Mukhtalif – A Wish for Unity

(mukhtalif: different in Urdu)

I wish far away in the sea of this space would reside another world.
I wish their looks would be different from the looks of the people of this world.
I wish their languages would be different.
I wish their religions would be different.
I wish the gods they worship and the rituals they perform would be different.
I wish the way they see things would be different.

I wish they would land their spaceship on the earth one day.
I wish when they would come out, they would see the people of this world.
They would look at them and say, “We all look so different from you, but you all look alike!”

I wish the people of this world would believe them.

*Inspired by a recitation by Javed Akhtar at a concert I saw on television the other day.*

The necessity for improved possibilities inside field regarding video game portrayal echoes increasing passions towards severe instances involving human behaviour which usually present the greatest parts of all of our nature.
