Ali Noor’s Diary

January 2, 2009

The post is taken from Ali Noor’s (Noori) diary. He has been a father recently and this is his first love poem

The Love of my life…a few hours away
I never thought I’d do this

That I write for someone I love..

Always considered it an injustice to the emotion…

But I can’t help it tonight

In this hospital room…on a mattress 4 feet away from your embrace

I feel the meaning of love

I love you more than I could ever imagine…

Tonight… we sleep the last hours of our childhood…

We begin the journey of adulthood tomorrow…

You are the best companion…

And I could not wish for any other…

For in four hours you shall be a Mother!

Jal and Atif: Who is Worse

December 30, 2008

When the overrated song “addat” came out I used to wonder who among them made the great song of that time. Who among them would be the better one, the real one behind the song.

Now, few years have passed and both artists came up with couple of albums. The Jal/Atif competition and controversy remained. Both artists kept fighting, but i believe their fight was for who will come up with worse music. Atif on one hand tried to be the rock artist which he isn’t and can’t be while Jal on the other, couldn’t make lousier album than “Sajni”.

Rock music and Pakistan

December 29, 2008

Pakistani musicians specifically of the genre rock are said to be Asia’s best. Some American author (I don’t remember the name of the guy) traveled throughout the world to search for his soul mate music. He traveled places, learned about cultures,listened their music,wrote his book and concluded that Pakistani rock is the best rock music in Asia. In Muslim countries he rated Pakistan as first while Iran and Turkey were runner ups. That is how a foreigner respected us for something great we did and our own Pakistanis didn’t.
