About Us

Some times during December 2010, over a cup of tea a few of the individuals from the twin cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad having their origin from the district of Sylhet or Srihatta of the undivided Bengal (now Bangladesh) were informally discussing the possibility of bringing in all the people having their origin from Sylhet / Srihatta from Hyderabad & Secunderabad under one umbrella, thus incepting the concept of forming the Sreehatta Sammilani at Hyderabad.

It took the team close to one year of untiring effort to build the organization from a dream to a reality in the form of Dakkhini Sreehatta Sammilani, Hyderabad that was formally declared on 28th April 2011.

Dakkhini Sreehatta Sammilani (DSS) is a socio-cultural organization of Sylheti speaking people of the twin city of Hyderabad & Secunderabad and is registered under the Societies Registration Act 1960. DSS has also been recognized by All India Federation of Sreehatta Sammilani, New Delhi as the nodal agency and representative of the the sylheti community of Hyderabad & Secunderabad.

DSS is a purely non-political socio-cultural organization dedicated to community development. This fledging organization envisages, bringing within its fold, all the individuals in the twin cities and the neighbourhood belonging to the Sylhet or Srihatta district of the undivided Bengal, known for its distinct dialect and rich culture. Sylhet was a hub of progressive activities in the undivided Bengal.

In the pre-partition era many ‘Sylhetis’, (as the people of the district are more popularly known as), relocated themselves in different parts of India primarily for the purpose of livelihood. Since then, numerous ‘Sylhetis’ held important posts in the government departments as well as in the private sector. Many of the ‘Sylhetis’ has also entered into private ventures of their own and has been very successful.

Hyderabad became a chosen home for many ‘Sylhetis’ who have found peace and prosperity in this progressive cosmopolitan city. Besides, Hyderabad also temporary home for many floating Sylheti population who came to the city with temporary posting.

DSS is an endeavor to bring in all the ‘Sylhetis’ of this part of the country together, on to a common platform to care and share interest of common well being, and share the riches of local culture and to keep the language and culture of Sylhet alive.

In the longer run the organization has the larger intension of growing as a philanthropic body to assist the deserving needy. Like any responsible organization, it is well cognizant of its duties and responsibilities towards the society.
