A Little Box
PoetryAnd didn’t I grant you six identical faces, each perfectly plain as the other and a sturdy mouth to clasp shut?
PoetryA body we can read and understand. If only I could put you under a microscope and transform you into a symbol to unite our disciplines: the communication phage.
Sad stories you are old enough to hear
Non-fictionThis year, a ‘news anchor’ raised a question about why Muslims participate in the garba when they don’t believe in idol worship. It’s a bit like saying people should not be allowed to put up a Christmas tree if they haven’t been baptised or taken the sacrament. Thousands of non-Catholics attend the feast of Mount Mary in Bandra. People of all faiths attend the Urs of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer and the Sufi saint Waris Ali Shah at Dewa Sharif. Hindu devotees going to the Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala also visit the Vavar mosque en route. That news anchor’s question poisons the breath of our country.
