Two Hindus, a Muslim and Amitabh Bachan

The reasons I uploaded the Bhajan in the last post:

The poem is by Meera Bai, a Hindu Queen

The singer is Ustad Munawar Ali Khan, a Muslim  

It is about Lord Krishna who was born to a Hindu OBC family. He is worshipped by Hindus, some of whom happen to be those who consider themselves the upper castes.

Who said the world is not multi-coloured?

The song was made popular as some Hindi film writer got inspired by its first line. An Indian actor known for his height also contributed to its popularity. 

The beauty of the original poem was thus lost.
