when the red
citadel of illusions
will fall giving hope
to the beggars
of murshidabad
who beg in mumbai
one and all
when hon Mamtaji
on the hallowed
CM 's throne
will be installed
they will find
new jobs
security
windfall
hope and humanity
for big and small
for their rights
they wont
have to grovel
they wont
have to crawl
durga's incantations
the muezzins call

They Attack Jesus During Lent

behave
get off
the road
you are
a nuisance
to society
a message
through
a municipal
circular sent
with a malicious
intent breaking
his crosses
hurting his people
a thought to vent
filled with contempt
to heal to
transplant him
to safer
surroundings
no attempt
without the Jesuits
the convent schools
their humility
their sound education
our lives would
have been unkempt

Jesus Is Having a Rough Time In Mumbai

they want him
off the roads
no more crosses
no more grottos
so on his
frail shoulders
another load
the heart bleeds
the soul explodes
treated like
a hawker
a criminal
a charge sheeter
jesus in the dock
through my web log
his pain uploads
while the corrupt
the scamsters
get a new lease
on life go
scott free
woes of
a worldly abode
a poetic pause
a cinematic
moment
demistfying
the da vinci code

i beg for pictures
poet a beggar
with a camera
as a beggar bowl
barefeet
capturing
pain horrible
memories
bitter and sweet
from the flames
of a fire fate
they could
not cheat
memories die
do not delete
dusk to dawn
humidity and heat
from facebook to flickr
on the wings of a tweet
words within words
words i repeat
poetry of life
composed
on a cybernetic
tempestuous
toilet seat
flushed emotions
moving pictures
as and when
stealthily meet
as a blog
held captive
in a heartbeat

Ashok Punwani and I go a long way back he was my senior but we were both prefects and he was polished cultured and the most nattily dressed student of our school Michelle Obama Holy Name High School ..


He stayed at Shangrila Colaba very close to my earliest memories of childhood I began my education at Private European School and till date have never forgotten the English teachers Mrs E Lester Mrs Marjorie Miss June ..They were as white as white can be.

Later in life I met Ashok almost 20 years back we were neighbors for a short while at Kewal Kamal 28 road Bandra.

And here when we met again at Bandra Hill Road I asked a passerby to take this shot for posterity.
