Daily Prompt #8: Say Your Name


Daily Prompt: Say Your Name.

Hi Again. Today i am going to share a small poem from the famous epic romantic movie of Bollywood “Veer Zaara”

For those of you who haven’t seen this movie … here is the link for the synopsis of the movie.

I am gonna share the poem here which the Hero (Shah Rukh Khan) says in the court room when he shall be released freely to India with full respect.

The name of the Poem has a very strong significance to the name “Qaidi 786” which means “Prisoner Number 786”.

Significance of the Name:

The number 786 in Arabic means “in the name of Allah, the compassionate, the merciful”. As the hero in the movie is imprisoned in a Pakistani Jail the female lawyer who fights for him stresses the significance of the holy number to the Jailor resisting their oppression towards the man who has been in Jail for no reason since 22 Years. She says “He is very special amongst all prisoners. Have you ever thought why out of all the thousands of Prisoners he has been given the Number of Allah 786… Its because Allah, the merciful is with him… I shall see to it that nobody oppresses him anymore”

Finally when the Verdict will be announced in the court room, the hero, Veer Pratap Singh says he wants to share something… and he recites this poem…which describes the muted feelings which he held till that date in his heart…

The meaning of the poem as you could see in the Subtitles must have been already very clear to you guys.

But still i wanna add few of my opinions to it.

We all think what’s in a name? but, its the only thing that gives a person a unique identity of his own… So be proud of your names …. be proud of yourself…. because not everyone lives with a unique sweet name like you… Many people are still thriving for an identity of their own in this huge world.

Thanks for reading my post.

Lots of love to all,

ARK
