It was only a century ago a boy named Bhagat Singh, all of eight years, was growing guns in his fields.

ਮੇਰੀ ਉਮਰ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਦਾ ਵੇਖ ਲੈ

ਤੂੰ ਹਰ ਇਕ ਵਰਕਾ ਪੜ੍ਹ ।

ਜਦੋਂ ਭਾਰੀ ਬਣੀ ਹੈ ਮਾਂ 'ਤੇ

ਮੇਰੇ ਪੁੱਤਰ ਆਏ ਚੜ੍ਹ ।

Open the book of my life,

Each and every page you read.

When mother faced threats

My sons have risen and led.

(Afzal Randhawa @ Tikri)

Sukhdev Singh is milking a buffalo when I call him. We are speaking after a long gap. His voice carries the same cheerful energy I remember....
