The Piedmont of Khirthar Mountains of Sindh.

Sandy, stony, and rocky roads,
Curved and zigzags with grassy routes,
on both sides of the road till the hill ends.

The history spread out on tens of thousands years,
When our forefathers poured down the blood,
To secure the land and its borders from the invaders.

The great walls of Rani Kot Fort are evident,
Of our forefathers they defended our land,
In the line of duty they drained out their blood.

The blood boils there in the silence even today,
The souls of our forefathers return to see,
Its people, its rocky surfaces within the borders.

They fought against the Greek, the Tatars,
The Afghans and tyrants Arabs till the decades,
The foreign invader's plundering and loot.

Fortunately; the land preserves its everything,
The culture, the art, language and its geography,
Since the two millenniums and exists even todays.

The nation follows the legacy of their forefathers,
The legacy of resistance revives even after,
The defeat, we rise again from the ashes of our past. .

The history repeats on the both ends,
The plunderers and the plundered,
Planning both with the same intentions.

All has changed the time, space , and the tactics,
From horse, to tanks, and arrows to bullets,
Lands remains same but generations changed.

The every one has to learn from the history,
The victors and the vanquished of the Sindh,
We still exist on our land from past to present.

The past invader requires asylum over our land,
Uninvitedly spending his life with bread and butter,
Ohh, poisonous invaders remove your footprints.

This is the land of people whom never had,
The history of genocide, war crimes, and terror,
My land is pure and perfect from all crimes.

We love peace and tranquility beyond our borders,
Neither loot, nor plundering is permitted here,
Only the human dignity is allowed to prevails.

About this poem

The historic Khirthar Mountain Range of Sindh remained center of resistance against the tyrants of Afghanistan and Iran during 14 the century to 16the century. Sindhis fought against the occupier's vehemently. Sindhis fought so valiantly that 11 out of 20 were killed and run away to save their lives. The Khirthar Mountain Range played key role in resistance against the occupation of Sindh. Their remnants are still here and we have to fight with them.
