Your ‘I’ ... Entry by Kasturi Lal, XIMB

You can call me an atheist
Not a non-believer but an egoist
I have my own religion
I worship human volition
The mind and its ambitions
And their hard-earned realizations

You ask me to show humility
Bow down before the Almighty
It is my quest for excellence
You’ve mistaken for impudence
The worst breach of piety
Is succumbing to mediocrity

You call God by different names
And then play those filthy games
Games of ‘My God is the best’
‘My faith is superior to the rest’
This is what I intensely detest
Wake up now and introspect

You sing in God’s praise everyday
For success and fame you pray
And the minute calamity strikes
You blame the Almighty in a trice
Time now to accept this reality
You are your own responsibility

You see, towards any faith
I don’t intend any disrespect
But ever wondered where is your ‘I’
Think, it is worth giving a try
The day you try and find it out
You would have done your God proud


  1. Hey guys..please change the stanza after 'responsiblity'.. that is how I sent it..5 stanzas.

  2. A very nice message- Its time to take responsibility for your own life.

  3. Man has Proud and the loud , may be the perception clouds,
    You may tell it conventional, away from reality,rather emotional,
    But Your 'I' is not high than the Almighty's sky,
    The Nature who nurture,a pot of life that has an aperture,
    There is not absolute human,not regular like moon or sun,
    So better to jump high,without pass by,the blessings of god, the cause of all pie..
