What a characters!! Can spend the whole day looking at your pictures, but unlike you, am not a poet and have to make a living!

Thank you Killiweb, I sit at my shop when there is no Activity I post these pictures, photo blogging is a passsion, to keep my mind occupied even when I am hit under the belt with forces from above..the poetry just happened .
If wife could ever have her wishes fulfilled there would be no internet ..
I have a connection at home so when I return from work I hit the Keys.These are all old pictures I have shot nothing new.
My Nikon D70 is at the repairers sinc last two months or more.Shooting negs on my F100 drives me bonkers.
I envy you Africa.. the feel of earth God and Godliness.

Sufism Peace and Terrorism

Sufism Peace and Terrorism
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 This is Faiyaz Ali Baba an exponent in the art of Sufi tongue cutting.
The Sufis are looked down upon by the Shias and also by the radicals, the puritans and Wahhabis.But living with them I realised what ever their beliefs , or their love for a composite religios thought , they dont cause the nation to bleed , through acts of misguided terrorism, they promote peace , unlike petro dollar supported Big Brother of Islam that promotes sectarian Hate , in the name of Allah ho Akbar .
Silence as Muslims go on a war path killing Muslims a rage that ends up with killing their own..the unborn child in his mothers foetus dies before he hears the Azan of Life.
But all this the somnolent Muslim world does not want to be reminded of, I think no God inculcates this kind of venomous bigotry, no God tells you to kill, but than Man has already killed God.. so what really remains to be killed beats me.
Sanctimoniously tring to change …

Tantric Photography ..Uncoiling the Serpent

Tantric Photography ..Uncoiling the Serpent
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 The Dhuni is the Holy Fire.Very similar to the one that you see in my Naga Sadhu pictures.The Dhuni of the Nagas is paying homage to Lord Shiva.Where as the Sufis pay homage to Ahle Bait aand Hazrat Ali.
Like the Nagas the Sufis are also martial artists and do not discriminate when the Nagas come to partake of their spirtuality and hospitality as Fire irrespective of whom you pay homage to is a universal life source.
I have got into a trouble when a dissident Bawa who did not like my picture taking delberately tripped me into the fire , I was wounded on my leg but I mannaged to save myself , accidentaly my feet touched the Holy Flour , it was hell to pay for this desecration..I was excommunicated for a year from this troupe by their Peer Sikandar Wali Shah Baba.It was after his death quite untimely last year that Handi the Bawa standing in black invited me to their Sandal at Makhdoum Shah Baba Mahi…

Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 Thank you Nonah .. this is part of their spiritualistic ritualism,, it appears creepy but it is a part of their ascetic tradtion very similar to the tantric naga sadhus.. mind over matter..I wish people can have your attitude appreciating pictorial qualities instead of abusing my parentage, for pictures they dont like, sending me hate mail, defecating their hatred on my pictures.. it saddens me at flickrs , this from people who have not even posted a single picture, who conceal their identity , to heckle bully and cause pain I think Flickr top dudes should see to this unending complain.. you dont like something move away..I have already blocked 3 persons here.I came to Flickr to show you a world different from your own..I dont evangelise but yes I hate terrorism , I hate women being treated badly, that s all.. I am not into pre teens or porn that is the currency with a rapid exchange rate at flickrs...I am not surprised w…

Shri Vijay Giri Maharaj Naga Guru and Me

Shri Vijay Giri Maharaj Naga Guru and Me
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 This was shot by my shop help when I went to pay my tribute to my Naga Guru Shri Vijay Giri Maharaj at his Shanti Ashram at Film City .
This was my first visit after our predestined meeting at the Nasik Kumbh Trimbakeshwar.
All the Babas devotees touched my feet to my sheer embarassment,but this is ritual for someone who is close to their Master.
This is Guru Parampara.
The Master is God... the light of God guiding you towards your destination.Without a Guru there is no Gyan.. no Knowledge.
The Guru is the door that leads you to your Nirvana.
I am indeed greatful to Maharaj for his patronage and this feeling does not hamper my Muslim upbringing .
This is the collective magic of our Indianness.
Verily Hindu Muslim Bhai Bhai.

The Hijda imposters drink and are male prostitutes..beg at traffic signals.
