Our nation was constructed on the sweat, blood, and tears of an excellent many individuals. From our Founding Father Quaid-e-Azam and his comrades to patriotic women and men who fought day by day for independence. Though there are a large number of unsung heroes who silently labored behind the scenes to carry us a few of the most well-known features of our tradition and historical past, we solely know a handful of the names of those that fought to make Pakistan a actuality.
The teachings of Historical past can solely influence us if we honor those that helped construct Pakistan. And there’s no higher solution to obtain this than to study their tales, and to cross that data on to future generations. By inspecting their achievements and taking inspiration from their lives, we will make sure that their legacies will dwell on for years to return. Ahmed Ghulamali Chagla, composer of the Pakistani Nationwide Anthem is one such Unsung Hero.
On Pakistan’s 75th Anniversary, Zong sought to amend that by paying homage to 1 such unsung hero: Ahmed Ghulam Ali Chagla, by its Independence Day brief movie titled ‘Notes of Chagla’. Whereas most of us know it’s Hafeez Jalandhari who penned the lyrics to our nationwide anthem, Pak Sar Zameen, few are conscious that it was A.G. Chagla who composed it in 1949, solely a yr after being appointed to the Nationwide Anthem Committee.
Zong’s tribute movie titled ‘The Notes of Chagla,’ by the eyes of its protagonist Sami (Shehryar Munawar), tells a heartwarming story of inspiration and nationwide delight. Because the movie opens, we see Sami, a younger school pupil, grappling with a musical thesis he is because of current quickly. Seeing her son wrestle, Sami’s mom (performed by the bubbling Simi Raheal) advises him to give up looking for inspiration from exterior sources and as a substitute discover the wealthy musical historical past of Pakistan. Throughout his exploration, Sami discovers A.G. Chagla and his accomplishments. Taking inspiration from Chagla’s life, he gathers a various array of native artists to carry out a singular rendition of the nationwide anthem, celebrating the unsung hero and bringing everybody nearer collectively by way of the facility of the digital world
By the brief movie, the digital connectivity community powerfully emphasizes the importance of the Nationwide Anthem and the connection the digital world affords us. Our Anthem represents the center of our Nation, and her folks; it’s a rallying cry, asserting to the world who we Pakistanis are and what we stand for. Thanks Zong for shedding mild on part of forgotten historical past by placing a highlight on this unbelievable unsung hero, by such a transferring narrative.
