Dargah of the Holy Saint Makdhoom Shah Baba Mahim

Waiting to pay tribute to Holy Saint Makdhoom Shah Baba

As these pictures were shot on the last day of the Mahim Makdhoom Shah Baba Urus , all in a few hours , a lot of people were surprised to see me at the Dargah, they thought I was out of India .

I used to visit the Dhuni at the back of the Mahim dargah every year regularly in the past , , so I was a known fixture during the Urus but this year I was not in good health so kept away, but yes the Holy Saint called me too , and I was here, with my good friend Sakib the florist.

Guys at the Dhuni were happy to see me, and much has changed most of the old faces have disappeared , my good friend Barsati Baba who was the Murshad last year had to give his Gaddi to a new Murshad Sarkar Ali Baba from Hyderabad.

I gave money to the Murshad to buy milk for tea , the tea made on the Holy fire of the Dhuni is out of this world a lot of butter is added in the tea.

Food or Niyaz too is cooked on the holy fire.

I shot a lot of pictures than moved out , I did not shoot the possessed ladies , and I came out of the Mahim dargah, shot the Food Gully and the Kashmiri beggars.From here I reached the Dargah of Fakhruddin Baba and shot a few sandals.

Last night I shot the Fakhruddin Shah Baba sandal too.

The Calisthenics of Shia Pain

The Sounds of Silence Of The Soul

he sent me a message
from across the seas
wanting to know
what i feel
when i cut
my head '
layers and layers
of a pain called
ghame hussain
i peel
poetic moments
of my ancestry i steal
on a promised land
i kneel it is karbala
which is every land
my cosmic consciousness
reveals my karmic fate seals
i am a hindu shia born
in the holy waters of
the land of the ganges
i am not an arab
or a persian
my birthright
i shall never conceal
brahma vishnu mahadev
the sound of om
living side by side
as my blood congeals
hussainiyat my
souls only ideal
i am a wheel
within a wheel
of a wheel

as it urinates
on the soul of yazeed
lust for power
only greed
common sense
he did not heed
son of a poisonous
incestuous evil seed
stalk of a withering weed
bar lanat yazeed
be shumar lanat yazeed

behte hue khoon
main rang jate hain
waqt ko karbala

keh late hain
apka naya sal
apko mubarak
ham apna naya sal
is tarah manate hain

every land is karbala
everyday is ashura
apko yad dilate hain

hum hindu shia hain
khoon mey nahate hain

Har Dil Pe Naqsh Hai Nam e Hussain

Har dil pe naqash hai naam-e-hussain
Kon bhula sakta hai shadat-e-hussain
Nasha-e-iqtedar mein bhool gaya yazeed
Nawasa-e-Rasool hai ye hussein jung iqtedar ki na the magar sachayi ki
Bari shaan se haider ke sajday ko poora karne gaya hussain
Aasman ro para zameen hil gayi
Bray itemenan jab sajday mein gaya hussain shikast to mukadar the yazeed ka
Maktal mein bhi hui fateh-e-hussain
