- If you can start by giving us a quick background of Kabir who was from the 15th Century. Where was he from? Few theories of birth and death? Saint yet married with kids? Not a conscious poet and didn’t like weaving? etc…
- What is Kabir Vani and it’s in which language? What is Sadhukkadi / Panchmel Khichdi? Why did Kabir speak 5 or more languages?
- What made him compose his dohas so differently and with such simplicity? We see this similar trait in Ameer Khusro’s 12th century also who composed radically different than his peers during his time.
- In the book Bijak of Kabir, there is a chapter called “The upside-down language of Kabir” – Are there any downside or slippery slopes to interpreting him otherwise because of these Ulatbamsi poems?
- What makes Kabir Vani more powerful and memorable? His reference to simple observations coupled with simple language and spirituality or symbolism and metaphors make it relevant and almost timeless
