The message from US & Europe: You can kill your people with impunity as long as you mask your dictatorship as a ‘kingdom’.
Can hear the piano music as it wafts into the room. The neighbours seem to be welcoming me back to LDN.
Mad dash through thick fog to make the flight.
Locked inside the plane on tarmac for 3 hours as fog cleared.
Pretty babe on the next seat but I chose to move to a more comfortable seat in the first row.
Missed connection by 2 hours.
Given alternate flight 4 hours later.
Pretty girl continuing on this flight as well.
Sar zameen-e-hindustan, as salaam alaikum!
Mera naam Baadshah Khan hai.
Ishq mera mazhab, mohabbat mera iman hai.
jiske liye Shiri aur Laila ke naam phulon ki khushbhu ban gaye,
jiske liye Farahad ne pahadon ka sina cheer kar dhood ki neher baha di,
jiske liye Majanu ne sehraw ki khaakh chhaani aur aaj bhi zinda hai taarikh ban kar,
Ussi mohabbat ke liye Kabul ka ye pathan Hindustan ki sar zameen se mohabbat ki khair mangne aaya hai.
Aazmayish kadi hai,
imtihan mushkil hai,
lekin haunsla buland hai.
Jeet hamesha mohabbat ki hui hai,
Sadiyon se yahi hota aayah hai, yahi hoga.
Roshani gar Khuda ko ho manzoor, aandhiyon mein chirag jalte hain… Khuda gawah hai!
Let it be history. Don’t make it your destiny.
Adi, on ‘historic disputes/issues’
Khuda ke waaste parda na kaabe se uthaa zaalim
Kaheen aisa na ho yahan bhi wahi kaafir sanam nikle
So critical to relationships, so hard to create, so easy to lose. Yet, we play around.
Another example… newer, bigger is not always better:

P.S.: I think the one little identifies with this movie :)
All day I built up my resolve to return to cycling.
All evening the wind has been building up, daring me to go out.
I need to start cycling.
For my sanity, if not for the body.
Feeling too stale.. too bland.. too devoid of emotion and interest these last few weeks.
Need to get out on the road and feel the air again…
Need to feel the pain in legs, a sore ass and the cold wind on face … to feel the beauty of the ride…
I need to start cycling. Soon.
