Encounter with Tahir Shah!

The first encounter I had with him(it) was on this very space when a learned fellow blogger and a great friend – Geetashree passed on a popular Tahir Shah video link to me as a comment on one of my posts about my long hair and the perceptions people develop because of their length. And only recently I was being confirmed by ย another close blogger friend Sfurti- The Haiku Princessย that it was her who had shared the link and also the learned blogger friend Geetashree, in her comments, did mention she did not recall posting such video ( so nice of her ) but I thought she may have forgotten .. Poor me , I realize instead I am suffering from Short Term Memory Loss ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Happily I clicked the video to listen to the song – The track Being Eye to Eye – The music was catchy , the words were astonishing and senseless and the singer ย with his appearance and on-screen gestures kept me stare at the video with a” question mark” ย expression . The very first thought was – What is that ?? (No,not the song but the human like thing which was there in the video.) I was taken aback . Little did I know he is the ‘new kid on the celeb block’ from our loving neighborhood Pakistan. Although the music was catchy but the singer had scared me so much with his peculiarly awkward appearance , deadly dancing skills , meaningless lyrics , desi pronunciation of English words(mind it -its an English song from Tahir Shah) ย that I preferred not to know him anymore.

Later , after few weeks , another co-blogger with inspiring wit – Purba Ray mentioned a name Tahir Shah in one of her humour-packed hilarious post and that compelled me to google the name… And guess what ? The peculiar thing reappeared. It was there in my subconscious mind , I suppose , in the list of lifetime shockers. ย And then that was it. I heard that song yet again – Eye to Eye by Tahir Shah on YouTube and then saw many other videos on and about him(it) one of which included his interviews.

I was shocked to believe what I was listening to – Inzi Bhai ( cricketer Inzamam Ul Haq from Pakistan) could speak English lot better and could have been hired before the interview to allow the viewers make some sense. I felt inspired suddenly. This thing ( Tahir Shah and not his video ๐Ÿ˜€ ) it was speaking so confidently and only and precisely ‘his’ God knew and him what he was trying to convey. I learnt.Confidence sells. Thanks to that thing ( Tahir Shah and not his video-mind it) I have started believing myself ย and my English with limited vocabulary. ย ๐Ÿ™‚ This was just a tribute to the confidence that Tahir Shah boosted in me . Thank you Tahir !

Here I am sharing the links of theย ย interview of Tahir Shah which has boosted confidence in me . A must watch both( the video and the interview) , in case , you do not know what is Tahir Shah. If any of you understood what it (Tahir Shah) said in the interview , do leave me the meaning in the comment box.

Our neighbors may surely put him(it) on LoC if their army realizes the potential of it-(Tahir Shah and his English).

    Lol Tahir Shah has sung the englisg one very bad…I know ! The gestures were funny too but you know In real he is quite a sophisticated man and the urdu version of this song is quite sensible ! The real fame he got was because of the english version though ๐Ÿ˜‰ People made fun of him but made saw him too and his video was the most popular on youtube some days back…. You know people say when God gives, He gives a lot !! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      He looked like decent man in his interview Xx .. had he been himself he would have been lot more appreciated .. minus the fame he got because of his awkward gestures and uselessly speaking English .. I fail to understand ..what is the fascination so deadly about this language ? The Urdu version I could not listen to properly .. the lyrics
      shocking was the interview ..if you may have heard that .. my point is why speak English without knowing language or for that matter any language ?
      Why growing long hair and keep it in a way which looks feminish ( although thats a personal choice ) Even I have long hair .. but I know how to look manly in them ..
      Anyways .. the best part of him was . whatever he is .. he is very confident !!! Self Confidence is most precious !!

      1. White Pearl

        Yes Yes This is my point ! You know he is free to do whatever he likes but Just see the thing , He sung very good in Urdu but He won’t be that popular if he wouldn’t have sung it in English ! He won’t have even thought of it before ! This is called luck I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. My Say

          true Xx ๐Ÿ™‚ luck is right decision at the right time .. I found him to be otherwise a humble man .. the only thing that shocked me was the interview he gave in English ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. aamjunta

    Just lovely – LOL. Jai ho Tahir Singh, Tusi Great Ho ๐Ÿ™‚ All the name and fame is becoming possible only because of Internet – border-less and viral some time.

    Nice post friend.

    Spare me My Say! Did I commit that crime of including his video in one of your posts ? I don’t remember but glad that it did pave the way to a rise in your confidence. BTW with every post your humility is also on the rise. Limited vocab? Poor English? Long hair? Well I can understand that…but somehow I expected you to sheer the mane off your well shaped head after watching ‘That Thing Tahir”! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Inserting another video. A song which I immensely enjoy and hope you will too… one for this celebratory mood and post…

    Funny. Seems Tahir Shah’s ruling the roost these days. He keeps popping up in discussions in one of the communities I regularly check on Orkut. And here I see a whole post dedicated to him.
