Critical Thinking

I am agree with the idea of the poet. But there are some contradictory points in this poem?

  • Is there is the existence of inequality nowadays?
  • Is there is the existence of God?
  • Only the countryside people dominate others in name of caste, religion, etc.
  • Is there is a place like heaven, who can see heaven?
  • Only the countryside people dominate others in name of caste, religion, etc.
  • Are people think as much as the poet said about the castes in such a busy world?
  • Does it possible of changing today’s world into the ideal world (like have) within a blink of an eye?
  • Does it possible to remove inequality, injustice, and falsehood completely from the world?

Assimilation

I am impressed with this poem. The idea of establishing equality, justice, truth, peace, unity, and freedom in the world impressed me. This poet said us how to live together in the real world. The habit of dominating others in the name of castes, gender, religion, color disturbs the progress of the country and the whole world. By reading this poem, I know humanity is the best religion in the world.
