…………Finally, at the end of this happening month, I am cursively bound to pen down my waves. If I recall, I was happy in the beginning of this month because of reasons tied up all family, friends and colleagues. But, no such moment is as sad when you got to know in the middle of your happiness that legend of vision and one of your idols has been passed away. I was on official team building trip when have heard the RIP of Steve Jobs, after 4 days (Oct 9, 2011) of his death .
He was a man of vision and a perfect professional I look upon ………..
If I’ll start collecting words to write about him, certainly I will fail to describe that how he has reached to his fame-name … I admire him, his sayings and exclusively motivated towards my own passion.
Some of my favourite quotes from Steve Jobs which would I have inspired me time time and again ---
“Your time is limited , so don`t waste it living someone else’s life.”
“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me….Going to bed at night saying we have done something wonderful in a day ….that what matters to me.”
“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
It does not end here ….. On the way of returning back from the trip (Oct10, 2011), my heart got sobbed and lashes almost wet when read one sms …that we have lost one more legend of voice(Gazal-King)-
”JagjitSingh Ji”. An Imprint of him started very early in my life, I guess I was around 15 years old when have had first heard his wave of voice in …
”Baat Nikegi tou dur talak Jayegi, Log bebajah udasi ka sabab puchenge….” (The Unforgettable)
Since that day his voice owned a part of my soul. The beauty of words written by different authors was captured by his voice and pathos of love. I guess almost everyone would already know this that he lost his single child in an accident early in his life and what else ...He dedicated this Gazal to his son ….
“Chitthi na koi sandesh , Jaane wo kaun sa desh...... jahan tum chale gaye .” ….(Dushman)
Listen this one truly by heart, I can bet.. it would make you remember your loved ones.
Now, singing out with lyrics of my favourite Gazal by Jagjit Singh—
“Parakhana Mat Parakhne Me Koi Apna Nahi Rehta,
Kisi Bhi Aaeene Mein Deer Tak Chera Nahi Rehta,
Bade Logo So Milne Mein, Hamesha Fasala Rakhna,
Jaha Dariya Samandar Se Mila Dariya Nahi Rehta,
Tumhara Shaar To Bilkul Naye Andaaz Walahai,
Hamare Shaar Me Bhi Ab Koi Hamsa Nahi Rehta,
Mohabaat Ek Khusbu Hai Hamesha Saath Chalti Hai,
Koi Insaan Tanhai Me Bhi Tanha Nahi Rehta “
“Baazeecha-ae-atfaal hai duniyaa mere aage,
Hota hai shab-e-roz tamaashaa mere aage
Hotaa hai niha gard mein seharaa mere hote,
Ghisataa hai jabi Khaak pe dariyaa mere aage
Mat poochh ki kyaa haal hai meraa tere pichhe,
Tu dekh ke kyaa rang hai tera mere aage
Imaan mujhe roke hai jo khinche hai mujhe kufr,
Kaabaa mere piichhe hai kalisa mere aage
Go haath ko jumbish nahin aankhon mein to dam hai,
Rahane do abhi saagar-o-meena mere aage”
RIP Jagjit Singh Ji & Steve Jobs, the world will miss both of you legends
This is not the end, we have had celebrated an auspicious festival- Deepawali at the end, which made everyone happy . So, finally sadness converts in to happiness and I wish this will remain same in everyone’s life forever.
