Rumi by Farrukh Dhondy

The poems of Jalaluddin Rumi continue to be relevant almost eight centuries after they were composed, with contemporary audiences finding new meanings in them. They bring together the divine and the human, the mystical and the corporeal to create a vivid kaleidoscope of poetic images.

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”

Rumi believed passionately in the use of music, poetry and dance as a path for reaching God. His poetry is the most human expression of mystical experiences, in which readers can find their own favorite ideas and feelings—from enthusiastic flights into the heavens to matter-of-fact descriptions of daily life.

So, these books may have played an important role in Sandeep Maheshwari’s life, we can say.
