An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri




We live to share your grief
and die to suffer your agony
as they ravage you and defile
and drive us into exile.

In wilderness we wander
sans our souls
that we left behind,
nothing do our ears hear
but your heart-rending groans
and all that our eyes see
are the wounds that bleed thee.

Our memories have fled us,
what lingers is your ignominy.
Now our feet only seek the paths
that lead us back to thee.
Our speech ends in one refrain:
as we take in hand the mighty pen
to fight the terrorist gun.

Dearer to us than all the worlds
we pledge to reclaim thee
as our spirit craves
the land of our birth
and the lips thirst
to kiss the earth
of that sacred land,
our homeland.

Jammu - 16 December 1991
