Hindus fighting Muslims, and brother slaying brother,

          made peace to save his life, loved more than any other.

               Dear Bapu, your greatest weapons, thereof ...

     the power, nonviolence, the strength ... LOVE.

Thank you so very much, Andrea, and please do not feel anything negative - I knew I was taking a chance as it was not humorous, so that it placed at ALL was a blessing I was grateful for. Thank you, my friend! :-) <3
