Samvad celebrates Irom Sharmila

When life comes to its end
You, please transport
 My lifeless body
Place it on the soil of Father Koubru

To reduce my dead body
 To cinders amidst the flames
Chopping it with axe and spade
Fills my mind with revulsion

The outer cover is sure to dry out
Let it rot under the ground
Let it be of some use to future generations
Let it transform into ore in the mine

I'll spread the fragrance of peace
From Kanglei, my birthplace 
In the ages to come
It will spread all over the world
