I have seen this movie countless time but I can watch one more time just for the pleasure of watching Madhubala in color.

Ghazals are not only in India!!! India has long history before it became india. Ghasals are spread through almost all Central Asia.
One thing I admit, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal... hold on to traditions stronger than many other countries in Asia.

And Russian speaking doesn't mean he/she is actually russian or even have been to Russia ever. Russian speaking nowadays means usually that the person was born in one of USSR countries. All those counries have their own language and culture, some of those cultures are much closer to indian than to russian.

By the way, in Russian, Ghazal is called "Gazel'" - which is also animal, but I'm pretty sure some russians (who were born and raised in Russia)have heard of them.



I was only aware of ghazal in Hindustani traditon only. There are fixed rules for refrain,meter and rhyme in Ghazal (urdu/hindi). Are there similar rules for other languages?

Yes, it is his mother tongue, I believe he is from Gujrat. Even urdu speakers can tell which words Hindi speaker will understand which not.
Not that he couldn't understand anything, but he had to ask a words translation every min or two. With songs (especially gazals) it's worse for some reason.



A ghazal loving Russian!!! great!!

A native Hindi speaker will understand movie/play in Urdu (there is visual context for dialogue ) but poetry/Ghazal is a different ball game. Most of earlier poetry (India) in urdu was Persian /Arabic infuenced. Now a days most of the indian ghazals are in Hindustani not Urdu.

She used to live next door. I was 6 she was 4 when I first saw her.
For few years she was just another 'girl' then she hit 16 and was the only girl. There were few sparks here and there. I moved to another town for college. We lost track.
Saw her again last year in Chicago.... she is married!!

I think it was Mir Publications Moscow, which used to print Hindi translations of Russian books. I still has some of those books back in India. All the stories used to have funny names ( 13 Ivans, Rolling Sweat Pea... Names Translated from memory)
I even bought a book on Russian high school mathematics (when I was in high school). Man it was tough...
When I was preparing for my Engineering. Entrance test...there were Pinsky and Irodove (Nightmare)

When the Software industry had badly gone down, three giants Sun,
SCO(UNIX)
and Microsoft started producing condoms and named them Java-condo,
CondomiX
, and MS-Condom respectively. A customer using Java-condo complained to
Sun
that the condom doesn't fit correctly.

Sun replied: "Wait till we get the ISO standard".

They boasted that it will fit to any size irrespective of underlying
structure.

Well, the customer switched to CondomiX and found that by the time he
finishes reading the instructions, given along with CondomiX, his wife
was
sleeping and he himself
forgetting why he is using CondomiX.

Finally he switched to MS-Condom.

To his surprise it was so good...and comfortable!. He used it happily.

Three months later he found that his wife was pregnant. He got angry and
complained to Microsoft.

He got his reply from Microsoft:

Speed of light may have changed recently


The speed of light, one of the most sacrosanct of the universal physical constants, may have been lower as recently as two billion years ago - and not in some far corner of the universe, but right here on Earth.

Throughout the debate, physicists who argued against any change in alpha have had one set of data to fall back on. It comes from the world's only known natural nuclear reactor, found at Oklo in Gabon, West Africa.

Since 1946, this company has been a leading food brand. Its ad campaign is as famous as it is and
is set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running ad campaign.
The company's name means 'priceless'. Name the company.
a) Del Monte
b) Nestle
c) Amul


The correct answer is.... (highlight the text below to see the answer)
Amul.
Amul means 'priceless' in Sanskrit. The brand name 'Amul,' from the Sanskrit 'Amoolya,' was suggested
by a quality control expert in Anand. Amul products have been in use in millions of homes since 1946.
In 1967the first Utterly Butterly Delicious Amul campaign was started.
For 30 odd years the Utterly Butterly girl has managed to keep her fan following intact,
and the ads are now ready to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for being the longest
running campaign ever. The ultimate compliment to the butter came when a British company recently
launched a butter and called it Utterly Butterly.
