Birth Land


Kamlesh Chauhan@ 1994


Do we have to live in the land we are born? Hinduism especially believes in Karma. Time and Destiny Takes us where we meant to be but no one can forget ones own mother. Reminiscences of ones birth land cause anguish. The flying dust of colorful festivals of our birth land, of our childhood and the youth where we spent most of our time does not go away just because Karma made us to live abroad.

The True Legacy of the birth land could never be less than joy. This magnificent and calm joy of being, serene waves comes from our motherland, it does not lets us lose our way. It creates an eagerness and hope to bring our adopted land and birth land merge with each for better future of our inheritance.

Destiny brought us to abroad to enhance our lives but that does not mean we lose touch with our own civilization. We should not lose the sense of nationalism in our adopted land America, UK and anywhere else in the world. Treachery will lead us towards darkness, evil, hatred and anger. The Feeling of devotion to your birth land is a candle which lightens our way in our adopted land. Nationalism is like a guiding star by its light we shall find a way to our own eternal spirit one has to abolish the feeling of divisiveness... Life needs a guide pole to lead us towards light of unity, sincerity of our mother land.

Oh! Man insolvent is the soul that has forgotten the love of his birth land

The World salute our late poet and writer Noble Laureate Rabinderanath Tagore for his literature “Geetanjali” among “Gora “and play “Red oleanders” and King of Dark Chambers” one of his heart rendering short story’ Kabliwallah” depicts the sentiments of universal humanity. Heart touching lyrics from the film “ Kabliwallah pictured on the veteran actor Balraj Sahni make our soul cry and urge us to be in the land we are born.

“Ae Mere Pyare watan
Ae Mere Bichade Chaman
Tujh pe Dil Qurban”

In This nuclear age where life is pacing fast, one should not forget the one’s roots. In the words of Marcus Garvey: A People without knowledge of their past, history, origin and culture are like a tree without roots” Indian civilization is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Hindu Dharma is one of the most tolerate, peace loving way of life. Hindu Dharma does not convert people. It does not kill people in the name of religion. If someone is not Hindu we never force Hindu philosophy on them. Its just not Hindu Philosophy way. That is the great beauty of Hindu Dharma. Vedas are the oldest books in the world. The world can learn a lot from Indian culture and ethics but now question arises are we keeping our ethics? To preserve the culture, one has to make an effort to sustain the cultural values, keep the unity among its people. Oldest civilization of India can be maintained by uniting together. People who are committing atrocities in the name of religion spread poison. People who embrace to the separatists are venomous to the humanity. They can be eliminated if we stand against such evil souls. Animosity is so poisonous that it spread so fast that unity of one’s motherland will be susceptible. Universal unity can be achieved by keeping togetherness in the family, in the nation which will lead to the universe.

A mother protect her child while she is carrying the child in her womb and after the birth, she still sustain, nurture her child. It behooves the same child when he or she is an older and when mother in need to fulfill the role of protector, provider for the parents.

In the execution of one patriotic responsibility debate and self criticism is not unwarranted but consensus building and common action for the common goal should be driving force. One has to eliminate negative feelings of religious hatred, but love and harmony of togetherness can be gained by living under one Banner. Will America allow California a nation incases of majority of one religion? Then why would India? Will UK divide Scotland incase there are majority of Sikhs or Hindus or Muslims? They why would India? Will Canada ever make Toronto a state in case there are majority of Sikhs, Hindus or Muslims? They why would India?

If one is not loyal to own motherland, integrity of that human being will be in question. Those who presume too much separatism, to claim divide and rule, they lost the patience and toleration of the real meaning of patriotism and loyalty. Separatism calls slavery. To survive in this modern world, one needs identity as one nation not a religion. That where human rights are making blunder and misguiding the separatist to have identity as a state and religion. Religion is for our personal moral guide. Human rights need to unite the nations.

“Wake up countrymen and women; you are called by your motherland
Awaken yourself, before it is too late; help your birth land, no matter where you go, where you live
Be loyal to your native land”
