We all love change right?

We all love change right?

Yup! As we progress in our lives, we try to make things better and better for people around us. Changing anything does not mean that you completely change everything but keeping previous good elements and eliminating or improving on flawed ones.
So here comes my newly "dressed up" blog. :D

Shah Jo Risalo - Intro

Shah Jo Risalo - Intro

I've decided to narrate the series of poems of Shah jo Risalo written by Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai (SALB). The book consists of 29 poems in total. Every poem has been given a title of "Sur" meaning "a musical note". Every sur or note is then divided into different stories (daastaan), like first poem is divided into 3 stories. Some stories have concluding...

Imagination versus speed of light!

Imagination versus speed of light!

The only problem in conversion of matter into energy is the speed of light. According to Einstien:

"We can convert any object into energy, if we throw it or move it with the square of speed of light."

Echo & Call (Peace - Chap1 - Stanza 5)

Original version can be found here

             The Echo and the call are same,
             if you sound's secret knew
             They both were one, but two became
             only when 'hearing' came.

We'll go word by word:

  1. Call: I think this word has been used for the "messenger/teacher" here. Like the one who tells or delivers you certain message/thought. I think we can take it as "source of the message" as well
  2. Echo: Scientifically, it is the repetition of a sound resulting from reflection of the sound waves. In this context, "message taker/interpreter" is being represented by this word.
  3. Sound: The medium through which the message/thought is coming.
  4. Sound's secret: The secret way to use this medium. It is a secret as we don't know it yet, but he knows it.(Bhitai has used the word "you" instead of "we" in the second line. So i am asuming that he knew this secret)
  5. Hearing: Scientifically, it is one of the Human's senses to understand any message. Here this word can be taken as the "resistance" to understand the message/thought.

As far as I've undersood, Bhitai is saying that whoever is giving a message to you, in any form, in any reflection, every echo is equal to the call. So when we look at world in this manner, everywhere is source and every thing is covered in light.

But due to our desire to be "different" from others, and to walk with our heads up, we start to see impurities in this World, in every scene, in every thought, in every color...

So we'll have to hear the message as Bhitai has heard. But we can only "repair" or "improve" our hearing after we know the sound's secret.

Currently have 17 comments:

  1. My understanding is that the message and the messenger is same, there is no difference in the sound and the instrument and this is the secret. The call is the origin and the sound is its creation and one comes after other, if you reverse the order the reality would still be same.

    Great job rIZ.

  2. "..everywhere is source and every thing is covered in light." This post is so deep and reassuring...reminded me of the program on QUARKS with Krista Tippett on Being. I just met an Astro Physicist who said similar things...I'm taking your post as another ECHO...Shukria!

  3. riz, thank you for finally posting it. I was waiting for it for a long time and the result is so beautiful.
    "They both were one, but two became
    only when 'hearing' came."

    hearing, seems the only difference. It is quite thought provoking.

  4. Finally, your tribute to Bhitai on his Urs! :)
    But you better not wait for the next Urs to place the next post! Acha! :@

    If I take it in terms of light, its just like we see our own reflection in the mirror... the same person on both sides. The origin and the creation is the same unless we want to see a difference b/w ourself and the person in the mirror or in terms of sound b/w the Echo and the Call!

    I am not sure if I am able to make sense! :o :D

  5. Thank you for coming Sir Akhtar.

    Hmmm... message = messenger.

    to get a better idea, imagine a postman coming to your door, instead of giving any parcel, he says "I am the parcel. Take me"

    ...interesting. :)

  6. Connie, thanks for coming.

    Hey!! that "Shukria" in the end is so appealing!!

    Mujhe acha laga(I felt good) :)

  7. Urooj, finally the wait got over :p

    Yeah "hearing" is the only resistance in understanding the truth. But i am thinking that isn't it natural?

    Like every sense has its limitation. That's why after Sun sets, we can't see the other side of Earth (where the

    same Sun shines, and people of that region of Earth label it as "day time")

    but at the same time, people like Rumi, Iqbal, Bhitai etc understood this message. So if they can, everybody can.

    "Everyone" is invited to share their comments on this as well... :)

  8. Hehehe... no i don't want to see more earthquakes you know :p

    Hmmm thanks for adding another angle Komal. So this mirror has ability to let you see yourself, in the same original form.

    Hmmm... nice. Your comment just reminded me of those birds who collectively saw themselves as one, in the form of Simurgh.

    Thanks :)

  9. rIZ you are a genius, no mean it!

  10. Arey kion sharminda kar rahe hain sir...

    if a person is good himself, he always sees goodness :)

    Thanks for the praise. I am feeling honored!

  11. I feel message is important in todays world not messenger.

  12. Thank you for coming Talha. Yeah you are right. but this doesn't mean that you ignore the messenger. He is important as well. Because sometimes, you yourself are the messenger, bringing message to yourself :)
    (where does your/mine/everyone else's excellent thoughts/ideas come from?)

  13. i guess the poet is trying to say that since we dont know the sound's secret so we had interpreted the message according to our understanding which has made the call and echo (the message and its repetition) different from each other

  14. Exactly!

    Agreed. To cook some more food (for thought):

    "Why are we misinterpreting the message?"

  15. because we all have our lacking....i shud say we all have our limits of understanding which is not the same among each and every human, it depends on one's mental growth and we decipher the meaning of a message according to the limits of our is just like our hearing range that one can hear up to20 khz same goes for understanding or absorbing the meaning of the message but the only difference is that it all depends upon one's capability as in the mental growth one has due to his knowledge and experiences

  16. and i would also like to say it is not misinterpretation but an interpretation according to our own level of understanding

  17. "....that one can hear up to20 khz"

    Yup! I'd like to add that "Human" is capable of things which we don't know properly, which the Human race is still exploring... Science alone is not able to answer the mysteries of Universe.


    Thanks for taking interest Tabassum
