Sassi Sindh mein Bhambore kay aik Raja ke bete thee. Sassi ke pedaesh kay moqa per najamiyo ne kaha thaa woh apne khandandane waqar kay liye manhoos sabit ho ge. Lahaza Sassi kay baap ne hukm sadir keya thaa kay es larke ko lakre kay sandoq mein band ker kay Darya-e-Sindh mein phank deya jaye.

Dhobe Pannu se kehta woh kapre dhoye aur khud ko Sassi ka mustahiq sabit kare. Pannu shahana andaz ka aade hota hai aur apne kapre kabih khud nahain dhoye hote hain to us se kapre phat jate hain. Gaou walo se yeh baat chupane kay liye woh kapro mein sone kay sikke chupa deta hai. Youn woh dhobe ko shadi kay liye razamand ker leta hai.

Woh us ke shadi pe bakhushi shamil ho jate hain aur Pannu ko suhrag raat ko mukhtalif qisam ke sharabe zabardasti pila dete hain. Jub Pannu bayhosh ho jata to woh usse unt pe laad kay Kech kay apne abaye elaqe mein le jate hain.
Agle din Sassi jub jagte hai to usse samajh aate hai us kay saath dhoka ho gya hai. Woh sadme kay mare nange paou Kech Makran ke terf nange paou bhagna shoro ker dete hai. Sassi ko registano se guzarna perta hai aur us kay hont pyaas se sokh jate hain. Woh raste mein Pannu, Pannu ke awazain lagate jate hai. Aik gadariya aik jhonpre se bahir nikalta hai. Woh Sassi ko pene kay liye pani deta hai leakin Sassi ka husn dekh ker us ke niyyat kharab hone lagte hai. Sassi bhag jate hai aur dua kerte hai kay Allah usse perda day de. Allah us ke dua sun leta hai aur zameen phatate hai aur Sassi aik paharo ke wade mein dafan ho jate hai. Pannu Makran mein jub jagta to woh Bhambore ke terf wapis bhagna shoro ker deta hai aur raste mein Sassi, Sassi pukarta jata hai. Gadariya usse bhi milta hai aur sare dastan sonata hai. Pannu bhi Sassi wale dua mangta hai aur zameen phat jate aur phir Pannu bhi usse pahare wade mein dafan ho jata hai. Kech Makran, Balochistan, Pakistan mein aaj bhi Sassi aur Pannu ke aramgahain majood hain.
Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai ne es dastan ko bohat khoobsorat shyrana andaz mein likha howa hai.
Eternal love can be considered a love that cannot be defined or a love that’s everlasting. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” When Sassi, a beautiful girl abandoned by the Raja and adopted by a washerman and Pannu, a prince, were of age they met and married. They fell in love at first sight. They never imagined that their love story would form a part of a collection of popular romantic tragedies from Shan Jo Risalo. “Shan Jo Risalo is a poetic collection of famous Sindhi Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai.” Sassi Pannu is a famous folktale told in Sindh, Pakistan that embodies love, tragedy, deceit, and determination.
This recognized love story is about a woman named Sassi who endures quandaries while on a journey to find her husband Pannu. While on a mystical path, Pannu sets out on a quest to find God and though on his voyage he undergoes all kinds of tribulation. Being a descendant of royal blood, Pannu’s father and brothers were against his marriage to Sassi and her father was disheartened because he wanted her to marry a washerman and none other. On the eve of the second day of marriage, to Pannu’s surprise, his brothers were supporting his marriage while engaging and participating in the celebrations. Unbeknownst to him, they forced him to drink various wines and when he was intoxicated they returned him home to Kech.
The story ends by the lovers meeting their end. While infuriated with grief, Sassi sets out to Kech to find her husband. Along the way she encounters help from a shepherd and distress. She prayed to God for help and when answered the land trembled and divided. When Pannu awoke, he set out towards Bhambore in search of his wife. He comes across the same shepherd and the shepherd told Pannu the whole story. He prayed to God and when answered the land trembled and divided. They are both buried in the same valley of mountains. To which this graves still exists.
