“Faith is love taking the form of aspiration.”
Today I feel great that am going to discuss about my favs..i.e. about poetry, music and Gulzar :) !
Poetry: the best words in the best order
Yes, I was so surprised to see this CD called ‘Heer – by Abida & presentation by Gulzar’ – Thank You Friend for bringing this from the library as….usually its those historic & amazing movies which has made me eager to quench my thirst of curiosity and anxiousness about everything that did happen in history.
“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” ~ Albert Einstein
I never knew that I could get these cd’s as well that too ghazals, sufi kalam wow….am a great fan of Abida Parveen….her voice has that intenseness which takes one to the depth of it and leaves them there lost…that’s exactly how I feel…and I often listen to her & that’s the reason her melodious voice is there in my Radio Blog. Try it out and am sure you wont regret it :). She is considered as the queen of Sufi mystical singing, but she is best with sufiana kalaam, be it in hindi, urdu, Punjabi, sindhi or saraiki.
“Music is the harmonious voice of creation; an echo of the invisible world.” ~ Giuseppe Mazzini
The songs in this Heer - album are written by Waris Shah – a great poet who is believed to be inspired by the pain of his own unfulfilled love.
I always felt sad about this aspect…that only a person can bring out the true essence by suffering? Why?....why can’t a person be as good as being in love & bringing those emotions of being in love, whether parting with love & then getting re-united….all these can bring the essence but still the one who suffers only know the true pain of it …I guess :), that’s the irony part of it….which often made me to think about all those great talented & expressive people.
“Suffering is the true cement of love” ~ Paul Sabatier
This album also describes the romance tragedy of Heer – Ranjha (the famous lovers known for there love & sacrifice from Punjab). It also depicts the true culture of Punjab and the fragrance of its authenticity.
“You must submit to supreme suffering in order to discover the completion of joy” ~ John Calvin
Gulzar…the word itself says …. That’s how his voice is…one can feel the purity, clarity & the depth. I just love his voice….his writing…his poetry…his direction hehe yeah you can say am madly in love with…;)
"Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash". ~Leonard Cohen
A man who has written in Hindi, Urdu & Bengali – though not being his primary language still…that is something one call it getting inspired…
“Words are the voice of the heart”
Bengali culture has always inspired me a lot…and to a lot extent the credit goes to Rabindranath Tagore…
“No culture can live, if it attempts to be exclusive.” ~ MK Gandhi
......who has often tried to bring the essence of the Bengali culture in his writings and the movies that have been made on those stories written by him.
“Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.” ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
All I want to say is …its an amazing journey that I went through and felt like sharing it…the words are not yet over….the thoughts are just plundering and my hands want to keep on typing….I just get crazy about all this…I wish…one day I can only do these things in life and not bother about any thing else :) is that a dream plan…hehe should be isn’t it..? We all have dreams and we all try to aspire those …and I guess that’s what makes life keep on going…to reach to a goal…a goal created by ourselves ….:)
“An aspiration is a joy for ever, a possession as solid as a landed estate” ~ Robert Louis
I love this day…:) and loved to share it here :)
