The Municipal House (in Czech, Obecní dům) is a major civic landmark and concert hall in Prague, and an important building in architectural and political history in the Czech Republic. It stands on the Náměstí Republiky.

Around 1900, the building was commissioned by the city on an odd-shaped lot and the subject of one architectural competition, then another, both unsatisfactory. The job was then simply given to architects Osvald Polívka and Antonín Balšánek, who served as much as artistic coordinators as designers. Construction started in 1905 and it opened in 1912.

The Art Nouveau structure is an artifact of the Czech nationalism of the time and carries a wealth of ornament by some of the leading Czech artists of its day. The main facade features a large ceramic half-dome mosaic above the entry, Homage to Prague, by Karel Špillar. On either side are allegorical sculpture groups representing The Degradation of the People and The Resurrection of the People by Ladislav Šaloun, while the remainder of the rich decoration was done by Josef Mařatka, František Úprka and others, with light stands designed by Karel Novák. Inside there are murals by the famous Alfons Mucha, Jan Preisler and Max Švabinský and others, all of this on nationalist themes.

The main space within the Municipal House is the concert space, Smetana Hall, named in honor of Bedřich Smetana. On October 28, 1918, Smetana Hall was the scene of the proclamation of the independent state of Czechoslovakia.

Muddat Se Aisa

Hi friend’s,

this is just poem or shayari.

Buhat Muddat Se Aisa Hai, K Tum Khamosh Rehtay Ho,…

Koi Gehra Hai Ghum Shayad, Jisay Chup Chap Sehtay Ho,

Yunhi Chaltay Hue Tanha, Koi Ghamgeen Se Naghma,

Tum Aksar Gungunatay Ho, Doran-e-Guftago Yunhi,

Milein Nazron Se Jab Nazren, Toh Baatein Bhool Jatay Ho,

Kisi Gum Sum Si Halat Mein, Ya Phir Barish K Mousam Mein,

Faqat Itna Hi Kehtay Ho, Udasi Bewaja Si Hai,

Buhat Bojhal Tabiyat Hai, Bhala Sach Kyun Nahi Kehtay,

Mujhe Tum Yaad Kartay Hooo…! “DHANANJAY”

Itni muddat baad mile ho! Kin sochon main gum rehte ho?

Itne khayef kyon rehte ho? Her aahat se darr jaate ho

Taiz hawa ne mujh se poocha Rait pe kya likhte rehte ho?

Kaash koi humse bhi pooche Raat gaye tuk kyon jaage ho?

Main darya se bhi darta hoon Tum darya se bhi gehre ho!

Koun si baat hai tum main aisi Itne ache kyon lagte ho?

Peeche mur ker kyon dekha tha Patthar ban ker kya takte ho?

Jaao jeet ka jashan manaao! Main jhoota hoon, tum suche ho

Apne sheher ke sub logon se Meri khatir kyon uljhe ho?

kehne ko rehte ho dil main! Phir bhi kitne door khare ho

Raat humain kuch yaad nahin tha Raat bohot hi yaad aaye ho

Humse na poocho hijr ke qisse Apni kaho ab tum kaise ho?

“DHANANJAY” tum badnaam bohot ho Jaise ho, phir bhi ache ho

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) is a National Health Service academic teaching hospital located on the Norwich Research Park off the A11 road and the Watton Road (B1108) on the southern outskirts of Norwich, England.

The university hospital replaced the former Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, which was founded in 1771, and the West Norwich Hospital. The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital was built under the Private Finance Initiative (PFI), and opened in late 2001: it has 987 acute beds and offers a wide range of NHS acute health services plus private patient facilities. It is one of the largest hospitals in the United Kingdom in terms of in-patient capacity. The hospital is part of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The former West Norwich buildings continue in use as the Norwich Community hospital and some NNUH services are still operated from this site.

NNUH was the first new NHS teaching hospital built in England for more than 30 years and the hospital trust is a joint venture partner in the University of East Anglia School of Medicine, Health Policy and Practice.[1] The hospital is a teaching centre for nurses (adult and children's), midwives, doctors, therapists and operating department practitioners.


On January 11, 1998, Prime Minister Tony Blair announced the go-ahead for the construction of a £214 million, 809 bed, new hospital in a broadcast from Tokyo on the BBC's Breakfast with Frost show. [2] Site work started the following day (January 12, 1998). The project was the first large PFI hospital scheme in the NHS. In July 2000 approval was given to extend the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with a second phase that included an additional 144 beds and took the project cost to £229 million. The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust pays the private PFI Octagon consortium in the region of £41 million a year [3]. In 2004, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants assessed the actual costs at £1.16 billion, or around five times the initial cost of £229 million.

Project team:[4]

The hospital was completed in August 2001, five months ahead of schedule, and on budget[4]. The hospital won the Building Better Healthcare Award [5] for Best Designed Hospital in September 2002. The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital was also highly commended in the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award in 2002 [6].


