The American replied, ‘oh, it’s a great country with solid ancient history and immensely rich with resources.’
I further interrogated her, ‘How did you find Indians?’
In her seriousness, a foreigner told me the stark fact about my country. My head hung in shame. It was a very thought provoking experience; we are scattered into religions, castes, sub castes, all the way forgetting that we are Indians first!
Get a life, smile broadly, sing loudly,
Paint your rooms in bold colors,
Search every rabbit hole for a magical white bunny,
Wear a purple coat with a red hat - dance lightly with life.
As non-serious, a playfulness,
All the burden on your heart disappears.
All the fear of death, of life,
Of love - everything disappears.”
