This was the first time I met Deepak Amembal , we were fellow bloggers at Fotothing and it was Deepak who introduced me to Flickr in 20005 .. I posted some stuff deleted my Flickr account as I was heavy into Blogspot and Buzznet.. the two pillars foundations of my metamorphosis from a photographer to a blogger..
I came back to Flickr in 2007 when my Buzznet site was hacked and I had to delete 11000 blogs as the hacker had put porn pictures in my Shia set at Buzznet so the right wingers issued a Fatwa on me and it was one big nightmare ..
I began blogging again I still have my old account as a blogger my homesite Photographerno1 .. I dont post anything here it is just my unmarked grave reminder as a trauma of a blogger who shoots controversial stuff and Shiasm that gets on the goat of Wahabbi and other puritanical elements that hate the Shia ideology..
Shias are a persecuted race but than we have bigots among the Shias too so I have distanced myself from all this congregational stuff and metaphorically poetically I call myself a Hindu Shia lover of Hussain and lover of my Country Hindustan its cultural inheritance that I blog promote as Hope Hindutva living in peace with all Humanity..
I moved out of Facebook too I am now on Google+
I am a Dam Madar Malang too..
