This is one of the commonest pics we see in India.
I don know if other Indians are unlucky enough to have never come across this in their real life, but well… we, in kerala see it daily in the private buses, poster shops, painting shops, and many many shops….
It is a symbol of what India stands for, it shows our Unity in Diversity. It shows how we all wud, inshaAllah, remain together in spite of all our differences. It shows how we respect each other and love each other for what we are.
It shows that Indian golden thread which the rest of the world took a very long time to realize. It shows the beauty of the gorgeous lady dressed in saffron, white and green….
This picture shows India – the home to one of the greatest and oldest civilizations in the world…… one of the Holiest Valleys. And the best thing bout this pic is that it’s not been taken at a shop or in a bus or at a govt.building… this pic was taken at my friend, Amuda’s home. She has it hung on the wall of her living room. This is the first thing you’d see wen you enter her house.
This pic in her house is the proof of what we call “Hindustaniyat”……..
And Allah willing this peace will never die, however hard you may try!
