Like Veena- -Like Nation


*Veena is a lovely musical instrument
It looks beautiful and magnificent
It has a number of strings.
.
If the pitch of each string is different
The emanating music is unpleasant.

If all the strings are in the same pitch
There is no hitch
And good Music to the ear it fetches.


Like Veena is our beautiful Nation
It is great with approbation
It has a number of religions.

If the pitch of each religion is different
The emanating incoherence is unpleasant.

If all the religions are in the same pitch
There is no hitch
And Peace to the country it fetches.


***************************** ****************************************

L et there be harmony amongst religions of India for Peace to reign!

    A fabulous sound if it's well-tuned though. Brilliant metaphor - religions should sound against each other in a harmonizing manner. (Report) Reply

    Fear... if you do not believe in my religion you are wrong and if you do not convert to my religion I am going
    to kill you. Only out of fear that your religion may be the right religion. (Report) Reply
