Light and Shadow!

Just one of those days, when you're intrigued by shadow and light! ;)

People in the shadows: Maitreyi and me.

Aaj Jaane ki Zidd Na Karo...

An all time favourite ghazal- Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
can't get the damn tune out of my head! ;)
Written by poet and lyricist Fayyaz Hashmi, and sung by many singers over the years...sharing some of my favourite versions... Go get intoxicated! xD

Aaj jaane ki zidd na karo
Yu hi pehlu mein bethey raho
Haaye mar jaayenge
Hum to lutt jaayenge
Aisi baatein kiya na karo
Aaj jaane ki zidd na karo..

Tum hi socho zara
kyu na rokein tumhe  
jaan jaati hai jab uth ke jaatey ho tum
tum ko apni qasam jaan-e-jaan
baat itni meri maan lo  
Aaj jaane ki zidd na karo..

Waqt ki qaed mein zindagi hai magar
chand ghadiyaan yahi hain jo aazaad hain
inko kho kar kahin jaan-e-jaan
umr bhar na tarastey raho
Aaj jaane ki zidd na karo 

Kitna masoom rangeen hai yeh sama
husn aur ishq ki aaj mein-raj hai
kal ki kis ko khabar jaan-e-jaan
rok lo aaj ki raat ko  
Aaj jaane ki zidd na karo...

sung by Farida Khanum

sung by Asha Bhosle

There is something mysterious and beautiful about Eclipses that always makes me feel awe-inspired! =)

Eclipse-by Pink Floyd.
writer-Roger Waters

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy
Beg borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

Watch Out!

Language! sigh. every time i think about language, the thought of 'use' of language saddens me and often arouses in me a feeling of disgust! Why is it that the language of the present day so called modern society so rough and i shall take the liberty of saying 'informal'?! why has language and words as a way of communication become so loose and lost it's style? words oh words!

Well, if you genuinely care about WORDS, check out this video and definitely do Think about it!
P.S.: AND watch out for 'apostrophe' ! ;) xD

'Break a vase, and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.'
  -Derek Walcott

Also having keen interest in symmetry, asymmetry, asymmetrical symmetry,etc... i bumped upon this video!
enjoy! =)
