Most of my lenses suffered imminent death as I walked on fire during a Moharam event called Ag Ka Matam and the other being blood that percolated into my lens when I cut my head with a sword during Ashura Chehlum Moharam rituals I perform twice a year in Mumbai or wherever I celebrate Moharam as a Shia and a photographer.
