Sometimes a Photographer Too Needs to Be Shot

These are a few pictures sent to me with a note by Nawab Syed Mehdi Ali Khan of Hussaini Koti Hyderabad , I had shot the 8 Moharam event here..pictures were all shot by Raza photographer..

Adaab,
Mashallah, you are doing hectic work as a blogger. You have put so many picture of our Hussaini Kothi. Accept a few from our side.

my poem dedicated to Nawab Syed Mehdi Al Khan

carrying the rumal
of princess fatima
to shoot hussaini koti
a barefeet blogger
from mumbai
to your
kingdom of pain
spirituality
he came
seeing you passion
your dedication
to hussain
your biggest fan
he became
Karbala
the black chapter
of Islam
Sham Damascus
where Muslim
womanhood
was shamed
with her kutbas
watched by 72
heads on a spear
Zainab the indomitable '
powerhouse
of Alis strength
accursed Yazid
his arrogance
tamed
from drops
of tears
that fell from
a mothers eyes
the Shias
were named
as a banner
of revolt
against oppression
terrorism
their ancestry claimed

From The Cradle To The Grave

a little mujahid
strong and brave
from the atrocity
of accursed yazid
brotherhood
of peace
he did save
it was not water
but the love
of humanity
like his father
he did crave
while
the eunuchs
in yazids army
watched
all this
no shock wave
better to die
with dignity
than live
shamelessly
as a slave
a message
to all of us
he gave
from
the cradle
to the grave
