[development] hook_menu vs path alias Drupal 7

I haven't looked at that code in D7 yet, but based on D6, I am going to guess 
that it hasn't changed. The URL alias is resolved to the underlying "node/1234" 
before the menu is looked at. Since the menu specifies "article/hello," it does 
NOT match "node/1234" and therefore executes the standard "node/%nid" path 
instead. If you change the menu path to "node/1234," I bet it will do what you

Subject: [development] hook_menu vs path alias Drupal 7

Hi All,

I am developing a site in Drupal 7. I have a node with alias /article/hello
I also have a hook_menu with "/article/hello" path registered in my module.
When i access the path in browser http://localhost/article/hello it shows the 
node instead of calling "my_custom_function".

$items['article/hello'] = array(
    'title' => 'Hello World', 
    'description' => 'Hello world', 
    'page callback' => 'my_custom_function', 
    'access arguments' => array('access content'), 
    'type' => MENU_CALLBACK,

I want 'my_custom_function' to get called.
Appreciate your help.
