Loveship, Hateship, Kristen Wiigship

Nice one

Uptown Moxie

Last week I had the great pleasure of seeing one of my most looked-up-to individuals at a movie screening/talk at the 92nd Street Y. As a part of the Reel Pieces series, my friend and I were able to preview the drama Loveship, Hateship (based off of Alice Munro’s short story “Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage”) and sit in on a discussion that Columbia Film Professor Annette Insdorf held with the film’s director, Liza Johnson and the star of the movie, Kristen Wiig.

Realtalk, I’m not much of a film expert (although I also finally watched Dallas Buyer’s Club and Nebraska this weekend — A+ to both!); this event had me at “Kristen Wiig will be there.” Poor blessed Annette Insdorf tried her best to ask Ms. Johnson questions that wouldn’t bore the audience to sleep and stay on topic of the film, but 90% of the discussion and questions…

Accountability ….

Some words on accountability from a dear friend :

Each of us must be accountable
for wrongs committed–there
are no secret deeds.
Each is revealed in the Light.
 
Do not think that the other’s
wrong is greater, therefore yours
does not count; each are a
stain upon the soul.
 
Make restitution to those
whom you have harmed.
Ask them to forgive you.
If they do not, you have done your part.
No error is too small to ignore,
or too grave to forgive.
 
You need not be with those
who continue to harm you,
but leave with your heart
free of bitterness; pray for them
that they may choose the Light.
 
We are each accountable
for thought and deed.
Delay not, right your wrongs;
live in peace and harmony,
walking the path of Light and Love.

Duur Garchay Hain Ghairon Say
Apnay Pyaron Say
Rishtaydaaroun Say
Bachpan kay Doston Say
Aur Yaaroun Say
 
Is Doori Mai Watan Ki Hifazat
Ka waada Hai Inn Paharoun Say
In Junglon Say
Bayabanon Say
Dasht o Sehraoun Say
In Fizaaoun Say
 
Ghar Say Doori Mai Bhi Aey Pak Watan
La Basaya Hai Hamain 
Inn Paharon Nay
Paharoun Ki Goud Mai 
Gaaon Mai !!
Iss Gaaon Kay Jis Mai Hum Bastay Hain
Iss Gaaon Ko Samungli Kehtay Hain
 
 
Yeh Paharoun Say
Kohsaaron Say Hai Dhakka Hua
Phoolon Say
Phalon / Poudoun Say Hai Lada Hua
Chaar Soo Hai Darakhtoun Say Saja Hua
 
Pyaar o Muhabat Say Yahan Log Rehtay Hain
Ghar Say Zyaada Issay Ghar 
Samajhtey Hain
 
 
Hai Yeh Chota Sa Gaoun Per
Ismay Hai Ek Shahr Basa Hua
Shehron Ka Bharpoor Rang Is Mai Hai Racha Hua
………
 
Aur Last One is Esp for My Hero….
 
Is Samungli Say Mujhay Bhi Pyaar Tau Hai
Per Kya Karun Kay Dil Mai Bhara Ghubaar Bhai Hai
Samungli Kay Jahan Posted Hai Mera Hero
Jo Karachi Wapis Anay Ko Tayyar Nahi Hai !

The Would-Be Assassin and the Camera

L.M. Sacasas

It’s not uncommon to hear someone say that they were haunted by an image, often an old photograph. It is a figurative and evocative expression. To say that an image is haunting is to say that the image has lodged itself in the mind like a ghost might stubbornly take up residence in a house, or that it has somehow gotten a hold of the imagination and in the imagination lives on as a spectral after-image. When we speak of images of the deceased, of course, the language of haunting approaches its literal meaning. In these photographs, the dead enjoy an afterlife in the imagination.

Lewis Powell

I’ve lately been haunted myself by one such photograph. It is a well-known image of Lewis Powell, the man hung for his failed attempt to assassinate Secretary of State William Seward. On the same night that John Wilkes Booth murdered the president, Powell was to…

You, I and the MOON.

Last night while thinking a deep thought
I looked up at the sky with a sigh!
Well…to tell the truth, I was thinking of you
Who has affected me as no one dared to do
I tried to think hard, have I really lost it to you
My heart, my integrity, my pride..to name a few!
I never used to talk, let aside think
Whether is love for real and does it really prevail?
There I saw myself looking at the moon
I absently tried to see in it….you!
 
The moon was beautiful as always, I knew
But my heart said it’s not! , when compared to you! 
The moon …I thought was so yellow so bright
Making the sky, rather the world so gay!
But my heart said something different again
Hey. ..its you who makes me feel that way! 
You have given this light of love
Wherever I look it brightens the view!
 
But the moon is so high, I tried to argue
It surely does stand out, like none other do
My heart smiled and negated my views
You have reached higher all,respect, due!
You work with devotion, are focused too
You have attained a position like passionates do!
I tried hard but nothing was gained
So I stubbornly with jealousy blurred these out too
The moon is so proud, os so far away from reach
I knew this for sire would make my heart loose!
 
With hollow tone and teary eyes
My heart smiled ironically. …
Alas! But you see..my beloved is far
Further more out of my reach!
You get to see moon, every other day
My beloved would just not show up for many a days!!!

London Olympics 2012 Women Football Final – 9 Aug at Wembley London (USA vs JPN)

A Dream Came True.

Since childhood, we all have been brought up watching Olympics. Olympics are the mother of all the sporting events. I always thought about that one day i would be watching it live instead on the media or TV sets. It doesnt matter if my countrymen would be playing in that particular game or not, its just a matter of Unity and Peace in sports to support the Olympics. The day came, after done some massive and detailed planning and research, i finally managed to get the tickets for two olympics events. Football and the Boxing. Initially i was little astonished when i was trying to get the tickets online, as i am being non European couldn’t get the ticket online from official website of London 2012 OIympics. I dont want to go into details here, just added few lines on how i manage the tickets, i will give details about it in my next blogs. Keep reading.

Here i just want to share what my eyes saw, my companion CANON camera captured the breathtaking scenes of Women football final. It was the biggest gathering in any of the Olympics games – 80230 official attendance.

And the Party Started :
