Yeh Hai Meri Kahani

This song is from movie "Zinda"  by director Sanjay Gupta . This song is composed and sung by Strings and lyrics by Anwar Maqsood. A very very stylish and powerful song with intense composition. 
The lyrics of Anwar Maqsood are definitely blank verse, and if you have seen the movie it fits very well in the situational relevance of the film, but it becomes really interesting because of the way the popular band strings who have dressed up non-rhyming lines and wrapped them in a nice way with the great use of instruments particularly drums and electric guitar. The opening music gives you an "haunting" feeling. 
The lines are poetic and vibrant! Strings’ vocals are a high point, and the non-rhyming, uptempo song grows upon you with every passing minute. The poetry in the spoken verse is exceptional:

Bajai pyaar ki shabnam
Meri Gulistan me
Baraste rahte hai
Har simt Maut ke saye
Syahiyo se ulajh padti hai meri aankhe
Koi nahi, koi bhi nahi
Jo batlaye mai kitni der
Ujalo ki rah dekhunga
koi nahi, hai koi bhi nahi
Na paas, na door
Ek yaar hai dil ki dhadkan
Apni chahat ka jo elaan kiye jati hai
Zindagi hai jo jiye jaati hai
Khoon ke ghoont piye jati hai
Khwaab kaanto se siye jati hai

I think the way it was narrated, makes it excellent. Simply awesome!!


This is one of those songs, which will take to a different world.. I mean it, you can actually make a picture of things that happened to you in past while listening to this song and you would try to relate those events to this song, it happens with me atleast and i know a few friends of mine with whom it happens.... Anyways, Before i go off-track let me give you guys the chords for this beautiful song..
 Complete lyrics:

Ye hai meri kahani
Khamosh zindagani
Sannata kah raha hai
Kyo zulm sah raha hai
Ek dastaan purani
Tanhai ki zubani
Har zakhm khil raha hai
Kuchh mujhse kah raha hai

Chubhte kaante yaado ke
Daaman se chunta hu
Girti deewaro ke
Aanchal me zinda hu
Bas ye meri kahani
Benisha nishani
Ek dard bah raha hai
Mujhse kuchh kah raha hai
Chubhte kaante yaado ke
Daaman se chunta hu
Girti deewaro ke
Aanchal me zinda hu

Bajai pyaar ki shabnam
Meri Gulistan me
Baraste rahte hai
Har simt Maut ke saye
Syahiyo se ulajh padti hai meri aankhe
Koi nahi, koi bhi nahi
Jo batlaye mai kitni der
Ujalo ki rah dekhunga
koi nahi, hai koi bhi nahi
Na paas, na door
Ek yaar hai dil ki dhadkan
Apni chahat ka jo elaan kiye jati hai
Zindagi hai jo jiye jaati hai
Khoon ke ghoont piye jati hai
Khwaab kaanto se siye jati hai

Ab na koi paas hai
Phir bhi ehsaas hai
Syahiyo me uljhi padi
Jeene ki ek aas hai

Yaado ka jungle ye dil
Kaanto se jal-thal ye dil
Chubhte kaante yaado ke
Daaman se chunta hu
Girti deewaro ke
Aanchal me zinda hu

The Power Of Maula !



The power of Maula (allah, god, ishwar whatever you call him) is that ability and strength whereby He can bring to pass whatsoever He pleases, whatsoever His infinite wisdom may direct, and whatsoever the infinite purity of His will may resolve. . . . As holiness is the beauty of all God’s attributes, so power is that which gives life and action to all the perfections of the Divine nature. How vain would be the eternal counsels, if power did not step in to execute them. Without power His mercy would be but feeble pity, His promises an empty sound, His threatenings a mere scarecrow. God’s power is like Himself: infinite, eternal, incomprehensible; it can neither be checked, restrained, nor frustrated by the creature


  


For all those of you, who, like me, are  incompetent   to beseech for themselves and end up losing all forms of accent while standing in front of God.

a wonderful song "Arziyan"  administers the most beautiful words of entreaty...and what do I tell to god.....speechless





Like Ramakrishna Paramahansa had said, There is just One God and all the religions are the different paths leading to Him...There is just One Pond in the village..all the people travel various paths and come to that same pond for their needs...

From Rabindranath Tagore to Kaaji Nazrul Islam to various other poets involved with other forms of music..like Sufi and Baool... all speak about that One Supreme Power...



