Because he did not want to feed Madams elephants he stayed back in Mumbai

Because he did not want to feed Madams elephants he stayed back in Mumbai, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. all the money from
the center goes to the state
yet the bhaiyya begs in mumbai
he did state so for his
party to give them a better life
notwithstanding they all wait
not wanting to build parks
or add more elephants
to her real estate
fresh air lots of oxygen
but sadly no food
on an empty plate
tryst with destiny
now has a new date
entwined hopes
to a cosmic fate

The Curse of One Sided Contacts at Flickr

The Curse of One Sided Contacts at Flickr, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. I have a profile page at Flickr that clearly states I wont add a contact with incomplete profile details or with porn on their photo stream or favorites , this tasteless pictures are made visible to me as the person on the other end adds me as friend or family.

And I am not into porn or human genitalia but one sided contacts keep adding me I have just deleted 90 of them and it is a tedious task unlike Facebook where you merely Block the person , at Flickr you have to go to the profile page block him , wait for the next step thereby wasting my precious blogging time.

A sample of the block page at Flickr

Block ????

When you choose to block someone, it means they:

* Can't comment on your photos
(All comments on your photos made by them are deleted)
* Can't comment on your sets
(All comments on your sets made by them are deleted)
* Are removed as your contact, and you are…

Marziya Is a Born Photographer She Knows The Needs of the Camera

Marziya Is a Born Photographer She Knows The Needs of the Camera, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Marziya Shakir celebrated her birthday on 24 Nov , her mother never shoots pictures, not on my camera , but this time she asked me for it , I would be at work and I did not want to impose myself on this kiddy party.

My daughter in law called me at work , and was not understanding something ,about the Nikon D 80 .. when I returned home she told me she could not find the flash button , so Marziya took it from her hands and showed it to her ..

Marziya has been using my camera since two years she knows it perfectly well , she only knows to shoot pictures and she shoots what she sees she shoots it well, but nowadays she shows off making stylish poses while shooting , she considers herself No1 .

She is all excited because her god uncle Guru Dr Glenn Losack MD is coming to Mumbai..she has been pampered enough by the Danish couple Kim and Viola who are now become family too.

I have never told you a secret , but I will today, I am criticized by certain section of Muslim bigots and a few members of the Shia community too, for shooting Hinduism , and today I break my silence , I shoot my Hindu stuff for this young guy in the picture I wrote about him but not in detail , his name is Yogesh he is a Maharashtrian Hindu, I met him once during Ashura in Mumbai he is a very close friend of Habib Nasser and Baqar Nasser , while the scourging s were going on he grabbed the zanjeer from my hands tears in his eyes he began scourging too, and from that day I decided for his community I will shoot all the Hindu feasts..in Mumbai at least.

And I am happy he practices his Faith as a Hindu , but he feels pain of my Imam was enough for me , the Shia bigot will tell me Pura Kyon Nahi Banta ..Pure Kitna Shia Bante Hain Woh Bhi Mujhe Pata Hai...Yes I shoot Lal Ba…

Hamare Mullah

Hamare Mullah, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Amama
pahen kar hame daratey hain
yeh toh hain nange hamam mein
humko bhi nanga dhikate hain
siyasti karne wale..
Allah aur Rasool ke naam par paisa banate hain
naam ke liye yeh kya nahin karate hain
sher khi khaal pahan kar
yeh bhed aur bhediyon ko nigal jaate hain
vande matram
ke bahane se yeh kiya kya
keh jaate hain
aapas mein jhagda karake
uupar wale ko doshi tharate hain..
Amama pahan kar khud to dare
buzdilon mein humari bhi ginti karate hain
lete hain naam hussain
ka aur hussainyat par yazidiyat
ki bharchiyan chalate hain..
Hamare Mullah
hain hamare
kisi aur ke ban jate hain.

Ammam means clerical turban.
This should only hurt whom the amama fits.. these lines are for rogue mullahs who are hell bent on dividing us.. our country as a Nation for political gains.. vote politics.Amama includes all religious head gears..that shame the headless sacrifice for Islam s Truth and Justice on the burning sands of Karbala..
