Aurangzeb, Why Did You Sow The Seed Of Animosity? Why Had You Been So Orthodox?

Aurangzeb,
Why did you sow
The seed of animosity,
Hatred and vengeance?
Couldn't you understand
The sentiment of the populace?

Was religious bigotry
Your blindness,
Had you been as such,
You lived in India
And understood you not
Its people and their culture,
Thought, philosophy and living?
