where there is darkness
he gives hope
a divine intervention
to a brighter future
beyond the reams
of you astral horoscope
Lalbagh Cha Raja
to a drowning man
not just a straw
but a life saving rope
a beacon of light
that in despair
you need not grope
removing all obstacles
giving you more scope
that you can easily walk
life's precarious
whatever the dangers
as a man you cope
your karmic consciousness
cleaned with a divine soap

still connected to us
through memories

much knowledge
to us you did give
you were human
our faults
our shortcomings
you did forgive

today though
you are no more
with us jatkar saab
in our hearts you relive

The crowds are restless, hot tempered, looking for a fight, having waited hours to get in through a serpentine wait in the rains, in the heat and dust.
So seeing me shooting some wanted me to finish and move out as I was in their way, ahead of me was a barricade that I crossed once to meet Raju Langewal who had invited me to shoot ..I also shot the crowd that soothed their excitement, some wondered who this colorful barefeet blogger was, in Mumbai very few people know what a blogger is..I talk strictly at the grass root level ..

Women here I found were really aggressive and the few stood tamely, there were many scenes of scuffles, but otherwise almost everyone was here to partake in this omnipotent moment of Mumbai street spirituality, this place is a street on normal day with provision shops on both ends.. this is a path that leads to the Lalbagh Cha Mandir.. in the complex.
