My Trip(21st Nov 2009) to Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’s Dargah in Ajmer, Rajasthan, INDIA

Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’s Dargah

Sultan-ul-Hind, Hazrat Shaikh Khwaja Syed Muhammad Mu’īnuddīn Chishtī (Ajmeri) (Persian/Urdu: خواجہ سیّد محمد معین الدین چشتی اجمیری ) was born in 1141 and died in 1230 CE. Also known as Gharīb Nawāz (غریب نواز), or ‘Benefactor of the Poor’, he is the most famous Sufi saint of the Chishtī Order ofSouth Asia. He introduced and established the order in South Asia. The initial spiritual chain or silsila of the Chishti order in India, comprising Mu’īnuddīn Chishtī, Bakhtiyar KakiBaba Farid and Nizamuddin Auliya (each successive person being the disciple of the previous one), represents the initial great Sufi saints of Indian history.[1]

He was born in 536 A.H./1141 CE, in Sijistān, in Persian Khorasan, modern Iran[2]. He is also known as Sultān-e-Hind (The Sultan of India). He is a descendant of Muhammad through Ja‘far aṣ-Ṣādiq.

I love Sachin’s intensity: Aamir Khan




What is amazing about Sachin is that for 20 years he has been able to maintain a level. There has been no dip in his abilities, his application or his passion for
the game. I would say very few people could last this long. I’ve played cricket and believe me, you can’t get out of bed for one week after one gruelling match.
I saw him for the first time in 1988 when I was shooting at the Brabourne Stadium and he wasn’t playing for the Indian team yet. The team was practising at the nets and I was chatting with Kapil Dev, Dilip Vengsarkar and a few others. At a distance I could see this kid batting. I was surprised to see that he was middling the ball; he looked so small, and so young. I was zapped. I wondered who this little boy was, who was being allowed to practise at the nets with the Indian cricket team. So I asked Kapil and Vengsarkar, “Who’s he? How come I don’t know?” They told me he was a new guy called Sachin Tendulkar, who was being seriously considered for the Indian team. So I had the good fortune of seeing Sachin play even before he walked into the team.


The first time I met him was in 1990 when he came to the sets of Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna. I don’t know how many people will recall this but it was Sachin who gave the clap for the mahurat shot at Mehboob Studios in Bandra. We met briefly and over the years we have been meeting off and on. We have been to each other’s homes.

I have shown him all my movies, even Andaz Apna Apna which took three years to make. He came along with members of the Mumbai Ranji team to Bandra’s Gem theatre in the G-7 complex where I had organised a preview for them.

Whenever we meet, we talked about both cricket and films. He saw Ghajini at the test screening in my Khar office. He saw Taare Zameen Par also at the test screening. We stay in touch through SMS and when he plays really well, I promptly send him a text congratulating him — like when he smashed 175 in Hyderabad.

What’s so attractive about Sachin’s game is the joy and passion with which he approaches the game. There is a lot of intensity in his game whether he is batting, bowling or fielding. For me, everything he does is perfect. I like to watch him open the innings in the ODIs. It gives me a high.

10 of the World’s Most Bizarre Laws

10 of the World’s

Most Bizarre Laws

Tibetan monks need permission to reincarnate

In one of history’s most absurd acts of totalitarianism, China bannedBuddhist monks

in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission. According to a statement

issued by the State Administration for Religious Affairs in 2007, the law, which strictly

stipulates the procedures by which one is to reincarnate, is “an important move to

institutionalize management of reincarnation.” (Link)

Yellow margarine is illegal in Missouri, US.

Did you know that if you buy yellow margarine in Missouri you’re committing a crime?

A 19th century state law banned the sale of yellowmargarine, though “it’s been years

since any violator was ordered to spread them.” Most of Missouri’s restrictions on

imitation butter date to 1895, and they were last amended in 1939. Although the state

no longer enforces them, the penalties could still make dealers in contraband dairy

product toast: up to a month in jail and a $100 fine for first-time offenders and six

months in jail and a $500 fine for repeat offenders.

Enforcement of the law falls to the state Agriculture Department, and officials there

didn’t know when someone was last prosecuted under it. Case records from the late

19th and early

20th century show that Missouri courts upheld the constitutionality of the restrictions

in several appeals.Agriculture Department spokeswoman Misti Preston said it’s likely

that the Legislature restricted margarine and other imitation butter products

to protect Missouri’s dairy industry, which was a key business for the state in the

early 20th century. (LinkPhoto)

It’s illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament in England

The reason people are banned from dying in parliament is that it is a Royal palace.

Anyone who dies there is technically entitled to a state funeral. So if they see you

looking a bit sick they carry you out quickly. However, a spokesman for the House

of Commons said: “The people who know about these things here say there is no basis

for such a law, not to say it does not exist somewhere in writing.” (Link)

Brazilian men allowed to return non-virgin brides

You could expect it in a Muslim country, but actually in Brazil, the country famous

for its hot carnivals, from 1916 until 2002, men were able to obtain an annulment up

to ten days after the wedding if they discovered that their wife was not a virgin before

marriage. I bet Brazillian men probably expected that these fine ladies stamped in Rio’s

postcard were all virgins. (By the way, a recently law in Brazil has for

bidden Brazilian postcards featuring women in bikini, shame on them) . (Link)

It’s illegal to sell sex toys in the state of Alabama

In Alabama, the justice is not only blind but sexually frustrated. Alabama’s

anti-obscenity law, enacted in 1998, bans the distribution of “any device

designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human

genital organs for anything of pecuniary value.” The law does not ban the

possession of sex toys; residents may legally purchase sex toys out of state

for use in Alabama. Be aware, five minutes of pleasure can cost you a lot,

since the law has strong penalties: Up to a year in jail and a $10,000 fine

for a first offense. A second offense carries a prison sentence of one to 10 years.(Link)

In the Netherlands, you are allowed to smoke cannabis

but not tobacco (in public places)

The bizarre Dutch policy of allowing smokers to puff away on pure cannabis

but not tobacco has perplexed police in the Netherlands, who have fined a man

for mixing the two substances. Zero tolerance to tobacco smoking in Dutch

cafes and restaurants is being exercised since a ban came into force in 2008.

