Desert Rose by Sting is also  featured by Aishwarya Rai in one of the videos.

Used to listen a lot to “The Police” during my Uni days.

Sting a schoolteacher used to be lead singer and bassist with the English rock band The Police before he went into solo career. Sting got his inspiration and his music was very much influenced by Jimi Hendrix and Cream. One of my all-time favorite is “Every Breath You Take”.

I want you guys to listen to Desert Rose and to me its so meaningful and here is the lyrics…

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall

    Islam is beautiful…

    Allah is the one true supreme being who created the Universe from nothing. He gives life, He causes death, He is Allah Knowing, All Seeing, Mighty, Powerful, the Decider of All Affairs, and is able to enforce His Will.

    Islam is not a new way of life, it is the same Faith that has been handed down to man from Allah (God-Almighty) through His Prophets. Islam is and always has been the perfect way for man to achieve all his goals both in this life and in the Hereafter.

    Encik Selva, Desert roses are rosettes of gypsum crystals with sand inclusions. They form when water evaporates under arid sandy conditions like at the edge of Sahara with its large salt lakes in Southern Tunisia. Sand grains are trapped in the gypsum crystals during their growth and give them the same colour as the sand.

    Anyway in the song Desert Rose Sting was refering to Prophet Mohammed Peace Be Upon Him having a blue rose during his vision , and perhaps to some association you may be refering the blue rose with a woman. Is it Encik selva?
