From Sitab Diara to Delhi

The senior most leader of BJP L.K.Advani started his “Jan Chetna Yatra” form Sitab Diara.It is the birthplace of Jaiprakash Narain who is considered the father of agitation against corruption.

The journey from Somnath to Sitab Diara has witnessed lots of ups and downs.Advani is tagged with "PM in waiting" for last ten years.Will he be able to eradicate this tag .will this yatra do a favour to him to be the Prime Minister of India.

This yatra is being considered as his last chance to grab the opportunity to be the Prime minister.will he be the PM ,will the country witness the change,there are many more questions in the mind of the general people.The specific word Jan chetna reveals that the habitats of India are sleeping.BJP is trying to make them awaken.The internal rift amongst the leaders in BJP is known to all.Either the Sadbhavna mission of Narendra Modi or the question of projecting someone as the PM candidate is a matter of debate.what so ever it happens one thing has become very obvious that the political scenario of the country is changing with the amount of corruption and scams revealing day by day.

The birth of Anna and Anaagiri has raised the voice against govt.The initiatives that should be done by the opposition did by Anna and Ramdev.May be the opposition got the alarm.The common notion strike the iron while it is hot turned in make the iron hotter by striking it hard.BJP still is not aloof from the policy of hidutwa.RSS doesn't want Advani,Modi is showing his strength going beyond the politics of the state,in such condition the common people think that who is going to be the candidate of PM either Advani,Modi or anyone else as it has been always said by the party members that there are many more person who can be projected for the post of PM at the high time.

What is the destination for this yatra is not concrete,BJP is trying to regain its roots.This would be worthless to point out that not only the rath yatra of Advani is detined to Delhi but BJP is also heading its destination to Delhi to get the reign.The commoner are suppressed with price rise and inflation ,the corruption is also neck headed.

Now this would be worth watching that would the PM in waiting get the thrown or retire from the active politics.BJP has the chief ministers in five states and alliance in one(Bihar).Now the calculus of politics reveals that the integration of the power of these states may prove worthy in the centre also.There is no dearth of doubt that Annagiri is also propelling the people to bring the change.2014 loksabha elections is not far, all the political parties are cruising on the politics of rathyatra.

This would be very interesting to see that which political party is going to destined his rath to the throne of Delhi.Till then wait and watch analyze the politics of everyone.The tag of "PM in waiting" will loom on the haed of Advani or will he be the PM .

Full stop on ghazal singing

If you would try hard to remind the name of ghazal singers the first name in your mind will pop up that is Jagjit Singh 1941-2011:Remarkable humility in how he approached his art and forthrightness in his beliefs set apart this singer who 'caressed' words.He was popular as "Jeet" for his kin but couldn't win the battle of life.

When i got the news of Jagjit Singh's brain hemorrhage kidding to my colleague i said that make special pages for him.2011 is witnessing the deaths of so many prominent personalities,may be that's why but this was really absurd when i got the shocking news of his demise.

Listening his ghazal was just finding the eternity the wordings,the utterances and the lively performance.

Everything was there if you would have as lucky to watch his live concert.Born in 1941 in Sriganganagar, Rajasthan,to Punjabi parents,he learnt music at the feet of Pandit Chhaganlal Sharma in the early years of his life, then under Ustad Jamaal Khan of the Sainia gharana. His grooming would eventually ensure that unlike other ghazal singers who attained popularity in the ‘80s only to fade away, Jagjit was not only able to ride a crest but guard against any trough.

I missed the live shows as well as a glimpse of him.people these days even live in 80 and 90s why the good people die early.This is the life and the truth about it.Ghazal has depth and its own meaning and expression.There is a very common notion that (Ghazal wahi sunta hai jike paas akal ahoti hai)the mean of saying so is one who ocuupies the deep understanding listens the ghazals and understand it.

A self portrait character for himself in the age when the identification of ghazals was to established there are not many more names to count on the fingure,Talat Mehmood, Noor Jehan and some more names but he gave a dizzy height to the ghazal in the Indian film industry and left the inspiration for the kid like Ranjeet Rajwada, a SA RE GA MA PA contestant who got the future of gazhal awarad for his extra-ordinary singing.

A voice which carved the ghazal singing will not be heard now.There is a complete void in this arena.people prefer to listen now Jazz,Discathics rap and bhangra not the ghazals.The sweet sound of Jagjit will remain in the hearts of millions but only to remember.This is really a great loss not only for the Music industry but also for the fans who loved him form the core of heart.

Being a music lover the words don't have the capability to express the feeling,love,sympathy and sorrow to loose such an eminent personality of the music industry.Now only his songs will be on the leaps in the isolation.

He is survived by his wife,Chitra Singh.
