GLOBAL RHYTHM

 

'One day we could be dancing

Dancing to the global beat;

Everybody dancing together

Everybody up on their feet...'

' Yes, we're going to build the common good. Ride on. Shelley lives, Byron lives, Keats lives, Marley lives.

The revolution is not dead. The race is not for the swift, but for those who can endure'.

THE BALLAD OF

AKBAR AND AURANGZEB

'The future must be with Muslims like Akbar,

In our world of the coming century;

And let's hope that Aurangzebi Muslims

Can find a way to love humanity...'

'What a fantastic subject and way to think about Islam today'

-Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, commentator and founder member of British Muslims for Secular Democracy
