Holocaust after partition



It was holocaust after partition
Little spark had resulted into ignition
Brothers and neighbors had turned into enemy
It was not wish of any faith or almighty

No one knew what prompted genocide
It was agreed to but didn't result into peaceful divide
Houses were burnt and millions were butchered
All over the region bodies could be found mutilated and charred

Was it for peaceful homeland?
Was there any need for division of motherland?
No one could answer then as friend
And not now even at the end

Two nations came into being with reality
Hostile propaganda coupled with relation in poor quality
Migration from both sides to take revenge on each other
Lots of refugee problems and future concern to share

It is difficult to understand hatred theory
What a shame on humanity to feel so much sorry!
Murders, loot and burning along the road sides
Miles long queues for crossing the borders on both sides

Families separated with deep wounds of hostile acts
There was nothing more to offer and react
Both sides had suffered heavily and bore the brunt
Still people were blood thirsty and continued to hunt

It is no use to blame any side or show sympathy
People were reeling under pain and felt apathy
No one was there to wipe out their tears
As each one was gripped with the fears

National anthem was played to celebrate the birth of nation
There was bitterness with bad patches in the relation
No one seemed happy at the heavy price paid for
It was worst destruction even not faced by war

Generations after generations may change
Yet deep wounds may never go with the age
Ask any one who had not lost his dear one?
It was bloody partition but price paid by everyone
* Scene at the time of India, Pakistan partition*
