Tell Me Why I Am Hindu? - Poem by Ramdas Bhandarkar
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
