donon mil julkar
ek sath rehkar
bhai bhai bankar
ekta ka sabak
sikhate hain
bharat desh ko
age badate hain
makar sankranti main
hope humanity
patang ke zariye
ye message
pahunchate hai
ek bargad ka ped
uske branches
aur roots
ban jate hain
idd aur diwali
ek dusre ke
seene se
lag jate hain

sirf neta hain
jo do bhaiyon
ka batwara
karate hain
majhab ki ad
main hame
dushman
banate hain
goliyan
chalwate hain
hame apas
main ladwate hain

The Shooter of Dreams Marziya Shakir

The Shooter of Dreams Marziya Shakir, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Most of the beggars , the eunuchs of Bandra the fisherwomen , the street sellers know this child as she was part of the dreams I shot, and dreams she shoots too..

She is a friendly congenial child but wont be bullied at all .. she is devoted dedicated , when she finishes her school work she draws pains but it is fathers phone that she uses as a child gamer , she knows the comp, and will tell me to show her website every morning..

She is in Junior KG..but a wise young lady all the same..she is always around her sister Nerjis Asif Shakir or playing with Zaira Saif Shakir..

She was sad because her Guru Dr Glenn Losack left for home back to America without meeting her .. and she follows in his footsteps , she shoots with a divine passion , clinically to the core..

I have encouraged her and the Nikon D 80 is her best friend , those who have visited her website are proud that as a 4 year old child she is good with the camera.

Marziya is an artist and a mobile phone gamer , at home in the mornings she rolls kneads parathas or chapatis ..helping her grand ma..

Evevry morning when she wakes up rushes to our room she wishes us both but is deeply attached to her grand mother .. her grand mother is her world and my wife dotes on our first grand child..than comes Zaira Saif Shakir she calls Fatima ..and this to compensate the excess love I shower on Nerjis Asif Shakir a Malang like me..

Nerjis Asif Shakir only 5 month old knows…

Fear of Flying ...

Fear of Flying ..., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Its true I have never flown a kite in my life
but my words on the wings of pictures fly
mingle with the spectral spirits in the sky
through the soul of the manja connected
to the internet i show you the streets
where they live they die broken
down souls on gravestones lie
as the selfish world passes them by

Patang Udane Ke Bahane Aja ..Aja Chat Pe Jind Meriye

I dont fly kites I have never ever flown a kite but I know the feeling the gusto the fervor being a beggar poet who flies on the wings of his poetry and photo blogs..

I have not any kite pictures this Makar Sakranti.. simply because I have lost my maneuverability , earlier I was independent with ample time at my disposable not anymore I work at a high end fashion store and when I finish work and come home I am dog tired I hit the sack..

So I am using an old picture to tell my story...and the story of Makar Sakranti 2012

Wikipedia

Makar Sankranti (Sanskrit: मकर संक्रान्ति, Assamese: মকৰ সংক্রান্তি, Malayalam: മകര സാന്‍ക്രാന്തി, Oriya: ମକର ସଂକ୍ରାନ୍ତି, Tamil: தைப்பொங்கல், Telugu: మకర సంక్రాంతి, Marathi: मकर संक्रान्ति, Kannada: ಮಕರ ಸಂಕ್ರಾಂತಿ) or Sankranti or Sankranthi marks the transition of the Sun into Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path.
