This was shot last week, at the Makhdoom Shah Baba Urus and I wore this kaftan after a very long time, I am trying very hard to complete my backlog of the Urus pictures and other miscellaneous stuff..I have perhaps another 5 GB card to upload..

My dress code has already changed since yesterday I will only wear black for 2 month eight days till Moharam ends.

I spoke to Marziya she is enjoying her train trip to Lucknow...

I wont be shooting Moharam in Mumbai so lets see which city in India I end up in..certainly not Lucknow.

Whichever city I go I will be barefeet till my return the next day after Ashura.

wading through
rivulets of blood
to and fro

lies in humility
in the eyes of the beholder
a garb of modesty
a spiritual adornment
as the soul gets young
while the body gets older
a message of peace
