I have fast forwarded this photo to present times as there was a request from a New York Art Gallery for displaying of this and another image to showcase the history of African diaspora.

I normally shoot pictures as I see them , I am not governed by editorial constrains, or saleability ,I dont sell or share my pictures normally, I have placed a few pictures at Red Bubble simply to be able to upgrade to a new camera, .

My cameras die faster as I shoot blood Moharam , cut my head so my own blood lodges in my camera housing, I shoot Hindu festivals on the streets and the over generous sprinkling of gulal or vermilion too mixes with my Shia blood so I call myself a Shia Hindu should not shock you as poets interpretation of pain that I shoot.


This year I could not shoot the Makhdhoom Shah Baba Police Sandal as my head was bleeding after my Ashura kama matam in Chennai and Moharam mou…

I Am A Hardcore Fan of Jalal Mamu

I Am A Hardcore Fan of Jalal Mamu, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 168,818 items / 1,314,925 views

Jalal Mamu from Byculla is one of the greatest matamdars in the same leauge as Ali Shah, his sword matam is simply out of the world and his zanjir matam too.

He has the most mellifluous voice and recites the Busheri Matam Noha nonstop without ever tiring.

Jalal Mamu is humble as they come absolutely low profile but a Mauliee all the same.

A Brief History of Imam Hassan’s Life
The Son of the Prophet
Imam Hassan Mujtaba (as) was the second Imam. He and his brother Imam Hussein were the two sons of Amir al-mu"minin Ali and Hadhrat Fatimah, the daughter of the Prophet. Many times the Prophet had said,"Hassan and Hussein are my children". Because of these same words Ali would say to his other children, "You are my children and Hasan and Hussein are the children of the Prophet."
