To Whom It May Concern

You are in lockdown now,
How does it feel?
You cannot cross your front door,
Do you remember Kashmir?

You cannot meet your allies
Or join them for a meal,
You are in total isolation,
Do you remember Kashmir?

You cannot have your lackeys
Follow at your heel,
You can’t even get a haircut,
Do you remember Kashmir?
