Ram, Krishna and the Mahabharata in Urdu poetry

You may not know it but Muslim poets writing in Urdu about Hindu epics have had a great impact on popular culture. There exists a vast body of shayari on Lord Ram, the Mahabarata was brought alive on the screen through the writing of Dr Rahi Masoom Raza, there are Ram Leelas performed in Urdu and even qawwali often refers to Hindu deities and epics. This is just one embodiment of India’s syncretic culture, a vast confluence of faith and traditions. This episode was more personal and emotional than usual, a somewhat late reaction to the inauguration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. Do listen and share the latest episode of All Indians Matter.
