Aaj Kitab e Ishq da, Koi Agala Varka Khol. - Wadali Brothers

A heartwrenching poem by Amrita Pritam written on her journey from Pakistan to India, when she observed Punjab burning, during the time of partition in 1947.




Aaj aakhan Waris Shah nu, kiton kabran vichon bol,
Te ajj kitabe ishq da koi agla varka khol. 


Ikk roi si dhee Punjab di, toon likh likh mare vain,
Ajj lakhan dheean rondi aan, tainun Warish Shah nu kahen.

Uth dardmandan dia dardia, Uth takk apana Punjab
Ajj bailey lashan vichhian, te lahu di bhari Chinab

Kise ne panjan paanian vich ditti zahar rala
Te ohna paanian dharat nu ditta paani la.

Is zarkhez zameen de looN looN phuttia zehar
gitth gitth charhian laalian foot foot charhia kehar.

Veh vallissi vaa pher, bann bann vaggi ja,
ohne har ik baans di vanjhali, ditti naag bana.

Pehley dang madarian, mantar gaye guach,
Dooje dang di lagg gayi, janey khaney nun laag.

laagaan keele lok munh, bus fir dang hi dang,
Palo pali Punjab de, neele pai gaye ang.

Galeon tutte geet fir, trakaleon tutti tand,
Trinjanon tuttian sahelian, charakhare ghookar band.

Sane sej de berian, luddan dittian rohr,
Sane dalian peengh aj, pippalan ditti torh.

Jitthe vajdi si phook pyar di, Ve oh vanjhali gayi goach
Ranjhe de sab veer aj, bhul gaye ohdi jach!

Dharti te lahoo vassiya, kabran paian choan,
Preet dian shahzadian, aj vich mazaran roan.

Aj sabb kaidon ban gaye, husan-ishq de chor,
Aj kitthon le ayiye labbh ke Waris Shah ikk hor.

Aj aakhan Waris Shah nu, kiton kabran vichon bole,
Te ajj kitabe ishaq da, koi agala varka phol.

Yes it hurts to see what has been going on today. A sad loss of life and property. Fires and carnage in so many parts of the country...
