Ramlila Artistes Backstage

Ramlila Artistes Backstage, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 98,790 items / 597,487 views

This is the last segment of pictures shot backstage on Dasshera day that I am posting now.. I have a very slow Flickr uploader , it takes hours sometimes several days to get mt pictures to my photostream.

But I am not complaining..

The artistes at Ramlila are all male doing a splendid job and playing multi characters , they help each other , they do make up on the other artistes and even they do not complain..

They are all from good solid sound back grounds but they love Ramlila .

Ram and Laxman , also known as Gopal and Govind both real brothers both Chaturvedis are from Mumbai the rest from Mathura.

For me this backstage was a pictorial eyeopener, there was peace brotherhood and harmony among all the artistes.

I am also thankful to the organizers of the Ramlila allowing me to shoot this important event for the second time..Thank you Sundar Bhai I Kannar.

Give The Mumbai Police Man His Due

Give The Mumbai Police Man His Due, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 98,789 items / 597,443 views

The Mumbai Police cop has been on his feet contributing with his humility , his khaki presence to the law and order situation in Mumbai.
And the positive side , he is doing a brilliant job, whatever crass the media writes about him ,there are bad eggs in every basket in society so why just pick on cops...there s corruption in Gods house too, in politics so why just corner the policeman only ..dont paint all of them with a brush of hate.

The long hours at work means that the policeman has hardly any time for his family,or his childrens growth.His accommodation is a pigeon hole..his salary sucks..he has no time for anything else..

I have always made it a point , to make the policeman the hero of all my religious procession stories , he is there and his shadow keeps evil at bay, as there are bad elements waiting to bring peace to a halt in Mumbai our beloved city where we all…

Lord Ravan

Lord Ravan, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 98,755 items / 597,258 views
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravana

Ravana is a character in Hindu mythology, and is the primary antagonist in the Ramayan epic.

He plays a major role in the Hindu mythology Ramayana, where he is mainly depicted negatively as a brute, and most infamously as having kidnapped Rama's wife Sita and being killed by her husband.

This depiction is, however, open to other interpretations. Ravana is also mentioned as a great scholar, a capable ruler, Veena Player and a devoted follower of Shiva, and he has his apologists and staunch devotees within the Hindu traditions. The contrived meaning of "10 headed" as it is propagated by nationalists is that he possessed a very thorough knowledge in the 4 vedas, and 6 upanishadas (although the Upanishads number in their hundreds), which made him as powerful as 10 scholars. However, there is mention in Atharva Veda of demonic brahmans called 'Dasagva'…
