      This is an attempt to reproduce some Indian based literature to show
      their influence on Sufism. There are many rumors circulating around
      claiming Sufism being the brainchild of the Indian mystics and that is
      not true. In this humble first attempt you can see the influence of
      the fantastic presentational arts of India into both Farsi & Arabic
      literature. In comparing this work with that of Attar's Speech of the
      Birds you can see the anthropomorphic Indian influence.

      In Ref [2] you can see the Pine imagery of the Sufism and in Ref [3]
      you can see the proverbial influence into Sufism.

      All and all Sufism enjoyed the expansion into Indian poetic arts, to
      save itself from the stagnation of the Safavy empire, but I am yet to
      see the Indian ideological influence into Sufism.
