In our school days, we used to enjoy the most the Kavi Sammelan-cum-Musha-e-ra (Poetic Symposium) organised locally from time to time. This used to be the combination of both Hindi and Urdu poems recited by the poets. Both Hindus and Muslims congregating in large crowds, besides all others, used to relish the recitations giving the event a total picture of communal harmony. The event so organised was called ‘Ganga-Jamuni Kavi Sammelan. This was so sweet a sight in itself. I got reminded of this when I got the news that the huge crowds at Sangam Mahakumbh consisted of a large number of Muslims taking their dips in the holy river unmindful of an awe fully chilly a weather. I also got the news that some certain selected Muslims, 30 in number with all of them being the Hajis (people privileged and bestowed with their pilgrimage to Haj), have decided to jointly take a dip in the sacred rivers, Ganga+Jamuna=Sangam, on the very next 27th of this month, the day considered to be most pious from muhurat angle, for the purposes of worshipping. I really felt so excited with the decision as such. There are number of different Dargah-e-Sharifs that monumentally came into existence in the memory of some muslim saints or martyrs (Ghazees) in the country and some of them are visited more by Hindus than Muslims. I had the privilege of visiting Dargah-e-Sharif at Ajmer twice and also the other one at Bahraich (U.P.) On all the occasions I did feel a divine thrill within myself. All this emanates from Ganga-Jamuni culture and I feel proud of being a part of it, which of course I inherited from my father who was a great poet both in Hindi and Urdu, besides English too. Such a noble culture, let us wish, continues to persist for all time to come in the interest of a solemn communal harmony.
