she is a
of my mind
perhaps an
in a dreamy
like petals
of a rose
in the book
of my heart
i press
she says no
she wont say yes
a poetic plea
i cannot stress
a stone
in the wilderness
a game of chess
pawned to her
inner being
my life in a mess
triple optics reflex
a poet hungry
over sexed
Oedipus Rex
on her shores
ship wrecked
by her lips
the nape
of her neck
her dewy eyes
kohl laden
her tweets
she protects
the poet
she neglects
a poet
she subjects
on a blog
which she
as a mere
street object
a picture
some text
a love
gone sour
in the wrong

The Saddest Man In Bandra Bazar Fayaz Onionwala

The Saddest Man In Bandra Bazar Fayaz Onionwala, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 180,946 items / 1,425,576 views

His kingdom has come crashing down , his life is in tatters , his pillar of support is gone..his brother Rashid Habib Shaikh 42 a very nice polite simple congenial lad was found dead in mysterious circumstances , a crime of passion , betrayal guilt, and powerful people involved and he is too small to fight the matrix of evil he told me when I took this picture of him in his doomed shop...

You can read the entire story beautifully sensitively penned by Syed Roshan in Sunday Midday April 17 2011..

All Fayaz wants is the truth of his brothers death to come out in the open and if there was a conspiracy than the alleged culprits should be booked and bought to justice.

He hopes and prays to Allah and the entire Bazar Road community Corporator Rahebar Khan are supporting him and his bereaved family... in testing times of loss and disillusionment.

Meaning of whetting. ... a stone for sharpening the blades of knives etc.

as the knifes blade
moves around
its cosmic neck
it lets out a moan
the poetry
the pain
the pathos
of a whetting stone
in love
with a double
edged knife
as it cuts
through his
he groans
a knife
that will
never be his
he can
never own
she loves
him in a
strange kind
of way
her conceit
high flown
a pain
a longing
a desire
that has grown
shades of guilt
a silence
in muted tones
two disjointed souls
via mobile phone
in his life
the windowpanes
she hit
him like a cyclone
she gives him
miserly on loan
a turquoise
by her moonstone
her mound of venus
his grave his tombstone
a princess of pashtunwali
who lives in an unknown zone
a beggar poet suicidal death prone

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Hanuman, the Vanara god, widely venerated throughout India especially in North India. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the Shukla Paksha, during the month of Chaitra ( the Chaitra Pournimaa )

Meaning: Lord Hanuman is the messenger of Lord Rama. His pace is as rapid as the wind and as quick as the mind. Hanuman has constrained his sense organs. He is the most intelligent among the intelligent ones. Hanuman is the son of Vayu (Pawan) and the chief of the monkey tribe. We surrender ourselves to Lord Hanuman

He is a Vanara who helped Lord Rama (an avatar of Vishnu) in rescuing his wife Sita from Ravana, the king of Lanka. Hanuman was born to Anjana, a female Vanara, and Vayu (the lord of wind). Hanuman is also considered as the incaranation of Shiva or reflection of Shiva. Hanuman also assumes Panchamukha to save Rama and Lakshmana from asuras.Every Face of Sri Panchamukha Hanuman has significance ?Sri Hanuman faces east. He grants purity of mind and success. The Narasimha faces south. He grants victory and fearlessness. The west facing Garuda removes black magic and poisons. The north facing Varaha, showers prosperity, wealth. The Hayagriva mukha faces the Sky. But since we cannot see it, it is usually tilted and shown above Hanuman's face. Hayagriva gives Knowledge and go…
