The man a shadow that walks faithfully behind the Living Legend the God of Acting Mr Rajesh Khanna.. a diminutive humble down to earth unassuming Bala.

He has been with the Boss for over 35 years or more , he is a silent soul, he knows what the Boss wants much before the Boss asks for it.

He plays the lead role in the domestic affairs of the Bosses household.

Leads you to the Boss and out of the house once your work is done and a smile from the Boss befire you can say a word he serves you with fresh lime juice.

He is the Indian dutiful Butler of Mr Rajesh Khanna dressed in shorts and a Tshirt at home , or a white shirt and black trouser at the Bosses shoot.

The last shoot was the Fan ad Boss in a black Tuxedo..

This picture was short at Vijay Sirohis Don Ke Bad Kaun directed by Mr Ashok Tyagi fondly called Osho.

I have a great respect for Bala he calls m…

Indomitable Spirit of Islam - Wiladat Bibi Zainab

Indomitable Spirit of Islam - Wiladat Bibi Zainab, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. she stood up valiantly
against terror
she put up a fight
a sword of ali
her birthright
her kutbas
disowning
yazid the accursed
his cowardly might
in his court
all totally quiet
72 heads on spears
watched this sight
sham sham sham
said the fourth imam
all night
wiladat e bibi zainab
indomitable spirit of Islam
shining bright
history of womanhood
she did rewrite
hussain as humanity
she did unite
to the first
majlis e aza
lovers of hussainiyat
she did invite


hussainiyat ke irado
ki pasba bankar
jidhhar jidhar gaye sarwar
udhar gayi zainab
bachakar din ki amanat ko
bhadakte sholon se
khuda ke din par
ehsan kar gayi zainab

memories
of your youth
nostalgically
old wounds
it heals
it soothes
every image
a reminder
silent but mute
a poetic thought
that bears fruits
