reflected on the
soul of remorse
of a poet firoze
tears on poetry
a pain of a poet
only god knows
on a parched soil
as dead weeds
as they come
of a rose
the endless path
for a source

As of now I have posted over 350 pictures of the Raja of Kings Circle Lord GSB Ganesha shot day before yesterday .
Such was the spiritual euphoria I could not stop shooting pictures were happening every second all around me.
And i you are as crazy about capturing divinity in light and shade than GSB Seval Mandal is the right place to shoot and be shot by time and space too.
And though my life problems have escalated I steal time fom work to shoot this as my core thesis in a blog to promote Hindu Muslim amity tolerance and mutual coexistence within the framework of the country of my life my birth India my motherland.
I call this wave of thought Hope and Hindutva a Message of Peace and Humanity.,,and not just Lord GSB Ganesha but Lal Bagh Chya Raja as sets collections housed at my photostream on Flickr.com

I dont do this for money fame , bloggers like mee are not even mentioned by erstwhile media ..Muslims like me would be mentioned if we slit a childs throat or rape a minor or are caught as suspects for terrorism or steal money from the national treasury or throw shoes on leaders who have killed more people by watching a city burn raped pillaged ..the show must go on...
And the soul of Humanity has gone to sleep as Kashmir bleeds ...the body count goes on and the CM holds on to his blood tainted Chair of Thorns.
So I found as a 58 year old nationalist Indian the flip side of reality that I blog as a street photographer .
Otherwise good Muslims are a lost tribe in the minds of a biased and racist prone media is how I see it, good Muslims or bad Muslims we are Indians.
Good and bad is the product of what you inherited at birth , through your surroundings..to be bad takes a second to be good is a lifetime achievement.
I have never seen myself only as a Muslim , I think I am as much a Hindu as you are a Muslim as Indians we are above all this or our respective religiosity.
My religion may be based in an Arab world but my definition of faith is embedded as Islam on the Indian soul of my consciousness .
So I shoot all religiosity faith and Humanity is the core to any religions survival and you cant be human if you are not human to others ..
Being a poet I poetize my pictures and what can be greater than Hope on the Wings of Prayer touching him through service to the poor the needy the homeless and the hopeless.
And I am a street photographer showing the walks of life of the human flesh and the soul,,
After this lot gets over I will post the Mount Mary Fair 2010 at Flickr.
