Athvi 2012 at Malad Malvani

Athvi 2012 at Malad Malvani, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
This is part of my new set at Flickr.com that I shot last evening I was unable to pst all this as my Internet Server MTNL Broadband was giving me continous trouble by crashing all my uploads so today on the day of Eid e Zehra or 9 Rabilawal I am posting Athvi pictures the last segment of Azadari Moharam when 2 month eight days of mourning come to an end.

I earlier shot the Athvi and the Amary at Govandi but than I found Malvani to my liking because of the hardcore zanjir kama matm and this year I cut my head in Athvi too, I had already cut my head in Ashura and Chehlum..

So I wish all of you Eid e Zehra Mubarak and see the storyboard flashback of the Shia tear of pain.. a story written in blood and scripted on the human heart of society..

My Eunuch Sorrow Being a Subscriber of MTNL Broadband a Nightmare on Demand, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. I am in a leaking boat , and I am in a leaking boat run by MTNL Broadband honchos who cant satisfy old subscribers , my net has been dead since last night , page cannot be laded or displayed .. and all my complaints are water on a fucked ass of Bombay Duck..

And I have a large amount of photos to upload but it is nt possible with my server crashing every time and the Gen Manager MTNL would not really carry a damn..because he is busy getting ready for the Derby is all I can poetically presume..

My cup of eunuch sorrow is overflowing thanks to MTNL Broadband ..Mr Johnny of St Martins Road Bandra their tech has promised to resolve my problem... he is the only man with a human heart at MTNL Broadband .. a Nightmare on Demand .

your complaint has been booked your docket number is 795 thank you for using this service

Brahmins Fought for Imam Hussain in the Battle of Karbala

by Rakesh Sharma

Hindus have a long association with Iraq and Muslims. Please read the article below:

The presence in Arabia of many Hindus. mostly Brahmins. before the rise of Islam, has been recorded by the historian Sisir Kumar Mitra, in his book ‘The Vision of India’. page 183. These people observed Hindu religious customs, including the worship of Shiva and Makresha from which the name of Mecca is said to have been derived. The famous astrologer Yavanacharya was born of one such Brahmin family. It was from these Brahmins that the Arabs learnt the science of Mathematics, Astrology, Algebra and decimal notation which were first developed in India.

At the time of the war of Karbala (Oct. 680 AD). Rahab Sidh Datt, a potentate of Datt …

according to them
this is their evaluation
of my shia spirituality
my bleeding face
my bleeding eyes
i await the Mahadi
doing tandav
dance of death
on the soul of Shimr
at Malad Malvani
i am a lover
of ahle bayt
follower of ali
i believe
hussain
is humanity
a shia hindu
from mumbai
my pathos
my passion
my poetry
through
my blood
sweat
tears
bound
to a greater
divinity
ashura
chehlum
athvi


i would rather be a rafidi
than a salafi or a wahabbi

He Did Kama Matam With a Penknife

He Did Kama Matam With a Penknife, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

He is a devout Shia boy, I met him last year at the same place at Malad Malvani, he had come with a kitchen knife , he had spent Rs 50 to get it sharpened and he cut his head.. I blogged his passion his love for Imam Hussain.. he had come without any of his elders .. but he had a brother and they took turns cutting their head with their kitchen knife.

This year he was without a kitchen knife so I asked him if he was doing kama matam, he pulled out a pen knife and began cutting his head viciously seeing him I cut my head too on Athvi ..

So the Shias are highly emotive when it comes to their faith and that one pain called Ghame Hussain..

I normally cut my head a ritual known as Kamazani twice during Moharam , Ashura 10 Moharam and Chehlum 40 day of Moharam....

This year my kama matam during Chehlum has been vicious and deep , my wounds were not healing and even the slightest pressure made my wound bleed all over again..

I have cut my head on Athvi the last day of Moharam when the mourning of 2 month eight days comes to an end..at Lucknow at Kazmain , it was one day I have never forgotten I cut my head and scourged my back, my bleeding never stopped , I am a diabetic ,and I was bleeding the next day on Eid e Zehra too..

This year I was to shoot Athvi at Malad Malvani the only place in Mumbai that has hardcore zanjir matam and kamazani at the end of the juloos that starts from No 8 Malvani.

I left my mobile phone at home as it is gift and I do not want to lo…
