The inspiration


Original in Urdu:

کانٹے والی تار پی کسنے گیلے کپڑے تانگے ہے

خون ٹپکتا رہتا ہے اور نالی میں بہ جاتا ہے

کیوں اس فوجی کی بیوہ ہر روز یہ وردی دھوتی ہے

—-Gulzar

 

Transliteration:

Kaante wali taar pe kisne gile kapdhe taange hai

Khoon tapakta hai Aur Naali mein beh jaata hai

Kyun iis fauji ki bewa har roz yeh wardi dhoti hai.

 

Translation by Pavan Verma

Who has hung these wet clothes on the barbed wire?

Blood drips and flows into the gutter

Why does this soldier’s widow wash his uniform every day…
