Faith, Unity, Discipline

“Faith, Unity, Discipline”… Those 3 words…! the principles to live by.

Faith: Source of hope, a point of sticking out when there’s no apparent chance of doing so… It isn’t about religion, it’s about faith in ourselves – individualism, faith in humanity, faith in innovation and creativity, and faith in radical ideas never tried before. But even when faith is blind, it’s never without a rationale. Faith isn’t about shooting an arrow in a dark, just randomly.

Unity: Source of strength, a point of harmony when both homogeneous and heterogeneous groups embrace each other for the shared goal. It’s in co-operation, collaboration, diversity and pluralism, the secret for sustainability of any species lies. But even when united, it’s essential to critically evaluate each other’s point of reason and constructively improve on the set of ideologies. That’s how any group would make a significant progress, otherwise the result is stagnation.

Discipline: Source of focused action, a point of following practices when results become increasingly better. It isn’t about a routine, it’s about a process that relies on self-improvement. It’s discipline that leads us from a point of inception to a point of action, where no exploitation or act of violence is carried on its way. Action that’s focused on a long-term results rather than a short-term, focusing on a value that matters rather than one that sells better. Consistency in discipline can only come when practices induced in it always have a margin of improvement, and when this fact is never forgotten by the practitioners.

These 3 principles, have a power to change the lives of people… and as a matter of fact, they’ve. My respects for the leader who gave us this gift. But perhaps it’s a gift that we’ve got but has not earned yet.

“I hope” that “we together” make a “sincere effort” to understand the “way of progress” and continue to question “why” behind each “what”, to rediscover the principles of life.

Unse Nain Mila Kar Dekho – “Let yourself be spellbound by her…”

https://soundcloud.com/ch-atif-sarwar/unse-nain-mila-kar-dekho

Translation:

(Undeniably your conduct is full of tenderness and compassion.
Merely a coincidence though, I never made past your selection.)

Let yourself be spellbound by her…

Let her eyes cast a charm on yours…
Let this deception be part of yours..
What secret lies in unity of distance
Let revelation of it come to your fours..

Hiding under the silence of an evening someday…
Try humming those old songs of sophomore…

Since it is a pitch-black night today..
Have an attempt to illuminate your cores…

Have spent an entire life in remembrance….

Brief moments of night spent in your company
a stretch of period remains in saintly waiting
Though it’s an event of happiness, meeting thee
Post meeting, sadness is all that remains in me

Have spent whole life in remembrance
For once try slipping into the trance doors..

– Original lyrics by Munir Niazi, rendition by Ghulam Ali saheb.

Urdu version:

ان سے نین ملا کے دیکھو
یہ دھوکا بھی کھا کے دیکھو

دوری میں کیا بھید چھپا ہے
اس کا کھوج لگا کے دیکھو

کسی اکیلی شام کی چپ میں
گیت پرانے گا کے دیکھو

آج کی رات بہت کالی ہے
سوچ کے دیپ جلا کے دیکھو

دل کا گھر سنسان پرا ہے
دکھ کی دھوم مچا کے دیکھو

جاگ جاگ کر عمر کٹی ہے
نیند کے دوارے جا کے دیکھو
