What is Orchestra?

What is orchestra? 
Symphony, he replied. 
Mingling of rhythms. 
'It may be so, 
But I find orchestrated rhythms somewhere else' 
'Where?' 
'In India'. 
India a land of co-existence. 
We create synthesis 
Out of conflict 
Of thesis and antithesis. 
No view is final for us. 
There is always the scope for further argument. 
Religious tolerance is our motto. 
If there is Vaishanava cult, 
There are Shaiva and Shakta ideologies.* 
So, India a perfect example 
Of orchestra and symphony, 
Of dialectics and tolerance. 

*Vaishanava, Shaiva and Shakta are the cults of Hinduism.

    Good morning Dr. I reviewed your profile. How do you ever find time to share with us? Are you working on a book about Stephen Gill, the photographer/writer? I love your work..BG?
