Insan Ko Bedar Toh Ho Lene Do Har Kaum Pukaregi Hamare Hain Hussain

Allah Humma Lanat Qatalatal Husain

poetry needs no motive
it is emotive ..yazid is dead
but hussain lives i am human
but his mother his killers
wont forgive

Apni Karm Bhoomi Ko Bhi Karbala Samajhte Hain Hum Hussain Ki Jai Jaikar Karte Hain


ab unhe
bidat lage
acha lage
bura lage
ham toh
sadiyon se
hussain ka
matam karte hain
ahle bayt ke
dushmanon
ko ham insaniyat
ka dushman
samjhte hain
barasti teeron main
sajda hussain
karte hain
namaz
padte hain

Zuljana And Me - Shooting the Guru Nanak Park Juloos 2012



As I am now working as a fashion consultant for a high end sartorial brand , I am no more free or have time for my photoblogging activities , and as I m now donning shoes , I walked barefeet prior to this change in this new lease of life I tire out the moment I reach home, so in order not to miss this important juloos of Bandra West , I came directly from work..

And adding text is tough painful I accidentally cut the index finger of my typing one finger , so I am forced to type with the middle finger , my finger got cut by the blades of a fan in a low ceiling garment workshop in the Bandra slums ..

I missed the Bandra East Juloos this year for the first time ...for the same reason..

But I did go home changed came back and shot the juloos gave the kids zanjir matam a skip , this was shot by my three year old grand daughter Marziya Shakir last year...

I was actually not in a mood to shoot this juloos as Munir bhai one of the organizers had met with a heart attack last Friday, he lead the juloos , so shooting it without him seemed strange to me ..

14 sadyon se aqeedy ka safar jari ha.
Zindagi ALAY-E-MOHAMMAD se wafadari hai.
Humko tasleem NAMAZON ki fazeelat laikin.
BINT-E-ZAHRA ki tammana yeh AZADARI hai.

Mazloom ka gham gardish-e-doraa`n se juda hai
Ye dard har ik dil ke khazane mein chupa hai
Har waqt jhapakti hui aankho`n ko zara dekh
Gar matam-e-Shabbir (a.s.) nahi hai to ye kia hai?

This evening I came directly from work t shoot the Guru Nanak Park juloos , and was saddened by the fact that Munir Bhai had a heart attack last Friday and was recuperating at a hospital in Andheri , his brothers Wazir Bhai and Asghar were there , I did miss Munir Bhai and had no heart in shooting this juloos .

I shot parts of it rushed home with SK Abbas to change into more casual clothes and bring Marziya my 4 year old grand daughter to shoot the zanjir matam of the kids but Marziya was tired and heading for bed .

I came back shot the juloos but my feet were aching so I again rushed home and decided to shoot the procession when it reaches the Shia Khoja mosque past midnight..

I shot the hardcore zanjir sword matam and most of the guys I think will do their matam on Chelum like me too..

So I dedicate this set to Munir Bhai please be kind enough pray for his speedy recovery.. he led this juloos from the front and was the heart soul of this memorable procession from their house at Bashiron Guru Nanak Park via Almeida Park till the Shia Khoja mosque..

Killing The Shias is The Bigots Way of Appeasing The Maker

The Pain Passion Pathos Poetry of a Shia Blogger


I got a message in my Inbox..from a documentarist photographer from Spain Andres Guttierez .. in a form of a questionnaire that I copy here to express my personal views on Shiasm..as a Shia blogger and prolific street photographer who shoots the poetry and melodrama of street life and the angst of almost every culture existing in India .. including Sufism Hinduism Christianity and my own Shiasm..

His questions and introduction

Hi my friends, im working in Texts for the exposition, on the first of
Feb it might be open to the public, so i have some questions that
appear in my mind.

Whats the name of Moghul Masjid mosque area ?

The word Matam what really means?

Can any one hit his body with the Chains ? or need something special ?

Zanjeer is the right name of the Chains with 5 blades ? what kind of
blades exist for matam ?

What its the price of one Zanjeer ?

What time ends Ashura ?

I remember to hear: Ya Hussein! Ya Sakkina!, can you tell me more of
this shouts?

I have a picture for a baby in Ashura, childs can be part of Ashura ?

Whats the difference between hit the chest and hist the back with Zajeers ?

Whats feel Shias in Ashura ?

Really big thanks for all help, i guess i will have more questions in
a few days.


Big Hug from Spain :)
