According to the philosophy of Tantra, the entire universe is a manifestation of pure consciousness. In manifesting the universe, this pure consciousness seems to become divided into two poles or aspects, neither of which can exist without the other.

One aspect, Shiva, is masculine, retains a static quality and remains identified with unmanifested consciousness. Shiva has the power to be but not the power to become or change.

The other aspect, Shakti, is feminine, dynamic, energetic and creative. Shakti is the Great Mother of the universe, for it is from her that all form is born.

According to Tantra, the human being is a miniature universe. All that is found in the cosmos can be found within each individual, and the same principles that apply to the universe apply in the case of the individual being.

In human beings, Shakti, the feminine aspect is called Kundalini. This potential energy is said to rest at the base of the spinal cord. The object of the Tantric practice of Kundalini-yoga is to awaken this cosmic energy and make it ascend through the psychic centres, the chakras, that lie along the axis of the spine as consciousness potentials. She will then unite above the crown of the head with Shiva the pure consciousness. This union is the aim of Kundalini-yoga: a resolution of duality into unity again, a fusion with the Absolute. By this union the adept attains liberation while living which is considered in Indian life to be the highest experience: an union of the individual with the universe.

In Tantrism the state of ultimate bliss is a transcendence of dualities male-female, energy-consciousness, Shiva-Shakti.

Nandi Shivas Bull

According to Some Puranas, he was born out of the right side of Vishnu resembling Siva exactly and given as a son to the sage Salankayana. Some purnas mention him as the son of the sage Silada who got him by the grace of Shiva.

It was Nandi who cursed Ravana (the demon King of Lanka) that his kingdom would be burnt by a monkey (Vanara). And later Hanuman burnt Lanka when he went in search of Sita, who was kept prisoner by Ravana in Ashok Vatika.

When the positive forces, the devas, and the negative forces, the asuras, joined together on a rare occasion to churn the ocean with a mountain to obtain the nectar of immortality they utilized Vasuki, the serpent, as the rope. The devas pulled from one end and the asuras from the other. Vasuki was upset during the process of this churning, and vomited up a poison which became human karma. This "poison" was so dangerous that none of the devas or asuras wanted to go near it. It was extremely sticky and coming into contact with this poison, i.e, human karma, would drag the divinity down to the realms of human suffering and ego. As everyone else ran away, Lord Siva, followed by Nandi, came forward to help as he was the only one who could counteract this deadly poison. Shiva took the poison into his hand and drank it. Nandi saw some of the poison spill out of Siva's mouth and immediately drank if off the ground. The devas and asuras watching were shocked and wondered aloud what would happen to Nandi. Lord Siva calmed their fears saying, "Nandi has surrendered into me so completely that he has all my powers and my protection

Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1

I am on the internet since August 2005.And I am what I am my pictures, my blogs my poems tell my story, I don’t hide any part of me , I don’t wear a Mask, conceal my identity
Call me narcissist, egoist whatever. I am what the Blog has made me..I did not have this many dimensions when I set out on my journey on cyberspace Indian Bloggers Pilgrimage.
I hate Racism in all form, and I have been targeted for more reasons than one, and racism
On the Internet cannot be kerbed or controlled.I don’t attack unless I m provoked I hit back through words and pictures my arsenal amply God gifted and very powerful too in my time of need. Unlike others I fight my own battle singularly, not needing support of any kind, if it comes in I know it is a Benn Bell, Poseyal, Da Vinca on Flickr or my poet friends like Elysabeth Faslund, Ted Sheridan, Eagle Hawk, Ray Lucero, Tai Chi Itlay , Howlin, Lativia Tunisia and my once foe turned friend Trade Martin and a lot of them I cannot individually name it would fill this entire page.
I hate racists who attack Indians, specially our icons like Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Gandhiji, Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray to name a few.Whatever people may say about Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray he is a nationalist, and his hate is against anti –nationalists of any caste color or creed. He is the Hope and Hindutva of Peace and multi cultural co-existence as Indians and nothing else.
I think that says much to his credit a leader loved by the Marathi Manoos and the Father of Marathi resurgence .Yes we are Marathis.
Now coming to the core of this article, I joined Better Photography Forum on Oct 1 2007
A magazine that has been part of my pictorial growth like others in this vast city.
I subscribed for it for several years.
I joined the Forum, and copied some of my Blogs on Photo Blogging an aspect of photography that is looked down upon in camera clubs and by washed out old skeletal
old fashioned photographers with one leg in the grave.
I am an elderly person, fun loving jovial, and I wont attack till I am provoked as mentioned earlier.An incident took place at the Forum, I felt as a senior person I was being mocked through a comment by Subodheep Ghosh a dimwitted member , I was abusive and mad, but I called up Samira of Better Photography to delete my comment as it was in bad taste and not in keeping with what my Gurus had taught me.But my next comment my anger had not subsided , and I guess I was a bit harsh, so this was the point
that led by man called Panditji I was lashed , a personal attack from all his Muslim hating cronies, and it appeared that the forum belongs to them, I was not given a chance to defend myself, I was proved guilty and a more vicious racist like Panditji and his hateful crony called Gopal who went after me forcing me to UNSUBSCRIBE..
Panditji went so far to say that if I did not leave he would leave this is blackmail and instigating the forum against me.I apologised for a remark but the fury was severe that I called up Samira in the Administration to Unsubscribe me.She took her own sweet time till the following day and repeated emails, messaged had no effect.Finally I posted a message in the Announcement section and they did the needful.So there is no agenda or ulterior motive against my Blogs I have written to expose this coterie.The most pathetic part is the website that is the forum you cannot delete or edit what you have written.
This is edit and delete is what rests the sincerity of a Blog.We get carried away but we must have the controls to edit or delete , nothing like it at Better Photography Forum.
No Moderator .
No Adminsitration arbitration
Just Goonda Raj
Jungle Raj
The only person who was mature enough to understand and diffuse the situation wasa member Mcliu.. I thank him and wish him my very best. Till I am not issued an Apology by Muslim hating Panditji Gopal Ani Sujit Anr I shall continue unabated with my exposure on these pseudo photographers and the main culprit of the drama Subodhdeep Ghosh..
I now copy a email message I sent to the editor of Better Photography ..
I post it here as this racial hate is an insult to me as an Indian and as a photographer and verily as a poet and photographer too. I have the highest regard for Better Photography Editorial and Administration.
This is not against them I reiterate , I was forced , gangraped emotionally by Panditji and his Cronies. This should not happen to the next Muslim who enters the forum and may not be as vociferous in his defense and cogent like me..

Dear Sir /Madam
I have had a bad experience with one of your members subodheepghosh, whose comment on my post
was disparaging to my character as a person and as a photoblogger who came here to the forum to share
my views.I have had the greatest respect for Better Photography editorial management , having been a subscriber of the magazine
for many years.
I am not in a position to fight online hoodlums , I have done it for two years , on my other sites
they are a group, you hit back one all gang up, so I request you very humbly to unsubscribe me and delete all my posts my comments and my presence from your Forum.
It was good as it lasted..
Wish you well.

THANK YOU IT WAS 8 DAYS THAT I GAVE MY BEST TO THE FORUM, WITHOUT ANY BIAS OR RESERVATION AND NOT FOR GAINING ANY COOKIE POINTS AND I WAS NOT AT THE FORUM TO POPULARISE MYSELF ..
I AM ALREADY BLOGGING AND WELL KNOWN ON THE CYBERNET..
ITS A PITY YOU HAVE NO ETHICS OR CONTROL ON THE FORUM , EVEN COMMENTS ELSEWHERE ARE MODERATED BEFORE THEY ARE PUBLISHED
THAT IS WHY EDIT AND DELETE ARE TWO MAJOR TOOLS OF A FORUM USER IN HIS HANDS..
I THINK I HAVE SAID ENOUGH..
I AM A VICTIM OF A HATE CAMPAIGN AND AS A MUSLIM.PERIOD.

IF YOU DONT UNSUBSCRIBE ME I SHALL PUBLISH THIS MESSAGE ON YOUR FORUM AND ON MY SITES ON THE INTERNET..

This message is posted now I am already Unsunscribed to show you my mental torture under one man of the Forum Pandiitji and his pack of Racist Wolves.None have apologised to the slur on my character , my Indianess and my being denigerated as a Muslim..

oh great guy,
great introduction. u are an extrovert person what i felt from yr sayings and sites above.

