Here is an excerpt from the classic epic Bharat-Bharti written by Rashtra Kavi Maithili Sharan Gupt (1886-1964). The topic is very contemporary as beef eating is being discussed extensively these days. The poem is very moving and in a way argues against killing of defense-less animals by all powerful humans just for eating. Interestingly Gupt Ji directly addresses Muslim populations and advises Hindus and Muslims to live peacefully in the interest of the country. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
