Rainbow – Nature’s own Spectacular Light Show

It’s wonderful to sit on the 15th floor and gaze at the beautiful sky.. once in a while..a clear picturesque view ..not blocked by other high-rises, the concrete jungle on one side and greenery on the other…work really relaxes me these days!!

Concrete Jungle

Overlooking Hooghly

Today what I saw….was just amazing ..a full rainbow..the kind of rainbow which I had seen in pictures and the ones I used to draw as a kid. My heart leapt up when I beheld the rainbow in the sky. I was so excited that just couldn’t stop myself from shouting out..and disturbing the others..and withing seconds all were beholding nature’s light show in awe!! The day finally gave me another view of a very beautiful sky and I just couldn’t resist but capture the beauty!!

And here presenting it in a slideshow form.

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

How do I change?

If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labour.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.

Updated:

In the excitement of discovering SplashCast and getting this show done, I just forgot to discuss the beauty of this song “Chup se Aaye” (or is it Kyun Chor Gaye Raaste..anyway..what’s there in a name!!) from his unreleased album…I guess it’s titled “Hungaami Halat”.
Again, a mind blowing song by Atif Aslam. My God how does he write such great songs..anyone in love or not will definitely fall in love with his songs….for me..his songs just reflect my feelings…no wonder …..his songs are so close to my heart!!! And the lyrics…..uff…so heart-touching..just love them.. so here are the lyrics of Kyun Chor Gaye…..not lyrics should call them poetry… 🙂

Chupke se aaye yaad teri yahaan
Sirf main jaanoon tu hai kahaan kahaan

Hawa tum, nasha tum.
Meri raahaton ka pata tum
Mere aibon ko jo dhank de
Woh paak si rida tum

Kyun chor gaye raaste
Kabhi saath chale thhe jin pe

Kab tak bharoon khud mein junoon
Tum na milo toh kaise sahoon
Apni wafa pe hai toh yakeen
Tum saath na do toh kya main karoon

hooo hooo hoo hoo hoo
naaaa na nanaaa naaaa na nanaaa naaaa na nanaaa

Kyun chor gaye raaste
Kabhi saath chale thhe jin pe

“Do You Know?” – Enrique Iglesias

Insomniac - Enrique IglesiasAs I was reading through a friend’s blog, who is going through a rough time, I came across this song..which I think reflects his current state of affairs. Anyway, am not discussing his personal life here. Well coming back to the song, titled “Do You Know?” ..it’s a track from Enrique Iglesias latest album “Insomniac”. It was the beautiful lyrics of the song which caught my attention and immediately wanted to listen to it..n within two minutes thanks to Google and YouTube I was listening to it.

Here’s is what I got from YouTube…..searched a lot for the video…but it has been removed..so make do with just the audio!!!

Album: Insomniac

Artist : Enrique Iglesias

Iglesias will release his new album Insomniac on June 12, 2007.

I know some people are very bad and will again ask me from where to download the song..so it’s for such kinda people. So do not complain..go ahead download the mp3.

Lyrics of the song:

Do you know?
Do you know?

Do you know what it feels like loving someone that’s in a rush to throw you away?
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do ya?
Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?

If birds flying south is a sign of changes
At least you can predict this every year
Love, you never know the minute it ends suddenly
I can’t get it to speak
Maybe if I knew all the things it took to save us
I could fix the pain that bleeds inside of me
Look in your eyes to see something about me
I’m standing on the edge and I don’t know what else to give.

Do you know what it feels like loving someone that’s in a rush to throw you away?
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do ya?
Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?

How can I love you?
How can I love you?
How can I love you?
How can I love you?
If you just don’t talk to me, babe.

I flow through my act
There’s a question: Is she needed?
And decide all the man I can ever be.
Looking at the last 3 years like I did
I could never see us ending like this.

(Do you know?)

Seeing your face no more on my pillow
Is a scene that’s never ever happened to me.

(Do you know?)

But after this episode I don’t see
You could never tell the next thing life could be

Do you know what it feels like loving someone that’s in a rush to throw you away?
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do ya?
Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?

Do you know what it feels like loving someone that’s in a rush to throw you away?
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do ya?
Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?

(Do you know?)
(Do you know?)
(Do you know?)
(Do you know?)

Do you know what it feels like loving someone that’s in a rush to throw you away?
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do ya?
Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?

Do you know what it feels like loving someone that’s in a rush to throw you away?
(Do you know how it feels?)
Do you know what it feels like to be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed?
(Do you know how it feels?)

(Do you know? Do you know? Do you know? Do you?)
(Do you know? Do you know? Do you know? Do you?)

OCEAN’S Thirteen Teasers

I absolutely loved Ocean’s Eleven. It was well-put together, contained great performances, and was endearing. The sequel (Ocean’s Twelve) couldn’t pack in the punch….n was kinda disappointment..but with so many hot guys in it..I can still sit through the movie..one more time. 🙂

Ocean’s 13 PosterOcean’s 11 Poster

Ocean’s 12 Poster

So now comes Ocean’s Thirteen which completes the trilogy. Daniel Ocean or Danny (played by sexy George Clooney) and his merry band of heist-pullers, which includes Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, are back in ‘Ocean’s 13’. In order to pull off their most ambitious job yet, the crew teams up with erstwhile enemy Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia). When ruthless casino owner Willy Bank (Al Pacino) double-crosses one of the original Ocean’s eleven – Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould) – Danny and the gang team up one more time to see if they can break “The Bank”.

Here are two trailers of the forthcoming movie which look tempting enough to book your tickets for the first show of the first day.


The movie hits cinema halls on June 8th in the US.

Jhoom Barabar Jhoom – Music Review

The title of the movie is taken off from a very poular qawwali (though am not great fan of this genre of music)of which decade… I dunno!! I hear it was very popular….am looking for the mp3 to check it out …what it really is it all about! Well the rushes of the movie was quite impresssive, so had to check out the music…..and i think the album is quite …differently flavored…specially the title song “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” has a distinct taste. Well the trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has once again been successful in giving a hit score. Here is a sample of all the songs from the album to check out..n if you like them..go ahead and buy the CD to enjoy full versions ..and dont ask me from where to download..cos I hate pirated music!!!!

List of songs (in order as they play):
Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
Ticket to Hollywood
JBJ
Bol Na Halke
Kiss of Love
Jhoom
Jhoom Jam (Instrumental)
