Paani aur tamannaaoN kee taaseer ek hai

Film : Jodha Akbar
Year of release : 2008
Spoken by : Sharifuddin Hussain (Nikitin Dheer)
Spoken to : Sujamal (Sonu Sood)

When Sujamal is not crowned as the King of Aamer (though rightfully he should have), he rebels and leaves his erstwhile kingdom. He starts lobbying with neighbouring kings for his right. One such king is Sharifuddin. He agrees to help Sujamal, but asks him point blank as to what he can expect in return. Sujamal agrees to do anything for him. Sharifuddin says he should help him to attack Agra (i.e. Akbar himself). Sujamal is surprised, since Sharifuddin is married to Akbar's sister. Sharifuddin responds with this flowery dialogue
"jaante hain Sujamal, paani aur tamannaaoN kee taaseer ek hai. Aage baDhte jaanaa. Ab hame mukammal hindustaan chaahiye"
"जानते हैं सुजामल, पानी और तमन्नाओं की तासीर एक है. आगे बढ़ते जाना. अब हमे मुकम्मल हिन्दुस्तान चाहिये"
This is so true. I don't know about 'paanii', but 'tamannaa' keeps on growing. I guess that is the key to all progress in this world. And will be the key to all destruction too!
