"Maarutatulyavegam Jitendriyam
Buddhimataam Varistham,
Vaataatmajam Vaanarayoothmukhyam
Sriramdootam Saranam Prapadhye"

Meaning: Lord Hanuman is the messenger of Lord Rama. His pace is as rapid as the wind and as quick as the mind. Hanuman has constrained his sense organs. He is the most intelligent among the intelligent ones. Hanuman is the son of Vayu (Pawan) and the chief of the monkey tribe. We surrender ourselves to Lord Hanuman

ripping open his chest
he showed
divinity
in his breast
a slave of god
the very best
Lord Hanuman
loved in the east and the west
he welcomes all to his nest
friends relatives and guest
those that have lost hope
completely depressed
those over stressed
under his shadow recover
get back their life and zest
his mantra…

The Artist shot by an Artist- Mr K G Maheshwari

“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did he would cease to be an artist.”
Oscar Wilde




the photographer
the artist
the poet
mutually co exist
seamlessly
the soul
of a human canvas fit
beauty that the maker lit
his creation
more creatively they transmit
a part becomes a whole
even if you see a little bit
a thin line of demarcation
a circle of confusion
between the witless and the wit
one bequeaths a heritage
while the witless says I quit

Dedicated to Mrs BW Jatkar..a brave lady who faced the odds and was a sheet anchor to a great man Mr BW Jatkar....she faced all the storms and stood by him..may God give her the strength to bear this irreparable loss with the rest of her family..

shot by Mr KG Maheshwari

This was a photo shoot at Mr KG Maheshwaris house and Mr BW Jatkar was present at the shoot assisting with the lights, this the humility of a great photographer in the presence of a great photographer Maheshwariji..

Jatkar Saab called him Babuji..they were very comfortable in each others company.Both were knowledgeable, creative distinctly apart from the new breed of photographers who want to shoot fashion models the moment they are born from their mothers womb..they want big bucks..I dont begrudge them, but what I learnt under these two great artists was not just photography, or reading the light , or exposure I learnt humility, I saw dedication and devotion,I picked up a treasure trove that is the soul of humanity.


I dont know whether the title given by Maheshwariji befits my character and nature as a poet photographer blogger and a professional…

SWINE FLU BASICS

Swine Flu Symptoms
Swine Flu Basics

By Vincent Iannelli, M.D.,

Updated August 02, 2009



Although the name 'swine flu' brings up a lot of extra fear and worry, it is important to note that swine flu is just an influenza A H1N1 virus.

That means that it is just another type of flu virus, just like that causes our typical seasonal flu symptoms. The big difference is that the current swine influenza A (H1N1) virus has components of pig and bird influenza viruses in it, so that humans don't have any immunity to it. That is what made it more likely that it would become a pandemic virus (have the ability to cause a global outbreak) because it could easily spread from person-to-person.

So far, even as you see swine flu cases increase on this swine flu map, experts don't know if this swine influenza A (H1N1) virus will return in the fall for another wave. It could or we just continue to see spor…

The Beggar Hijra Beauty of Mumbai

The Beggar Hijra Beauty of Mumbai, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. I had a visit from the hijras the day I was going to town to shoot the Ganesh Gully Ganpati workshops and the photo exhibition..of Girish Mistrys students.

They were in a group and a few from this group had visited me a few months back.

This was a crazy shoot to say the least I shot over 68 pictures in 15 minutes..

50 Lacs On Dustbins Instead of Face Masks

50 Lacs On Dustbins Instead of Face Masks, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. The local MLA
from his funds
for dustbins
will pay
as cleanliness
in buildings
is more important
than human beings
or human infrastructure
they say
N95 face mask
back marketeers
have field day
what sold for Rs 50
is now being sold for
Rs 350 in market gray
with human life they play
on the gullible the helpless
they prey to become
multi millionaires one day
swine flu is here to stay
to test mans fortitude
his social decay
prayer and a positive approach
is what is needed today
its all about resilience resurgence
at the end of the day
games on the soul of humanity
that some politicians play

visionaries

master to appease
on the wings of chariots
we flow with the breeze
we have no hands
to grease
our souls
made in india
our camera
made by the japanese
we have art
they have the expertise
poems will flow
like the river ganges
words volley of words sourced
from a grateful god
will never ever cease
he who protects us
from every kind of disease
swine flu will come and go..
man on a life's trapeze
prevention is better than a sneeze
