after a while i noticed a man next to me wearing a white muslim skull cap,he was like a caricature.I laughed inside and kept quite and was thinking about passing 3hours beside a fanatical Muslim,it was not pleasant one for me...his perfume smell...
he started; my name is hussain and you??i told about myself -My name is sunil, am working for a project associated with Art of living foundation..i have been given a project in patna,bihar and as i had some official meeting with national jute board in calcutta am going.
I am a follower of the Prophet..he showed a guy sitting behind our seat and said,he is my son..aeronautical engineer with british areospace for 5years...now he gave it up to follow allah.he saw the light by quran!!
he continued..i took retirement from my government job because i wanted to talk about allah..to many people...god is not a means to power or to wealth.the quran is not to be used by opportunists for the political ends;it is word of god.such political parties have nothing to do within religion,but much to do with real need of the society...
Yes! i felt true when he spoke about the political agendas which are misusing the religions in the name of vote bank..
may be it was an expected topic during the religion talk obviously..or i don't know whether he wanted to grace his religion.
i answered him.."may be a man cannot sleep,so he goes out and spends 1000rupees on a new bed.he gets it home,up the stairs and into the bed room.but when he lies on it still can't sleep.he has to take a sleeping pill.so what use is his new bed??why did he waste 1000rupee.he could have taken a sleeping pill and slept on the floor"!
he said..its not to build up a home and become a owner of a car and bungalow,property and stuffs..the purpose of life is to work for for humanity through the only way by worshiping allah!!
i dint want to answer his question about purpose of life..i believe that one who dont know about the realty of purpose of life will not talk about it and one who dont know he will speak.the pupose of life is unkown which is not permanent..one purpose comes after the other..where is the end to it??this is a ancient human mind have filled with so many things and how can a purpose becomes constant..
i smiled.... flight landed he gone his way and me on mine...i took a taxi from Airport for the meeting's place..
was thinking about what he spoke to me...many questions were gambling in my mind one after the other...
what a kind of things we are fed up till now from the society about religion...so much devotion wasn't required to illusion of salvation..quitting up of responsiblity before taking it...his son was still young!
my view about a religious mind which thinks beyond the cadre..its truth and pathless..if one can seek the discovery by himself,become free from the known and find way to unknown without any gurus,books,guided tips etc etc... tats a religious mind!!
