ae watan pyaray watan ae watan pyaray watan

pak watan pak watan ae meray pyaray watan

ae watan pak watan pak watan pak watan

ae meray pyaray watan ae watan pyaray watan

tujh say meri yeh tamannaoon ki duniya pur noor

tujh say hay meri tamannaoon ki duniya pur noor

azm mera kabhi meray iraday hain ghayoor

meri hasti main ana hay meri masti main shaoor

jan fiza mera tukhayyal hay to sheeren hay sukhan

ae watan pyarey watan ae watan pyarey watan

pak watan pak watan we meray pyaray watan

ae watan pyaray watan

to dil afroz baharon ka tar o taza chaman

to dil afroz baharon ka tar o taza chaman

to mahektay huay phoolon ka suhana gulshan

to dawarez ana dil ka bahari maskan

rang o aahnag say maamor teray koh o daman

ae watan pyarey watan ae watan pyarey watan

pak watan pak watan we meray pyaray watan

ae watan pyaray watan

meri dil teri muhabbat ka hay jan baksh diyar

meri dil teri muhabbat ka hay jan baksh diyar

mera seena teri hurmat ka hay sangeen hasar

meray mahboob watan tujh pay agar jaan ho nisar

main yeh samjhoon ga thikanay laga sarmaya e tan

ae watan pyarey watan ae watan pyarey watan

pak watan pak watan we meray pyaray watan

ae watan pyaray watan

ae watan pyaray watan

Pakistan Paindabad !

Romantique

Sunday – 11 Jamadi us Sani 1424 – 19 Sravana 1925 – 10 August 2003    

Hmmm. Just wrote a LONG post that got erased. I AM SUCH A MORON!

Well I have been meeting all these wonderful people on MIRC for the past two nights. Old friends. New People who are amazingly cool.

This is all good. Keeps my belief in ‘Gay Supremacy’ alive.

Well I do not know why but I am feeling amazingly romantic tonight. VERY romantic. So I am wallowing in the feeling while I can. After this I will put on some of Mehdi Hasan’s Ghazals. And lose myself to the music and fate. ;).

Oh I have put it on already. Well tata all of you. I will spare you my words. Have fun and enjoy.

*mehdi hasan*

phool hi phool khil uthay meray paymanay main

aap kya aaye bahar aa gaee mae khanay main

Anyone from Pakistan with a taste for classical. ASK me for the file I will DCC it to you on MIRC or do whatever. You HAVE to hear it.

Tera Pakistan Hay

Sunday – 11 Jamadi us Sani 1424 – 19 Sravana 1925 – 10 August 2003   

todays patriotic song. one of the five that i had in american on the 14th of august 2001. i didnt know i had this one as well. the other had been downloaded on the night before the 14th. i was very happy to find this one as we used to sing it a lot as children and it hit me with a lot of nostalgia for the land that i was missing dearly after a 6 week stay in america.

jalal goes amock with hysterical patriotic fervour.

Saagar Kinare

Thursday – 08 Jamadi us Sani 1424 – 16 Sravana 1925 – 07 August 2003   

a song that i love. that also describes what i feel at times.

saagar kinare dil yeh pukare

saagar kinare dil yeh pukare

to jo naheen to mera koi naheen hay

jaage nazaare jaagi hawaain

jab pyar jaaga jaagi fizaain

pal bhar ko dil ki duniya soei naheen hay

lehron pay naachain kirnon ki pariya

mein khooi jaisay saagar main nadiya

to hi akeli to khooi naheen hay

saagar kinare dil yeh pukare

saagar kinare dil yeh pukare

to jo naheen to mera koi naheen hay

i love this song so much

Musings

Sunday – 04 Jamadi us Sani 1424 – 12 Sravana 1925 – 03 August 2003  

the eternal question. when will i find ‘the one’. the right answer. shut up man and lemme sleep.

at least that is what happened to me when i pestered my cousin too much. he knows i am gay. he thinks it is sick. he has tried an awful amount of times to str8en me out. but never works. well now i just talk to him about guys and my problems being gay. i am sure he thinks about other things and just nods. with the above paragraph i seem to be like a 35 year old woman whose marriage is going nowhere. but i am not. mind you all. i am not a 35 year old woman whose relationship is not going anywhere.

i am just a guy. sitting besides a window. nice cloudy windy weather outside. all alone at home. everyone else is asleep. i am listening to nice music. getting more and more romantic. feeling more and more lonely. DAMNIT ! now i will have a lousy day. musing all day. desiring to go see the sunset on the sea. desiring to sit with someone for tea at a restauraunt. desiring to talk to someone about stuff i like. desiring to discuss politics, music, literature, art, religion, history or life with someone i love.

desiring too much. getting too little. god i hate it when i am in a good mood. it always leads to a more mellow and down mood. right now i am upbeat. but wait till tonight.

finally some music that you all out there in the west can listen to and relate to as well(west = us, canada, europe, australia, new zealand). this is the time when i talk about what moves me and you guys will also know what i am talking about.

elvis ROX!. ‘unchained melody’ ‘are you lonesome tonight’ ‘always on my mind’ ‘help me make it throught the night’ ‘fame and fortune’ ‘its now or never’ ‘love me tender’ ‘suspicious minds’ ‘wear my ring’ ‘oh danny boy’. i love listening to elvis. i love listening to him when i am down and out. and also when i am upbeat and happy.

presley’s music has depth and beauty. it is melodious when you want it to be. it has the marvellous beats when you want them.

then there is eric clapton. he is one of the very few men capable of giving me an orgasm. i come alive in his music. it is as if you shine sunlight on newly sprouting plants. they come alive and spring to life. that is what clapton’s music does to me. ‘alberta’ ‘layla’ ‘old love'(excellent. always gives an orgasm) ‘bell bottom blues’ ‘wonderful tonight’ ‘lady in red’. eric claptons guitaring is one of the greatest blessings to mankind.

it is a saying here in our part of the world that ‘mausiqi rooh ki ghiza hay’ ‘music is the food of the soul’ i believe in this saying. it is so right. it is so right.
