In the extreme winter month of Poh, Panjab longs for her love. Her lover replies, “She is his heartbeat.”

In the extreme winter month of Poh, Panjab longs for her love. Her lover replies, “She is his heartbeat.”

It is the month of Poh.
Frost covers the fields.
I long for you.
Where are you?

It is the month of Poh.
Frost covers the Delhi nights.
Resting at the Farmers Protests.
Is where I am.

Beautiful Punjab!
You are here with me.
My every breath is you.
I am here for you.

It is you that is guiding me,
To follow Sikh principles.
It is you that is urging me,
To repeal the Farm Laws.

It is your song that nurtures me.
It is your water that sweetens me.
It is your food that strengthens me.
I am here for you.

My heart beats for you.
My every breath is you.
Will, you wait for me,
My beautiful Panjab!

No More Blue Stars

In recent years, diasporic Sikhs have been moving to consciously avoid using the terms Operation Blue Star or Holocaust and instead use terms like the Battle of Amritsar, genocide, or Ghallughara when speaking about June and November 1984.
