Man born as a Cry

Man born as a Cry
Originally uploaded by firozeshakirphotographerno1 when he is born
his new world
drowned in a cry
as he grows
his tears will dry
his life a see saw
sometimes low
sometimes high
his freckled fate
he will defy
marry have children
relearn to cry
every moment
hidden in the folds of a sigh
when his last time comes
he will say goodbye
time to leave time to die
those around the grave
black clothes
widows weed
all unlearning to cry
this is one path
they too will cross
before they pass by
a wind a whisper
that wont say why
you came you lived
you saw you died
shy bashful your body
hidden in the folds of the earth
with you
you take your
vanity and your pride
humility as your tombstone
by your new bedsite

Originally uploaded by firozeshakirphotographerno1 we cut our selves
we scourge ourselves
to remind
the Islamic World
what they forgot
yes blood
on the sands of Karbala
where a battle for truth was fought
the Holy Prophets blood stream
dismembered bodies that dot
decapitated heads on spears
that was not their lot
all part of a conspiracy
a yazidi plot
impotency eunuched silence
on Islamic history a black spot
may the enemies the killers of Hussain
in the fires of hell yell and rot
lanat on all of them
in a gunshot
ya hussain
ya hussain
forgive them not

This man had lost everything in the floods I was told at has hometown, he was a daily labourer, all was lost with just an ounce of faith left he had come to the Holy Shrines
to ask for somemore...god who was locked within a trembling door.

Rajkot woman stages semi-nude protest against dowry demand

RAJKOT: Conservative Rajkot went into convulsions on Wednesday when alleged mental and physical abuse by her husband's family drove a 22-year-old woman to strip to her underwear and walk through the city in protest.

Pooja Chauhan said she had taken to this unique protest after being constantly harassed for not bringing dowry and bearing a girl-child.

The effect was immediate. The police arrested her husband Pratapsinh Chauhan, parents-in-law and neighbours Veji Bharwad and Vinu Dalit on Wednesday, after she threatened to scale up her protest and march nude to the police commissioner's office if she did not get justice.

"The arrests were made on the basis of Pooja Chauhan's complaint. We are also planning to take action against Pooja for indecent behaviour in a publi…

The Story of Man!

The Story of Man!
Originally uploaded by firozeshakirphotographerno1 If there was a god
he would not do this to man
if god was human and man was man
man born of woman and of man
man enslaved to coins and to man
life a wheel barrow carrying the corpse of man
would it have been better if he was culled this man
when he was born defective demeaning man
begging for a living from man to man
not born an animal cannibal man
highly explosive inflammable man
a hijda a eunuch transgendered man
a coward a fighter a dream defying man
a nightmare that does not get over
the unending story of inhuman man
