Marziya Shakir 4 Year Old Shoots The Soul of Photography, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Marziya Shakir loves Viola and Viola and Kim loved every minute spent at my house , this was shot by her , we had a farewell dinner Lucky biryani home made dal rice and chicken tikka and korma...two other Shia friends Hyder Raza and Ferman Ali had joined us too, and the food sufficed and nothing remained just the aroma on the licking finger tips.
Kim was very sad and did not want to leave Mumbai but all things come to an end.. and Marziya takes a shot from the reservoir of her camera consciousness .. nowadays she wears the hijab that my bought her last year from Karbala..
Viola is a person I wont ever forget and I had thought of shooting her in the hijab something I forgot in the end and they want to come back in April and take me along with them to shoot the Eunuch festival at Koovagam Koothandavar...Lord Iravan is not ready for me as yet.. I think .. this is the only festival that eludes me constantly each year to the next..
Because my new job is corporate I have given up my Malang attire for good .. and I dont have a weekly off as such so I am now an old wine in a new bottle ..

Nerjis Asif Shakir will be 5 month old in a few days she chose 17 July the day her father was born as the day of her birth, and the day she was born she added Vic Gundotra on Google+ but she added Marc Zuckerburg too.. and it six months since Google+ was launched and both my grand children along with me deserted Facebook to be in august company of Robert Riedl and Robert Scoble..
So Nerjis Asif Shakir a Malang like me , a street photographer in waiting was born into a house that is inner vision and camera friendly.. Nerjis Asif Shakir has a Gur and her sister Marziya Shakir too share the same Guru .. Dr Glenn Losack MD an American Jew .. he is their godfather , mentor and guide.. now you will wonder why they did not choose me their garrulous grandfather as their Guru.. simply because I am a student learning unlearning the intricacies of light and shade and I am point shoot photo artist.. I simply care two fucks .. sweet fucks for formal training or Fucked F stops..
I know one premise without a Guru there can be no learning or unlearning I have several Guru and my grand daughter did not chose them either .. they are American friendly and they love Uncle Glenn .. he is their beginning and the end .. only he does not know it..
Marziya Shakir the worlds youngest street photographer studies at Apostolic Carmel Convent in Junior Kg loves Barbie dolls and Viola .. she thinks Viola is also a Barbie doll.. and Viola and Kim both street photographers documentarists left day before yesterday for Denmark...,
Nerjis Asif Shakir hates the miniature camera a family heirloom also made in America ..she wants the Nikon D 80 .. and knows the buttons .. and please dont underestimate the holistic healing power of Malangs or Malang children..
I have another grand child 2 month old Zaira Saif Shakir she is a born street fighter , dexterous uses both her hands to knock of anything that comes her way including the miniature camera .. she I see will not be part of my family's tryst with photography, my wife is in Iran on a pilgrimage a great closet photographer but hates photography .. my daughter Samiya her bitter half Assad are great photographers too,.. my sons are ambivalent to the the silhouette of moving stills .. my daughter in laws could become good photographers but they are as ambivalent as their respective husbands.,so we three Nerjis Asif Shakir Marziya Shakir and yours truly beggar poet barefeet Shia blogger form the troika of three souls in one all three lodged in the cosmic consciousness of the Camera.
Marziya shots wth her eyes closed and tries to shoot on one leg .. tantric unleashing of energy.. from the Nadi.. Nerjis Asif Shakir I feel and I am certain will the best photographer in my family ..she is very observant , she captures the angst ethos of timelessness in empty space..
And here it is Viola and Nerjis Asif Shakir both interconnecting and holding each other in a terrific grip of recognition and respect.. Nerjis Asif Shakir Malang is as old as Viola in Wisdom .. I need not reiterate .. Nerjis Asif Shakir and I have long talks in a language that none can interpret we talk on various topics and sometimes the disciple of one Guru becomes the Guru of another disciple .,. Yes my grand daughter are my Gurus too..
I am perhaps the only Muslim shooting Lalbaugh Chya Raja for over 20 years or more ,,thanks to Mr Sudhir Salvi head honcho of the Mandal.....
