A Divine Flu Called Love - To Akbar Simonese

falling in love
a divine flu
caused by a viral bug
deep into the soul it dug
like a wound caused by a slug
prevention is better than cure
he says it with a hug,,
flowing waters of faith
replenishing a broken jug
a bleeding head
of a shia samurai
needs no drug
at buzznet
she once called him
the shia thug

to akbar
from a pedestrian poet of mumbai

BLACK AND WHITE

one a beige black
the other pinkish white
both masters of spectral light
one shoots hijras
the other shoots beggars
pain as a delirium
in instant flight
the camera
an instrument of peace
color or black and white
photography
a holistic science
that heals
makes all things right
as you watch
the disfranchised
the marginalized
hopes dreams
battered shattered
unrealized
flying in the air
a threadless kite
pictures text
pedestrian poem
you read as
I blindly write
a world
within a world
a panoramic sight
google searching
for peace
on the internet
to reunite
no photo blog awards
for a racially profiled
hijdaeunchblogsite
this is not a popularity contest
she said the bitch was right

I Have Put My Bandra Blog Set To Sleep

All my stuff is in sets, and as a default set Bandra Blog served me well it had over 3800 pictures or more , it was my default set, and the genre was quintessentially street photography, shot through cab windows, and mostly in and around Bandra.

Last evening I put the set to sleep , not before transferring it to another set Firoze Shakir Street Photography.

All my Bandra Bazar pictures , the fish market are now held in two different sets respectively.

Set management is a pain in the butt , I have too many set to scroll, my miscellaneous stuff , obituaries, screen shots etc, I have created a new set Screen Shots Friends and Blogs, I have no time to fine tune my sets ..and all this forms a part of the bulk of my collections.

Even my religious event pictures , processions all are part of the street photography genre including the hijras , I shoot hijras mostly on the streets..

I shot a hijra friend at her home, she wanted me to shoot her nude , I refused , its not my cup of tea , I have the greatest respect for artistic nudes but I prefer to shoot in ambient light, I cant manage the claustrophobic restricted studio space..

I had invitations to shoot nudes , one of my gurus is master in this form, but never liked his choice of model that were mostly commercial workers posing to make a quick buck.

Due to the heavy rains I have not shot much and I cant lift my ass to shoot the Milan subway or the Worli Seaface..waves now a greater tourist attraction with the elitist Bandra Worli Sea Link.

Shooting the Ghats, Konkan Ratnagiri is a great choice, but I have no time or the inclination..I dont shoot flowers insects or birds.,..

I have added three extra sets from existing pictures :

The Leper Lady of Bandra Hill Road , she sat at Boran Road that is a narrow alley leading to Bandra Bazar Road, she is the furious physician Dr Glenns Mumbai muse..she hardly talks I have till date never spoken to her , she has educated her children, she has no husband ..they keep asking me about Glenn..

The leper mother now sits outside the Globus showroom on Bandra Hill Road in the evenings.

The other set is the Blind Beggar boy of Bandra, he had undergone an eye operation, the local mosque had sponsored the operation , but he continued begging , he and his caretaker both have disappeared..they begged at Boran road and also close to my house.

Appu My Friend the beggar lad without limbs too has disappeared from St Michaels Church Mahim . he sat there on Wednesdays.

My last new set is the Muslim Beggars of Mumbai..this now holds some existing beggar women pictures..I intend to showcase the lives of the disfranchised neglected Muslim, who is what the entire community should be trying to rehabilitate , they deserve a better deal , in the unification of Muslim pride..under God ..but we give so much importance by our silence towards jehaddis who have hijacked our religion for all times.

The Muslim beggar seeks salvation..and he has found none sitting outside the Mosque each Friday from one generation to the next.

The sad case of the Kashmiri migrants who beg with their beautiful rosy cheeked children during the Mahim Urus , even their women beg..

This beggar set was inspired by the furious physician.
