Are you a writer?

I noticed a pair of raised eyebrows!

Left or right wing,

Do you have an ism?

I was bombarded with questions!

Do you keep roza?

And why are you

Breaking your fast at iftar?


Haven’t you seen me in temples

In a serpentine queue to get the blessings?

I was also there in the church

For Christmas to light a candle

And to attend a midnight mass.


Didn’t you notice my soul flying high

During the meditation on Buddha Purnima?

I was in lime light on a Parsi

Friend’s Navroz party

Enjoying the delicacies.


Yes, I’m a spiritual person

Not to mess with religiousness.

Praying for the humanity

Begging for peace to the almighty.

Not to be bound in a narrow boundary,

But, striving to reach above all.


The curious eyes were blinking in disbelief,

I was happy inside me, to be questioned often,

So the opportunist in me could spread the message-

Of humanity and peace.
