A tribute to JNU students.



Put out the Lamp,

Put out the Lamp,

Leave me alone

In my world of darkness,

Leave me alone in this darkness.


Do not light up the lights,

Do not light up the lights,

It can brighten the minds of others,

It can enlighten the conscious of mass,

It can show the way of dignity,

So, do not light up the light,

So, put out the Lamp.


Please close the door,

Please close the door,

It’s the time of changing seasons,

Please close the door.

Don’t allow fresh airs to come,

It can cause the shivering of my stability,

It can uproot the myth of my superiority,

I am afraid of the humiliation of my supremacy,

Please close the door,

Don’t allow fresh air to spread.


Oh Girl! Oh Nature! Oh poor soul!

How can you become so brave?

How can your voice be so powerful?

How can your words be so appealing?

How can you be so audacious...

To show the truth in the mirror?

How can you become so mad...

To spread madness in the fire?


Put out the Lamp,

Put out the Lamp,

We are coming in the dark..

We are coming with the masks..

We are coming with the swords

To stop your voice of truth,

To show the power of royal majesty.


Oh, God! Oh Almighty forgive them, as

Little do they know, that

Every drop of blood never goes in vain,

Every drop of blood gives divine bliss of unity,

Every drop of blood count as multiplier of determinations.


Put out the lamps,

Do not light up the lights,

Please close the door,

Don’t allow fresh air to spread.
