Jhelum Lyrics

Verse 1

The Jhelum river searches for its shore

The sun set’s over unknown eyes

The sun sets over the eyes of the unknown

The Jhelum river turned saline

It searches for its shore

Jhelum describes the bloodshed and violence that once persisted around the Jhelum river. It flows across India and Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Gulzar aptly describes the situation of the river in the last line. 

Situated in a rather precarious area, the Jhelum river searches for its shore- an identity. As violence continues to erupt at the border, the Jhelum river finds itself in the middle of this bloodshed.

Verse 2

Whom do I ask about how long

Do we have to bear with pain?

Holding the hands of the blind night

How long do we have to walk like this?

Vishal Bhaardwaj, director of Haider spoke about how Kashmir has changed over the years, “If you’re making a movie on Kashmir, singing songs in a boat at Dal lake doesn’t exist anymore. I wanted to make a movie on the common man who had nothing to do with either side of the conflict”, he said.

Blood, time has been murdered 

The fiery red blood keeps flowing
