Earlier we had done a post on Javed Miandad’s memorable sixer off the very last ball of the match against India at Sharjah in 1986, which clinched the game for Pakistan. We had also included a video of that last over in the post.

During the discussion, a number of comments recalled how Javed Miandad was literally showered with money and gifts as a result of this feat, how Tauseef Ahmad (who was his last partner on the crease) got little or nothing and a policeman’s baton to boot, and also how an equally famous comic song on the incident was sung by Bushra Ansari.

Well, we did manage to find the song for you. Enjoy!

Bushra Ansari, of course, is one of the most versatile of PTV performers; remarkable both for her humourous and serious acting and a very good singer too. This may well be her single best remembered performance.It was done as part of Anwar Maqsood’s classic show Showtime and is a parody of singer Salma Agha’s famous song ‘humm jaisay kahaN tum ko qadardaan milaiN gay.’ Of course, in this paroday version, it turns into ‘Ik chikkay kay Javed to sou lakh milaiN gay.’

  1. • All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly.
    AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES

  2. Shah Murad says:

    “Give you an example of self-confidence. There was a riot down in Dallas, Texas one time at a World’s Fair. And the riot had been going on for some time and somebody sent for the Texas Rangers. And after a while, why, a big fellow in his sombrero and a gun on his hip came around to find out about the riot and they looked at him and they said, ‘But you’re just one Ranger!’ He said, ‘Well, there’s just one riot.’

    “Now, this sort of—this sort of cockiness and confidence is very far from discouraged. It adds up to what is known as altitude, which is another factor that sort of weaves its way around in one of these codes—altitude. It’s merely an expression of confidence. Your beingness is excellent—quite certain. You know what you’re doing. You’re doing what you’re doing quite positively. And you’d be amazed how many riots you could take control of this way.”

    — L. Ron Hubbard
