East And West - Poem by venkata lakshmi narasimharao

The sun rises in the east
And sets in the west
Lord Krishna flourished in the east
And Jesus Christ blossomed in the west

Sanskrit is the purest language
English is the most popular in the present age
Valmiki was a great Indian sage
Thoreau’s each word is an adage

East is famous for spirituality
West is known for material prosperity
Spirituality without prosperity may be ideal
Prosperity with spirituality is feasible

Colonization may be an evil
Even the west was suffered by the devil
I want to be a bridge between East and west
Because I can not say which is best
