he is pretending to be dead ...it keeps him alive

in mumbai even little children are not safe..

he escaped from an urban jungle full of elephants in rain coats during the elections

we aim high.. we are the people of mumbai

if instead of creating fucked parks white elephants gone black .. she had created a future for their children

the ear cleaner digs into the hole in your brains

aye gandu .. jyada teen pach mat kar..

a stone elephant trampled his harvest and his future ..

who will form the next government in uttar pradesh..an elephant a flower or a cyle or a hand

all eyes now on uttar pradesh...after the battle of the ballot the public gets hung

the ragpicker boy was born without a future

hijras are men living as women.. they made a choice but who hears their voice

she loved elephants more than the poor of her state ..

I Shoot life from the Viewfinder of my Fucked Soul

Dont Ask Him His Birth Date ..His Luck Died Before He Was Born

As Indians Our Common Man Is Much Stronger Than Our Army Chief

Muslim Beggars Dont Ever Celebrate Eid ,,

bichde sabhi bari bari...

only in India work is worship..

humility came much before man made a home as a dwelling place

life is always in motion .. running over emotions death and devotion

man created dividing walls before he created a home

simplicity is the essence of understandable street photography

my subjects are ordinary people ...like me and you

The Mobile Phone Has Fucked Man Forever ..

The Masked Marauder .. and the Helpless Woman.. Unfinished Street Story

the only wild cat in my area has gone tame and timid

feline fidelity .. alas is dead in females of the human specie

the life i shoot is as real as pain flowing in my veins

The Silhouette of the Hijab..

All The Kings Horses All The Kings Men Could Not Put The Elephants Together Again

All The Kings Horses All The Kings Men Could Not Put The Elephants Together Again, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. jab garibon
ke pasine se banaye hue
hathi tode jayenge
bhangar main beche jayenge
khushiyon ke naye din ayenge
bhaiyya bambai chodkar
apne watan laut jayenge
phir se social engineering
kabar main daphnayenge
na koie dalit na koie musalman
na koie brahmin
phir se sab hindustani ban jayenge
tiranga lehrayenge behnji ke
jute nahi chamkayenge
sone ki mala phoolon ke har
unke statue par ab nahi chadeyenge

the hijras are men in a ladies attire

the hijras are men in a ladies attire, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. restless
souls
eyes
painful
blue sapphires
body lustful
loins on fire
sex on hire
the hijra
gets tired
at the red light
cages hijra gully
livewire short
supply no buyers
a missing womb
gen next he wont sire
the hijra libidinous
love androgynous desire

Garlic..

Garlic.., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garlic

Allium sativum, commonly known as garlic, is a species in the onion genus, Allium. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive,[1] and rakkyo.[2] Dating back over 6,000 years, garlic is native to central Asia,[3] and has long been a staple in the Mediterranean region, as well as a frequent seasoning in Asia, Africa, and Europe. It was known to Ancient Egyptians, and has been used throughout its history for both culinary and medicinal purposes.[4]

The ancestry of cultivated garlic is not definitively established. According to Zohary and Hopf,[5] "A difficulty in the identification of its wild progenitor is the sterility of the cultivars", though it is thought to be descendent from the species Allium longicuspis, which grows wild in central and southwestern Asia.[6][7] Allium sativum grows in the wild in areas where it has become naturalised. The "wild garlic", &qu…

Nayi Umar Ki Nayi Fasal.. A Forgotten Gem..

Nayi Umar Ki Nayi Fasal.. A Forgotten Gem.., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. This is my tribute to a blogger Atul who has captured the beauty of old lyrics for posterity .. may his tribe increase ... his words on this film Nayi Umar Ki Nayi Fasal

atulsongaday.me/

During the golden era of Hindi movie music (circa 1950-1980), things were quite simple and rudimentary in most fields. Hindi movie songs tended to become popular only if the movie did better, and the movies did better only if they followed certain set formulaes. Movies that tended to deviate from the standard formulae tended to fail and as a result, the songs of such movies too would suffer.

