Joggi thee maan murliyoon wajjayaan – by Swami Anand Krishna

Joggi thee maan murliyoon wajjayaan,
جوڳي ٿي مان مُرليون وڄايان
Ggoliyaan pahinjay Punhal kkhy.
ڳوليان پنهنجي پنهل کي
Saami thee maan murliyoon wajjayaan,
سامي ٿي مان مُرليون وڄايان
Ggoliyaan pahinjay Punhal kkhy.
ڳوليان پنهنجي پنهل کي
Punhal aahay hin des mein,
پنهل آهي هن ديس ۾
Ggoliyaan payi pardes mein.
ڳوليان پئي پرديس ۾
Sukal wann saawa thiyaa,
سڪل وڻ ساوا ٿيا
Aayaa baadal wo Allah.
آيا بادل وو الله
by Swami Anand Krishna
سوامي آنند ڪرشنا

Indo-Canadian Singer Lends Vocals to Sultans of String’s Sindhi Folk Song: Watch

Indo-Canadian songstress Shweta Subram recently collaborated with Juno Award-winning instrumental group Sultans of String and sitarist Anwar Khurshid on a traditional Sindhi folk song, titled “Parchan Shaal Panhwar,” according to a press release.

A fusion of East meets West, “Parchan Shaal Panhwar” is a Sindhi metaphor that translates to “A Personal Struggle for Freedom.” Subram’s soulful voice wonderfully complements the melodic sounds of the Sultans of String, who are known for combining elements of Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms and French manouche gypsy jazz. The music video was released May 3.

Chris McKhool, bandleader and violinist of the Toronto-based Sultans of String, contacted Subram after he came across her successful collaboration with the The Piano Guys on their hit “Don’t You Worry Child (Khushnuma).” This upbeat fusion has now crossed over 15 million views online.

“We were very excited when Shweta agreed to lend her vocals to the album. We were looking for a voice that is rustic yet unique, and Shwetas’ vocal performance in this song is absolutely stunning!” exclaimed McKhool in a press release.

A poem by Hafiz, the Sufi Poet:

 

Light will someday split you open
Even if your life is now a cage.

Little by little, You will turn into stars.
Little by little, You will turn into
The Whole sweet amorous universe.

Love will surely burst you wide open
Into an unfettered, booming new galaxy.

You will become so free
In a wonderful, secret
And pure love that flows
From a conscious, one-pointed, Infinite light.

Even then, my dear, the Beloved will have fulfilled
Just a fraction, Just a fraction!!!
Of a promise He wrote upon your heart.

For a Divine seed, the crown of Destiny,
Is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to!!!

O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.

When your soul begins
To ever bloom and laugh
And spin in Eternal Ecstasy –

O little by little, You will turn into God…

Welcome To Karachi review: Fun-filled moments make it a watchable film

By Rohit Vats, Hindustan Times, New Delhi

Film: Welcome To Karachi
Cast: Arshad Warsi, Jackky Bhagnani, Lauren Gottlieb
Director: Ashish R Mohan
Rating: 2.5/5

Ashish R Mohan, the director of Welcome To Karachi, was Rohit Shetty’s assistant on many hit films before wielding the megaphone for 2012 film Khiladi 786. No wonder then that Shetty’s stamp is unmistakable in many scenes of Welcome To Karachi, especially comic ones. But can borrowing his teacher’s style save Ashish R Mohan’s film? Let’s find out.

Shammi Thakur (Arshad Warsi) is an ex-Navy captain who just can’t keep a tab on his overflowing emotions and equally wild tongue. As a result, he is dismissed from the Navy and is forced to spend most of his time with a good-for-nothing Gujarati boy Kedar Patel (Jackky Bhagnani). Kedar’s father Mitesh Patel (Dalip Tahil) is a boisterous Jamnagar-based businessman who wants his dim-witted son to take over. Kedar keeps failing and then one day he is supposed to take care of a semi-cruise wedding. As expected, this wedding turns out to be the turning point of Kedar’s life because it makes him land in Karachi, Pakistan.
