Writer and Carnatic music exponent, Vidya Shah—who performed at the famous Assi ghat put things into perspective when asked about the relevance of Kabir today. “In a polarised world, Kabir’s idea of Hindu-Muslim unity seems almost prophetic. He is a symbol of communal harmony,” says Shah. Vipul Rikhi, poet and singer reveals, “Kabir became popular through his satsangs which had a radical questioning spirit yet a place where one found solace. Through his satsangs, Kabir was disrupting power structures around religion.” A power we wish more people had in today’s world.
