The Hallauris And Athvi Juloos Govandi

I shot this thanks to a friend Kasim Hallauri of Gonsalves Wadi Bandra.
Athvi is the end of 2 month eight days of Shia Moharam mourning the next day the Shias celebrate 9 Rabilawal or Eid E Zehra mother of all Eids that is commemorated cursing the oppressors and the enemies of Ahle Bayt.

I have shot this important memorable segment in Lucknow and Mehmoodabad too.

However of late for several years I have been shooting this Athvi segment at Malvani Malad hosted by Advocate Anwar Hussain a devout Shia momin.

The Hallauris are Syeds from North India Uttar Pradesh, artistic by temperament , good at carpentry and great poets reciters of marsiyas, the Hallauri hand matam on the streets of Moharam during Ashura and Chehlum is is passionate in its cry for Ya Hussain.

Mohsin Hallauri is a very passionate devout Kama and sword matamdar of Bandra.

The Hallauris are very fair colored eyes and a very handsome race of Shia Muslims owing their genealogy to the Holy Family..
