In free time, although I don't have much these day, I love to go out with friends and have gossip over a cup of tea or coffee at an outdoor place. I try to watch a Hollywood movie on weekend and I am a great fan of Clint Eastwood, needless to say that both as an actor and as a director. He played many versatile roles starting as a bounty killer in Sergio Leone's "Man with No Name" trilogy. The three movies in this series are in the set of my ever favorite western style movies. There are few dialogues in these movies but the story theme, picturization and background music make them in them in the top 100 best movies of all time. Below you can enjoy the masterpiece theme composed by Ennio Morricone from the first movie in this trilogy "A Fistfull of Dollars". He also played the legendry role of Harry Callahan, a police inspector, in the five Dirty Harry movies. Harry Callahan with his .44 Magnum made these movies great unforgettable hits. Many of the Callahan dialogues are famous as quotes and my favorite one is "Go ahead, make my day". Clint also played comedy roles for instance Every Which Way But Loose and Any Which Way You Can as well as romantic roles like The Bridges of Madison County which is awesome love story. Last but not least Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby two of the ever best movies.

Music is said to be the "Food of the Soul" and it is very true. I belong to Pakistan (sub-continent), a land of all kind of music from traditional classical, folk, Ghazal, regional and Sufi mystic Qawwali to modern pop and rock n' roll. Music is an important component in many social traditions in Pakistan including special music played on weddings (there are special wedding songs too), Sufi music can be heard on shrines and in religious gatherings and folk music is played in many regional events and festivals.
I like Sufi music a lot and I am great great fan of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, a qawwali maestro who possessed a heavenly voice and he gave a new dimension to traditional Qawwali with western pop. Khan worked with world renowned Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam and Michael Brook a produced magical sound tracks. Abida Parveen and Pathany Khan along with many others are famous for Sufi music. Below you can enjoy some of my favorite tracks of Khan.
