam Tamachi didn't marry a girl from a poor family with low status. Researchers also deny that Sassi was also daughter of a Brahmin who thrown her in river after knowing that she would marry a Muslim.

      Like conflict in Noori's being daughter of a fisherman or a daughter of Raja, graves of Noori Jaam Tamachi are also subject to different and conflicting views. As per popular belief, Noori is buried on a small island in middle of Keenjhar lake.. There are two graves on the island. One of Noori and other is not of Jaam Tamachi, but a saint called Shah Hoondaro, who is saint of Mahunas (Fishermen). As per traditions, Noori got rid of Korh (leprosy) due to prayers of this saint and therefore she was a Mureed and devotee of this saint. After her death, she was buried besides him.

      Other traditions say that Noori is buried in Makli graveyard alongwith her husband Jaam Tamachi.. Their tomb in Makli is not in good condition to resolve this mystery.

      Jaam Tamachi (Rukn Din Shah) ruled Sindh during 1362-75 & 1388-92. In between he was arrested and remained in Delhi. After death of Feroz Shah of Delhi, he was freed and again rule Sindh till his death. He was very popular among people, as he mixed with them like a common man. Shah Latif's poetry also tell us that after marrying Noori, he used to visit Fishermen at Keenjhar and use to hunt fish with them In Shah's words:

      Aayo Jaam Tamachi Keenjhar Kinaray
      Jhaaro Jam kullhay te aen Machiyoon payo Maaray

      (Jhaaro = Jaal /net, Kullhay = Shoulders / Kandhay)

      In late 90's Director Muhammad Bux Samejo with the help of writer Mehmood Mughal made a serial 'Noori Jaam Tamachi'. The basic concept was taken from the story of Shah Latif by modernizing 14th Century characters into 20th century people.
