Rayo - My Childhood Bawa Friend, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 178,482 items / 1,397,685 views

The text for this post I received as an email attachment, and I thought I would add to its shelf life, by paying tribute to my oldest childhood friend Rayomand Framroze ..we were three actually Rayo , Vimal from Sri Lanka and late Keith Kanga of Atomic Forest.

Rayo stayed at Khatau Road close to Wodehouse Road ..We Keith , Vimal and I stayed at Jony Castle..it was called Khatau Bhuvanwhen we were young.

Vimal stayed on the second floor in a house that belonged to Gazdar Jewellers Taj Mahal Hotel.Vimal and Keith were on the same wing..Keith's father Dossabhai Kanga a Parsi magnate owned the entire ground floor of their wing.

I stayed in the adjoining wing that was completely owned by late Nawab Kashmiri, we stayed in two room spacious servants quarters on rent ..1955 or before., I am bad with dates


I have not met Rayo for several years , but we connect more efficiently …

Trying to change a profile picture at twitter
is like reliving a fuckin nightmare..
every effort attempt gives me the scare dear biz stone
this is totally unfair a testicular tragedy a circle
sodomized by a square into an unknown zone
dreamless seamlessly I stare wondering whether
you guys do really care twitter is over capacity
at cross hair a poetic pandemonium my soul I bare
cross blogging from flickr my world I share
my bloggers soul caught in a cybernetic snare

sardar vallabh bhai patel weeps
politicians drive a blunted dagger
through his heart
while the hardened soul
of a fragmented nation weeps
on our national unity
shadows
of factionalism
regionalism
parochialism
creep
political compulsions
defrauding democracy
come to Maharashtra
for a seconds peep
the bhaiyya in the throes of pain
a promise his state satraps could not keep
he came here to earn as an Indian
now battered bruised on a cow dung heap
yes we have progressed by leaps
terrorists come in from the back door
while our erstwhile government sleeps
why blame only P…

Jesus out of reach

Jesus out of reach, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. a wall of the clergy
that a common
man cannot breach
jesus
in protective custody
jesus out of reach
jesus
might get infected
they practice
what they preach
jesus
in an isolated
ivory tower
only the papacy
can
over reach
soul thrashed
grounded on the beach
jesus
a monopoly
of the parish priest
jesus a metaphor
now a figure of speech

The Shia Hindu

humanity
the only
religion
it is true
an American Jew
my photo guru
he shoots beggars too
we met on the internet
out of the blue
a cosmic intervention
how why i have no clue
the walls of Jericho
shooting
the elusive soul
of the downtrodden
we pursue
naga sadhus
brahma shiva
vishnu
souls held
in captivity
he rescues
why god
made us
white black brown
we never argue
what is color
if it has no
human hue
from the matrix
of religious bigotry
we both withdrew

dedicated to another
Indian lover
sukhi hontu

My Hijras Wont Ever Be Part of A Rich Mans Coffee Book

My Hijras Wont Ever Be Part of A Rich Mans Coffee Book, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 209,364 items / 1,726,180 views


I shoot the hijra community ,I am not a hijra activist, or a person attracted to hijra sexuality , I shoot hijras with due respect, I dont and wont ever ridicule the people I shoot , and I wont ever make fun of my countrymen , whatever their color caste or creed .. this my parents taught me and is the mainstay of my life..

I know hijras but dont familiarize with them , the only ones I interact or communicate with are Laxmi Narayan Tripathi my hijra Guru, Khushi the most beautiful hijra and Simran dancer a happily married transgender.

I shot a lot of hijras and these were gifts of God of his children, I am sure he would not alienate them for their choice of gender I think God is more human understanding than religious bigots and homophobic godmen.

I have inundated my Google+ stream with my hijra pictures to show you a world you may never see even in a…

Allah Is One Only His Followers Are A Divided Lot, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 209,364 items / 1,725,635 views

Muslims love
killing Muslims
sectarian strife
sectarian violence
hate that is taught
suicide bombers
misplaced martyrdom
bombs gunshots
on the soul of islam
it is the Muslim
evil plots
because
of one jehhadi
the innocent Muslim
on the wrong foot
gets caught
for the sins
of another man
in foreign prisons
he rots terrorism
we must boycott
a message of peace
hope harmony
through a snap shot

may the guy who created it
in fires of cybernetic hell rot
a tear of shame on the soul

between a a blogger
a positive spammer
a poetic after thought
pain on my poetic
soul he has brought
