The Barefeet Blogger of Mumbai, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. I could not bear the heat , I was on a empty stomach, shooting barefeet without food or drink. The humidity continued punishing me I was totally drenched I removed my t shirt and shot the last part of the Maryamma procession going towards the Mandir at Macchimar Colny Mahim...
I did not complete the stint , an important one of removing the rods and the hooks almost the same way they were inserted.
And I was lucky that Ganesh the guy who shoots this event shot me too, Ganesh shoots for people who want these important pictures of the piercing and the long trek back to the temple from Beach tpo be taken at a nominal rate per copy.
He has his studio in Dharavi..He is a Tamil photographer .
