Welcome to The Memon World

 

  

The Memon community is one of the prominent business community of the world. 

It is known for its enterprising spirit, business acumen and philanthropic activities. Before 1947, the majority of the community was located in the Gujrat 
and Kathiwar regions of the pre-partition India. After partition more than 50% of 
the community migrated to Pakistan where they mainly settled in cosmopolitan city of Karachi. A number of members of community settled in U.A.E, UK, Canada and United States. A sizeable number of people are settled in South Africa for almost one hundred years. The migration of the community has created a new problem. Being away from its birth place and intermingling with the people of different 
cultural background, our new generation is barely aware of communities' origin, history, culture and language. This poses a problem of maintenance of a separate identity of community in the years to come.  

 

DO YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR IDENTITY AS A MEMON    ALIVE ? IF SO READ, WRITE & SPEAK MEMANI. THIS WEBSITE CAN HELP YOU IN THIS REGARD SEE THE 
MAIN MENU.

 

The objective of this site is to familiarize the new generation to the community’s origin, history, culture and language. The launching of this website is a solo effort by one individual and therefore it may have some deficiencies. The comments and suggestions from visitors to the site will be therefore, most welcome.

The website www.memonworld.com.pk is a comprehensive website of the community. Although, the is still being given final touches, you can visit it and have glimpses of  community’s history & culture. The site also provides a special section on “Teach Yourself Memoni” to help youngsters of those of our brothers who have settled beyond the boundries of India & Pakistan. It has sections of Memoni Prose and Poetry as well as Memoni Proverbs in Roman Script besides brief profile of over 176 prominent personalities of the community and a short dictionary.
