Huma!

video
This song by Allan faqir and Muhammad Ali Shehki was released in 1986, and got so much popularity. For many years, it had been watched and listened by every age group. It had some unique poetic features which inspired me even in very young age, I like some very beautiful words:

"Whoever sunk in your Love, what fear he would have with the waves of world?
Say just 'Allah Allah' , Fear just for Allah"

And also i loved "Humma Humma Pyari (Beloved Huma) ", I had habit of singing it whole day although i could not understand the meanings of few lyrics like one just above.

Then one day it happened that i was supposed to think about the meanings of these words.

My younger sister name is Huma and she was just six years old in 1997, she never could hear this song after her birth. One night, when all family members were watching a PTV program, this song was played during the program. She heard it for few moments then Suddenly, when these lines were sung by Allan Faqir (Humma Humma Pyari), she started to look uncomfortable. Everybody noticed it and some of us were being naughty, started singing the same lines again and again.

[Humma Humma Pyari(Beloved Huma) and Humma Humma chal bhayi chal (Lets move on, Huma!)]

She became irresistible and asked in a very annoyed way, "Why is he calling my name again and again, and why all of you are repeating these lines continuously. Does he know who i am? But how could he know me and my name. I never met him."

Everybody laughed on her innocence, i was too not very elder just four years older than her but understood her feelings and reactions.

When she was just near to cry about the whole situation, my elder sister started to explain her, "You know that your name has some unique meanings and therefore they give importance to it. Huma is the name of a bird who sometimes also called as "Bird of Paradise", and who has been described as the bird, when sits on one's head, the person ultimately becomes the most richest man on the earth. So, you should feel pride rather being embarrassed."

"Does this bird really exist?" her question was quite interesting.

My elder sister thought for a moment and then answered, "I am really not confirmed about it, may be and may not be, but the important thing is that your name became quite precious in this sense."

She satisfied but not enough and remained irritated for hearing this song. She is now nineteen and still avoids to listen this song. Even now when i played the song before uploading the video, she looked miserable but i was not interested in her irritation.

From that day, I sometimes think about this term "Huma" and its meanings. It looks that this word is a metaphor and symbolically used to reflect any precious secret of mysticism. Whatever it is, i am not still aware of it and want to know more about it.

Tears are precious


Tears are precious, because they have ability to say whatever they want to.........

They can express Love, they can express Passion, sympathy, friendship, memories, happiness and grief of awareness.

They have a message whenever they shed, they tell us that either we are weak as unable to control them..............OR...............we are too strong and letting them shed without the fear of people. This depends on choice. When choice is correct, tears become precious.

Tears are pearls and the pride of Humanity, when come due to the pain of someone else and relief someone else's pain.

Tears are the Love.
Tears are the care.
Tears are the moral.
Tears are to share.

Tears are the morning dew and give a new hope every time they shed. So, Tears are precious.

Color of the Vision


"I need color assistance", he told the Invigilator. She looked at him like he is not of this world, "Why?"

"I am color blind and therefore i need assistance to recognize the color of these solutions", he presented the special letter for her satisfaction.

She stared at him for a while. He was tall and innocent and his eyes were shiny and beautiful like other teenagers of his age.

Then an other Invigilator came and told the same thing to her. She felt pity for that student and immediately gave him assistance to recognize the colors of the solutions.

For the whole next two hours of exam, she gave attention to that candidate in all possible ways she could.

His face was so smiley that she stared many times at his face and his eyes. He was an energetic young man she had ever seen. The same time she felt pity for him.

How one can spend his life when he never could know what relaxation and peace are hidden in the blue color of the sky and ocean. What is the meaning of his life when he can not differentiate the red and the green, the two most vital colors of life, colors of flowers and its leaves. What else he is going to do on the earth if he doesn't know the beauty of pink and purple.

She had to think much about this for the two hours.

At the end of exam, he was so relaxed and paid thanks to her a dozen times. She smiled and asked, "Does this color blindness make you sad?, as everyone wants to see the beauty of these colors."

He smiled more brightly, "No, certainly not." His tone was determined like a matured man although he was not more than 17.

"I don't think about this, I just have one thing to concentrate and that's God's mercy for me. What if he would have made me blind rather than color blind, i could never be able to see the world and you just talking about the colors. At least i am blessed in this way and can see the beauty of the world. And as far as colors are concerned, these are present behind my eyes, inside my vision and i can feel the beauty of each color with that vision."

She could not answer him. He was much elder than his physical age.

He took hold of his belongings and got ready to go.

"I don't know that your eyes are really black or only black to me, but i know one thing. Your eyes are beautiful." His tone was respecting and loving and his smile was like the flow of the river.
