By Mehraj Dar


I’ve a right
I’ve a choice
I’ve a reason
I’ve a voice
I cried & screamed
They deaf & blind
I’m Kashmir
My soil is drenched
Colour is red

I was tortured
I was burnt
I was stormed
I was raided
I was murdered
I was hanged
I’m Kashmir
My soil is drenched
Colour is red

I’m gifted
I’m blessed
I’m a legacy
I’m a history
I was heaven
Now I’m hell
I’m Kashmir
My soil is drenched
Colour is red

I’m dejected
I’m neglected
I’m divided
My right denied
My voice muzzled
I’m not tired
I’m Kashmir
My soil is drenched
Colour is red

Tried selling me
Tried leasing me
Tried dealing me out
I raised my voice
Against their might
I’m not helpless
I’m Kashmir
My soil is drenched
Colour is red

They’ll bomb me
They’ll drone me
They’ll cage me in
Dead or Alive
Or paralyzed
I’ll still rise
I’m Kashmir
My soil is drenched
Colour is red
