Shaheed : Rang De Basanti Cholaa

Friday, December 28, 2007

…badaa hee gehraa daag hai yaaron jis kaa ghulaami naam hai.
deep is this scar, this scar called slavery.
us kaa jeenaa bhi kyaa jeena jiska desh ghulam hai.
how utterly shameful to continue to live a shackled life.
seenay mein jo dil thaa yaaron, aaj banaa woh sholaa.
the heart that flickered in me has exploded today into flames.
mayraa rang de basanti cholaa, maae rang de basanti cholaa…
color me the color of martyrdom, o great mother, color me the color of martyrdom…
