Are capital letters really needed? What do you think? : Black, Pink Ink on paper - Excerpt from Strata by Terry Pratchett.

Are capital letters really needed, I wonder? In Hindi and punjabi and all other Indian languages that I know of, there is no concept of capital or small letters - but then again there are other differences between the indian scripts and the latin ones. So, tried this piece without any capital letters for beginning the sentences or for proper nouns. Is it just habit then, that this looks strange or do capitals actually help in case of English, I still wonder :).

Beautiful Poem by Rumi: Pink Ink , Blue Ink+White Gouache on paper

"What you see lies in the mirror,

though it’s your own, and not the mirror’s,

The breath that’s blown within the flute,

Who owns it, the flute or you?”
