Javed Zaki’s poem dedicated to Paash

I have thoroughly read ‘PAASH” poetry (Inkaar). He was a great revolutionary, killed by fundamentalists for his progressive ideals and work. As a matter of fact, I dedicated one of my poems to him…

 

Tandoor bhakhao tandoor…

GallaaN chhaddo aahre laggo…

gille chhoade vi bhakh posan…

tusi dhoni val khayaal rajhao…

Dhoni di laat da manaara bansi…

Te aale dwaale diaaN saariaaN chungaaN…

kirmo kirmi kirsun…

Dhoni di laat naabhar (rebel) gabh-rooaaN de piR buj poan da nishaan bansi…

Maae  bukht bhare, naabhar sheedaaN de vaen nieN paai de…

OnhaaN de dhole gaai de ne…

OhnaaN de naaN ratte jhandiaaN te likkh ke…

Aazadi di sik (chahat) nooN chaRhaave chaRhaai de ne…

OhnaaN de naaN bakhde mathiaaN (foreheads) te likkh ke…

Khalqat vich gumm (lost) thi jaai da e…

EviN bulsi dive toaN diva…

OhnaaN de naaN jungel bailiaaN te vassan aale kaale badlaaN de monhaaN (faces) te likkh chhoRi da e…

EviN Dulla Bhatti, Ahmad khharl te Bhagat Singh jaie naabhar gabh-rooaaN de jhund ugsan…

Tandoor bakhaan da unt mudh…

Te fer paksan roat (large breads).
