Satyameva Jayate: Truth Stands Invincible

I saw the Amir Khan show promo – Satyameva Jayate, and thought about the word which is inscribed in our national emblem (Lion Capital of Asoka), in the base of our (India) national currency…. and in most of our hearts when we are young and in school.

The source of the two words is from Mundaka Upanishad which is a matra.  The matra goes like:
satyameva jayate nānṛtaṁ
satyena panthā vitato devayānaḥ |
yenākramantyṛṣayo hyāptakāmā
yatra tat satyasya paramaṁ nidhānam ||

Which means:
Truth alone triumphs; not falsehood.
Through truth the divine path is spread out by which
the sages whose desires have been completely fulfilled,
reach where that supreme treasure of Truth resides.

Now coming back to the show, which is said to be an issue based chat show. The unique thing Amir is doing (among many uniqueness), having the show in multiple channel and languages. Even DD1 is going to telecast it. The best part till now I enjoyed and made me shed a tear is the title song.

The song written by Prasoon Joshi, is a love song for a nation. If you think of your loved one, it will still has a lot of meaning. The song is up at YouTube, and I have tried to do an English translation below. And thank you Tanveer on helping me out with Urdu translation J

With our nation again at the crossroads in terms of corruption, I hope our honorable politician hear the song and understand the meaning. Alas, I don’t think so.

Hope you enjoy the song and translation. I don’t own rights to the song or lyrics, and just a fan of the lyrics, music, song and actor 🙂

Tere rang aisa chadh gaya
Koi aur rang na chadh sake
Tera naam seeney pe likha
Har koi aake padh sakeyHai junoon hai junoon hai
Tere ishq ka ye junoon hai
Rag rag mein ishq tera daudta
Yeh bawra sa khoon hai
Tune hi sikhaya sachai oo ka matlab
Tere paas aake jaana maine zindagi ka maksad
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
Sacha hai pyaar tera, satyamev jayate

Tere noor ke dastoor mein
Na ho salwatein na shikan rahe
Meri koshishein toh hai bas yaheen
Rahein khushbooein gulshan rahe
Teri zulf suljhaney chala
Terey aur paas aaney chala
Jahan koi sur na ho besura
Woh geet main ganey chala
Tere rang aisa chadh gaya
Tha nasha jo aur bhi badh gaya
Teri barishon ka karam hai ye
Main nikhar Gaya main sanwar gaya
Jaisa bhi hoon apna mujhey
Mujhey ye nahin hain bolna
Kabil tere main ban sakoo
Mujhey dwaar aisa kholna
Sanson ki iss raftaar ko
Dhadkan ke iss tyohaar ko
Har jeet ko har haar ko
Khud apney iss sansaar ko
Badloonga main tere liye
Mujhey khud ko bhi hai tatolna
Kahin hai kami to hai bolna
Khahin dag hain toh chupayein kyon
Hum sach se nazrein hatayein kyon
khud ko badalna hai agar
Badloonga main tere liye
Sholon pe chalna hai agar
Chal doonga main tere liye
Mere khoon kee har boond main
Sankalp ho tere pyaar ka
Kato mujhey to too bahe
Ho surkh rang har dharrrr ka

Your soul has grown over me in such a way
Like no other soul has ever grown over me
You name is written in my chest
So that the whole world can read itIt’s a passion, intense passion
It’s passion of your love and loyalty
Loyalty to you runs in my entire body
There is this new madness of the youth in me
You have shown me the meaning of truth
After coming close to you I have known my reason of existence
The truth will always win! The truth will always win
The love from you is honest, and the truth will win

For radiance of your traditions and beliefs
May there be no questions and doubt
My aim would be only to see
That peace and prosperity grows around our land
Only when I remove obstacles to your growth
And then only I can come closer for your acceptance for me
I want to make this a country where everyone’s voice is heard
This is the claim I can make out loud to the universe

Your soul has grown over me in such a way
What passion for you was there, has increased more
Its because of your blessing
I have grown, and shone more
You have accepted me with all my shortcoming
I will never forget that
I wish to improve myself to gain your respect
For that I need to find and open my own doors
The speed of my excitement
And the spirit of my heartbeat
Will take on every victory and setbacks in stride
I will take the world around me
And promise to change it for your benefit

I have to test and improve myself
If I have any shortcoming, shout it out to me
If there is negative point, why should I hide it
I will face the criticism and not hide from it
If I have to change myself
I will change so you can get stronger
If I have to sacrifice and walk on a difficult path
I will walk that path for your success
Every drop of my blood
Should have loyalty and love for you
Let obstacles come to me, and you move ahead
May all your pain be overcome with my integrity

Its not a win, its the way one’s win! Pune have to reach CSK standard… wait make its own SIVAJI Standard

Pune has won… Dada has won. But wait! Last time also Pune won the first two game sand then everything went down form there. But that was last year and a memory.

