Simple yet difficult….


The garden was almost full of people, a social gathering was going on. All eyes were full of zeal, faces were happy. Some boorish boys maligned a silent girl, there was nothing esoteric about the situation. It happens all the time, because we are a free country, and freedom of expression allows it all.


She tried to obviate, and she succeeded. Her courage went defunct. Some members from her community heard about the situation, and they were informed that the  boys who did this were from a different community. Now all were ready to turn that little flame into conflagration, not for the girl, but to take revenge from the community, there can’t be a better opportunity.


They went and brutalized a girl from the other community, now we are even they said. The girl which was brutalized still wondering what was her fault, and her community thought this is not even, we just maligned their girl, but they brutalized ours. So they went ahead and burned some of their houses.


And that goes on and on, and it still goes on. They all have become so odious, they followed their religion to get close to god, and they now are far away from god, who is nothing but love.


It was god they desired

They made efforts but got tired,

They followed their religion,

Without knowing the reason,

They traversed the path with a defunct mind,

With some abrasive laws to bind,

A war started and god eloped,

They kept walking and never stopped,

Such simple thing it was to comprehend,

God will easily take your hand,

Just kill the ego and walk through the road,

Love will enter and you will be god..

    A very profound post shreyans. Just a small spark is enough for an issue to take the shape of communal violence. God understands the language of love. I don’t know why these fanatics fail to see that.

    Shreyans, I like what you’ve captured here, especially the following, “They all have become so odious, they followed their religion to get close to god, and they now are far away from god, who is nothing but love.” Beautifully written. Please enjoy your day. ~ Mia
