I died as a mineral and became a plant,
I died as plant and rose to animal,
I died as animal and I was Man.
Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
Yet once more I shall die as Man, to soar
With angels blest; but even from angelhood
I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
When I have sacrificed my angel-soul,
I shall become what no mind e'er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence

I want to write an erotic poem to her which she has to read with her eyes closed while I lick her feet dry when she comes out of the shower..her dusky soul her musky body..and a teary towel that clings to her flesh in the last throes of death..

The Newspapers Life Is Worse Than The Death of a Daffodil

I am lucky i am just a blog..

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Ansel Adams

Thank you magic eye

Poets Were Born Blind Can Only See In The Dark

i want to kiss her eyelashes when she sleeps the soft pillowy touch of of her silken flesh as my soul intertwines with her soul asleep enter the recesses of her mind dark and deep dance and leap..on the mound of a venus i have a promise to keep..

I shot this temple on my way to work on Ram Navami day, this is a very famous old temple and is always crowded but has a homely atmosphere , for the locals who worship here it is the most gratifying place it does not have commercial crass , its a very clean well maintained temple in Bandra.

I shall now place this lot on the uploader as a batch and go to sleep.

Marziya took this shot on the Nikon D 80 , and she was pretty cool with them, she offered them her packet of biscuits and her pack of wafers that they ate and relished it too.

In the meantime they washed up at my place and wife made tea for them and gave them home made ladoos.

These are two Yugoslavian backpackers travelers I met on Bandra Hill Road they had cycled from Chennai to Mumbai and both were in real bad rotten shape.

This was their first trip to India and my city , they were tired could not find a friendly Internet cafe so I bought them home , they trusted me I had shown them my Press Card and once they reached my house I showed them my credibility as a blogger with my Flickr photo stream on my computer.

They are Damir and Zlatko both musicians , my wife met them too they had hot piping tea , and Marziya met them shot their pictures ..

The had home made hand made ladoos..

They were hunting for a place to crash so they tried to connect with their Facebook friends.

I called up my Brazilian friend Carlyta to help them play some music and earn some bread they are taking a ship from here to Iran and cycle back to Yugoslavia.

I called up other Facebook friends too gave them my contact number they will come to my workplace tomorrow.

They were relieved happy as they have no friends in my city.

They kissed Marziyas hands..

Chinchpokli Bandra Boyz Ram Navami

Most of these boys were tiny kids perhaps toddlers too and some were not born when we came to stay here at Bandra at De Monte Street , we stayed for several years and even after moving out from this area I pass it on my way to work or to my house .

The Chinchpokli Boyz are good devout kids, and the Hindu kids life revolves around Sai Baba of Shirdi whose temple hangs against the backdrop of the A and B hotel wall opposite Gonsalves Wadi as this area is called.

I shoot most of the kids and the garbage open dump that is an insult to civic sense.

I shoot the lady with the stick, the Desi Baidewale Desi Murgiwale Chacha and this is a peaceful area Muslims Hindus Dalits Christians all living in Peace..

My barber is here who charges me Rs 15 to trim my hair.

A lot of fond memories of my own children s growing are connected to this access road of my old house at Kamla Bai Sadan.

Mrs Gomes Mr Fuis and family, this is a gaothan area mind you.

So I took this picture of these kids on Ram Navami day..

Marziya 3 and a half years old too shoots the old lady with the stick and my barber and the Marathi .Manoos.

This evening she shot two Yugoslavian cyclists I bought to my house to use my internet , they could not find an Internet cafe , they had cycled to Mumbai from Chennai both street musicians here in India and Mumbai for the first time on a karmic spiritual trip ..

They are Zamir and Zlatko.. the tasted our hospitality will come again tomorrow.

So as a blogger there is no dearth of stores.. and this is new 4 GB card that I have downloaded from my camera to my computer.

I wrote a few lines of this poem , first time on a piece of paper while visiting Mr Shatrughan Sinhas house dedicated to Punamji I call her Bhabiji but I needed a picture to upload it here on Flickr and so she sent me this image shot by dear friend Yogen Shah.. celebrity photographer.

My humble poem to Mrs Punam Shotgun Sinha..

first she was
a super wife
of a super hero
shatrughan sinha
a super netaji
a super task
she performed
lord ganesha
lalbagh cha raja
gifted success
to sonakshi sinha
named after
goddess parvati
from a girl next door
to a no 1 heroine
the new diva
who has taken
bollywood by storm
the rise of a super
duper heroine
the rise of
a super mom
punam sinha
no 1 going
great guns
in super form
luv kush
on cloud 9
lining up at their
house like
bees in a swarm

first copy sent to her
through sheer humility
bhabiji tujhe salam
jai shri krishan
jai shri ram
