दुराय नैनाँ बनाए बतियाँ #AmeerKhusro

As most of us are exposed to Ghulami song penned by #gulzar which has nothing but four three words in Common, it it important to know the original work of Legendary Ameer Khusro, the 13th century saint-poet……
यकायक अज़ दिल दो चश्म जादू
ब-सद-फ़रेबम ब-बुर्द तस्कीं

किसे पड़ी है जो जा सुनावे

पियारे पी को हमारी बतियाँ

चूँ शम-ए-सोज़ाँ चूँ ज़र्रा हैराँ
ज़ मेहर-ए-आँ-मह बगश्तम आख़िर

न नींद नैनाँ न अंग चैनाँ
न आप आवे न भेजे पतियाँ #AmeerKhusro

#Gulzar for #Salman - Jaan.E.Mann is a fav soundtrack (of a disappointing film)..

सौ हसरतें, पर तेरा ग़म नहीं #g

Jaan.E.Mann was a terrific album of its time with an amazing set of songs which were Poetic, Melodious, Youthful, Visual & Experimental with a sane #AnuMalik at work with #Gulzar & Sonu as the key drivers

सब्र से इश्क़ महरूम है #gulzar

My fav is the grand musical innovative take where d song becomes interesting tool for story telling to convey d back-story of protagonists (romance-marriage-career- mistakes-separation-divorce) in just 8mins song #JaanEMann

Thread: For my weekly cinema column in Mirror/TOI Plus, I've been writing a series of pieces on #trainsinIndiancinema. First came this column, which opens with the Lumiere Brothers but zooms quickly into Avtar Kaul's strange and vivid award-winner #27Down:…
For the second piece in the series, I looked back at what the railways meant to British colonial India - and Anglo Indians - through the Ava-Gardner-starrer #BhowaniJunction:…
Third column in my #trainsinIndiancinema series suggested that in the #1950s work of filmmaker #BimalRoy, trains were a lifeline -- but simultaneously harbingers of doom.…

20 July 1972 saw the untimely demise of singer-extraordinaire #GeetaDutt at the young age of 41. But her tragically short life hasn't made the slightest dent in her lasting legacy as one of our greatest & most versatile artistes. Let us revisit 12 of her best songs!

#GeetaDutt made her playback debut under Hanuman Prasad in 1946, but it was #SDBurman whose 'Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya' from Do Bhai (1947) made her an overnight sensation. Notice how her voice ebbs & rises to fit the melancholy & angst of the song. She was barely 17 here!

In 1951, #GeetaDutt sang 'Tadbeer Se Bigdi Hui', a breezy guitar-led number for #SDBurman in #GuruDutt's directorial debut #Baazi. Geeta's voice, flitting between mischief & flirtation, still sounds unbelievably fresh!

Even @VikramMotwane's #Lootera prominently features it!

Today, more than 100 MEPs have demanded an investigation into the killing of Muhammad #Gulzar, who our investigation shows was likely killed by Greek forces.…
The Greek government responded to our investigation by calling it “fake news”.

However, despite having access to multiple CCTV cameras and witnesses, they have failed to offer any evidence that supports their claims.

You can watch the full video of our investigation in collaboration with @ForensicArchi, @LHreports and @derspiegel here.

Dear #Mumbai:Is this ur 11 year gift to me: acute bronchitis & loads of meds?The doc looked apologetic while checking out my nearly wheezing state. It all started with the big #Deonar dumpyard fire of 2016, followed by3more huge fires (apparently manmade)in 3 weeks 😡#AirQuality Image
I’d hardly coughed b4 that, now I dread December-1 of my favourite months.When #Gulzar wrote “seene mein jalan, ankhon mein toofan sa kyon hai, is shahar mein har shaqs pareshaan sa kyon hai...”did he predict my condition&of several thousand #Mumbaikars just wanting to breathe.
We don’t even know what fresh air is anymore!This #MaximumCity rejected #CharlesCorrea as he planned for a city of hope and love, in turn he also left it to deal with its own greed 😱#SaveAareyForest #Letusbreathe #AirPollution #ClimateJustice #cleanenergy #ActOnClimate @Nitika_A
