South Asian thoughts ....

Look at the weavers,

delicate is their love,

they join every day,

and learn not to part.- Shah Latif (Sufi poet)

______

"...those who wallow in the past also learn how to hate and never move ahead or progress."

"Religion is only meant to make you a good human being it is not meant to turn you into a fanatic" - Sunil Dutt (Film star, politician, social activist) 

_____

 

" Koi Bole Ram Ram koi Khudaee,

Koi sevay Gosainyan koi Allah "

Some call him Ram, some Khuda

Some say Gosain, some Allah.

(Guru Arjun Dev - Sri Guru Granth Sahib)
