doston ka dost
dushman o ka
jani dushman
nam hai inka KRK
inse jo jalte hain
woh rahte hain darke
na idhar ke na udharke
dost ke liye
yeh jan bhi de denge
big boss ke ghar main
yeh rehte the
bindas akadke
enhe dekhkar sab
choriyon ka
dil dhad ke dil dhad ke
bollywood ke one and only
ek SRK ek KRK

my new poem dedicated to Kamaal saab

HIV AIDS Children And Creativity

178,448 items / 1,396,032 views


Children who have lost parents to HIV/AIDS are not only just as deserving of an education as any other children, but they may need that education even more. Being part of a school environment will prepare them for the future, while helping to remove the stigma and discrimination unfortunately associated with AIDS.
-- Harry Belafonte

I was invited by a very dear friend to see the creative works of children living in an atmosphere of AIDS , either they have it or it in some cases their parents are infected , I did not shoot their pictures though they all gathered around me seeing me in my bejeweled attire, some of them kept holding my hands and rings..this was the first time I was meeting these special kids in my life and because of the stigma attached to this scourge of a disease I am happy through their work you will see and understand them better.


I was told a lot of people did shoot these kids but misused their pictures for their own vested interests , I am an avid photographer I shoot beggar kids but here the issue is very sensitive and I am not mentioning the organization or the place where I shot these pictures.

I saw dreams in their eyes , and I saw a glimmer of hope I met two young girls both want to be management students and they behaved normal unhindered by their sufferings or the sufferings of their parents or family members.

These are silent pictures and they tell a story of human pain , pain is the only emotion that connects one person with another as human beings.. through their pictures you can interpret myriads of thoughts in color and the darkness of their lives.

I am indeed happy that I was able to shoot their work their joyous creativity and share it with all of you...

This Is A Poet Hung Upside Down In The Bedroom ..of a Transvestite

178,447 items / 1,395,681 views

we had a fight
she clubbed me
because she is taller
than me voluptuous
in height she got upset
she is from lahore
my sweet transvestite
i told her while making love
accidentally that india
will beat the pakistanis
in a bitter fight at mohali
where our luck
would be shining bright
this is what she did to me
hung me up all night
beat me black blue and white
why for a match of cricket
do we lose our sight
i cant understand
get me right
two countries
that even god cant unite
she left me this way
took the next flight
to mohali my poetic plight
born a dreamer
a visionary
without insight
pain my sweet
bitter birthright
i have decided
to patch up
with her no more
cockfights
be more polite
no match fixing
in a love ill starred
no respite
she is a
non believer
i am a shiite

optional title
the transvestites tale never ends ...airtight

my dear friend
fr lawrie serrao

he did emboss
i shoot all religion
faith people
culture
on my poets
consciousness
seamlessly
crisscrossed
glory and gloss
hope humility
heavenly ethos
away from
all human
madness
political chaos


Fr Lariwe encouraged me to be an avid photographer I honed my skills shooting his school St Peter Church , he always invited me to his Jesuit celebrations , after he left for St Xaviers , I lost a very good patron of the Arts , even today Father invites me to his birthdays..though he never ages is not the crux of his birthday or this blog.

I was introduced to Fr Lawrie by the inimitable bundle of creative joy called Darryl of Peace Haven..

We sincerely hope and pray that he once again returns to our St Peters Parish...St Stanislaus school to enroll my grandson.. who not yet born awaits in the wings..Marziya my grand daughter could not make it ...she joined Apostolic Carmel Convent instead..

But she shoots St Peter Church with my camera is a genetic aberration that got corrected through a camera lens.

The Marian Sewa Foundation organized the 23 All Mumbai Walking Pilgrimage from Cross Maidan to Mount Mary.. the walk was flagged by Cardinal Oswald Gracias on Saturday 10.45 PM..

The walkers reached Bandra at 4 am...on Sunday and there was mass at 5.45 am by His Lordship Bishop Penha.

I walked barefeet and shot the walk from Bandra Reclamation to Mount Mary and back..

This is my humble tribute as a blogger to the Christian community of Mumbai..

he the snotty sanctimonious
fucked ash-hole
had this to say
why do you shoot such pictures
of dirty scums beggars human stray
cant you delete them that once
and for all they will go away
cant you shoot nice pleasing pictures
of sunrise sunsets rainbows
children at play cant you
shoot eternally happy things
like we see in the newspapers
everyday
mumbai mirror
midday
hindustan times
dna
oh please stop
shooting crap
as photo blogs
spoil our day
we dont mind hijras
but cant you
show some more skin
some more tits
or even nude hijras
something that
is not cliche
or the red light area
whores picking up guys
would be a nice
pictorial essay
so please dont shoot
muslim beggar women
urchins kids spoil
the name of our country
he conveyed
leaving me blank
with his tirade
as he disappeared
into the crowds
through the gates of
the shopping arcade
