Listen to the amazing dirge by the renowned Punjabi Poet Amrita Pritam, 'Ajj Aakhaan Waris Shah Nu' ('Today I Invoke Waris Shah').
Punjab, the land of five rivers, of whose beauty has been sung by poets throughout history. Sometimes the poet claims, 'In the most beautiful of lands is the land of Punjab, Just like a rose surrounded by flowers' (Babu Firoz Din Sharaf) and sometimes states, 'This beautiful land of the Gurus and the peoples of Punjab, To whom even the sun bows to salam!' (Rajdeep Singh Jammu).
But even Punjab has faced its harships, which have been enscribed in this poem of Amrita Pritam.
