This is the famous area called Moti Katla where the affluent hijras from Delhi Mumbai stay,the influence of Khwajah Gharib Nawaz is felt by the Hijras from Delhi Kolkatta and Mumbai and nearby places in the northern states including Pakistan and Bangladesh.

They come in hordes t renew their spiritual pledge with him dancing away into the Holy Shrine with their Sandal processions floral tributes and chaddar offerings.

Stray Dogs of Ajmer

Stray Dogs of Ajmer, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. Sometimes I bitterly wonder whose life is better the dregs of human life on the dark streets of despair or stray dogs overrated over loved by animal lovers

Sometimes I really wonder if animal lovers are really human lovers too, the rich buy pedigree dogs costing a bomb , but wont adopt a human child in its place.

These are personal thoughts I kept Alsatian dogs and Persian cats , but stopped keeping animals in domestic captivity completely

I have seen rich people feed crows , cats dogs while the poor beggar child watches from afar.

I came to the conclusion all this animal charity business is a fucked farce at the expense of unending human sorrow.

I maybe wrong but like I said these are my thoughts .

Its nice to love animals take care of them but spare a glance towards the human cub too..if he bites you need not take 14 injections, and he rarely bites he is born without teeth..

spiritual diversity
yet supreme
land of ram and rahim
a path of peace
not extreme
a mortgaged soul
to redeem
holding the khwajah
in high esteem
what you are
runs in your
as you flow
from one world
to another world
in a pipe dream
you dont lose steam
fraction of a second
a change of theme
karmic sorrow
that loves to scheme
cacophonous shouts
silent screams
