I live by your names.
Show me the true path
Give me that rectitude
If Allah resides in mosques
Ram in idols
And Jesus in churches,
Then whose is the rest of the land?
Where else do I find you?
All men are alike
All have the same blood, the same flesh, the same heart and brain.
I an not querulous,
Why cant we see
that all brothers and sisters are your myriad flowers?
One-as one in thy everlasting love.
The Kazi fasts for Ramadan
The Brahmin once a fornight
And the Padre in Lent for 40 days
eleven months to himself
and then looks for rewards in a month of fasts.
Why bow head in Mosques?
why bathe in the Ganga?
why geneflect before the Sacrament?
You hamate, crook at heart,
You dubious, pretend to pray,
You frigid, pretend to love.
Why go all the way to Hajj to the Kaaba, ?
You go to the Varanasi and Vaishno Devi
You go to Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
These men and women
we all of them
are nothing but your forms.
I am your child.
You are my FORTITUDE MY PIR----(ALLAH)
you are my HAUTIER MY DEV-----(RAM)
you are my VERACITY MY GOD----(JESUS)
YOU ARE NONE BUT ONE THE SAME

Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren
You do it unto me
Love they neighbour as thy self.------A quote from the Holy Bible
