Balochistan has a long tradition of maintaining its identity, dignity
and pride. The Baloch always take pride in two things: being Baloch in
the true sense of the word and showing bravery against the enemy.

Even the lullabies of Balochistan convey these feelings: *“I sing to my
dear son this lullaby so that he sleeps. I pray that my son becomes a
young man, has good friends and wears all the six Balochi arms on his
dress.”* Another lullaby that comes from the heart of a mother, says that
*“when there is a battle in the deserts, my son will be standing under
shade of the swords.”*
Yet in another lullaby, which is known as the
‘Lullaby of Mir Qambar, a mother is made to say:

📌O, my son, the light of my eyes, if you embrace death and become a martyr
for national honour and prestige, I will not weep or cry but would come to
your grave with pomp and show, and will sing the song of celebration and
happiness, and for each son who is killed for the honour of my land, I will
produce another son.*
