مہرباں ہو کے بلا لو مجھے چاہو جس وقت
میں گیا وقت نہیں ہوں کہ پھر آ بھی نہ سکوں

ضعف میں طعنہ اغیار کا شکوہ کیا ہے
بات کچھ سر تو نہیں ہے کہ اٹھا بھی نہ سکوں

زہر ملتا ہی نہیں مجھ کو ستم گر ورنہ
کیا قسم ہے ترے ملنے کی کہ کھا بھی نہ سکوں
مِٹّھیاں ہوکےسد لےمینوں بھانویں کیہڑےویلے
میں کوئی لنگھیا ویلانئیں جو پرت کےآنئیں سکدا

بےہمتی دا مہنا دیندے غیراں داکیہہ شکوہ
گلّ آخر گلّ اے سِر تے نئیں جِنّھوں چانئیں سکدا

مَوہرا کدھروں لبھدا نئیں بیدردا مینوں نئیں تے
ایہہ کوئی تیرےملن دی سونہہ اے جیہڑی کھا نئیں سکدا

1. Next 21 tweets on #Sikh tradition's relationship with different languages & scripts in Indic core & extended MidEast/Mongol/Tibet/E.Asian family.

What were the cultural undercurrents of the first Sikh movement towards Indicization?

What derailed this?

What about the future?
2. #Sikh Guru Angad ji pioneered the re-introduction of Indic script in Punjab. Rolled back imposition of modified-Arabic script.

#Gurmukhi is derived from Sharada script of #Kashmiri Hindus. Related to far flung Tocharian script. Is only surviving member of that script-family.
3. #Sindhis, Hindus from #NWFP & Hinglaaj (present-day #Balochistan), + today's #Kashmiri Hindus' Indic scripts have lost currency. Most now use modified-Arabic script.

These groups should consider adopting #Gurmukhi as script for their languages as they reclaim their identity.
