May peace reign

India awaits judgement
on an issue that has ripped the harmony
and polarised communities into ghettos.
Though the judgement ostensibly is
About a land dispute,
The sentiments that are attached
Are worrisome.
The abstract issue of religiosity
May raise its head and claim lives
to justify history.
Let us believe in Man first,
Then God.

Please visit any Indian newspaper site or click here to understand what am referring to.

  1. A very disturbing event... and yes, this is the most awaited judgment of the year...

    Like the final lines...

  2. It will be like re opening old wounds that might have healed.

    It was a politically motivated campaign, which baffled us.

  3. G' Day From Australia, I agree with the line "Let us believe in Man first". I believe that "Man is a product of evolution not god".

  4. to chase the link to get further inderstanding..nice 55....

  9. My good frind LouCeel put this up as a comment on one of my posts. I can't say it any better.

    I ain't afraid of your Yaweh,
    I ain't afraid of your Jesu,
    I ain't afraid of your Allah,
    I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your God.

    "I Ain't Afraid", by the Klezmatics.
