सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में हैं

Click Play to listen to the song
सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में हैं
हैं लिए हथियार दुश्मन ताक में बैठा उधर
और हम तैयार हैं सीना लिए अपना इधर
खून से खेलेंगे होली गर वतन मुश्किल में हैं
सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में हैं
हाथ, iजन में हो जूनून, कटते नहीं तलवार से
सर जो उठ जातें हैं वह झूकते नहीं ललकार से
और भडकेगा जो शोला-सा हमारे दिल में हैं
सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में हैं
हम तो घर से निकले ही थे बांधकर सर पे कफन
jaaM hqaolaI pr लिए लो baZ, चले हैं ये कदम
जिंदगी तो अपनी मेहमान, मौत की महफिल में हैं
सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में हैं
दिल में तूफानों की टोली और नसों में इन्किलाब
होश दुश्मन के उडा देंगे हमें रोको ना Aaja
दूर रह पायें जो हम से दम कहां मंझिल में हैं
सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में हैं

jaya ihnd !! !!! Happy Independence Day !!!

Breaking News: Osama Bin Laden is in Solan !!!!!

Film Review: Tere Bin Laden.  

The story of the film actually not about Osama Bin Laden as much as about the silliness of over-reacting America. The story revolves around a Pakistani journalist Ali (Ali Zafar) who works for “Danka TV” channel of Pakistan. He wants to make it big to get hell out of Karachi and move to US. He encounters with  Noora (Pradhumna Singh) a chicken farmer in rural Pakistan, who lookalike Osama Bin Laden. Ali makes a risky plan to shoot a fake Osama Video which will be his golden ticket to America.
The story takes a turn when the problem of Ali and his associates increases on release
of the Osama video. Rest of the story is about how they manage to solve this problem.

Tere Bin Laden is an earnest and fantastic story. It is an refreshing set of smartly written jokes. Although it is not a continuous laugh buster but these smartly placed jokes make the story quite entertaining.  Despite of a few periods of repetition  and jokelessness the movie is simply good. 

The star of the film is Ali Zafar. His pleasant looks and promising acting skills make the movie alive. The way Pradhumna Singh played his role is ultimate. All other actors did a good job in the movie.

The well known film critic Taran Adarsh summarizes his review by saying, “On the whole, Tere Bin Laden is a fun-ride that makes you smile constantly and even laugh outrageously in those two hours. A thorough entertainer, this film has all it takes to not only make its viewers laugh in the aisles, but also its investors laugh all the way to the bank.”

If you have not yet watched the movie, I recommend you to spent a good, uncomplicated  and relaxing hour and a half watching this movie.

It was a beautiful rainy morning today when Queen's Baton arrived Solan on 6th of July 2010 at 8AM. The baton was welcomed by the first shower of monsoon. It seemed that God itself wanted to welcome the arrival of Baton in Solan.  Instead of heavy rainfall, the students of various schools were standing both sides of the Mall Road with colorful umbrellas and National Flag in their hands.

Osho Meditation Camp at Centa Rosa, Solan

A 'Osho Dhyan Sadhna Shivir' is being organized by Osho Friends, Solan at Hotel Centa Rosa, Solan w.e.f. 21-5-10 to 23-5-10. Though I was reading Osho Literature for past 11 years it is for the first time I attended Osho Dhyan Shivir. The Meditation techiques developed by Osho are as deep, vast and practical as his writings. On Day first I practiced ' Sakriya Dhyan or Dynamic Meditation, Vipassana, Braham Nad & Kundilini Jagran. One thing I learnt today is that Dhyan is not a subject matter of discussion and one can not learn Dhyan by reading. The only way to learn Dhyan is to do it. Osho said about Dhyan that Dhyan is not a very serious thing and if you take it seriously you cant' do it. Just be playful with it. He quoted Guru Gorakh Nath "Hasiba, Kheliba, Dhariba Dhyanam". Doing Meditation, listening to Osho after meditation on tape and talking to the Osho friends , together, it was really a great experience for me.It is around 10.30 PM and I am preparing a draft of this post. The whole day meditation made my body little bit tired but my mind is completely relaxed. I have to getup early iin the morning at 4 AM to reach the meditation hall which is around 10 KM from my home. Now i am going to sleep.
