# Two Fine Humans

Rating: 5.0

Two fine humans..i know them
from my teens
when i watched 'Gandhi' the movie
i loved this human 'gandhi'
when i read 'gitanjali' the book
i saw in tagore the human

There was not a mention about 'tagore'
in the movie gandhi
Their relationship never made history
I learned humanity in their relationship
they would have met six or seven times in life
their relationship flourished in their differences

They were actually a world apart in their opinions
they shared these differences in their letters
which i would call a treasure, , and right from
non co operation to the abolishing of foreign wear
chakra culture to asking students to refrain from school
tagore had a different opinion to give.

The respect they had for each other- adorable
the love they had for each other -beautiful
the difference of opinion between them-explorable
the differences were expressed in public -tolerable
they were indeed two matured human beings- who were able
to show their differences in public with dignity

More than the poet in tagore
it was his humanity i admire
more than the leadership of gandhi
it was his humanity which touched me
the relationship they had was truly human
their differences should be explored by every human

I admire Gandhi very much! This poem is a tribute to him, as for Tagore I don´t know much. I´ve read 3 of Gandhi´s biographies and I´ve watched the movie twice... Very good poem.
