Unity in diversity..!

​Don’t forget the days of blood, O friend

 In the midst of your happiness remember

 to shed a tear for us

 The hunter has torn away every single

 flower

 Do plant a flower in the desert garden

 dear friend

 Having fallen to bullets we slept in

 Jallianwala Bagh

 Do light a lamp on this lonely grave

 O friend

 The blood of Hindus and Muslims flows

 together today

 Do soak your robe in this river of blood

 dear friend

 Some rot in jails while others lie in their

 graves

 Do shed a few tears for them O friend.

 ~Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA)

This song was composed and sung in the memory of those who died in the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar!
