Being a Sindhi I am proud
Jhulelal I chant around
Whether or not ….
…..with a prayerful sound
Yet I choose to turn a blind eye
To the other Sindhis all around
There are those on the other shore
For whom life’s become a constant chore
In misery and pain they breath
For religion’s sake they take a beat
Whipped and stoned,
shamed and tamed
Forced they are to chant Allah
Instead of Ram’s Holy name
And I, the proud Sindhi do nothing
And carry out with my selfish games
Living in comfort and luxury
I care not for their misery
It’s boring to read news about them
It’s a waste to watch videos of them
For, do I care about their suffering?
I am happy to place for God my offering
When God’s creation wilt away like flowers
plucked from their source…..
…..to be placed elsewhere
They may be Hindus like you and me
But, that doesn’t really bother me
Jhulelal will come and save them
Like he did our ancestors
Why should I waste my energy?
Why should I waste my time precious?
It gives me absolutely no benefit
Those Hindus and Sindhis in my Sindh
Are they made to be wasted like hyacinth?
Tortured, abused, raped, converted
For they committed a very big sin…
….by not being born of certain religion
Cursed day and night by the mighty men
In a country where faith is given a run
pointing fingers and hooking on the gun
by killing innocents their prayers are done
I give it no damn
For, I am a proud Sindhi under the sun
In my selfish manner I ignore all plea
I cut short to say I am helpless
But, the truth is I care no less
For I believe in myself
by praying, singing, chanting I become…
…. a proud Sindhi under the sun
Jhulelal shall forgive me for this run
I am shy to speak out my mind….
……or that is what I say
For, no one will listen to me, I say
But, the fact is I do not know what to say
as I feel not the pain of my brethren
I let them live their sojourn
Till death strikes a blow upon them
On their own land, they are traitors
For, they converted not from their religion
So what, if their houses get burnt?
So what, if their daughter face the brunt?
I am safe in various parts of the world
making no noise, sitting in my peace
I care not for them
A proud Sindhi I am under the sun
