I have never seen Caesar,
I have never seen Cleopatra,
Yet I know the bewitching beauty,
And her enticement on Anthony.
I have never visited moon
And have never seen an astronaut,
Yet I feel the magical surroundings
And what an ecstasy it must be.
I have never seen a ghost
And have never seen an old castle,
Yet I know the Hamletian dilemma
And the concern of Ophelia’s parents.
I have never seen Lord Shiva
And have never seen the river Ganga
Descending from heaven,
But I have seen the Ganga in all its forms.
I have never seen Mahatma Gandhi
And never seen the poet Zaverchand Meghani
But read his poem “Drink last cup of venom”
And felt the agony Gandhi carried on his way to London.
