On June 16, 1819, an earthquake of uncommon severity for hardly two minutes, rocked the whole western India, the force of which most violently affected Kutchh and the tracts to the north of it. In Bhuj, nearly 7000 houses were overturned, and 1150 people buried in the ruins in twinkle of eyes. Most of the survived Ismaili families moved to safe places. Among them a caravan of Assa, trekked down through Lakhpat to Ramki Bazar in Sind. They further moved towards the lower Sind on horses and bullock carts and reached Hyderabad. He cemented his cordial relation with the princes of the ruling family of the Talpur Mirs. The ruler granted him a fief near Fulailee River, about a mile from the fort of Hyderabad. He professed in the farming and exported butter, milk and leather to other parts of India via Ramki Bazar in Badin, Sind.

Assa had six sons, the most famous were Alidina, Datardina and Baledina. His other three sons, whose informations are inaccessible had been killed in Jerruk on March 23, 1843. Nothing virtually is known about Datardina.
