سیہون میں دھمال / dhamaal at Sehwan!
سیہون میں دھمال dhamaal at Sehwan!

He’s free now. Free at last. Lived a full life, inspired millions in ways big and small, symbolised the very spirit of justice and freedom. Now he’s free.

The only question for us is: where do we go from here? What kind of future do we imagine for the unborn, for our planet? As Ayo asks, “Are you still gonna live in the same self-righteous way?”

If he were Indian or Pakistani, he would be sainted in short order and next year, at his first barsi, we’d have all gone crazy dancing the dhamaal at his urs. That’s actually not a bad idea – in case any crazy sufi out there is reading this! I mean, he even chose Thursday to wink out!

Mandela is dead!

Long live Mandela!
