An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri




O secluded Sangrampora
the sight of seven bodies
of your seven proud sons
shrouded in white
stands as a scathing testimony
to the sacrilege
against all that is human
and a severe indictment
of the savagery let loose
by senseless people
who shame mankind
and aim to smother sane voice
and sweep away
all traces of civilisation
from our sacred land;
for your brave sons chose to hold on,
vainly though, now it seems,
to their roots,
in the face of a violent hurricane
of religious frenzy
to keep alive the heritage
of five thousand years
in the valley.

Jammu - 25 March 1997
