Eyes, which refute-(Sukae Harae Keeae Khin Bheetar – Kirpa Drishat )
the hierarchy
the monarchy
and clergy

The real Nanak can prove fatal( inspiring - ) to us

I have just read one of your poem
Translation : Manpreet a research scholar at JNU
http://www.sikhnet.com/news/nanak-punjabi-poetica-ep1-jaswant-zafar

On reading just two words :ਟਿੱਚ ਜਾਣਦੀਆਂ

ਬਹੁਤ ਖਤਰਨਾਕ ਸਿੱਧ ਹੋ ਸਕਦੈ... It became sure that the Love and Live of NaNK needs to be researched.

Instead of eyes which refute-(it is Sukae Harae Keeae Khin Bheetar – Kirpa Drishat prevails through NaNK)

Jaswant Zafar - Jas BnNi Zahir Pir Daa (ਜਸ ਬਣਿ ਜਾਹਿਰ ਪੀਰ ਦਾ )

Ardas is Veer da

Humbly