In these two games the team is wining, and has been led from the front by S.G aka Dada. In the last game i felt that the combinationwas not right and some tweak is needed. I had expected Tamim and Ryder to open…. ok Ryder and Dada looks ok for now. Ryder can be dangerous when he gets his confidence and DADA gave him overs to ball to get his game going. For Dada one knock of 40+ in quick time will get his guns firing again for the tournament. This will happen.

The turning point of the game was the 19th over in PWI innigs which wnet for 25 runs…. something crazy that over. If Pakistani was bowling that over, some section would say spot fixing…. who knows?

Another news… Nehra came back, it’s a weak link in field and batting, but is able to bowl to some length. This will be tested against teams like CSK. So this weak link has to be tackled. And if Pune has to make an impact in the IPL5, then they have reach CSK standard.  One of the strengths  coming out from Pune Warrior side is the bowling. They have variety and not all guns have been used till now.  Mr Ice Man has been a revalation, and hope the becomes colder with time 🙂

The road is still long ahead…. but it may the IPL of the undergods – Dada and The Wall, both out to prove a point. RR is also making its own sweet story by defeating and crushing KKR comphrensively. KKR still not getting in the Bangla lion, at their own peril. Well… hope they learn that and introduce him. It will give them some spine which their captain seems missing. If there are 2 more defeats… there will be infighting in their camps reminescent of IPL2, and the multiple captain theory.

Har team mein ek gunda chaiye… correct, but team mein Captain bhi chaiye. and my fellow scorpion was …. Pstttt…. was caught smoking in a public place  check this like: http://twitter.com/#!/kvpops/status/188985127668432897/photo/1 and the photo is   her. See how Mr Happy is may be trying to caution him that he is on TV. Public smoking is banned in India. May be for KKR management Stadium is personal home. Well if it was Eden garden then may be… but will someone take action. No need… SRK is god!

Till then…. SRK can only say… chalo paint karo!

And another observation, the CKS non owner our Mr Satyanas… was in TV for a moment, just a moment and the camera zoomed off like he had given instruction not to focus. I don’t know… I just speculate.

To Sum it up from a twitter account: No one can replace Dada even if he scores Zero in all 16 matches. Once a Gangulian always a Gangulian.

PWI Weakness: Complacency… got to tighten it…. Come on Warriors. Jai Maharashtra.

Dada – Showed why multiple captain theory of KKR Buchanan was stupid!!!!!

They said they were the underdogs….

They said he did not have chance….

All called for his retirement…

His home team did not pick him up!

Well they always said that…. but the Bengal Tiger showed his burning bright eyes what a CAPTAIN he is…. for PUNE WARRIORS.

Pune Warrior scoring a low 130 score, and it looked done and dusted. But Jadeja said if Mumbai is 24/3 like Pune, Ganguly will not let it go! And he was right.

Ganguly kept a slip on despite the low score and the second over Dinda gave a ball, which Raydu misjudged and it went to Karthik at first slip. Karthik did his best and took crucial wickets. The first one in the first over….

The field changes were great and worked out. Mumbai did fight back, but it was not enought. Steven Smith, Uthappa did good to bring some respect to Pune Warriors score…. AND Karthick gave a final impetus with a six and four which may have made a difference to the presure.

Now lets see how the players rally around Dada and Pune. This was Captain’s victory… how he called that the pitch would turn, how he picked up five spinners in his side and used four of them…. how he placed the field.

Those who played under him, those who watched him captain… knows that Sourav Ganguly aka Dada, will fight until the last breath. He has been a fighter and always will be. It is never about the money it’s about self-esteem! I hope SRK and other owners who did not pick him up last time understands that… think about IPL2 to remove him the theory of multiple captains came up. They said 20-20 did not need one captain. Question is….. how many time have you captained and played?????

Thank you Subroto Roy to have the courage to give the mantle to Dada. We the Dada followers will support your team no matter what. I do not know if we win or not. But I do know that Dada will make one last roar…. against the Non Believers!

Where was Shakib Al Hasan? Time to call Bob Biswas to the rescue?

M de Lange vs Shakib Al Hasan. The East Bengal Tigers, mauled the Indians, Sri lankans and almost the Pakitanis in the recently concluded Asia cup. Shakib Al Hasan should have been playing, but the KKR manament went for M de Lange the fast bowler, whose economy rate was more then 9.  He gave away 36 runs in 3 overs. The reason to pick him – well the same reason Buchanan wanted the multiple captains in IPL2, just to remove Dada. This is called the GSKA Syndrome. Shakib Al Hasan also appeals now in SRK style. So please pick him up in the next game. He will do well!

The match was poised evenly with KKR hitting those neat sixes. Without those lusty hiting it would have been a no score. Delhi looked organized in the chase and the promotion of Irfan Pathan was a good one. What impressed me was Finch, who kept the ball on the ground and rotated the strike.

The good news was that the stadium was at full capacity, which surprised me. And CM, Mamta Didi was there. May be she should allow SRK to paint the stadium blue also 🙂

Early days yet but IPL5 should give us a new champion and good stories. and SRK will say… Picture ABHI BAKI HAI!!! And will use the new secret weapn now. Nomoskor Ek Min!
