The House Madrasa Bazar Road

I wanted to make a separate set for these pictures , I might do it when I shoot some more pictures.

There is a lady who teaches the Holy Koran to little poor Muslim kids , she charges Rs 20 per month,I was a bit hesitant but I requested her I would like to shoot pictures , without disturbing the kids..she has a very small room and it is jam packed with the local kids.

Boys and girls sit separately..

This is the greatest service to our community as a Muslim, teaching the core heritage of our Religion , our Faith.,.The Koran our Holy Book is in Arabic and she is teaching it to them , making them imbibe the values of our ancestry and our race.

I dont even know her name but does it matter?

Limbu Mirchi For Good Luck

Shopkeepers tie this at the doors of their shop to keep away evil and bad luck..green chillies lime and coal..even ricksha guys and cab drivers hang it it in their vehicles..

Even whores of the red light area that I have shot hang it at the doors to keep away cops and the local hoodlums from taking hafta.. protection money.

Gambling dens hang it too... so that more people with bad luck come and lose their money here.

Dekho hum tum dono hain ek dali ke phool

O chanda re...

Raakhi ke dhaage sab laaye

bhool hui kya maan-jaai se
behan paraaya dhan hai kehna
usne sada nahi rehna
bahana yaad kare

O chanda re ...

Rakhi Festival Bandra Bazar Road 2009

All Rakhis on sale at Bandra Bazar Road , funny comic characters , as kids want something different and Rakhi Bandhan has nothing to do with Rakhi ka Swaymvar of television..

Raksha Bandhan is the day when sisters pay tribute to their brothers by tying Rakhi a thread tied round the brothers wrist, the brother gives her a gift in return, sisters prefer hard cash...

Luckily I have no Rakhi sisters..and I am perpetually broke on a rainy day too.

But this is a new set and I shot two kids Krish and Kushi going through the Raksha Bandhan rituals at their house.


Abour Raksha Bandhan

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raksha_Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan (the bond of protection in Hindi, Punjabi,Oriya Assamese) is a Hindu festival, which celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters. It is celebrated on the full moon of the month of Shraavana (Shravan Poornima).[1][2][3][4]

The festival is marked by the tying of a rakhi, or holy thread by the sister on the wrist of her brother. The elder brother in return offers a gift to his sister and vows to look after her while an elder sister returns offers to her younger brother. The brother and sister traditionally feed each other sweets. It is not necessary that the rakhi can be given only to a brother by birth; any male can be "adopted" as a brother by tying a rakhi on the person, that is "blood brothers and sisters", whether they are cousins or a good friend. Indian history is replete with women asking for protection, through rakhi, from men who were neither their brothers, nor Hindus themselves. In 16th century, Rani Karnavati of Chittor sent a rakhi to the Mughal Emperor Humayun when she was threatened by Bahadur Shah of Gujarat. Humayun abandoned an ongoing military campaign to ride to her rescue.

The rakhi may also be tied on other special occasions to show solidarity and kinship (not necessarily only among brothers and sisters), as was done during the Indian independence movement.

The origin of the festival is mostly attributed to one of the following mythological incidents:

1. Indra's fight with Vritra - Indra, the king of devtas (gods), had lost his kingdom to the asura (demon) Vritra. At the behest of his Guru Brihaspati, Indra's wife Shachi tied a thread around her husband's wrist to ensure his victory in the upcoming duel.

2. Draupadi and Krishna during the Rajsuya yagya - After Shishupal's death, Krishna was left with a bleeding finger. Draupadi, the wife of the Pandavas, had torn a strip of silk off her sari and tied it around Krishna's wrist to stop the flow of blood. Touched by her concern, Krishna had declared himself bound to her by her love. He further promised to repay the debt many fold. Many years later when Draupudi was about to be shamed by being disrobed in front of the whole court by her evil brother-in-law Duryodhana, she called on Krishna to help her, and he did by divinely elongating her sari so it could not be removed.

Other significant myths, revolving this sacred festivial, have been passed down for generations in families across India.

[edit] History

There are many references to the significance of the Rakhi festival in Vaishnava Theology. Many of these significant historical facts are still not known or recorded.

[edit] Vritra-Indra

The origin of this festival is usually traced back to the historical incidents of Indra's fight with Vritra-Indra that resulted in Indra's loss. Then, his wife had tied a thread around his wrist and empowered it with divine powers to make sure Indra emerged victorious in the duel that followed.

[edit] Krishna and Draupadi

Another incident is the one from the epic Mahabharat that concerns Krishna and Draupadi, the wife of the Pandavas. She had torn a strip of silk off her sari and tied it around Krishna's wrist to stop the flow of blood Krishna was so touched by her action that he found himself bound to her by love. He promised to repay the debt and then spent the next 25 years doing just that. Draupadi in spite of being married to 5 great warriors and being a daughter of a powerful monarch only trusted and depended wholly on Krishna.

Krishna repaid the debt of love during "Vastra haran"(removing of clothes forcefully) of Draupadi. Draupadi's "Vastra Haran" was done in the assembly of King Dritrashtra, when Yudishter,her husband lost her in gamble,at that time Krishna indefinitely extended her saree, so it could not be removed, to save her pride.This is how He paid his debt towards rakhi tied to him by Draupadi.

[edit] King Bali and Goddess Laxmi

According to another legend the Demon King Bali was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu had taken up the task to guard his kingdom leaving his own abode in Vaikunth. Goddess Lakshmi wished to be with her lord back in her abode. She went to Bali disguised as a Brahmin woman to seek refuge till her husband came back.

