Visit to a Shrine

I reached Ajmer and visited Hazrat

Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishti

Shrine, as it is a religious institution,

which has for centuries been

attracting pilgrims.

If there is one truth to be learned from

his life, it is that there is no predicting

the future.

When the sun emerged, I came out to

a place where flowers were blooming

in a garden. I heard a cock utter in

his characteristic loud cry like


The beautiful sound made my enthusiastic

mind to express the inner happiness

and a cool crisp air was blowing from

the desert as if all are revealing

the deeper truth.

In the meantime, peacocks were calling

out in their cordial tune and it was a

dream to visit Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin

Hasan Chishti’s Shrine, which touched my

heart and deepened my faith to such an

extent that words fall short for feelings.
