Gods House Is Not Just Made of Concrete And Bricks

178,505 items / 1,398,946 views

god hardly needs house of concrete and bricks
he lives in the heart of the rich poor and the sick
gods house is burned down bombed by the manic
burning the soul of its very fabric in his name
more people are killed destroyed by the fanatic
god s greatest enemy is the believer of god
not the atheist goddess lover or the gnostic
its only when a natural calamity takes place
we become human forget all thoughts ethnic
catastrophic karmic seismic man more than any devil
or evil spirit by his thoughts his deeds most satanic
it was a picture i shot or a poem my thoughts
began to click,., god is unseen but the most photogenic
all this would not matter much this way or that way
to the mind of the skeptic this picture is dedicated
to my good friend Eric from Toronto photo quick
from a barefeet bejewlled blogger mystic
50% human 50% tantric a shia hindu remix

Bandra Bizarre Road

letters of hope
all drowned and soggy
letters of joy
unfound and foggy
letters of reconciliation
watermarked as boggy
the same letter box where
lifting his spindly
leg piddles her doggy
at bandra bizarre road
where gutters spew
venomous fumes
rains storm drainage
working overtime
whore watering holes that
have become cloggy
local hooch joint nearby
asshole anonymous
all gone groggy
a tadpole finger fucked
by a libidinous fish
before he outgrows
wishfully called
wishy washie froggie

Cybernetic Clown

you cannot
nail him down
on the buzznet clothesline
jumping up and down
with a smile and a frown
naked semi sadhu
clothed in brown
analogous camera mind
prostituted poetry
photography reknown
street children
street woes
on pavements
a pain that wont
simmer down
words fucked
into silence
by her own sound
ass tickling words
finger fucking words
mouth sucking words
in a cerebral godown
in her heart they
seldom touchdown.
emotions on rent
counsel the clown
trade marked
tear jerking
talk of the town

Marathi Manoos

I took his cab to go for some urgent work to Dadar, he was polite presentable and his cab was specklessly clean from within, I sat next to him , my madam sat at the back.

I took this shot before talking to him,he told me his name is Avhad he is from Chembur.

He drove silently and did not talk further even when I told him he had a very hefty and powerful surname.

I took two shots of this good man..he is a Maharastrian by birth and I am a Maharashtrian by Karma and Dharma.

I have been a Mumbaikar since I came here at the age of 1 and my parents both Shia Muslim migrants from Lucknow lie buried at Rehmatabad Shia cemetery holding hands side by side.

My children all three were born in Mumbai and my grand daughter is a Mumbaikar affectinately called Marziya Koli by the koli women of Bandra Bazar fish market in whose laps she grew with promfrets bangda gol rawas and smell of dry bombils .

Marziya understands the Koli language completely..

Last night when India won I took her down amidst firecrackers to shoot the celebrations at Shaheen building Bandra Bazar Road , she took 2 shots without being intimidated by the cheering kids.. I took the rest.

And Marziya as I reflect would be on my waist a few months old as I shot my surroundings.. and all those outings have helped and Marziya has a photo shoot next week by one of the best Mumbai photographers the versatile Pratik Koli and this is sheer coincidence that Pratik hails from the Koli family is one of my best friends among media persons.. we get off like cheese and firecrackers.

The Muslim Beggar Woman's Dillemma

178,499 items / 1,397,996 views

I took her by surprise I was on my way to work and this is a beggar community from Murshidabad West Bengal , a huge bunch that begs in the slums and from the slums moves in to the main road begging from shops.

They mostly dress in black, and most are in pairs, I have not talked to one of them , but its the morbid pain of their lives , they dont have children tagging them like the Mumbai or Kahmiri migrant beggars.

Maybe Mamtaji's success in dislodging the reds might add a bit of color to the blackness of their own stark lives time will tell...

