One of the owners of Lucky Hotel Bandra Safar Ali Bhai is a Maulaiee a devoted Shia and humility Iranian but a pucca Indian Safar Ali Bhai is mostly at the mosque during prayer time and walks from his hotel and back from the Shia Mosque at Bandra Bazar.

the homeless
will continue
living out their
lives starting
from scratch
if i may say so
the crime branch
will try to find
out the cause
as time flows
houses make
shift tents
rows and rows
from the ashes
the dying spirit
of a people arose
pain like weeds
on the soul of our
beloved city grows
who lit the fire
someone knows
a supari a contract
a hypothetical
poetic and prose
adding to misery
the peoples woes
sometimes your best
friends can be your
worst enemies
your foes
to the path
god chose
when the rains come
some more fateful blows
who cares if the child begs
for him his school a chapter closed

My Camera Should Not Be Held Responsible For Why I Shoot What I Shoot

Sundar Vetkar has a camera clinic beneath the stairs and only 3 people can be accommodated at any given time including the client his assistant and himself. and this is prime space in Fort Mumbai.. off Bora Bazar .

When my camera gives me trouble I give it to him , and he charges me a very nominal amount from what is charged in the market the reason he says in his words ..Firozebhai your camera is a healing tool you shoot humanity I cant charge you , you dont make money through your can I charge you.

I force money into his refusing hands I dont want to dent my self respect or his.

So there are good people in the camera trade and there are others who rape you in the name of friendship with your clothes on.. and the one I am referring to knows this already I have stopped going to his shop completely.

The Jewel in The Crown of Indian Railways ..The Hijras

175,419 items / 1,366,365 views

without the hijras on the trains
train travel would be such a bore
they add color to dull surroundings
clapping their hands some more
you certainly cannot escape them
they are part of your karmic journey
pay them before you hit the floor
if they were given jobs in the railways
as ticket collectors railway cops
i think there would be less corruption
a thought for mamtaji honor dignity
to the railways the hijras would restore
but than on another level if the hijras
ran this country scams would be
shown the door progress peace
golden times like never before
we would not be raped sodomized
by a system as we snore
no CWG no 2G spectrum
no adarsh no other bilious
monstrosity peace prosperity
good rapport utopian poetic
a possibility we must
certainly not ignore
