Dear Praveen Raj Gullepalli another extremely beautiful and thoughtful composition. Amazing indeed. Many commentators showed interest about this paradise on earth and the ensuing conflict. You have marvellously described in your poem. Thanks for your fabulous contribution.

Spectacular indeed, the land and the tree! Dear Anees Zaidi, here are my thoughts, inspired by your words! About those that would take, out of selfishness, pride and prejudiced hate, that which is neither's property...the paradise on Earth that Kashmir is... Take not that which belongs to another; even if by own decree; Find your own space under the sun, and let them all just be! Share what you need not, and let the others be fed; let not a single species on our planet, go extinct or go dead. This Earth belongs to no man, but the wind, the creatures and the tree; A Human is just a citizen, meant to be footloose and fancy free! Stake no claim over territory, Let the world be without any measurable boundary; The only things that divide us, should be the hill, the dale, the glacier or the sea.
