A Part of Me Died On Good Friday

182,378 items / 1,436,872 views

a long walk
barefeet
kissing
the burning
face of earth
i took
a part of me
died on
good friday
on facebook
choked on
the river bend
suffocated
soul
of a poem
a withered brook
her phone
off the hook
she said
i will revert
to stone
if i
turn back
take a look

I Did Touch You After All

a few words
i wrote
on your wall
washed away by
tears i recall
i waited
i waited
i waited
you never
called

two words
meaningless
for some
but mean
a lot
miss you
words
on the soul
of poetry
you cannot blot
words you soon
forgot wisdom
adab tehzeeb
that your
parents taught
also mean a lot
a path to
future happiness
they dot good
memories always
remain 'bad memories
come to naught
a photo of innocence
from my soul for your
soul i poetically shot
in the prison cell
of my making
i rot

I Have No Regrets Leaving Facebook

a friendship
i misconstrued
as a poet
i swallowed
the bait
the line
the fishy
hook
fell in love
with a warrior queen
who is a master
chef a master cook
i played by ear
romancing a stone
who now does not
bother to give me
a second look
the mountain
in my heart shook
the running
stream of love
in my soul
now a contaminated
brook sukh aur dukh
what was hers she took
as for me from facebook
my flesh staked to her cross
i unhooked now
it is not
ok firoze
meri sanse
aur unke hath
main chabook
i was human
i was sensitive
i was vulnerable
not a crook
now a memory
of love poems torn
pictures in her
hearts scrapbook
she happy sad
in her corner
me only sad unhappy
in my poets nook

the taste
of haleem
kebabs
overcooked
a barmecides feast
of imagination
my dreams
on an empty
stomach
hungry
famished
i partook
kabhi khushi
kabhi gham
khali pet aur bhook

24 Hours Without Internet Thanks To MTNL Broadband Nightmare On Demand

182,372 items / 1,436,570 views

My net has been dead since 1 pm several messages calls to their technician Raja but it did not help and strangely the two men who are responsible for the upkeep of the MTNL Broadband Internet service of our are in Bandra Reclamation Bazar Road both are gone for training , and there is no replacement for them , the two officers concerned are Mr Shyam Sundarji and Mr Jony..

This morning I went to meet the Deputy General Manager Mr AN Uphadaya MTNL Broadband Bandra Reclamation Telephone Exchange to tell him my problem but I had to climb 7 floors as the lift was not working and because of stress and my rising sugar level I collapsed outside his office.. I am a diabetic , his people revived me with cold water ..

Mr AN Uphadaya is a very human kindly man , and got his people to get my net working , he will also look into my sons complaint Asif Shakirs net is not working since 15 days..

The people at MTNL Broadband are all nice but their organization is monolithic and thinks broadband internet is a linesman problem , they are living a million light years back in pre historic times and will soon self destruct if they do not change their attitude towards consumers .

They dont care a hang about us and my grouse is genuine my pain is genuine I have no personal issues when my net works well I dont complain , I have hence made a special set at Flickr ...and even their General Manger Mr Tewary to whom I have written 4 open letters on cyberspace is on leave I was told..

And my set is dedicated to him.. he should no our pain at the click of a mouse I am fed up of docket numbers and robotic responses.

I pay for a service I should be given satisfaction..I may not be Anna Hazare but he has inspired me to fight for my rights.. as a Mumbaikar as an Indian..

I blog my culture my surroundings and share my world as a blogger respecting all religiosity with 182000 images on my photo stream here at Flickr.com

I need to be treated with respect..and 20000 people see my images everyday here at Flickr.com and I say this with humility and gratitude.

My Son Asif Shakir Will Surrender His MTNL WIFI Modem Tomorrow

182,371 items / 1,435,651 views

Simply because he is a web designer his net has been dead since 15 days comes and goes kind of thing..


I had gone to give it today at St Martins office Bandra , but there was no oner there to take it..

And we have no issue with MTNL Broadband save that it has taken us for granted and hassled us immensely...they charge us for a service that does not exist..


MTNL Broadband Sucks

This set at Flickr.com is dedicated to their erstwhiile General Manger.

My Fourth Open Letter To GM MTNL Broadband Nightmare On Demand

182,370 items / 1,435,604 views

Respected Sir

I have come home from work and am writing this to you from my younger son Saif Shakirs computer Saif was smarter he did not opt for MTNL Broaa\dband he stuck to You Telecom.

My elder son Asif Shakir a web designer and me Firoze Shakir photo blogger opted for MTNL Broadband... as we were harassed immensely by poor pathetic service of YouTelecom.

Our nightmare continues with MTNL Broadband too , Asif Shakirs will end tomorrow when he surrenders his WIFI modem he has suffered the most since over 15 days he could not use his net it never worked..

The two people Mr Shyam Sundarji and Mr Jony who took care of us from your St Martin MTNL Broadband Office Bandra are on training and so we suffer , though I have sent them SMS on their mobiles and they have responded positively.

But our problem never ends my net is dead since I pm and has not resumed , and mind you I pay for the services that you charge me for , but I dont get my moneys worth neither do you recompensate me for time loss or outage.. Why Sir.

I am deeply hurt and disappointed at your service agenda and who do I bring my greivance to , there is no responsible person , we merely get robot response docket numbers and nothing else.

Sir in total honesty without bias prejudice your MTNL BROADBAND SERVICE SUCKS..

Its time you did something about this as I shall continue blogging my problems directed at you because the buck stops at your doorstep.. this linesman wala attitude must end..

I too can surrender my modem tomorrow but I wont give uyou the pleasure of taking an easy out.. you are not giving me charity to say the least.

Thanking You