Arziyan saari main;

Chehre pe likhke laya hun
Tumse kya maangu main,
Tum khud hi samajhlo...
Maula maula maula mere maula
Maula maula maula mere maula [4]

Daraare daraare hai maathe pe maula
Marammat mukaddar ki kardo maula..mere maula
Tere dar pe jjhuka hun, mita hun, bana hun, [2]
Marammat mukaddar ki kar do maula[2]

Jo bhi tere dar aya; Jjhukne jo sar aya,
Mastiyan piye sab ko jjhumta nazar aya.
Jo bhi tere dar aya; Jjhukne jo sar aya,
Mastiyan piye sab ko jjhumta nazar aya.
Pyas leke aya tha; dariya wo bhar laya,
Noor ki baarish me bheegta sa tar aya
Noor ki baarish me...ooo...bheegta sa tar aya

Maula maula maula mere maula...[4]
Daraare daraare hai....Marammat mukaddar ki kardo maula.
Jo bhi tere dar aya; Jjhukne jo sar aya,
Mastiyan piye sab ko jjhumta nazar aya.
Jo bhi tere dar aya; Jjhukne jo sar aya,
Mastiyan piye sab ko jjhumta nazar aya.

Hoo..Ek khushboo aati thi[2]
Main bhatakta jaata tha...
Reshmi si maya thi,
Aur main tak ta jata tha.
Jab teri gali aya;
Sach tabhi nazar aya
Jab teri gali aya;
Sach tabhi nazar aya
Mujjhme hi wo khushboo thi...jisse tu ne mil waya.


Maula maula maula mere maula[4]
Daraare daraare hai..

Toot ke bikharna mujjhko zaroor aata hai [2]
Varna ibaadat wala shahoor aata hai
Sajde mein rehne do, ab kaheen-na jaoonga
Ab jo tumne tthukraya to sanwar na paonga...

Maula maula maula mere maula
Daraare daraare hai...

Sar uttha ke maine to kitni khwahishe ki thi
Kitne khwab dekhe the...kitni koshishe ki thi
Jab tu robaroo aya[2], nazrein na mila paya
Sar jjhuka ke ek pal mein[2]..maine kya nahi paya...

Maula maula maula mere maula


Mora piya ghar aya[12]
Maula maula maula mere maula...

Open Source Software- The Wave of the Future

-> This is the article which I submitted in one of the inter-college technical fest in my bachelors.  

There was a crowd of people which once thought, and still do, that computer software ought to be a free service.. They came up with a solution to this by designing something called open source software, it is software the can be designed and upgraded by just about anyone with the knowhow, thus creating a much higher quality product. Open source software is normally free, but sometimes there is a small fee attached to it or donations are suggested. It is very versatile in the fact that updates to the program occur often, which is constantly improving upon the previous version
. If you wanted to do so, you could be the one to edit and upgrade the program. As you could imagine, you would need to have extensive knowledge in open source software editing.


There are a multitude of reasons to use open source software
as opposed to a paid program. There is an application for just about anything you could need. Each has the ability to be adjusted to suit personal needs and wants. And, those are just a few from an extensive list.

Imaging and printing aren't left off that list. Along with specialty printer drivers, there have also been a multitude of imaging and picture editing applications available, and file translation programs to create readable files from those that are coded for web and other purposes.

One of the more popular sets of open source tools is a from the GNU Project. Perhaps the most popular of the tools is GIMP, which stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The tools in this package are almost limitless, could be used to replace almost every program on the ordinary person's computer, and best of all- they are FREE!


One of the main reasons that open source software is updated frequently is because other very expensive options tend to have issues with drivers and produce a lot of errors.

As always, with something so extraordinary there has to be a draw back. One of these downsides is that fact the open source software can be more difficult to install and implement. Additionally, it is often incompatible with other programs or operating systems

. One example is, GNU's word processing site can be accompanied by a Word Viewer program (also free), but this program only helps someone to see documentation delivered as .doc or .docx documents. This is would only be read-only which means that it is not possible to make additional edits .

So, if you are about to undertake a new hobby in photo imaging, or are considering the latest printer, or perhaps you are a longtime operator of both of them, open source software could be something to consider. Just make sure that you do your research when diving into the world of open source software to make sure that it is the right solution for you.
