All doves are simply doves but all men are not like that
(This is based on a story in Tamil posted by Vishwanath Das. I learnt a lot from it and so thanks Mr.Das )
There was big town with good population of doves,
AS well temples of various religions and groups.
A dove family was staying in the top of the tower,
Of a great and pretty tower of a Hindu temple.
One day the Hindus started repairing their temple tower,
The dove family shifted from the temple tower to the top of a masjid dome,
But unfortunately they had to shift from there to the top ,
Of the spire of a church, as they were painting the dome of Masjid.
God wanted them to soon shift from there to the top of Gurudwara,
From there to the top of a Jain Basadi and to a top of BUdhist Sthupa.
The little doves who had seen violence in all these places asked their ma,
“Why are they quarrelling mother?” and she replied as follows .
A man going to temple is a Hindu, one going to Masjid is a Muslim,
He who goes to church is Christian and omne going to Gurudwara isa Sikh,
He who goes to Basadi in a jain and he who goes to Stupa is a Budhist,
But wherever we go we are doves and the little one was confused.
It asked the mother dove “To me all of them appear to be men only,
Just like we are doves to whatsoever place we go,”
The mother dove replied with mirth in its voice,
“Men do not understand this and that is why , we are at the top and they are below.”
