Sada Suhagin

He is not a hijra but an androgynous sect with mind blowing religious view that could be termed as heresy in Islamivc faith, they are married to God in a spiritual sense and are also known as Moosa Suhagins.

He is married has 9 children , he dresses as a woman in shalwar kameez but is male..
He is the Sufi counterpart of Ardh Nari Nareshwar.

I shot him extensively... I was lucky to have met him , the earliest Sada Suhagin I met was at Chor Bazar in Mumbai and sadly mistook him for a Hijra Bawa.. he cleared the ambiguity here at Haji Malang.

Sometimes I am shocked by our laws and system , they dont want urchins on the road so they will penalize them and the parents are laughing all the way to the bank, ready with the next one.. I almost puked ..

he does not like hijras
he should ban them too
babas custodian
narrow minded
its true baba
who welcomes all
dalits muslims hindus
even bloggers
who dont wear slippers
or fancy shoes
a blogger
who documents
the devotion the pain
the sufferings
of the hijra community
gives them their due
the untouchables
of society
neither man
nor woman
but human
like me and you
so this is my
last haji malang
documentary
from here my
soul
the poetry
of my life
i permanently
withdrew
my humility
through
my pictures
you view

held captive
to my
surroundings
to his
holy shrine
i cannot go
so seeing
my desire
into my heart
he flows
his holiness
baba farid
a barefeet
blogger
of mumbai
called firoze
his mind
with several
windows
love devotion
piety a path
of peace
hope harmony
baba shows
like a tree
planted
on my soul
fruits as
wisdom grows
as the winds
from across
the borders blow
heat humidity
transforms
to melting snow
dreams are reality
its faith that
makes it so
so at haji malang
in a photo studio
a photographer
stands still
on his toes
paying
reverence
to two babas
a path a
he willingly
holistically
chose
shah ast hussain
badshah ast hussain
a shia pandit
up close
thoughts of
hope humanity
as a poem froze
on the soul
of a photo
words
he composed
a leopard
in an urban jungle
in man
made clothes

You Need More Than A Camera To Shoot Hijras

You Need More Than A Camera To Shoot Hijras, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 171,913 items / 1,340,363 views

you need passion
you need timing
you need to be astrally
connected
with the androgynous
soul of the hijra
you need the gift
of inner sight
you need the blessings
of your hijra guru
to make hijras
appear before your
minds eyes as
and when you want

yes i shoot hijras with shivas third eye embedded in the soul of my cosmic camera mind
