AGAINST IMPERIALISM

One who loves one’s nation,

never invades others’ nation.

I hate imperialism-

my nation was never imperialistic

though she was the prey of imperialists,

her answer to them was truth and non-violence

and I feel ever proud because I was born on her lap.

I believe she won’t become an imperialist in future-

she will rule this world by

science and technology, trade and commerce, arts and aesthetics,

humanism and spirituality and above all truth and non-violence.

If she touches fire and sword,

she will surely die.

Deep thought-provoking stuff.

As shown by Misbah so beautifully with the Moghul Empires, life is evolution ...movement. Nothing stays the same. This is certain! As to the ways of Brahman. Who knows? Not me.

I am in fact very proud of India though. For out of the 8 God-men I'm prepared to name, she has produced 7 and the other travelled to India in a caravan to learn from Masters there. Om Shanti!
