A movie from 70? years ago?
Yet the verse sounds like it was written in 2016
What a stunning truth about the times we live in
I havent listened to a song more relevant in recent times
Here is my translationOh Lord, on your earth, why do we war over the earth
Every human wears clothes stained by human blood
The earth belongs to you and so do we
Why this war of ownership?
Why the carnage? Why the blood shed?
Oh! Why those that have the power and generosity to understand display such small mindedness
Grant peace and safety to poor mothers and respectable sisters
To those you have granted great powers, please grant them the power of compassion
Oh! Why do the heads have such arrogance? And why is the glass of vision so rusty?
Those that go down the path of war, Oh! please help them find a way home, safe (This one made me cry, the Urdu is so astoundingly good)
May the hearts that bloom never be destroyed, make way for love
Why does the world choose war, when it can choose love?
