Secularism And Communalism - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Is secularism opposite of
I do not know also
What do you mean by
Economic reforms.
I know only agitation.
Agitation for what
That I can not say.
And I can not say
So many things
Such as how and why
Gandhiji is termed as
Mahatma and bapuji.
Who am I
I can not say
I also can not say
Why giving is not giving me
Pleasure and you want to receive.
I am also not able to
Distinguish inner and outer
Space here in this body.
I can say from hearsay
So many things
But you say hearsay has got
No evidentiary values.
I do not know what is what
And when I utter anything
You termed me in some words
That I am unadble to understand.

    Secularism propagates tolerance, not the understanding, where as communalism involves all aspects of life, not only religion as in secularism. when the capitalism fooled the communalism in many parts of the world, whenever there is crisis, even the capitalists administer principles of communalism...thought provoking poem! thank you for sharing (Report) Reply