“Nayi Umar Ki Nayi Fasal” (1967) was an off beat movie and it failed at the box office. AS a result, the songs of this movie also failed to get popular with the public. In fact, most people may not have heard of most of the songs of this movie.
For instance, I was just not aware of this song from “Nayi Umar Ki Nayi Fasal” (…

i shoot maria ..and i live to tell her painful journey through a fistful of pictures

god is a gardener and some of his plants need more water than others

photographers are painters we paint gods backyard of weeds

gods world is a picture gallery of pain..

she is blind but knows i am shooting her pictures she hides her shame from me

once i enter her mind i record the lilting silence of her soul

as a photographer i enter her mind through my camera

but luckily
they dont have
to build elephants
statues or dig
their graves
in their
home states
it is their political
leaders that
earn and save
through scams
corruptions
that they crave
happy happy
hands
they wave

in India women are made to slog ..and in arab countries by culture police flogged

karvan guzar gaya ghubar dekte rahe

karvan guzar gaya ghubar dekte rahe, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Swapna-jhare phool se,
Meet-chubhe shool se,

Lut gaye singaar sabhi baag ke babool se,
Aur hum khade-khade bahaar dekhte rahe,
Karvan guzar gaya, Gubar dekhte rahe.

Neend bhi khuli na thi ki hai dhoop dhal gayi,
Paon jab talak uthe ki zindagi fisal gayi,
Paat-paat jhar gaye ki shaakh-shaakh jal gayi,
Chah to nikal saki na par umar nikal gayi.

Geet ashk ban gaye,
chhand ho dafan gaye,
Saath ke sabhi diye dhuan-dhuan pehen gaye,
Aur hum jhuke-jhuke,
Mod par ruke-ruke,
Umar ke chadhaav ka utaar dekhte rahe,
Karvan guzar gaya, Gubar dekhte rahe!

Kya shabaab tha ki phool-phool pyar kar utha,
Kya suroop tha ki dekh aina sihar utha,
Is taraf zameen aur asmaan udhar utha,
Thaam kar jigar utha ki jo mila nazar utha,
Ek din magar Yahan,
Aisee kuchh hawa chali,
Lut gayi kali-kali ki ghut gayi gali-gali,
Aur hum lute-lute,
Waqt se pite-pite,
saans ki sharaab ka khumaar dekhte rahe,
Karvan guzar gaya, Gubar dek…

And the Church looked the other way because the padre had his plate full of food to interfere with temporal situations he was in no mood .. he said render to Christ what belonged to Christ just do Good .. Render to Caesar what belongs to Caesar .. a thought that did the community No Good.. fate conspired against heritage ancestry ...tradition culture .. a page cant be displayed misunderstood

Jab Dil Hi Toot Gaya Ham Jike Kya Karenge ..

Jab Dil Hi Toot Gaya Ham Jike Kya Karenge .., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. जब दिल ही तूट गया, जब दिल ही तूट गया
हम जी के क्या करेंगे, हम जी के क्या करेंगे
जब दिल ही तूट गया - २

उलफ़त का दिया हमने, इस दिल में जलाया था - २
उम्मीद के फूलों से, इस घर को सजाया था - २
इक भेदी लूट गया, इक भेदी लूट गया
हम जी के क्या करेंगे, हम जी के क्या करेंगे
जब दिल ही तूट गया

(मालूम ना था इतनी, मुश्किल हैं मेरी राहें
मुश्किल हैं मेरी राहें ) - २
अरमां के बहे आँसू, हसरत ने भरीं आहें - २
हर साथी छूट गया, हर साथी छूट गया
हम जी के क्या करेंगे, हम जी के क्या करेंगे
जब दिल ही तूट गया

jab dil hi toot gayaa, jab dil hi toot gayaa
ham ji ke kya karenge, ham ji ke kya karenge
jab dil hi toot gayaa - 2

ulafat ka diya ham ne, is dil men jalaaya tha - 2
ummeed ke phuulon se, is ghar ko sajaaya tha - 2
ik bhedi loot gaya, ik bhedi loot gaya
ham ji ke kya karenge, ham ji ke kya karenge
jab dil hi tto gaya

(maaloom na tha itani, mushkil hain meri raahen
mushkil hain mer raahen ) - 2
