Rayomand Framroze My Childhood Friend

Rayomand Framroze My Childhood Friend, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. To make my journey
memorable on earth
the river of life flows
some say it as a poem
some say it as prose
Keith Kanga
Vimal Patacharige
Rayomand Framroze
as my best friends
God chose
all of Wodehouse road
jony castle cuffe parade
fu fu granny
with her raised eyebrows
jeovhahs witness
bible sessions
that made us all doze
remnants of memories
beautifully transposed
doors that open and shut
seldom ever close
the upside down world
of a blogger firoze
sartorial soliloquy
jewelry and clothes
a loaf of bread
a glass of wine
a facebook wall
loneliness enclosed

*glass of wine is metaphor for black suliemani chilya tea

Every Land Karbala - Everyday Ashura

Every Land Karbala - Everyday Ashura, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. fighting against
ummayad
imperialistic hegemony
corruption depravity
with all its flaw
our beloved imam
gave his head
fighting valiantly
did not withdraw
saving Islam
and the Holy Mecca
keeping Allahs bayt
Allahs law
safe from a yazidi outlaw
every land karbala
every day ashura
ghame hussain
a pain since 1400 years
a wound that is raw
moharram a protest
against spiritual terrorism
through eyes of shiasm
as the world saw
a drowning man needs
ahle bayt
not just a straw
trampling yazidiyat
sher e nayastane
hyders claw

Hum naya saal manatey hen teray matam se.”

Hum naya saal manatey hen teray matam se.”, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. “Apni taqdeer jagatay hen tere matam se

Khüd ki raah pe jatey hen terey matam se

Apne izhär-e-aqeedat ka saleeqa ye hai

Hum naya saal manatey hen teray matam se.”



“Naye baras! Teri khushyan mana nahin saktay,

Rasool (S.A.W.W.A) roye jahan, muskura nahin saktay.

Hamara saal nahin,zindagi Hussain (A.S) se hai,

Ham apni zeest k ma’ani bhula nahin saktay.”

I got this message on Facebook , because I told the person I was not a majlis hopper , she wanted to know about majlis in Mumbai .

I gave her a guys number who is deep in Shia events and updates me too.. even the Bahrain pro March he told me about it or I would have never known..

So I sent a message to this Facebook friend

why just because a man goes to a mosque he becomes a muslim


i am not a fan of mullahs i keep away from them .. my shiasm runs in my blood stream

my karbala is embedded in my heart soul..

perhaps i am not the kind of shia you think a shia to be

a shia is also a product of his surroundings ..

if i was not a shia you would have not approached me in the first place

any way take care .. sometimes the depth of an ocean lies in the poetry of his soul..


"Hussian-o-Minni wa Ana Minul Hussain". (Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain)

i am a hindu shia

manacled
enslaved
for a thirst
of liberty
equality
justice
he craved
a imam
who bought
him out of
the wilderness
of stupor
drunkenness
his soul saved
a cosmic chaos
hitting the shores
of his soul
wave after
to save
humanity
from terrorism
the tyranny
of yazid
his noble
head
he gave
karbala
ashura
a path
he paved
for 1400
years
we with our
blood sweat tears
hussain ya hussain
on the heads of our
unborn child engraved
a heinous crime
of shimr yazid
we never
forgave
in memory
of 72 brave
beshumar lanat
yazidiyat caved
bastardy
depraved

the shia waiting for the Apocalypse now in his grave..
