You know about baul, the troubadours of Bengal. Don’t you?
When Hindus and Muslims were hating each other over the differences of their religious beliefs, Lalon sang songs questioning their beliefs!
Lalon was an illiterate poor man living in a Bengal village. He did not go to schools. But he was a self taught secular philosopher. The man from the 18th century probably could not imagine that his country one day would be divided on the basis of religion, and in the 21st century people would continue hating each other for having a different faith or a different cast.
Good that he does not see the atrocities that we see everyday. Hatred and bloodshed in the name of religion everyday.
