A snippet of the conversation with a “pir baba” of Jama Masjid, Delhi (2011). Coupled with photographs shot at Eid 2012, at Red Road, Calcutta.
He asked,”what does your heart wish for?”
I was unprepared for it.
I said, “safety, peace, stability”.
He : “Who does not wish for it?”
I sat there finding no answer, a slight smile on my face, questions in my mind, afraid to spill it out.
He said, “We all want safety, we all want peace within ourselves and stability. What do we pray for?”
I said, “We pray to the Almighty, to tell him our needs, and thank Him for what we get in our lives”.
He said, “Everyones’ peace.. for stability all around us. For us to prosper. For us to feel Him, for our true knowledge.”
As I grow, I understand what the eminent citizens of our society make the common people believe. They polish for us the better picture, which dwell in our hearts.
