Favourite Song #2

I love this song very much. I have a video also. This is a special dedication to my sweet hubby Sunil Manalody.

Movie – Pyar Tune Kya Kiya

Mujhko Khuda Ne De Diya Pyaar Tere Jo Saathiya
Maano Jaise Mil Gaya Hai Jannat Ka Rasta
Main Chalti Thi Raaste Ek Manzil Ke Waaste
Tujhse Milke Yun Laga Jana Mujhko Hai Kahan
Hum Dono Ko Milna Tha Jaana Pyaar Yunhi Khilna Tha Jaana
Meri Aankhon Mein Teri Saason Mein Bas Tu Hi Hai Jaana

Mujhko Khuda Ne De Diya Pyaar Tere Jo Saathiya
Maano Jaise Mil Gaya Hai Jannat Ka Rasta
Main Chalti Thi Raaste Ek Manzil Ke Waaste
Tujhse Milke Yun Laga Jana Mujhko Hai Kahan

Tu Rahe To Rahe Meri Zindagi Kehta Hoon Rab Se
Sang Tere Bitaoon Mein Har Khushi Ab Se Yahin Se
Tera Naam Meri Zubaan Se Na Jaaye
Jo Tu Na Rahe To Meri Jaan Jaaye
Meri Aankhon Mein Meri Hi Saason Mein Bus Tu Hi Hai Jaana

Mujhko Khuda Ne De Diya Pyaar Tere Jo Saathiya
Maano Jaise Mil Gaya Hai Jannat Ka Rasta
Main Chalti Thi Raaste Ek Manzil Ke Waaste
Tujhse Milke Yun Laga Jana Mujhko Hai Kahan

Faasle Ho Rahe Hai Kam Jaaneman Bas Ek Pal Mein
Ek Jaan Ban Gaye Hai Yeh Do Badan Bas Ek Pal Mein
Yeh Jo Bhi Nasha Hai Bada Hi Maza Hai
Yahan Dhadkano Ke Yehi To Sada Hai
Meri Aankhon Mein Meri Hi Saason Mein Bus Tu Hi Hai Jaana

Mujhko Khuda Ne De Diya Pyaar Tere Jo Saathiya
Maano Jaise Mil Gaya Hai Jannat Ka Rasta
Main Chalti Thi Raaste Ek Manzil Ke Waaste
Tujhse Milke Yun Laga Jana Mujhko Hai Kahan
Hum Dono Ko Milna Tha Jaana Pyaar Yunhi Khilna Tha Jaana
Meri Aankhon Mein Teri Saason Mein Bas Tu Hi Hai Jaana

Mujhko Khuda Ne De Diya Pyaar Tere Jo Saathiya
Maano Jaise Mil Gaya Hai Jannat Ka Rasta
Main Chalti Thi Raaste Ek Manzil Ke Waaste
Tujhse Milke Yun Laga Jana Mujhko Hai Kahan
Maano Jaise Mil Gaya Hai Jannat Ka Rasta
Tujhse Milke Yoon Laga Manzil Meri Hai Yahan

IT’S STRANGE ISN’T IT?

Isn’t it strange how a 20 rupee note seems like such a large
amount when
you donate it to Church, but
such a small amount
when you go shopping?

Isn’t it strange how 2 hours seem so long when
you’re at Church, and how
short they seem when you’re
watching a good movie?

Isn’t it strange that you can’t
find a word to say when
you’re praying,
but you have no trouble
thinking what to talk about
with a friend?

Isn’t it strange how difficult
and boring it is to read
one chapter
of the Bible, but how easy
it is to read 100 pages of
a popular novel ?

Isn’t it strange how everyone
wants front-row-tickets
to concerts or
games, but they do whatever
is possible to sit at the last
row in Church?

Isn’t it strange how we need to
know about an event for
a Church 2-3
weeks before the day so we can
include it in our agenda, but we can
adjust it for other events in
the last minute?

Isn’t it strange how difficult it
is to learn a fact about God to share it
with others, but how easy
it is to learn, understand,
extend and repeat gossip?

Really strange!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! right?

First-time Indian novelist wins UK’s Booker Prize

Debut Indian novelist Aravind Adiga on Tuesday won the Man Booker Prize, one of the world’s most prestigious literary awards, with “The White Tiger”.

It was only the third time in the Booker’s 40-year history that a first-time writer had claimed the award, and, at 33, Adiga was also one of its youngest winners.

He received a cheque for 50,000 pounds ($88,000) at a gala dinner in London and can expect not only overnight literary fame but also a sharp rise in book sales in the runup to Christmas.

Booker organisers say last year’s winner, Anne Enright, has sold around 500,000 copies of “The Gathering”, largely due to the prize. The White Tiger is published by Atlantic Books.

The White Tiger follows Balram Halwai, the son of a rickshaw puller whose dream of escaping the poverty of his village takes him on a journey to the bright lights of Delhi and Bangalore, where he will do almost anything to get to the top.

“It was important for me to present someone from this colossal underclass, which is perhaps as big as 400 million, and to do so without sentimentality,” Adiga told reporters after the awards ceremony.

“The book has done very well in India. It was a bestseller before this was announced. There’s been a need for a book like this,” he added.

Michael Portillo, chairman of the five-member judging panel, praised The White Tiger for tackling important social and political issues in modern-day India.

“What set this one apart was its originality,” Portillo said. “For many of us this was entirely new territory — the dark side of India.

“It’s a book that gains from dealing with very important social issues — the divisions between rich and poor and the impossibility of the poor escaping from their lot in India.”
