Some of his Hindu devotees believe that he was an incarnation of Shiva or Dattatreya. Many devotees believe that he was a Sadguru. There are many stories and eyewitness accounts of miracles he performed. He is a well-known figure in many parts of the world, but especially in India, where he is much revered.

The name 'Sai Baba' is a combination of Persian and Indian origin; Sāī (Sa'ih) is the Persian term for "holy one" or "saint", usually attributed to Islamic ascetics, whereas Baba (honorific) is a word meaning "father; grandfather; old man; sir" used in Indo-Aryan languages. The appellative thus refers to Sai Baba as being a "holy father" or "sa…

Bal Yuvak Utsav Mandal Lalbagh 2009

Bal Yuvak Utsav Mandal Lalbagh 2009, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. Next to Tejukaya was a another pandal I shot, after that I walked midway to Dadar. I was barefeet , this was the day of my first fast of Ramzan and also the first day of Ganesha festival.

I had shot Lalbagh Cha Raja, Ganesh Gully , Tejukaya and this one..Bal Yuvaak mandal...there is more ahead.

I took a cab for Bandra but got off at Plaza when I spotted the Tamils taking the Dharavi Cha Raja home I had to run to catch up with them...

It was one hell of a day..was I tired not really..my barefeet hurt thats about it..

I must mention before I started my journey I met beggar hijras and when I was walking towards Dadar I met hijras again.

After shooting the Lalbagh Cha Raja I walked towards the Ganesh Gully Pandal, I also shoot my surroundings that you call street photography, street photography is the core and essence of my belief in mankind and God.

I cannot shoot flowers , insects landscapes I need pictures populated with people..I need emotions, feelings I need to reveal layers beneath layers..on a mans face.

I dont begrudge people what they shoot , I dont go to their photo stream to tell them what to shoot ..I am fed up of answering comments that are based on bigotry, a recent comment on my Moharam pictures criticized the shedding of blood part of my Shia faith saying it was against Islam..yet the pompous spiritual pedant keeps quiet when Muslims as Jehadis kill , maim rape sodomize society in the name of Islam..

I cant be such a Muslim , my parents late Mohomed and Shamim Shakir taught me that humanity…
