Religion & Politics


 Religion & Politics

Have always made

Strange bed fellows

That is how the

Story flows

 

We are holding

Deep Down Secrets”

We do not want

Outside world to know

‘Cause they only want

Society to know that

Nothing’s wrong:

“Zoroastrianism is

Pure as Driven Snow!!!

 

What an uproar

The title of the

Last of the poem created!!!!

Sent shivers down

People’s  spine

Relax, chill

I only borrowed

The title but

The idea was all mine

 

If we are not

Going to face facts

Accept  the truth

Admit there is something wrong

Then I am afraid there is

No Hope for our religion

To survive for very long.

What are community leaders doin?

Are they ever going to

Shift the grain from chaffe?

Or they going to continue

Their egoistic behaviour

Let Zoroastrianism go

To the dogs

Choicest Happiness

    NO WAY , NOT ZARATHUSTRA’S RELIGION, PARSIS MAY DIE. EVEN IF OUR FIRE TEMPLES ARE EMPTY, BUILD NEW ONES WHEN WE WILL CALL UPON AHURA MAZDA FOR HELP WITH PRAYERS NOT RECITED FOR DECADES. THE WEALTH PARSIS HAVE (FEW-newly minted) SURPASSES
    THE MUNIFICENCE of TATAS , J.J. , PETIT, WADIAS. ALL THOSE .ORG ARE JUST LIKE gymkhanas. TO THE RICH SHOW YOUR WEALTH TO AHURA MAZDA. BUILD BUILD BUILD

    Politics does play a major part in our religion no wonder we are a Vanishing Breed. Unless we have spine & uphold the principles

    Last but not the least:

    There was a milennium conference in Houston TX (200) & I submitted poem on the theme
    Looking at Issues Searching for Answers!. I submitted it & the selection committee got Riled as I wrote the truth so they decided to side step & nominated a poem which was written about Nature! And they called themselves Zoroastrians! & pray near the Holy Fire!!!!!!
    Well I intend to post the names of the selection committee on this website so you can judge for yourselves

    I have 2 things to say:

    “Every Dog has it’s day” &
    2ndly: Whatever Lola wants Lola gets (My prayers have never let me down)

    I leave you with these words:

    Wherever I go
    My Prayers are on board
    ‘Cause I definitely know
    That there is
    A God!!!
