(Inspired from 'Lines' by Martha Collins: Ref. Pinterest. Yes! Pinterest can be amazingly inspiring at times. Gee! If only you consider this worth-while: But the One from Martha Collins is indeed inspiring).
I had a really good time visiting your home the last week. It felt like an embodiment of peace, of tolerance, of love. Though we come across you everyday in one way or the other - be it moving across a turtle-paced Streets, Visiting those gigantic Buildings having your name inscribed over it or their walls showing your half-naked portraits or your smiling face in different shades and hues. Tell me Why is that Smile? Are you smirking ? Relieved that You are not alive anymore, huh ?! To watch all that these world is going through - All this mania, this fanaticism gripping our planet currently. I know you have seen all these happen already, probably way beyond this. You have seen rivers of human blood flow, you have felt the torridity fuming from destruction of cities, you too have felt that helplessness on hearing the cries of innocent children's in the detention centers. Yet, you were lucky to be in that age, the things were in black and white - and the game was still played fairly. Come today, the world has a spectrum of Colors - You never know which ends where and where the other begins. Your Black and White were firm on their ground, and today - the blues can become green and green yellow - the only colour that was common to your time and ours is this Bloody Red. Yes, the blood of all human is still red - no matter their race, caste, ethnicity, region, religion, creed, language, values or any other criteria this world invents to divide itself into. Yet, we are all made of the same elements, same cells and bones and flesh and organs. You have always stood up for it, this equality of all - and I must admit, you were successful to a great extent in the retrospective. Still today, most people are believer of this values of which you were premier advocate, preacher and practitioner. It is probably better than during your time - when it was universal tolerance, while we are into an age of universal brotherhood. But due to the greed, lust and limited motives of a few handful of people all the good in the world seems to evaporate, what's left is the black, swart dirt. Today, we need you evermore - this humankind is set to destroy itself and the mother Earth as well, and the seed of all this is the seed of Hatred, of Greed, of lust. Come back to teach this world about Love, Contentment, Asceticism, Co-operation and Brotherhood. Come and enlighten the Visions of the Blinds and those trying to be blind by putting on blinders. For, as you said 'An Eye for an Eye, will make the whole world blind.'
