TWITTER SUCKS

TWITTER SUCKS, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 171,573 items / 1,336,891 views


Trying to change a profile picture at twitter
is like reliving a fuckin nightmare..
every effort attempt gives me the scare dear biz stone
this is totally unfair a testicular tragedy a circle
sodomized by a square into an unknown zone
dreamless seamlessly I stare wondering whether
you guys do really care twitter is over capacity
at cross hair a poetic pandemonium my soul I bare
cross blogging from flickr my world I share
my bloggers soul caught in a cybernetic snare

Her name is Balan...
She is from Surat Gujrat .
She was with her Guru .

I could have gone on shooting her but she was not too comfortable with my picture taking someone had warned her I was from the Press and I would write wrong things about her.

And I do wear a Press Card round my neck just as a safety measure though I hardly need it at Haji Malang as almost everyone knows me my intentions and my passion for shooting hijras.

I shoot the hijras or the Holy Shrine and its people and surroundings and some rituals .

I walk a lot and when I say lot I mean hell of a lot after coming back from Haji Malang a mountain that I walked up and down barefeet , I have been in great pain, I am a diabetic I doont take my regular diabetic medicine on such trips..I used to be on the insulin I stopped after moving to another doctor.

Back home I had my feet massaged including my body by…

Father Forgive Me I Have Sinned

Father Forgive Me I Have Sinned, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 171,432 items / 1,335,759 views

my hopes
on her drying
hopes
i pinned
i accidentally
fell in love
with a transvestite
from across
the border
nubile
voluptuous
thick skinned
chubby
double chinned
pendulous posterior
tits conjoined twins
like two pectoral fins
bedding her was
a nightmare
one and only
deadly sin
neither man
nor woman
only a whore
from within
from where
do i begin
sometimes out
sometimes in
her moans
like silent sounds
of corrugated tin
a facebook encounter
to my fucked chagrin
faded memories
the ignore button
that swept
me into her
recycling bin
hooron ki hoor
jannat ki pari
a blast minus
the safety pin

the transvestites tale never ends whether you lose you actually never win
a smirk minus a grin .....my head leg before wicket by her rolling pin

Sometimes I Shoot Myself To Stay Alive

And This Is Hope Wanting Change

The Beggar Hijras of Bandra Bazar Road

She grumbles each time I take her picture ..why I take her picture and will it change her life is what she keeps telling me..

Frankly her life wont change at all she was born a man will die a hijra standing erect in her grave period.

She cannot change the hands of the clock so she will be begging till she dies such is her fate I cant change it nor can she.

And though I shoot some of the prettiest hijras in the world this hijra is the one my beggar soul endears too, she and her kind I meet at traffic signals and elsewhere .

I am well known by this lot of hijras they think I am mad ..they are almost right.. I am mad in a very sane world.

Or why would I be spending 3/4 of my life on the internet without without a profit or a penny gain.

And I am not selling any wares or promoting my next book as a matter of fact publihers in India would not touch me with a barge pole.

So…

This is Mumbai and money and hafta talks and whatever assurance the PM gives the nation corruption will never go it is the bedrock of survival in politics.. democracy is based on corruption of the people by the people and for the people.


Cops bureaucracy every agency has a black sheep who loves green fodder .. land grabbing..

So my camera the third of Shiva sees the here and the hereafter too.

I Take A Break From Haji Malang

I Take A Break From Haji Malang, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 171,281 items / 1,335,202 views

These are pictures street photography from a cab, I shot them before I left for Haji Malang and my mind set is that of a street photographer , my mind is winding street too filled with memories of another day.


My Haji Malang set has another 16 GB of pictures I shall upload after this lot..

My grand daughter is still out of Mumbai and its hard she was my mainstay and my only earnest photo disciple.

Beggars at Bandra keep asking for her I speak to her on the phone but she is very monosyllabic and a bad conversationalist.

I met a lot of young kids at Haji Malang who approached me and said they liked my pictures it was a nice feeling and it touched the chord of my humility.

And the internet is a very powerful tool besides toppling the seat from under the asses of dictators and feudal lords and the tide has turned against them and the US that holds the strings of these puppets…

Madhu Hijra Fakir

Madhu Hijra Fakir, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 171,271 items / 1,335,047 views

In my life I have met all kinds of hijra transgener ardh nari nareshwars sada suhagins hijra rafaees eunuch children but Madhu Hijra beats them all with her knowledge her wit her wisdom, her motto as a fakir or mendicant jo de bismillah jo na de ilallaallah.


I met her at Gopal Hajis house at Haji Malang she has tatoos all over her body and is bare breasted most of the times.

She is a face reader mind reader and and a shaman.

She is a tantrik too.

She looked into my eyes annd said it is an ocean of pain bleeding red .. I answered her politely in all humility..It is Ghame Hussain its source is in Karbala.

She said you have come a long way ..yes I told her through a rough urban terrain.

She kept silent while I shot these few frames and she is one of those Hijras I can shoot without stopping ..and this includes Khushi Laxmi Narayan Tripathi Heena and Raveena and Naina.

I include Megha too …
