The poem talks about Shalimar Bagh and Dal Lake in Kashmir and underlines that the country is for every citizen.
 
It mentions that the situation in the Kashmir Valley is turning normal after the abrogation of Article 370.
 


“Humara watan khilte hue Shalimar bagh jaise, humara watan Dal lake mein khilte hue kamal jaisa, nau jawanon ke garam khoon jaisa, mera watan tera watan, humara watan, duniya ka sabse pyara watan,” she said. (UNI)
