Cultural Threat

This world has no other nation
With so copious cultural diversity
Yet bound by a formidable unity
A unique and unambiguous blend
Of different customs and traditions
In this oldest surviving civilization.

Alas some dark forces, their minions
Are out to wreck the age-old traditions
Of the Bhartiya culture and religions
Peace, harmony and prosperity of nation
With their exotic and ill-conceived notion
Of the “sectoral god”, culture and religion.

 

 

(The “sectoral god” refers to a divinity claimed by any particular person, group or religion as the only true god. God is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, universal and same for the mankind and all living and non-living entities. “Bhartiya” means Indian and “Bhartiya religions” are Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism but the Indian culture endorses and welcomes all religions of the world.)

Comment Create One World Paradise of Utopia by Nature, Art and Culture!

Nature by its creations like Nightingale and Skylark birds kindles desire to fly
And sing songs of freedom everywhere in the sky to share joy with all;
Also by its creations like whale and Shark fish kindles desire to swim deep
In the vast seas and oceans of the world to explore hidden treasures!

By intensive thoughts and researches, man has invented aeroplanes and rockets
By knowledge of science and technology to explore all stars and planet to live there in future;
Before implementing in practice, Poetry and literature have by imagination created all that;
By such deeds, literature inspires interest to invent new machines to fulfil dreams!

Knowledge of all subjects philosophically prolific Poetry composes uniquely to inspire all;
Natural expressions of such ideas urge many get inspired mood in such a way
That all inventions by science and creations by Poetry have created modern world;
This world has by carelessness brought in pollution and disease to the verge of extinction of all!

What is expected of all creative and inventive developments is the creation of one world Utopia
And that's possible by living as to Nature, Art and Culture to create Utopian paradise to live in peace!