The controversial Private Finance Initiative was first introduced to the public sector under the Conservative government of John Major and the contract for NNUH, one of the first PFI hospitals, was signed in 1996. The level of subsequent potential risks and costs borne by the public sector was thought by some critics of the deal to be unacceptably high. In 2006 Edward Leigh, Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) and chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, appropriated a famous Edward Heath quote (originally used with reference to Tiny Rowland of Lonrho International[7]) to describe the Department of Health's approach to a refinancing deal for the NNUH PFI:

"It is hard to escape the conclusion that the public sector staff managing the project were not up to the rough and tumble of negotiating refinancing proposals with the private sector ... The unacceptable face of capitalism."[8]

The hospital neighbours the constituency of South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon, also a member of the Public Accounts Committee. Mr. Bacon wrote about the financing of the hospital on his website; "The Department of Health would not allow the hospital to include a refinancing clause in the original contract. This meant the hospital had no right to receive any proceeds from the refinancing at all, let alone the 29% share it eventually secured. And that right was only obtained by taking on huge extra potential liabilities."[9]

In 2006/07, the trust projected a savings target of £14.8 million but recorded a surplus of £867,000 by the end of the same financial year.[10]. In 2007, the Audit Commission's "Review of the NHS financial year 2006/07" reported that the trust was delivering the best financial management of any NHS Trust in the country[11]

In 2006, the Public Accounts Committee released report into the PFI refinancing conducted by the private Octagon Healthcare consortium involved in building the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital of "lining investors' pockets" and putting the trust at increased financial risk. The report noted that the consortium was receiving an over £80 million pound windfall from the deal, and the National Audit Office said that the windfall was the third it had uncovered after complaints from MPs and the public[12].

Kaash Aa Jaye Vo

HI Friend’s, this is just poem or shayari….

Kaash Aa Jaye Vo Mujhy Jaan Se Guzarty Dekhy
Us Ki Khawahish Thi Kabhi Mujh Ko Bikharty Dekhy

Vo Saleeqy Se Hua Hum Se Gurezan Warna
Log To Saaf Mohabat Se Mukarty Dekhy

Waqat Hota Hai Her Ek Zakham Ka Marham “DHANANJAY”
Phir Bhi Kuch Zakham Thy Asy Jo Na Bharty Dekhy……!!

Bicharty Waqat Se Ab Tak Main Youn Nhi Roya
Vo Keh Gaya Tha,Yehi Waqat Imtehan Ka Hai

Ye Or Bat, K Adalat Hai Be-Khabar Warna
Tamam Sheher Main Charcha Mere Beyan Ka Hai

Asar Dikha Na Saka Us K Dil Main Ashk Mera
Ye Teer Bhi Kisi Tooti Hoi Kaman Ka Hai

Bichar Bhi Jaye Magar Mujh Se Be-Khabar bhi Rahy
Ye Hosla Hi Kahan Mere Bad-Guman Ka Hai

Qafas To Khair Muqadar Main Tha Magar “DHANANJAY”
Hawa Main Shor Abhi Tak Meri Uran Ka Hai…….!!

Aadawtain kab tak bharhah k rakhay ga.
ye chahtain kab tak chopa k rakhay ga .

Main ghair hon ye kab tak bataay ga khud ko .
Tu Dil ko kab tak samja k rakhay ga.

Mana Aana perasat hai tu bhi jlay ga umer sari
Atish-e-Ishaq se khud ko kab tak bacha k rakhay ga .

Meri nazroon ko na sahi lafzoon ko to samjta ho ga.
Meri chahatoon ko tu kab taak dubaa k rakhay ga.

Ye Aana bhi Ghazab ki chiz hai jala diti hai sab “DHANANJAY”
Ye payyar Ishaq mohabat tera sab kuch jala k rakay ga

Apne ehsas kay sab rang uttar janay do
Meri umeed meray khawab bikhar janay do…
Apne angan main charaghon ko jalao na abi,
Meray angan main siya raat utar janay do…

Bari mushkil se mila hai muje mere ghar ka pata
Rassto ab na uljhao muje gher janay do…
Jin kay aane ka bohat shor phaila tha her soo,
Inhi lamhon ko chup chap guzar janay do…
Meri berbadi ka ilzam na aye kahin tum per “DHANANJAY”
Meray halat ko khuch or bigar janay do.

Agar Kaho To Haal Dil Ka Sunaaon Tumko
Tamam Umar Samne Bithaaon Tumko
>Mere Zakhmon Ka Haal Poocho Ager Jaan-e-Jaan
To Ek Ek Zakhm Ki Tafseel Sunaaon Tumko
>Mout Ki Neend Se B Gehri Ek Neend Hoti Hai
Tere Baazuon Ka Ho Takya To Dikhaaon Tumko
>Yehi DUA Hai K Wo Waqt Aaye Ek Baar Phir
Tum Jo Rootho To Hath Jor Kr Manaaon Tumko
>Hr Shakhs Main Mujhe Ek Raqeeb Nazar Aata Hai “DHANANJAY”
Bol Ae Mere ‘HUM NAWA’ Kis Kis Ki Nazar Se Bachaaon Tum ko.