And all those parties that were created for the salvation have done nothing for the common man , their leaders fattened themselves became super rich in a very short space of time and the common Dalit or the poor man is still building statues in the sun.

This is the greatest tragedy of my beloved India.

A single vote added to the kitty of Ministerji made him a rags to riches story,and not that I envy him , he had his kismet emblazoned in gold before he was born on this planet the Gods of Indralok were by his side.

I shoot beggars it kills my boredom so to speak, it adds to the poetry of their life and mine too.

This world where I live in is a pond for thirsty beggars they come from far and wide and this is not a temple town on the banks of a river but this is Bandra a peaceful suburb once a Queen now gone to seed.

And between Bandra West and Bandra East there is a great divide , but it will not last very long as the East is now surpassing the West as the posh Bandra Kurla complex eats into the hearts of slumlands..Garib Nagar is touted as Rs 20000 per squire feet..and these days it hardly has a honorary mention in media..

And it is sad and strange the media talks incessantly of Libya Syria Iran Saudi Arabia Yemen but there will never be a line on the human rights situation in Bahrain..

Bahrain is under Saudi Arabia troopsor the Peninsular force but who cares not even their spineless king who has lost the trust of his people is what it shows..

Muammar Gaddafi is a bad good ruler hardly gives anyone to right bomb an independent country.. we as Indians are lucky or they would have bombed our ruling party for the mess and the scams and corruption galore.

And Iraq after getting rid of Saddam Hussain is gone from bad to worse , whatever Saddam was at least he governed with an iron hand and there were not so many Sunni Shia clashes Muslims killing Muslims ..per se.

And our opposition political party in India is directionless and reminds me of an auction scene at a fishing market at Sassoon can only hear the voice of the highest bidder... who takes the fish and the smell goes away .

I am happy after shooting beggars at least my mind gets a new lease on its imagination and from the same words I recycle the pain of a new poem.

This was posted last night at 2.30 am I am adding text this morning I slept late like almost all cheering Indian did.

Touch And Feel

178,496 items / 1,397,926 views

are poems
that touch and feel
touch and heal
some relationships
are born on the soul
of the karmic wheel
a pledge with hope
you silently seal
feelings a cosmic heart
wont reveal such is life
what you are your
inner soul conceals
layers layers
she tries to unpeel
held in captivity
she cant steal
a silhouette surreal
the pain the sufferings
osmosis of fear
slithering like an eel
through the pinwheel
festered wounds
blood congeals

this is dedicated to a sweet person across the oceans kind and genteel..,,my ideal

Thank You Flickr- Upload once, share everywhere

From Flickr Blog

Today we’re announcing an update to our share functionality to help you make Flickr the hub for your photos on the Internet. If you’re anything like us, you probably have multiple places out there on the Internet where you express yourself. Maybe you use Facebook to connect to your college friends, Twitter for people who share your interests, or your blog as your megaphone to the world. The changes we’re releasing today make it easier to upload once to Flickr and get your photos out to other places you showcase your photos on the web!

Here are some of the features we’re introducing:

* Easier access to share functionality -We’ve integrated options to share your photos as a key part of the photo page, making it easier for you to access and get your photos out to the places you want.

# Previously you could only share your photostreams, sets and groups to your friends and family via email. Now you’ll be able to share those same things to all supported social destinations as well. Stay tuned as we continue to make improvements that allow you to share even more of your life on Flickr!
# We’ve improved flexibility of sharing to Facebook so you can now selectively share individual photos, your sets, groups or photostream. You can also share non-public content with your Facebook friends, so that they can see your latest weekend trip photos without making them public on Flickr. And of course, you can always set up your account so that you automatically share any public uploads directly to your Facebook feed.
# Signed-out users can now also share public and safe photos they see on Flickr directly to their Twitter and Facebook accounts.
# We’ve added Tumblr as a share destination and are retiring native support of some existing blogs (you can always check out the app garden for other ways to get your photos out there on the internet!).