Respected shri k g maheshwari and prof b w jatkar regularly sent their entries when i conducted 4 all india salons few yrs back.
i met respected shrikantji many yrs back, when i joined JJ School of Arts.
when i read feroz, the thoughts came to me of famous feroz rangoonwala.
anyhow, i welcome u to bp forum (what i noticed, blogging is not here). we view each others photographs and appreciate their efforts. so since u introduced yrself as photographer no.1, with all respects to yr personality, looking forward to see yr work, particularly on glamour. best of luck dear feroz. it will be pleasure for me to see yr sites.

dear feroz,
read yr posts/blogs, and i am sorry to notice the treatment given to u as shia or muslim. there are ultras in every religion, but i appreciate yr spirit for keeping yr morale high.

no doubt u are a voracious /reader/writer, and yr keyboard runs more than fast, it is again pleasing that u are interested in poetry-which is also my favourites

"woh aaye hamare forum mein, khuda ki kudrat,
kabhi ham unko aur kabhi forum ko dekhte hain.".


personalities like u are rare, and i feel that u will leave a great legacy for the posterity. i and my friends do have respect for yr courage for bearing so much tension and traumas. but what i feel, yr interests in these arts kept u going nonchalantly. forget about religion-we all are bhartiya (not anil bhartiya-a good gentleman).

Brother Gopal thank you for your encouraging words , and I am Indian ,and also a member of Mr Anil Bhrtiyas NAPP ,I learnt a lot from him , on trips to Murud to shoot the Bullock Cart race , or to Malshej Ghats, he is the only photographer teacher who teaches through field trips at grass root levels, and most of the photography courses even taught in BMM still adhere to the old school , no changes, no crusader to bring in change.
Photography is big bucks , everybody wants glamour glitz and money.Teachers like Mitter Bedi, Unwallah, Bhardwaj, Phanibanda are are all dead and gne who taught photography once they clamoured and gathered at Photographic Society of India 70 years back, today Photography in camera clubs is about politics, I distanced myself from this state of affairs.
Girish Mistry teaches photography with a pssion and is most respected and revered..but his knowledge comes with a price , but worth it .I learnt my basics with Mr Shreekanth Malushte.. a sincere teacher.
Later through his efforts I became a life member Photographic Society of India Mumbai, and met mu other two Gurus Mr KG Maheshwari whom we call Dronacharya and Black and White Jatkar.Prof Jatkar is the master of monochrome and nudes.
So the most important the core ingredient in Indian Photography is finding a good Guru touching his Feat ..this is called Guru Parampara.. Without Guru there is no Gyan..
This s why we are more powerfully visually stronger and better entrenched than the foreigm Institute learned photographer of the West.
I have another Guru he is a 18 year old American boy from California called Tom, or doyoulike it, I call him my American Guru, he is the finest photographer..
There is another photographer whose work on India is prolific and realistic.. Dr Glenn Losack MD
www.glennlosackmd.com/-/glennlosackmd/
Well I will shed light later on Tom, and pictures of Dr Glen Losack you must study , this is the way into the heart of photography.
Photography is shooting and sharing pictures, but Photo Blogging is sharing Life , adding Life to where no Life existed..
So thank you Gopal.. I am just getting a hang here at BP Forum..
I consider Photo Blogging a a spiritual endeavor as a photographer I may be a part of a religiosity but as a Photo Blogger I am beyond all this flowing in the human stream of a superior consciousness...
I am Hindu I am Muslim but I am two sides of the same coin called India.

Firoze,

It is really inspiring to know about your philosophy. Great interprtation of life & photography. You must believe that every people has some hidden intention, who tries to nourish it,few get success, few ....

When we come to know or meet people who always put thrust to fulfill his hidden intention which is not for earning money, fame, clout, we create a barrier arround that man or woman. We never compare him/her with others. I feel you are a guy like that.

Welcome in this FORUM.

Hi Forum If anyBP Forum member needs guidance in Photo Blogging , or any query in this regard dont hesitate to write me.
People who want to share a unique community of photographers, the short cut is a Photo Blog..
Some of the interesting Photo Blogging site with emphasis on social net working too are
Buzznet

For the serious Blogger
Bloggerspot
Word Press

For the Foto Freak
Flickr
Ipernity

Blogging may net earnyou big bucks but it gives you a karmic release if you have the zing in you, and if you dont have you develop it, I never wrote a single word , never an article nor any poem..it all happened through Photo Blogging 24 months back..
I rarely post atBuzznet where I am known as Shiathugno1, but it is to Buzznet I owe the development of my psyche ...good friends and outstanding photographers who bought me this far adding the necessary shape to my personality..as an Indian beware Racism exiss but hit back..
dont be scared we Indians have one grand advantage we were born talented by default..thank you India.

