I saw white rays of the sun,
Filtering through rain clouds,
Break into a rain bow,
Drawing a painting on the canvas of the sky,
Erecting an arch connecting the earth with heavens,
White light dispersing into seven colours (VIBGYOR ),
Like one Truth perceived differently by different people,
Each claiming his God to be the only true God.
” Ekam sad vipra bahuda vadanti ( Rigveda )”.
I saw God smiling pensively and say to Himself:
” Whatever has happened to Man?
I have been sending my Messengers on the earth,
From time to time, from age to age,
Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati Bharat,
Abhuthanam adharmasya tadatmanam srijamayam.
To tell him to connect to heaven while living on earth,
Like the rain bow in the sky.”
But the Messenger is often killed , be he Jesus or Gandhi,
And the Message given is lost in the Books.
What is followed is different from the Message.
The clouds gather again to eclipse the sun,
The rain bow disappears like a mirage,
The Truth remains invisible to the most,
From time to time, from age to age.
