 Siraiki Language and Its Poetics: An Introduction
For a variety of reasons, Siraiki has never been the language of the literate, political, and religious elite and priesthood who, since they were often foreigners, at various times, chose the so called classical languages such as Sanskrit, Arabic, Farsi, and later on, English and Urdu as their mode of written communication.

 The Poetry of Syed Hassan Raza Gardezi
It was not until the later part of the decade of 1960S that modern Siraiki poetry began to appear noticeably in publication, although some Siraiki speaking writers had already made their mark in modern Urdu literature.
It was in this social historical context that a new generation of Siraiki poets began to write, exploring new styles and forms more appropriate to face head-on the contemporary issues and challenges posed by their immediate environment and the universal condition of humankind.
Of these modern Siraiki poets, Hassan Raza Gardezi is truly a path blazer whose poetic imagination and creativity has established new directions for his contemporaries and successors to follow.

 Guidelines and priorities, Pakistani languages other than Hindi and Urdu
The next priority appears to be for development of materials for Panjabi as spoken in Pakistan, and for the closely related Siraiki and Hindko.
It must be remembered that, with the exception of Siraiki and Hindko, each of them is spoken in at least one neighboring country--Baluchi in Iran and Afghanistan, Pashto in Afghanistan, Panjabi and Sindhi in India.
It was agreed that the most productive strategy in the case of languages enjoying less demand would be to develop databases of texts, plus (where possible) audio and video files, together with the coordinates of scholars working on them who would be willing to be contacted by others.

Since Siraiki too has implosive sounds, it too may have become a separate language around this period.
But Siraiki shares its vocabulary, or at least a major part of the core vocabulary, with Punjabi so that the present writer is unsure whether Siraiki is a sister of Punjabi which picked up some features of the Sindhi sound-system (phonology) or a sister of Sindhi which picked up Punjabi words as Grierson suggests.
In short, Sindhi, Punjabi, Siraiki and some form of Hind Ko as well as the Dardic languages were spoken in some form or the other in the area now comprising Pakistan.
