The beauties of co-existence

We exist because others exist

And yet, everyday we pretend  others don’t exist.

How long?


Each one of us has flamboyant ambitions,

An insatiable desire for perfection.

Creative, smart, realistic and flexible,

We want to bring our plans to fruition

And the voice within us that says

‘Move on,’ cannot be stilled.


It is believed that if we want

To achieve something in life,

The ensemble of the entire cosmos

Conspires with us to make of this daunting task

A mission successful and plausible.

It is the glorious path of full consciousness

That sages have worked on for years

That helps to open the sleeping eye.

It is the spirit of togetherness

Which under the yoke of ignorance

Looked like a bull without horns.


Einstein’s theory of relativity

Just turned hundred years old.

Faraday, Marie Curie, Michelin, Darwin,

To mention but a few,  have left light for us

And gone.

Like winged messengers of love, they brought

Light and love to the world

To dissipate darkness.


Let us learn to co-exist.

Let our growth be stable, slow and continuous

And perseverance, the fountain of all our actions.

Let us sit together and look at the sun-lit lake,

The lush landscapes, the meandering rivers

And while we string the jasmines together,

Our children will grow together

As men and women

Of a perfect and united civilization.

    Co-existence is a very old conception of Indian mythology that so they raised the slogan of universal family. It’s wonderful and brilliant.
