“Aa tujhay main gungunana chahta hoon” – Qateel

Posted by Knonie

Apnay honton pay sajana chahta hoon
Aa tujhay main gungunana chahta hoon

Koi aansu teray daaman pay gira kar
Boond ko moti banana chahta hoon

Barh gayi is hadd talak bay-aitamadi
Tujh ko tujh say bhi chhupana chahta hoon

Thak gaya main kartay kartay yaad tujh ko
Ab tujhay main yaad aana chahta hoon

Jo bana baa’is meri nakamion ka
Main ussi k kaam aana chahta hoon

Chhaa raha hai saari basti par andhera
Roshni ko ghar jalana chahta hoon

Phool say paikar tou niklay bay-murrawat
Pathron ko aazmana chahta hoon

Reh gayi thi kuch kami ruswaion main
Phir Qateel uss dar pay jana chahta hoon

– Qateel Shifai

Inspirational speech by Steve Jobs [of Apple] at Stanford University, 2005

Posted by Knonie

Today, Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, and Pixar, resigned from his position. He’s perhaps the most loved figures in IT industry. His commencement speech at Stanford in 2005 is among my favourites. It tells the story of his struggle and how he lived up with failures and kept going on and on…

Check it out and you won’t regret these 14 minutes…

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

– Steve Jobs, Stanford University, 2005.

Kuch tou loug kahain gay, Kishore’s song sung by Knonie

Posted by Knonie

I love music, I love singing, and most of the times I sing to myself, apart from singing among friends circle sometimes. Lately, I recorded my vocals using a karaoke track [digital music of the song without vocals]. I was only doing some recording check, so I thought I should share it with others. It’s a raw version, and only a short clip of the audio song.

For those who don’t know, this song is originally sung by Kishore Kumar, for the movie “Amar Prem“, and it is composed by S.D Burman.

Ali Zafar performs Ghalib- A beautiful soft track

Posted by Knonie

Here’s a very famous Urdu ghazal written by Mirza Ghalib:
“Koi umeed bar nahi aati
Koi soorat nazar nahi aati”

This version is sung by the young Pakistani signer Ali Zafar, in a TV show “Dil se”. This track is also included in his latest Album titled “Jhoom”. It is composed by Yousaf Salah Uddin. This version is so soft and easy-listening. I’m sure you’ll love it.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has also performed this Ghazal in his typical Qawwali style, in the same composition.

Ever wonder what kittens are actually thinking?
Wonder no more. When an adorable 6-year-old inserts her own literal narrative to the photos in a children’s book titled Kittens, the result is quite hilarious.
