Pathro Aaj Meray Sar Pe Barastay Kyon Ho
Main Ne Tum Ko Bhi Kabhi Apna Khuda Rakha Hai?
Jab Se Tune Mujhe Deewana Bana Rakha Hai
Sung Har Shakhs Ne Hathon Mein Utha Rakha Hai

O Stones! Why are you drizzling on my head today?
Did I ever ever treated you as my God?
Since you have made me mad in your love
Every person has picked a stone to throw at me.

These verses from Hakeem Nasir's Ghazal were immortalized by Abida Parveen voice. Download http://www.thesufi.com/sufimusic/abida-parveen/jab-se-tune.html

Sufi Short Story
Pir asked Abu Sa‘id whether he wanted to talk to God.
“Of course I want to.”
“Then whenever you are by yourself, recite, ‘Without Thee, O Beloved, I cannot rest; Thy goodness toward me I cannot reckon. Though every hair on my body becomes a tongue, a thousandth part of the thanks due to Thee I cannot tell.”

Being a Marxist, Faiz was common man's poet. He had a unique ability to write verses which started from romanticism but moving towards a darker tone as he spoke of tyranny and oppression he witnessed (examples being Mujh Se Pehli Si Muhabbat Meri Mehboob Na Mang and Raqeeb Se).

Shoaib Hashmi, renowned artist and also Faiz sahib's son in law) mentioned in a interview that he once requested Faiz to write in their mother tongue, Punjabi.

Faiz agreed and write a subsection within his poetry book Sham Shehr-e-Yaaraan , which include below poem that is considered his most admired Punjabi poem.

ربّا سچیا تؤ تے آکھیا سی
جا وے بندیا جگ دا شاہ اے تؤ

ساڈیاں نعمتان تیریاں دولتان ہیں
...ساڈا نائب تے عالیجاہ ہے تو

Gham-e-Ashiqi Se Pehle Mujhe Kon Jantaa Tha?
Tere Zaat [SAW] Ne Bana Di Meri Zindagi Fasaana!
Before Sorrow Of Love Of Prophet, Who in World Knew Me?
You Elevated Being Has Made My Life A Story [That Everyone Knows]

Is Karam Ka Karon Shukar Kaise Adaa is a beautiful Naat that Nusrat Sahib used to perform in Faisalabad in reverence of Prophet SAW. These words also truly depict Life of Nusrat Sahib, as Allah raised this Ashiq-e-Rasool from nobody to a celebrity whose voice is heard and loved from Hollywood to Japan [where people saw NFAK as reincarnation of Buddha]. The Naatiya Qawwali also includes the famous beautiful verses below.


Jitna Diya Sarkar Ne Mujh Ko, Utnee Mere Okaat Nahin
Yeh Sab Tumhara Karam, Warna Mujh Mein Koi Baat Nahin.

Bal Bal Jau Main Tore Rang Rajwa
Apni Si Rang Li Mose Naina Milayike

I give my life to you, Oh my cloth-dyer
You've dyed me in yourself, by just a glance.

Amir Khusrow love poem for his Peer-o-Murshid Hazrat Nizamudin Awliah remains as fresh as the day it was written hundreds of years ago. It has been sung by uncountable artists and has inspired generations towards music.

Below is a candid interview with Late Om Puri, as toured England for shooting of East is East Movie.

It is 10 Am and I have been waiting for at least an hour for his phone call.

SA: Hello, is this Om, hello Mr. Puri?

OP: Hello. May I speak to Saniya Ansari? Hello?

SA: Yes, speaking. Om, Mr. Puri, I’m so glad you called. I also left a message at your hotel.

OP: You did? I don’t
know how to check messages. Sorry, I got stuck at Star-bucks.

SA: Mr. Puri, the first question I would like to ask is how your family influenced your work as an actor? Do you come from an artistic background?



OP: No. My father served in the British army. I grew up in Patiala where I did my BA in Political Science. After, I connected with a couple that created plays with social relevance. That got my interest in acting and I went to Delhi’s drama school and after that to Puna institute for 2 years. My father never objected. That was my family’s influence.

SA: Indian Art Films made you most popular with specific audiences, directors and actors. There are some bitter actors who believe that the art scene was a rip-off because of its limited market, lack of stardom and short life-span. How did you feel as an actor about the distinction between art and commercial film?
