mazhab / religion


main samajh nahi pata
ki kisi ka bhala karne ke liye
hansne ke lie
pyaar failane ke liye
sab insaanon ko apne barabar samajhne ke liye
mujhe kisi mazhab ki jaroorat hi kya hai?


i can not understand
that to do some good
to laugh
to spread love
to recognize each human being as my equivalent
why do i need a religion at all?

human being said...

it's not for those who
CAN
laugh
love
and do good
it's for those who
CAN'T...

today her poem 'third world' just killed me!

Adi - you have taken words right out of my thoughts. One of my friends loaned me this indian movie called "Shaurya" - have you seen it? Very powerful movie.

I love the header picture - may you two find love and happiness forever.

phoebe: yes, i know phoebe, that is an amazing pic we've there. and no, i didn't understand the last comment. please explain.

dwai: kamine, its been ages i heard from u. where the hell u've been. let me go and check what do u exactly mean by this new muse of yours. and yes, i'm very sure that pic brings a lot of memories back :)

pink: thanks for being here, with me even if i don't come visiting often :) yes, i've seen the movie and no doubt, it is a brilliant portrayal of the religious identity and personal identity clashes we all are going through in India.