The man was not fined for smoking a cannabis joint but for smoking. You

can smoke cannabis but not tobacco in coffee shops. The unnamed

27-year-old man was caught lighting a hand rolled cannabis joint during a

routine police check, and fined because officers found tobacco mixed with

the soft drug. (Link)

Carpooling is not allowed if you live in Canada

PickupPal is a Google Maps-based networking site, with about 15,000 registered

users in Ontario, that helps people find carpool buddies. Sounds pretty useful,

right? Only problem is… most of the carpooling going on at PickupPal is illegal.

You see, in Ontario it is illegal to carpool or rideshare with someone unless you

meet ALL of the following criteria:

– You can only travel from home to work (no rides to schools, hospitals, daycare, etc.)
– You cannot cross municipal boundaries (nor driving to the adjacent municipality

for a GO station, TTC subway, airport, etc.)
– You must ride with the same driver each day (no exceptions, sorry).
– You must pay the driver weekly only (bring a calculator).
Ergo, if you arrange to have your boyfriend pick up your cousin Louis at the

airport — you have broken the law. If you travel with a friend and give her $5

for gas money — you have broken the law.

Here’s an excerpt of the current law, off the “Save PickupPal” blog: “No person

shall arrange or offer to arrange transportation of passengers by means of a

public vehicle operated by another person unless that other person is the

holder of an operating licence authorizing that other person to perform the


NOTE: some readers wrote to us to tell that this is not accuratte. u are totally

allowed to carpool, those criteria must be met ONLY when you want to drive

in the Carpool Lane on major highways, such as the Don Valley Parkway in

southern Ontario. If you do not meet the criteria you mentioned, you cannot

drive in the designated carpooling lanes. You are allowed to carpool anywhere

anytime. (thanks Officer Ryan and Katie!) (Link)

The head of any dead whale found on the British coast

automatically becomes the property of the King, and the tail

of the Queen

The Royal Prerogative 1324 decrees that any whale or sturgeon found on

the British coast belongs to the monarch. The law is very much still in place,

as fisherman Robert Davies found out in 2004 when he was investigated by

police in Plymouth. He had faxed the Royal Household to tell them he had

caught a sturgeon, and was told to keep it, but did not realize it was still

illegal to try and sell it. (Link 1Link 2)

In Finland, traffic fines are calculated as a percentage of

the offender’s income

In Finland, traffic fines are calculated as a percentage of the offender’s

most-recently-reported income. In January 2002, Anssi Vanjoki, 44,

a director of the Finnish telecommunications giant, Nokia, received

what is believed to be the most expensive speeding ticket ever

— $12.5 million — for driving his Harley at 75 km/h (47 mph) in a

50km/h (31 mph) zone. Mr Vanjoki appealed the fine because his

reported income dropped significantly about five days after the

incident; because of the new data, the fine was dropped to $103,600,

still the most expensive speeding fine in history. (Link 1Link 2)

In Swaziland, teenager girls were forbidden to have sex

for 5 years to prevent AIDS

On June 28, 2002, King Mswati III of Swaziland, in an attempt to protect his
people from the spread of AIDS and return them to more traditional values,
passed a number of edicts. Young women were to put off sex for 5 years and
to wear traditional chastity tassels as an outward display of their sexualstatus.
According to Swazi tradition girls under 18 should wear blue and yellow tassels
to discourage sexual advances, while older women who are still virgins should
wear red and black tassels. Also, women were warned that any woman wearing
pants could face the possible punishment of having the pants publicly torn off
by soldiers and torn to pieces.
In 2001, the king fined himself a cow for breaking the ban by marrying
again (a 17 year-old girl). (Link 1Link 2Photo)

President Obama sent a special message of thanks to veterans

Friend —

Today, on Veteran’s Day, my message to you is simple: Thank you. Thank you for your selfless service, for your valor, and your strength of purpose that make all of us proud to be Americans.

Today, Americans will pause amidst a great conversation about the future of our nation to take a moment and recognize your service to our democracy — a service that guarantees us all the liberty to engage freely in that conversation, no matter what our views may be.

We know that we owe you a debt which cannot be repaid. But we can and will fulfill our nation’s promise to stand by you and your loved ones. That is why we’ve worked hard for better care for our veterans, and why we provided the largest increase in Veterans Administration funding in history.

Today, we honor those Americans past and present who’ve served on battlefields from Lexington to Antietam, Normandy to Manila, Inchon to Khe Sanh, Ramadi to Kandahar. You have defended our freedom on land, and at sea, and in the air.

You reflect the diversity that makes this America. You share a patriotism beyond question. And you share the same unflinching courage, selfless compassion, and uncommon camaraderie that — when faced with the tragedy of a despicable and heartbreaking attack last Thursday — the soldiers and civilians of Ft. Hood humbly revealed to the world.

You and your loved ones are the patriotic men and women we honor today, Veterans Day. And you are the men and women we shall honor every day, in times of war and times of peace, so long as our nation endures.

Thank you.

President Barack Obama
