FROM RIVER BANKS TO DESERTS , THE EXILES SAW  A JOURNEY OF PAIN AND SUFFERING.
(Photo Autar Mota Dec 2013)

I add lines from A Poem of noted kashmiri poet late Moti Lal saqi to this photo ..i have also rendered the lines to simple english for friends who do not understand kashmiri ...

Soora Phyaakh Sapadiethh ta Veithhii Munz Baavizeum
Be wattan Gatchhanuk Dinumm Yaaenii Taana Lookh.
Krooth raavun Tyol Ta yaadan hundh Alaav
Kyaa Phaban sekiliss Andher Mastaana lookh

( Moti Lal Saqi )

After I turn to a handful of Ash , consign me to River Vitasta ( Jhelum )
Lest people ridicule me as an exile from his motherland .
Bitter is their lament of loss and with this noise of memories around ,
Shall these carefree people survive in these lifeless deserts ?
