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
Do plant a flower in the desert garden
Having fallen to bullets we slept in
Do light a lamp on this lonely grave
The blood of Hindus and Muslims flows
Do soak your robe in this river of blood
Some rot in jails while others lie in their
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!
