and
Farewell, O Setting Sun | ਅਲਵਿਦਾ

1 October 2016

Translated from the Punjabi to the English by Nirupama Dutt

Farewell, O Setting Sun
Do return tomorrow
I will bow before you
But I will not indulge
In the ritual of
Offering you water
I will take up arms
You may even hide the Moon
I will take up arms
Don’t you know
Humanity is the fire of the sun
Whose songs light the lamp
Of your glow!
Namaskar!
Farewell…
O Setting Sun!
