tum kya
sochti ho
yeh sochta
hoon main
zinda lash hoon
kabr main
kafan nochta
hoon main
mitti aur khaq
ko seene se
dabochta
hoon main
apne mare
hue hathon se
kabr ka jigar
kharochta
hoon main

Maein Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya

Most of my pictures are odds ends bits of fragmented broken glass pieces of life..I dont plan pictures I shoot from moving rickshas cabs I dont have wheels I walk barefeet shoot pictures as pathos poetry of life.

Because of a diabetic leg injury I have forced my feet in slippers my soul of course is wild restless like a speeding wave it lashes my consciousness that is awake when it is sleep..

I dont know how to dance but I do the kaif and the kaif or the Sufi trance without drugs afim , charas or ganja takes me beyond the spectrum of my imagination I do a whirring kaif with my camera and than lose consciousness banging my head on concrete but my camera more shrewder than me saves itself from further damage.

When I saw him moving on the road for me it was a dance serpentine and I shot it as such..and I was reminded of the old Hindi song..old songs were a stap…

sher ki tarah
ghurrati ho
phir bheegi
billi ban jati ho
roti ho
muskurati ho
ghar bulakar
marke
bhagati ho
kyon
deactivate
ho jati ho

shola shabnam
mera sar par
barsati hi


mere khatah
sirf yeh
ke main tumhe
chathoo hoon
tum kisi
aur ko
chahti ho

latoo
ki
trah
nachati ho
na kehna
par kya kya
kehjati ho

Unke dil se raste
pe kabadi ke hath
pheka hua pyar hoon..
main ek befuzool lamha
main jeet aur main har hoon
tuta hua mukdha
tuta hua sitar hoon
nam se kuch bhi
pukariye main to
intezar hoon
gardish ke sukhe
pholoon ki tarah
ujda hua chaman
ek tooti hiu
diwar hoon

pinjare ke panchhi re, tera dadr na jaane koe (2)

kaha na sake tu, apani kahani
teri bhi panchhee, kya zindagaani re
vidhi ne teri katha likhi aansu mein kalam duboe
tera dard ...

chupake chupake, rone vaale
rakhana chhupaake, dil ke chhale re
ye patthar ka desh hain pagale, yahaan koi na tera hoy
tera dard ...

Mere Naamuraad Junoon Ka Hai Ilaaj Koi To Maut Hai Jo Dava Ke Naam Pe Zehar De Usi Chaaraagar Ki Talaash Hai

Bahut Kathin Hai Dagar Panghat Ki Ab Kya Bhar Laun Maein Jamuna Se Matki

Zehar Bhi Dete Hain To Kehte Hain Ki Peena Hoga Jab Maein Peeta Hoon To Kehten Hai Ki Marta Bhi Nahin, Jab Maein Marta Hoon To Kehte Hain Ki Jeena Hoga

neta tumhari
bajata hai
tum marwate ho
aur kehte ho
system ki jai ho
thoda aur meri lo
jitne chahe ghaso
mujh ko jeene do
tumhari gand
par 5 sal ka rubber
stamp jo laga ho
bhukto
tumhari
ladaie dusre laden
tum chhakon
se kya ham ho
hijde ki tarah
taliyan
marke zinda raho
main to hijda hoon
kya tum
nahi
hijde ho

I meet them on Watefield Road and they all know me, but they dont know my connection with the hijra community as they are low in the hierarchy, they work from one day to the next, no Haji Malang no Ajmer Sharif.

But they are hardcore believers followers Lord Balaji and their leader is Lakshmi, this is not the hijra icon .. she is a poor hijra soul and I have known Lakshmi for many years , she gave me her mobile number too I misplaced it.

She is the one who keeps inviting me to her shanty at Sion Daravi, I might one day take her up on that offer.

For Lakshmi I am a religious man a kind of Guru like her so she sees me in a different light different perspective.

When the fire took place at Nargis Dutt Nagar , a few years back I bought a lot of second hand good quality sarees from the flea market near Chor Bazar known as Kapda Bazar on Duncan Street for an…

Grapes Gone Sour

the ruling party
the opposition party
are like reliance energy
tata power
grapes gone sour
grapes gone sour

the common man
caught in maze
in thunder and shower
a new scam unfolds
cvc cwg 2 g scam
adarsh tower
every second
every hour
grapes gone sour
grapes gone sour


every kind
of corrupted
seedling plant
tree bearing
ill gotten loot
in the PMs bower
that he is not aware
politics of sharing
politics of compulsion
a scourge on the soul
of democracy hovers
a new scam flowers
a new scam flowers
grapes gone sour
grapes gone sour

unaware
of the arc lights
the camera glare
two dreamers
on wings of fancy
a moment bare
synchronicity of
sound
collectively
share
spontaneity of
screams
of clapping
hands
moving chairs
kailash kher
sapna
bhavnani
both
lost in a drop
of an ocean
unusual pair
one who with
vocal chords
eternity dares
a dimpled damsel
mad o wot
poetically
cuts
celebrity hair

gunjega
melody rare
god is the
essence
of beauty
on wings
of prayer
a poetic
thought

nowhere

Didn't I tell you?
They will accuse you of all the wrongdoings,
they will call you ugly names,
they will make you forget
it is me, who is the source of your happiness.

The second part of the Anna Hazare Victory celebration now moved to Gateway of India for the victory lap and candle march..the enthusiasm of the people was overwhelming, I had reached earlier but those that had fasted with Anna Hazare Saab at Azad Maidan were to arrive walking with candles in their hands , and it is quite a distance.
