People are being caged


The ascendancy of inclemency,
The frigidity of winter
pulsating the bones of people

How awful!
Don't bewail for them now
Bear in mind the sacrifices;

People holding a grave ache in hearts
Brutalities carried out
Land realities shrouded

People are being caged
Killed by bullets and pellets,

Come to my land
Hey! people of the world
See,

The graves crammed by
the ingenuous youth of Kashmir,
Martyred in the game of politics.
