Tell Me Why I am Hindu?

Tell me Indra, tell me Varuna
Tell me please agni
Tell me Vayu why and
who called me a Hindu?

Tell me Pushan, tell me Soma,
tell me radiant Vishnu, Brahma
Tell me dikpalaka Niruti and Yama
Kubera, Ishana, who is a Hindu?

Tell Ganapathy with sympathy
why not many have empathy?
Hey Umapathy, Lakshmipathy

Tell me why I am a Hindu?
Is it because this world is an illusion
Is this body real or soul living within
Tell me Brahman, tell me paramatman
who is and why is this one a Hindu?

Tell me Mother Kali, tell me Saraswathi
Tell me who Allah of Musalman and
Who is Son of God Jesus, A Buddha or Jina is?
Is that I am Hindu because I don't know?

In Vedas it is said
Brahmana is Knower of Brahman
But when Knower himself is Brahman
aren't all Brahmana here?

Tell me! Tell me! please tell me
Am i Not simply
Me! ?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
