Few lines on Kashmir Valley that is undergoing the worst of turmoils
“Gar firdaus, ruhe zamin ast, hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast”,
Which, translates to
“If there is ever a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here in Kashmir.”
What should have been the valley of smiles,
Has turned into a stone pelters den,
A misguided nuisance,
Not in the interest of anyone.
When Kashmir bleeds,
Separatists are relieved,
But when there is serene,
Separatists feel the demean.
From valley to the mountains,
From lakes to the rivers,
From tourism to winter sports,
You have a whole lot of things.
Nesting in between,
Korakoram and Zanskar,
Pir Panjal and Himalyas,
And in and around,
Hazratbal, Mata and Amarnath,
You have so much to pride and revere.
So, in those blessed and scenic surroundings,
What made you pick up stones?
What made you devastate your own home?
And what made you surrender to those rogues?
What makes you feel India is not your own,
And Pakistan is your home,
The grass is not greener on other side,
Take it from someone who is known.
Use the stones to build the valley,
Use the stones to preserve the valley,
Use the stones to kill the enemy,.
Use the stones to rip the separatist.
India is your home,
Where you’ve grown,
So leave Pakistan alone,
And fight for your country’s throne.
