Happy New Years

My friends will be waiting

For my new year greetings wishing them happiness
Oh my friend!
How can I wish happy new Year to you
As yet I still have to guard my heritage under constant threat of humiliation.

The turban of my Father is rolling somewhere in the dust
It might be waste in the dark corner of some police station.
After the murders of our mothers and sisters, tears have been unceasing.
Our innocent boys who are soft as flowers lie beneath the bridges, below the trees murdered in false encounters.

Our sister's honour remains unavenged since the Delhi massacre
I am in great and constant grief like the tender butterfly that flutters and
turns white with fear, Whose wings have turned grey with the passing of time.

In this struggle I may not be recognised and may get lost
And in this dreadful situation in what way can I then convey my New year greetings to you.

We will wait for better times.

Then shall I send such greetings
When Spring visits our garden.

Really. Deep. And painful.

And still we wait.

But patience is running out. Mine is, at least.

I read the post at www.sikhlionz.com, its very disheartening that so many so called Sikhs (politicians/policeman/ or officials at the central govt) were involved in bringing the Khalistan movement down.

Even today, the people who are in Power have no interest at all to discuss/resolve the Sikh issues, Akali's are partners with the RSS-BJP and are going full throttle in their anti Sikhi mission, no wonder if BJP kicks them out and we have a hindu CM for Punjab, things will be worst then, time for us to react fast.