Since your posts are blog-like accompanied by pictures - we would request you to post them in relevant sections like "General Discussions" or "Daily Life" (if your discussions stem from a Daily Life photograph).

Thanks.

Happy Shooting

Thank You Administration Better Photography
My relationship with BP goes a very long way back, I would visit your offices I remember and bond with your enthusiastic journos and stafff..
Its just that after I moved away , from analogue photography and gave my soul to the Photo bLog, I realised I had begun to Unlearn Photography. and break the myth created by Times of India blue eyed boy Shobhan Saxena that Photo Bloggers are photographers with a mission of Peace, not failed writers, and murderers, or crazies as suggested each time and each Sunday they write an obitury for the death of the Blog.. but God is kind to Blogges and keeps extending their shelf life.Recently at PSI Mumbai Annual Day where your ex editor Hoshang was the Chief Guest I posed a question about blogging he just looked at me with a vacncy in his eyes.. well Blogging is beyond Smart Photograpy I kept this opinion to myself..Photographers are seduced by the idea of minting money they want to be glitzy, shoot celebs , so hardly any camera club talks about blogging..and Blogging has not even come of age in India.. Sulekha Blogs Rediff are just crappy copywriters at a Brhamanic spiel like crabs in a bottle.. I was blocked at Sulekha Blogs called a confused Muslim all because I posted 600 blogs in three days..and scared the veterans of a tsunami in the offing..racism exists among us Indians too and more strongly here than the West..Indians dont like Indians very much..
At Word Press I posted over 500 blogs in a single day..so this is the passion of blogging..I hope to learn from all of you also, and thanks I find your forum an excellent place that nurtures human goodwill.. I am a bit confused about the format here , thanks for the tip, deleting a post should be made simpler even editing too..

you cannot comment on my pictures if you are not my contact, as there are many Shia baters that have gone abusive and personal intheir religious fundamental attacks on me .

Thank You Noni , I think any website or a forum should be blogger friendly simple and easily understandable, whether a veteran or an amateur should get the hang of it, and edit and delete are very important aspects to control content that goes off hand sometimes.. but I have no complaints my problem is I am a severe diabetic I type with one finger of an injured hand I have diminishing eyesight so I make typo errors that really look bad after posting..and inspite of being a blogger fr two years I am not at all web or net savvy


After this Panditji and his cronies sharpened their knives to circumcise the Soul of a Muslim Blogger..I wish I had
copied all the Hate comments that came because I lashed out at a dickhead called sobodheepghosh for his derogatory comment on one of my post..that was the beginning of my end .
All these faces that welcomed me to the Better Photo graphy Forum ganged up against me the most vicious the Rogue Pandit
the head of the Muslim hating gang..
I am greatful that Better Photography Adminsitration dealt with this matterjudiciously fairly without any bias
and with respect of human sentiments.
My relationship with Better Photography shall continue..
I will make public the racism in photography that existing the Forum that has been usurped by vested interests., all wearing masks of hate , they welcome newcomers than if you falter or rub any one of them they will make your life unbearable..
Like this vicious Panditji who said if Firoze does not leave I will leave the Forum..
This devious man , Muslim hater, and he cannot deny all this, he hated me from day one realising that his popularity was going to take a beating.
I have no ulterior motive or agenda but to warn others of the duplicity of these hate filled members.,.
Gopal said bloggers are not allowed to the forum vociferously as though he owns the forum..
this despicable lot of , they perhaps were shocked that this Shia Muslim, is an Indian does not wear a goatee or a skull cap..
and perhaps yes as panditji said I am a Bombast, yes but shit head your father did not pay for my education, and I had a more cosmopolitan and Hindu loving upbringing than you..as a Hindu born could ever dream of Messiah of Racist Hate ..

The Kumbh is over long live the Kumbh on Flickr ..
YES I AM A SHIA PANDIT
I DONT NEED THE SAFETY OF A POISONOUS BOTTLE AND END UP A CRAB LIKE YOU
I REITERATE INDIANS ARE THE BIGGER RACISTS..
