Only Love

Hafiz, an old Persian poet: "Every foundation you see is defective, except the foundation of love, which is faultless.
And Faiz Sahib prays:

Let us too lift our hands,
We who do not remember the customary prayer,
We who do not remember any idol or God except love.

This agony of love is not only a part of the human condition but it is a relationship which extends from one end of the world to another. Faiz Sahib’s love for humanity is free from the prejudices of race, colour or nationality.

My heart repents neither this love nor the other,
My heart is spotted with every kind of sorrow,
Except the mark of repentance.
