I'll wait for the day

 

For once,let's keep aside the bars of caste and creed,

And give ourselves the heeling we need;

For once, let's rise above religion,

And rise for the nation;

For once, let's forego the image of a peaceful India,

And show the world that we too, can retaliate;

For once, let's not think of being a member of the Big Five,

And cry for the innocent who lost their lives;

For once, on the face of the earth let's forget the Treaty of Peace,

And salute the brave hearts who saved our land;

Let's not repeat the mistake our forefathers did,

And see our country broken into bits;

I'll wait for the day when in its true sense,

We'll call Kashmir, a substitute for heaven.
