You are the reflection of your parental heritage , my parents were god fearing god loving but not bigots what they put in me as a seed bloomed into the fruits of their labor of love.
My parents never told me to hate Hindus , my parents did not tell me to hate Parsis or Christians , they never had thought for hate such was their struggle in life , starting our migrant roots at Kurla slums called bakhar and than assimilating a place of our lifes destination Khatau Bhuvan Wodehouse Road now Jony Castle, and this was my dad as my mom was very young, I was perhaps a year old in 1955.
As this is not a biographical blog all I want to say I am what my parents made me no venomous hate for other peoples religiosity , I dont know my attachment with this quaint laid back secluded Hanuman Mandir where the form of Hanumanji was discovered from under the ground this was al…
Every frame you capture is a revelation! Thanks for sharing.

And when the heart doesn't want something, no amount of rationale or reason can or should change otherwise.
And when the heart hurts, it hurts
love precariously like Icarus with broken wings stuck to a poets waist plunges hits the dirt mother earth what is death but a beautiful cosmic rebirth her memories her tears her pain her sufferings were they worth hope that suffocated in the womb of mystery unwritten poem died in childbirth
it was not in my hands to be what you want me to be fuck dont you understand broken wings broken dreams marshy wastelands i walk barfeet crutches of pain despair away from your restricted dreamland blogging on the soul of your innocence a poem a drama of my life with a clawed damaged right hand a furnace a fire you accidentally fanned poetry sweet heart is not a one night stand nor supply or demand what happened had to happen neither you nor i planned hand of god he wrote what you nor i could metaphorically expand you in your corner me in my homeland
These are images shot by a very dear friend ,the hand covering known as tanzeb were in pure antique silver I sold along with a lot of other stuff as I was plumb broke and I have no regrets what has to go will go, but what hurts is I sold it when silver rates were low what I gave for Rs 10000 is today 60000 , I had rare book collections old antique cameras all picked up from the flea market I collected with passion , all went the same way, and I never profited as I sold it in distress under duress.
I never collected anything for gain , or for making a profit, it came lived with me went away I was a transit point of loss and retrospection.
I stopped collecting old stuff I completely stopped going to the flea market, going to the flea market is self induced drug and it can make you rich man or a pauper in no time..all those memories are part of my Flickr sets and …

The man sitting next to Da Mir Pan is a fruit vendor , he sells fruits from house to house and he comes every day to Bandra from a far of place , I respect him because hard work too is a poem of life that connects with God and his Godliness , we are cosmically connected to each other through our individual souls caste color religion or nationality is much lower in the order in terms of our collective ethos of Humanity.
I am a beggar poet , life has come to me in a cosmic beggar bowl, moments precious semi precious fall in this bowl of existence ..and existence is subjective different to different people.
My camera makes even the unhidden come alive and like a vital chord connect with others too.
Pain is what I shoot and pain keeps me alive as much as it keeps you alive too.
The umbilical cord of life connects man with God through pain.
Today my dear Croatian friend Damir visited my workplace I had not seen him or Zlatko since the time I shot them at Carter Road.
They left St Peter Church and are lodging with Ollie brother of Al the Tattoo Artist of Bandra Hill Road.
Damir is a nice bloke sincere and genuine he told me Firoze what you did for us cannot be bought by money, and as an aside what I did was zilch, I had money I would have given to them but I have been going through bad troubled times emotionally financially.
I had spoken to Ollie to help them he did he is bigger in his generosity hospitality than I am.
The person sitting with us is a Bhaiyya house to house fruit vendor a nice guy too and I made him part of our world our story.
From my work space I took Damir to my house to show him the pictures I have posted on the internet via Flickr, they dont h…
