Sin City - Late Goodbye

by
Poets of the fall.

Monday Night Bonanza

Well, if you are crazy fan like me of : Journeyman, Heroes, Monday Night Football and Monday Night Raw, then you exactly know what I am talking about. The whole deal is that all this shows are shown on Monday Night between 9-11 PM Eastern.

Well some of the most expensive advertisement spots are during Monday nights, and if everyone is crazy like me flipping channels and not viewing a single ad, I wonder who is watching them. Off course a slightly sane and more importantly an affluent person would possibly be able to afford a DVR; concentrate on one program while the others are being recorded. Uh huh its not me, I would rather prefer them watching them then, than sometimes later.

Lets start with Monday Night Raw:

Recap of Sunday's pay per view event where the Legend Killer Randy Orten became the champion and as always "history was made." Yeah yeah WWE basher may call this joke, all I can say to them: ITS NOT SUPPOSE TO BE TAKEN FOR REALLLLLLLL. Its a male version of a soap opera and not meant to be a ethical sport. Its called Sports Entertainment for a reason, duh !!!!

Then hmm: Heroes

Hiro Nakamura continues is journey back to 16th Century Japan, where he motivates Takezo Kensei: his childhood hero. He continues his motivation of Kensei by encouraging him to get the scrolls and impress her lady love. That was the only part of Heroes I was able to understand, and besides the one where Saylar tries to imbibe Candice Millers powers but fails as he himself hasn't recovered yet from getting impaled by Hiro Nakamura's Samurai sword.

Journeyman :D

One of the best episode, where I was actually able to comprehend everything. This episode was to teach a lesson to Dane that he cannot do everything :). Well scripted, Dan goes back to 1989 San Francisco to prevent casualty arising due to the SFO earthquake. Dane tries his level best to convey the message that an earthquake is going to strike but to deaf ears. His quest to save Charlotte Zilliman and Allen the Attorney fails too. He is again torn apart between Katie (his wife in the present) and Livia (who haunts her in his journey back in time).

Monday Night Football

MNF returned to Buffalo after 13 years with celebrations and fireworks. Bills heavily underdogs against 4-0 Dallas Cowboys. T. Romo (Cowboys QB) has taken the nation by storm with his heroic until he came here to Orchard Park in Buffalo. TO ( Terrel Owens ) widely touted wide receiver known for his histrionics on and off the field too got a beating. Bills defense forced 5 turnovers and with their under-rated rookie QB ( Trent Edwards) are currently leading 24-16. Well Edwards just threw an interception :( and with 6 minutes remaining it could be a the one and only costly mistake of the day. Let me go back to the game, keeping my fingers crossed for the Bills.

The Holy Quran and Science - Part 1


"Zaalekal Kitabo La Raibafiha"


A very famous verse from the holy Quran which means: " this book has no doubts," Indeed !!. It is the book of Allah Subhanahu, was revealed too His beloved Prophet Mohammed (SA) who taught it to his beloved the Ahl-e-Bait (AS) . From Ahl-e-Bait (AS) the knowledge passed from generations to our Aimat Tahireen (AS) and Duat-ul-Mutalkeen.

Mutalkeen here refers to those people who do Takwa ( people who believed in Allah, prayed namaz, bought Islam and who do khairaat (donate to the poors). So Duat-e-Mutalkeen(RA) actually refers to our Daais from 1st to the present 52nd (TUS) who bought Imaan, spread the good word of Islam and explained us the Holy Quran. And with there knowledge of the Quran were able to do Moajizas (miracles).

Now going back to our topic, how is it related to science. Well you must have probably heard many examples relating scientific discoveries to be already mentioned in the Quran. Well the glory lies in the fact that even before the advent of science the Quran existed and more important it has never been altered from its true form. Afterall Allah said in the Quran:

"Inna Nahno Nazalna al Zekr wa Inna lahu lahafezoon"

In which Allah says that He has revealed this book and He Himself will protect it (Inna Lahu lahfezoon) and at the same time also taught it to His prophet Mohammed SA.

Gandhiji - Guest of Honor


Happy Gandhi Jayanti to all the Indians.

Yes, today Oct 2nd Gandhiji the father of our Nation was shot by Nathuram Godse ( a brahmin who was infuriated by Indian government's decisions to transfer the promised 55 Crore Rs to Pakistan). Gandhiji had decided to fast for it because the Indian Government headed by Nehru had initially decided not to transfer those funds, but later did because of Gandhiji's resistance.

So, the message to all the Pakistani brothers who mock Gandhiji is I guess clear that it was Gandhiji who actually fasted for them. It was he who fought for them instead.

Well coming back to Gandhiji's association to us Dawoodi Bohras and the topic in discussion. Gandhiji was Muqaddas Moula Sayedna Taher Saifuddin's (RA) guest of honor at Moula's palace in Dandi.

Dandi march is well known to every Indian. It was when Gandhiji asked the British to amend the Salt Tax laws and off course the angrez disagreed. So Gandhiji decided to march from Sabarmati to Dandi, both cities in Gujarat. He reached Dandi with his followers on the coast of the Arabian Sea and prepared salt which was banned by the British. This was significant as it send shockwaves through the entire nation as a simpleton like Gandhi could defy the omnipotent British, more important through peaceful means of non-violence.

After the historic walk Gandhiiji and some of his followers were invited to rest at "Saifee Villa" and was welcomed by Sayedna Taher Saifuddin AS, a champion of harmony, non-violence and justice in his own way. The picture above taken from:
http://www.hindu.com/mag/2005/03/06/stories/2005030600200200.htm
signifies both leaders incessant quest for communal harmony and fight against oppression.

Later this Palace was dedicated to the Archaeological Survey of India by Sayedna Taher Saifuddin and has become a significant landmark in Indian History.
