with 30 feet long
into your soul
they will stare
how you fair
your inner secrets
they will bear
they will repair
removing all despair
at char yar
malangs of ajmer
spiritual finesse and flair
black clothes they wear
save you from satans snare

My wife was in Karbala Iran and Damascus for Ashura Moharam, and bought this chadar for Marziya that I wrapped on this child malangs head.. the chadar has touched the roza of Bibi Zainab.. the indomitable brave courageous sister of Imam Hussain ..
Bibi Zainab stood up against Yazid a tyrant a despot and the man responsible for killing Imam Hussain the son of Imam Ali and the grandson of our Holy Prophet.. ..
My 5 month old gifted grand daughter Nerjis Asif Shakir aspiring street photographer who shoots on the Nikon D 80 assisted by me is a Malang like me ..our breath is Ali our pledge is Ali.. Har Dam Har Pal Ali.. Ali Ali Ali .. Nam Liya Bala Tali Ali Ali Ali
Glenn left without meeting Marziya his god child student disciple , she was at school..and when I showed her these pictures on my comp you she was quite upset as to why Uncle Glenn had not waited for her..
Marziya loves Uncle Glenn ,he gave her her first Nikon D 80 when she was barely 15 month old..and she has been shooting his vision since the age of 2..
I hardly get time to take Marziya out, last night I came from work, my feet tired swollen because of my newly acquired shoes I crashed I just got up now it is 3 am, I have not had my dinner as yet..
I got a call from Younus Bhai Chairman of Haji Malang Dargah and Abdul Bawa of Kalyan to pay my respects to the Holy Saint of Haji Malang a mountain I climb barefeet both ways ..a paradise that is a spiritual home for everyone including the transgender and hijras from India..
And now that I too have become a Dam Madar Malang disciple of Peer Baba Masoumi of Gwalior..it has changed the equation considerably..
I offered Glenn my recently made sleeveless jacket which he politely refused, he has no space n his baggage..Instead I gave him my long camouflage army surplus long hooded jacket at gift..to brave New York winter chill.
Glenn had come home when I was at work..so wife made his breakfast tea till I came back from work at noon..
Jawaani Bhatakti Hai Badkaar Bankar
Jawaan Jism Sajte Hain Baazar Bankar

Yeh Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye, To Kya Hai ?
