Heer Ranjha di zubaani !

'Let us tell a tale of Takht Hazara, that fabled place where Ranjhas held away and where handsome youths wanton and gay each more striking than the other dreamt eternally of sport and love.' Aj akhan Warris Shah nu Kithon kabran wichon bol Te aj kitab-i-isbq da Koi agla warqa phol Ik roi si dhi Punjab di Tu likh likh ware wain Aj lakhan dhian rondian Tainu Warris Shah nu kahan Uth tak apna Punjab Aj bele lashan wicbian Te lahu di bhari Chenab. (Oh, Warris Shah, I ask you to speak out from your grave and turn the newpage in the Book of Love. With the cry of one daughter of Punjab you created an epic and gave her tongue a life's lament. Today, millions of Punjab's daughters are waling and beckoning you to come out of your grave and listen to them. 0, angel of compassion have a look at your beloved Punjab whose green pastures are littered with corpses and rivers filled with blood) 'Suna jo raat woh qissa HeerRanjha ka To ahl - dard ko Punjabiyon ne loot liya' (Last night when I heard the story of Heer Ranjha I felt that the Punjabis took away my heart). Ji karda tu gallan kari java, te mai hugare bhari javaji karda mai tainu taki java, te tak tak tere te mari javaje mainu tu manaoda hove, mai jan jan ke tere naal larri javatu mahiwal vaag chahonda hove, mai kachiya te phir tari javaje duinya nu chhad mera hove,phir iss duniya naal mai larri java phir ho java teri kathputali, bas tere ishare te nach kari javatu aake hath mera je phar lave, mai vi phir tera palla pharri javaji karda tu mainu bachaon aave, mai ishaq di suli charri hova
