I saw her on all fours and this was my first shot and I walked behind her watching the degradation of much touted humanity and womanhood.
And this is a common sight during the Urus of Khwajah Gharib Nawaz Ajmer Sharif.
Nobody even gives a second look, and all around her is a sea of beggars , they have all come here to ingratiate themselves , they will place floral tributes worth thousands of rupees , chaddar , to show their love for the Holy Saint.
In the two Deghs or vessels in the Holy Shrine they will offer gold silver, money , but hardly will they offer this beggar woman a rupee or two.
Such is the nature of selfish man , he only grovels for himself or his family.
And poets like me shoot them as the poetry of life gone awry, beggar pictures upsets the fucked somnolent consciousness of society..nothing more nothing less.
But they do not see the degradation of human life the ignominy of womanhood.
They wont ever see it at all...we wake them up with our pictures , and for the record this photo blogger who walks barefeet does not sell his pictures.
He sold his his prime used telly lens Nikon AF 80/200 2.8 ED for Rs 15000 , to make this trip to Ajmer and to share with you a world through the poetry of life.
22 GB memory card of Hijra despair remorse and the beggardom at Ajmer.
I have a profile page at Flickr that clearly states I wont add a contact with incomplete profile details or with porn on their photo stream or favorites , this tasteless pictures are made visible to me as the person on the other end adds me as friend or family.
And I am not into porn or human genitalia but one sided contacts keep adding me I have just deleted 90 of them and it is a tedious task unlike Facebook where you merely Block the person , at Flickr you have to go to the profile page block him , wait for the next step thereby wasting my precious blogging time.
A sample of the block page at Flickr
When you choose to block someone, it means they:
* Can't comment on your photos
(All comments on your photos made by them are deleted)
* Can't comment on your sets
(All comments on your sets made by them are deleted)
* Are removed as your contact, and you are removed as theirs
(They can't add you as a contact again)
* Can't add your photos as favorites anymore
(Any of your photos marked as their favorites are removed)
* Can't add your photos to galleries
(Any of your photos added to their galleries are removed)
* Can't blog your photos
* Can't add notes or tags
* Can't add you to photos
* Can't send you FlickrMail
Note: While the block itself will occur immediately, removal of comments and favorites can take up to several hours (though hopefully not that long!).
Please confirm that you're sure you want to block ?????
Or return to the list of contacts you are blocking.
I have removed the name of the person I blocked not wanting to hurt his sentiments.
But it beats me they will never read my disclaimer on my Profile page which states the following.
Unauthorized use or reproduction of my pictures or text for any reason is prohibited ...
PLEASE DONT ADD ME AS A CONTACT IF YOU ARE INTO PORN SEMI PORN , KINKY GROUPS I AM NOT INTERESTED IN BEING A POSTER BOY ON YOUR LIST OF FRIENDS EVEN IF IT IS ONE SIDED FROM YOUR END- I WILL BLOCK YOU IMMEDIATELY ..PLEASE RESPECT MY RIGHT OF PRIVACY..AS I RESPECT YOURS..
DO NOT ADD ME AS A CONTACT if you have tasteless masturbationally self-indulgent crap on your page!..find someone of your own kind dont subject me to blocking you - which I will if I see my thumbnail on your contacts page.
PLEASE DONT SEND ME INVITATIONS FOR GROUPS..I DONT BELONG TO GROUPS HERE OR AT FACEBOOK OR ELSEWHERE
I WILL BLOCK ONE SIDED CONTACTS THAT HAVE ADDED ME WITHOUT THEIR PROFILE OR AVATAR OR THOSE INTO KINKY GROUPS..PORN ETC..
I HAVE BLOCKED 425 SUCH CONTACTS..
The greatest problem of One Sided Contacts at Flickr they dont disappear if you delete them, your thumbnail will show on their photo steam , thereby
adding embarrassment to curiosity.
Because Flickr is trying to be the poor mans Facebook with respect to pictures they condone this , madness that is one big pain in the rectum of remorse.
And it hits me hard I type with a single finger due to permanent right hand , imagine my agony..if there was merely one step in blocking it would not matter at all.
But the number of steps drives me crazy to say the least.
What bugs me is how can Flickr a fabulous site allow people to become members without valid identification or profiles.
And I hope with all the changes on the new Flickr page in the future this aspect s taken as my feedback.
I am still protesting against the enabling of Comment Moderation , so I have strangled my comment box for good.
Mind you I miss comments from my old friends at Flickr but than those who shit hate comments on my controversial religion and street pictures are in a large majority.
And because I want you to sincerely read this I have taken the help of Raveena Hijda the Rare Beauty and Seductress and the Hijra Goddess of Ajmer.
