Good v/s Evil

Good v/s Evil, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. Ram and Ravan
a tug of war
between
good and evil
within man
encompassed
as a cosmic plan
humility
love of humanity
the core essence
of superman
a blog
riding
the chariot
of a pressman
g mail
that killed
the soul
of a postman

Behind Every Great Photographer Lies Ravan....

Behind Every Great Photographer Lies Ravan...., originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. behind every great photographer lies ravan

pedestrian wisdom
frozen truth
the soul of photographer no1
shooting two great personalities
under the blazing sun
not in the picture hidden from view
a Mumbai cop
with a rusty gun
de dana dhan
dreams that
ramlila
over the ages
spun
recession times
hard cash on the run
the politician wanting
the common mans dhun
good luck restaurant
brun maska butter bun
sharing it with
my bawa friend rohinton
slamming the soul
of pictorial divinity
some moments
embedded in frolic and fun
a camera
an instrument of peace
hung round the neck
like a lucky talisman
holistically healing the soul
of man lost in an ocean
the third eye of shiva
releasing the energy
of a poetic python
poem dedicated
to dear friend

This too constitutes Hope and Hindutva a message of Peace shot by the barefeet blogger of Mumbai..
