Main Bhi Sochun Tu Bhi Soch

Reading the column by Dr. Chidanandamurthy this morning in Vijaya Karnataka i was happy and also irritated. Happy because he was not elected as the president for this years Kannada Sahitya Sammelan and irritated for the thoughts he has voiced in his weekly column. He is of the opinion that India should follow the footsteps of Israel. Meaning India should decalre war on Pakistan. THe other messages he wants to send across are, do not trust the Muslims in INdia, keep them and the Communists under control and what not! But his main agenda is to inject the thought of need for war among the readers. It is irritating.

I was asking all my friends to read the article via SMS and as i was sending the message to my senior friend Siddangowda Patil, who currently is the State Secretary of CPI, i rememberd a poem he wrote a decade ago. The poem reads like this:

Tere Mere Beech Mein Pyaar Hai Toh
Hindustan Rahega Pakistan Rahega
Tere Mere Beech Mein
Mushraff Aur Vajpeeye Ka Bomb Rahega
Toh Hindustan Bhi Nahi Pakistan Bhi Nahi
Sirf Ek Kabrastaan Rahega

Following this poem i rememberd another poem which my another friend Neeraj Agarwal had recited to me a feew weeks ago. I dont remember the name of the poem, which reads:

Jab Tere Mere Sheeshe Ke Ghar
Main Bhi Sochun Tu Bhi Soch
Phir Kyun Hai Haath Main Paththar?
Main Bhi Sochun Tu Bhi Soch

Jab Tumko Pata Tha Lehre Aati Jaati Hai
Phir Kyun Likha Ret Per Naam
Main Bhi Sochun Tu Bhi Soch.

Jab Raam Aur Raheem Hai Tera Mera
Phir Kyun Mandir Masjid Banayaa?
Main Bhi Sochu Tu Bhi Soch.

Last evening i was chatting with my friend Aditi Surendran who asked me to wish everyone not Happy New Year but Peaceful New Year. Makes a lot of sense!!!
