JEHOVAH, KRISHNA or ALLAH?

Strange are the ways of God!

While the streets were still rife with communal riots, Jehovah decided to bless two of his sons to disperse in either religious directions - Hinduism and Islam, to prove the religious lay wrong. Masters of their craft, they have leveraged their art to espouse a different vision of the world around them. In short, they have become cultural icons in their own right and self-styled ambassadors of world peace.

In 1970, an American rock-n-roll enthusiast Jeffrey Kiegel travelled to India and became the disciple of Maharaj Neem Karoli Baba. This everlasting relationship transformed him into KRISHNA DAS (KD for short), destined to "rock" the KIRTAN world;

Elsewhere in 1976, a British super star of folk rock Steven Demetre Georgiou rose like a phoenix from his Near Death Experience (NDE) to become YUSUF ISLAM (formerly Cat Stevens), the beloved voice of the ISLAMIC world;

Two handsome men - one born May 31, 1947 and the other born July 21, 1948, both underwent a churning of spirit only to emerge as messengers of love, amity and unity through soulful music. And I am their unabashed fan!
