Therefore, I make this will as on date and ordain upon my son as under:
That, you will not allow the passion of being a Kashmiri get dissolved at any time in your life nor shall you allow your family to forget this fact. This you will do so through ethnic Kashmiri music, literature, cuisine and above all the mother tongue. You may write it in Devnagairi but the phonetics should be shudh Kashmiri. That you will not settle down permanently anywhere and shall keep the hope of return to our ancestral Chinar always aloft. That you shall never forget, nor allow your progeny to forget that we belong to the village Gairoo of Tehsil Tral. The proof to this effect I have already made available to you in the form of the state subject certificate in your possession. This has to be remembered generation after generation until the day of our return.
That, I am making this declaration because I am now in my seventies and my wish of breathing my last in my own village where my father and other ancestors did may not be fulfilled. I may be deprived of my shamshan bhoomi. In such a case, my son, listen carefully that I do not care how you will dispose of my body, you may donate all my organs and set my body on fire but remember this and remember well –
That, you will not immerse my ashes anywhere except in the Jhelum. No Ganga, Jamuna or Prayag Raj for my ashes. You will take them to Shadipora Prayag in Kashmir and immerse them there in the sangam of Vitasta and Sindh, and then conduct my 10th day shradh at Gairoo in Mata Gouri’s temple. That you will visit my janamsthan in the village and take some mitti from there to immerse it in the water while you are doing my Pind-Dhaan.
That, you will continue to make efforts to return to Kashmir and in case it does not happen in your lifetime, pass on the responsibility to your progeny and they to their progeny until the day when we will be back in the place where my Chinar has been waiting for our return.
