My Bare Feet

My Bare Feet, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. my bare feet
shooting the passion
the spiritual angst
of every Indian feast
last but not the least
peace
hijacked by the
rogue mullah
the rogue sadhu
the rogue priest
political patronage
where hate meets
tears on the soul
of humanity
mans ultimate defeat
mans fate not god
only man loves to cheat

Shooting A World of Pain Through a Blog

Shooting A World of Pain Through a Blog, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. I have posted over 1000 pictures of the Chehlum in Mumbai 2010 set at my Flickr photo stream, there is about another 600 pictures I have to upload before I bring this series to an end and continue with my back log of pictures shot of the Dhamal and the trans gender community of India ..all shot at Haji Malang climbing the mountains barefeet .

This is not just a Shia bloggers take on Shiasm , I shoot life and pain as I see it on the viewfinder of my soul.

I shoot all religiosity as an Indian , and not just because I am a Shia , I respect my cultural inheritance , my faith does not get blown away in the winds because I shoot other faiths too, I give respect to my friends Hindu faith or my friends Christian faith I get respect for my faith too..this is what we call two hand clapping, you cant clap with one hand.

Yes I shoot the Naga Sadhus I shoot Lalbaghcha Raja Durga Ma and all Mumbai socio relig…

The Shia Samurais of Mumbai

A Bleeding Bond of Faith

Shooting Shiasm at Grass Root Level

Cutting My Head The Second Time at Shia Cemetery

Cutting My Head The Second Time at Shia Cemetery, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. As I cut my head open again with the camera dangling round my neck and it was impulsiveness on my part , I took a dagger from a persons hand removed my earlier bandage and cut open my earlier wound all over again , leaping in the air with the dagger a metaphoric dance of death that I call Tandav on the Soul of Shimr..

.Habib Nasser took my camera and shot two frames for posterity.

And I am drenched to the bone and in this condition I shot the angst of the Shias on Chehlum day within the walk way of Rehmatabad Shia cemetery Mazgaon Mumbai.
