वजूद / Survival

लड़ रहे हैं लोग
मंदिर और मस्जिद के नाम पर
लेकिन उनको बनाने वाले
लड़ रहे हैं अपने वजूद के लिए…


People are fighting
in the name of temple and mosque
but those who built them,
are fighting for their own survival…

–Kaushal Kishore




  1. Excellent lines and very well said. It’s pathetic to find the citizens of a great nation fighting with each other over the greatness of their respective religions. Sab kehte hai hum Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Isai hai but no one wants to identify himself as an Indian first. Bahut dukh hota hai ye dekhkar ki desh bhakti sirf 15 August or 26 January ko hi dikhti hai .

    1. Ab to deshbhakti un do dino ko bhi nahi dikhti hai. Many schools declare holidays on those days. In fact, our crooked leaders have failed us. They need a good crop of votes by hook or by crook. Thank you, Aparna ji for sharing your heartfelt thoughts that I truly appreciate.

  2. Thank you, Kaushal, for waking people up with your well-versed thought, and starting the conversation. Working people always have greater problems surviving than ideologists of different religions.

  3. I am all for pluralism and peace, KK. ❤ I was raised Christian, married to a Jew, and taught in a Muslim school for four years. The core ethical beliefs are much the same in all religions. One they all claim is to "Treat others as you wish to be treated." Wish they would all follow the Golden Rule! Thank you for highlighting this timely issue. 🙂

    1. You are absolutely right. I truly appreciate you. “Treat others as you wish to be treated”. This is the mantra that can resolve all sorts of conflicts. Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing this Golden Rule 💖

    1. Yes, we should understand the plight of the poor, as they are part and parcel of India. Their role is also important. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
