Soaked myself in a concoction. A 20 minutes rendition of Amir Khusrau’s Zihale Maskeen by Late UNFAKS. In the verses the first line is in persian and the second line is in Brij bhaasha. (Source: http://sufipoetry.wordpress.com/2009/11/06/zehaal-e-miskeen-amir-khusro/)
In 20 minutes he has recited the Persian lines and then translated them – in Sufi and Qawalli style. This is GODliness, I tell you. One can see a white light when it ends.
Aah I am floating in clouds now.
There are several other versions of this masterpiece by Ghulam Ali Khan Sahab, Wadali Brothers, Abida PArveen, Sabari Brothers, Chaaya Ganguli but UNFAKS is my favourite.
I am still floating in clouds.
Witness the magic…
