A Beautiful Prayer written by Dr Allamma Iqbal.

The Prayer is sung by Siza Roy.

लब1 पे आती है दुआ2 बनके तमन्ना3 मेरी , ज़िन्दगी शमअ की सूरत हो ख़ुदाया मेरी 4

मेरे दम , दूर दुनिया का अँधेरा हो जाये , हर जगह मेरे चमकने से उजाला हो जाये

हो मेरे दम से यूँ ही मेरे वतन की ज़ीनत , जिस तरह फूल से होती है चमन की ज़ीनत5

ज़िन्दगी हो मेरी परवाने की सूरत या रब , इल्म6 की शमअ से हो मुझको मोहब्बत या रब

हो मेरा काम ग़रीबों की हिमायत करना ,दर्द-मंदों से ज़इफ़ों7 से मोहब्बत करना

मेरे अल्लाह बुराई से बचाना मुझको , नेक जो राह हो उस राह पे चलाना मुझको

Meanings: 1-Lips ;2-Prayer; 3-Wish ; 4-My Life should be like a Lamp ; 5-Prestige ; 6-Knowledge/Erudition ; 7- Old men/ इक़बाल

Its my favourite song. Hope you guys will also like it...

Track title: Sapno se bhare Naina..

Movie: Luck by Chance

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Music Director: Shanker, Ehsaan and Loy

Singer: Shanker Mahadevan

This is a reflective song which talks about somebody’s unrealistic aspirations and may sound higher on sadness. But the music uplifts the mood and makes it interesting. The best way to enjoy the song is to hear it in pin drop silence. Of course..so is any song …:P

0 Comments Music of The Night
Posted by Mr. Navodaya on October 25, 2010 at 10:39 AM

This is one of the numbers from one of the greatest musical "The Phantom of the Opera". It has won many awards since 1986. The show is still playing at Her Majesty's, celebrating its 24th anniversary in October 2010, and celebrated its 10,000th performance at the matinee on 23rd October, 2010; both Andrew Lloyd Webber and the original Phantom, Michael Crawford, were in attendance.

The plot is in the Paris Opéra in 1911. The central plot revolves around a beautiful opera singer, Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius and a magician, born with a terrifyingly deformed face, who escaped from captivity in a traveling freak show and disappeared.

The Phantom falls in love with Christine and wants his compositions(Music of the Night) to be sung by her. She loves another person named Raoul. One day, as the Phantom composes music at his organ, ("I Remember...") Christine lifts his mask and beholds his face. The Phantom expresses his longing to look normal, and to be loved by Christine. Once Christine tells about the phantom to Raoul and the Phantom does not like it and comes to take revenge on Raoul and he tells Christine he will free Raoul if she agrees to stay with him forever; if she refuses, Raoul will die. ("Final Lair") Christine, stating the distortion is not with the Phantom's face, but his soul, kisses him. Being this is the first time the Phantom has been shown any compassion and love, he sets them both free.


Composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Opera: The Phantom of The Opera
Production: 1986 London

2 Comments The Chain of Love
Posted by Mr. Navodaya on October 1, 2010 at 9:24 PM

The Chain of Love" centralizes on a series of characters who, by helping each other in some way, form a "chain of love" amongst them.

In the first verse, a male character named Joe is driving, when he notices a lady whose Mercedes-Benz is stopped with a flat tire. He then stops and changes the tire for her, and after she asks how much she should pay him, he replies that she can repay by continuing "the chain of love":

"You don't owe me a thing, I've been there too, And someone once helped me out just the way I'm helping you. If you really wanna pay me back, here's what you do. Don't let the chain of love end with you."

In the second verse, the lady has headed down the road to a small café. While eating there, she notices that the waitress is pregnant and exhausted. After paying the waitress with a $100 bill, she (the lady in the Mercedes) leaves behind a note on the napkin without accepting her change. Written on the napkin is the same request stated by Joe in the first chorus — an invitation to continue the chain of love.

The waitress, by the third verse, has returned to her home. Joining her husband in bed, she begins to think of the money and the note left by the lady, before turning to her husband and whispering to him, "Everything's gonna be alright / I love you, Joe."

Singer: Clay Walker