During the Shravan Purnima celebrations, Lakshmi tied the sacred thread to the King. Upon being asked she revealed who she was and why she was there. The king was touched by her goodwill for his family and her purpose and requested the Lord to accompany her. He sacrificed all he had for the Lord and his devoted wife.

Thus the festival is also called Baleva that is Bali Raja's devotion to the Lord. It is said that since then it has been a tradition to invite sisters in Shravan Purnima for the thread tying ceremony or the Raksha Bandhan.[5]

[edit] Yama and the Yamuna

According to another legend, Raksha Bandhan was a ritual followed by Lord Yama (the Lord of Death) and his sister Yamuna. Yamuna tied rakhi to Yama and bestowed immortality. Yama was so moved by the serenity of the occasion that he declared that whoever gets a rakhi tied from his sister and promised her protection will become immortal.

[edit] Raksha Bandhan celebrations in India

While Raksha Bandhan is celebrated all over the country, different parts of the country mark the day in different ways. These celebrations happen to fall on the same day, and may not have anything to do with Raksha Bandhan itself or Rakhi.

[edit] Tying of rakhi

Perhaps the single most important way of celebrating Raksha Bandhan is by tying the rakhi. A sister ties a rakhi to the wrist of her brother. The tying of a rakhi signifies her asking of her brother for his protection and love for the sister and repay her with a small gift. The brother in turn, accepts the rakhi, confirms his love and affection for his sister. It is a family event where all members of family, dressed in finery, gather and celebrate. The tying of rakhi is followed by a family feast.

On this day the sisters also tie a 'loomba' to the bangle of their brother's wife. A loomba is a loop of string with a charm or some other item attached to the loop of string. This charm or item then dangles from the bangle. The sisters then receive money from their sister's in law.

[edit] Rakhi Purnima

Rakhi is celebrated as Rakhi Purnima in North India as well as in parts of Northwest India. The word "Purnima" means a full moon night.it is also called as rakshabhandan.

[edit] Nariyal Purnima

In western India and parts of Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Goa this day is celebrated as Nariyal Purnima. On this day an offering of a coconut (nariyal) is made to the sea, as a mark of respect to Lord Varuna, the God of the Sea. Nariyal Purnima marks the beginning of the fishing season and the fishermen, who depend on the sea for a living, make an offering to Lord Varuna so that they can reap bountiful fish from the sea.

[edit] Kajari Purnima

In central parts of India such as Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Jharkand and Bihar this day is celebrated as Kajari Purnima. It is an important day for the farmers and women blessed with a son. On the ninth day after Shravana Amavasya, the preparations of the Kajari festival start. This ninth day is called Kajari Navami and varied rituals are performed by women who have sons until Kajri Purnima or the full moon day.

[edit] Pavitropana

In parts of Gujarat, this day is celebrated as Pavitropana. On this day people perform the grand pooja or the worship of Lord Shiva. It is the culmination of the prayers done through out the year.

Hell Hath No Fury Than An Angel Spurned

i am a pauper now
i gave away whatever

Man is Always Fucking Another Man's Brain

shocking title but the message is plain
man is always fucking another mans brain
man the greatest hypochondriac
this worlds greatest pain
he says one thing but means another
fuck only he can explain
man bound to a chaotic karmic chain
living in mumbai
dreaming of Isabella in Spain
a forged visa for America
but lands up in Bahrain
man a two legged animal
who can never use his brain
man speeding on a fast track lane
man the eternal joker
born to entertain
than comes a dictator
millions are slain

Photographers Are Born Not Factory Made

how can you give
what you dont have
what god never made
photographers are born
not factory made
i am sorry
i hurt you
behind the camera
you have to be an inborn camera
not as a photographer masquerade
shoot what you have to shoot
from within a thought
dont evade
god gives you the camera eye
a manual and a teaching aid
photography is not about
how much you are paid
it is about shadows highlights
of your soul and not about trade
a good photographer may die
his pictures wont fade

Unlearning Photography Through The Eyes Of A Child

she is small
but knows
what is means to
be born and beg
the rise and fall
of the human egg
as she watches
with her camera eye
me shooting
beggar kids
hope without limbs
faith without legs
children of a lesser god
of dregs

Sometimes I watch Marziya as she reads minds , situations alien to her innocence her protected life, I have shown Marziya paths littered with pain,I have shown Marziya cultural differences bifurcating the spiritual existence of man, I have show Marziya fences , that only a photographer sees..the photographer is prophetic , a visionary , he shoots the unseen , that which never existed before, the photographer is god without gods godliness, the photographer is an atheist too,behind the viewfinder the photographer is what god is not..the photographer is human...

Photography is a holistic science that heals both mind and body..photography beyond barriers photography beyond all god made man made frontiers..

I call this unlearning photography..Marziya teaches this too me each time I shoot her ..yes ,she shoots me ..

I miss Marziya is an understatement , my camera misses her more than me..her grip on the Nikon D 80 is that of a professional, her head bent low eyes into the darkness of the viewfinder ..she will give any top shot photo journalist the run for his money..

That she is 21 month old is irrelevant to photography..in photography you never age..at any given stage..a click into eternity through a web page..

a gift of madmen

Ablutions and Blind Faith

overfilled to the brim

holding my nostrils
vomiting as my own

God Created Woman To Humiliate Man

through
her loins he is born
from a womb
tattered and torn

god created woman

for his hate and his scorn
