Una Mitra Di Yaad Piyaari by Shaheed Jaimal Singh Padda

In Lakhan ka Padda village in Punjab, poet Jaimal Singh Padda was shot dead on March 17, 1988. During the peak of terrorism, Padda would take out processions against Khalistan movement and write against terrorists in his journal. For his departed comrades, he had written a poem: Mitra di yaad nayo pulni (The memory of friends won’t fade away). Here, you listen to this poem in his own voice. Anand Patwardhan was documenting their efforts which resulted in his film ‘Una Mitra Di Yaad Mein’ (1990). This clip is from the same film.
