Roappal Kohunn Kalas Taaj
Karaan Yaarie Panun Raaj
Raesseull *Vehakh Turun *Maagh
Natchaan Vigienni Gyavaan Raag
“ Panun Bagh Matchhueil Bagh
Hutyein Boneiyee Yeityein Naag
Panun Bagh Matchhueil Bagh”
( Moti Lal saqi )

Snow clad silvery peaks ,
Like crowns on Mountain heads .
And over these mountains ,
Pine trees holding their own Kingdom.
A pleasurable Vaisakha !
A Cold Maagha !
Fairies Dancing singing Raagas ,
That is my Garden , My love filled Garden .
Endowed with Chinars Trees and springs ,
That is my Garden , My love filled Garden .
*Vehakh is the month of Vaisakh.It is spring time or Bahaar in kashmir.Maagh is the winter month or Magha.It is cold and snow time in kashmir.
