Hamari  تہذيب  (tehzeeb)
ho, ya संस्कृति (sanskriti), we have always
respected each other. However, that element of the culture is depleting and
causing distrust and discomfort with each other.  Can we let this happen? I hope not. 

Poetry is one of the pillars of our  सभ्यता , تمدن and it is in our interest to leave a better world
for our نسل, पुश्त or posterity.  Indeed, we can revive that tradition. 

Let us consciously work towards creating संसक्त  समाज,  معاشرہ  چسپندہ or  cohesive
societies where no one has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of the
other.  The mere idea of thinking and writing
such thoughts in our poetry is seeding the future; indeed, this is a small
step, and hope it will become a giant leap for the Urdu/Hindi speaking
populations of the Subcontinent, برِصغیر, महाद्वीप in building cohesive

This program will be a model
program to be placed on the world wide web, and seek publication in major Urdu/
Hindi media. With your  सहायता, تعاون and help, we can invite the giants of poetry in
Hindi and Urdu to write the poems, if they are in Dallas, they can recite it as

Pluralism in one sentence is about respecting the
otherness of others and accepting the God given uniqueness of each one of us.
It involves building cohesive societies and creating an environment where no
human has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of the other.

words that best describe Pluralism in Hindi are: Anekāntavāda (Devanagari: अनेकान्तवाद) and Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (Sanskrit: वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम) and in Urdu it is تَکثیریت (we are still looking for the right word).  

I have been researching,
writing and speaking on Pluralism for the last twenty years with articles in
Dallas Morning news (150), fortnightly in Huffington Post (50), Washington  Post (10)  and several other periodicals around the glove
including live workshops (28)  and radio
programs (520 hours)  on the wisdom and
essence of all the beautiful religions.  And
one of the three books called “Standing up for others” will be released at the
Mensa Conference in Fort worth on July 4th.

can choose a variety of topics inclusive of religion, humor, culture, food, language
and day to day living.  How do we get along
respectfully with each other!
The poetry will be sensitive and respectful of every religion, race, ethnicity,
gender, color and nationality. It’s a conscious step in advancing our culture
of respecting each other’s uniqueness.  The completed poetry must be in by June 15th
to make it to the book.

hope to place a book in the hands of every major poet, कवि  and شاعِر.  Indeed,
this will be a small step, and hope it will become a giant leap for Urdu/ Hindi speaking populations in learning to respect
and accept each other’s uniqueness.

We seek funding for this project and I hope you
can fund it generously.  You can make the
check to America Together Foundation (foundation for Pluralism is its dba) or
