When a child is born, he has no conscious knowledge about himself or about the environment around him. He is an alien, an innocent soul. His body is made up of the same elements as that of Mother Nature. They have the same two hands, two legs; a heart to love and not to hate and even the colour of blood is the same. It is really hard to digest that people forget themselves as in the direct gift of the Creator and fight for land, for power and for little things that hardly matter in life. We all pray to Him to give us all these things. We forget the purpose of our life, for what we have been created.
Man cannot create a leaf or a fly, though he is free to tamper with God’s creation to the extent he wills. He cannot prevent himself from getting hungry and thirsty, he does not decide what time or country he will be born, he is not free to choose his parents nor physical structure, nor does he know when and where he will die. When so many things cannot be decided by him, he has no right to decide which religion is the best. There is no point in fighting with each other or in instilling fear in other people.
There is a lot of hue and cry in this world- people are starving, they are craving for love, they are molested for some or the other reason. It is high time we rise from the petty issues of religion, fighting over ‘my religion is better than others’. We need to understand that we have to rise above the boundaries of caste, colour, creed, nationality, the conventional religion. Though we are living in the 21st century with all the technical innovations on one side yet we are still fighting over religion. Every human being must be treated with respect.
We Indians have always been boasting of our ‘unity in diversity.’ But do we practise it or it has just turned into a phrase.? Each of us must ask ourselves this question.
People need to understand that when they will die, they will be reduced to something that will be de composed. Neither the power nor the money will remain with him. Humanity should be the biggest religion for each and everyone.
A society can be served in this way thus making earth a better place to live in. We have to remember that we are all children of nature and we cannot go on fighting with each other. We need to decide what we are going to give to our next generation- hatred or love- the choice is solely ours.
