Yes my black sartorial silhouette is a thing of the past, two months eight days I strictly wore black or tiger prints , no other color at all.

Yesterday we celebrated Eid e Zehra at home and wife hails fom Lucknow so it was Gul Gule.. and yo must try out this happy Shia time delicacy..

I was busy at work with a very important film shoot , and this picture was shot by my shop help ..he shoots me better than anyone else no he does not know the ABC of photography.

Marziya in the Slums

Marziya in the Slums, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. These are pictures I shot of Marziya before she left for Lucknow, these are pictures I downloaded from my camera today..

Marziya walks to my work place through this slum , and her favorite haunt is this one room where this enterprising Muslim girl gives tuition to the slum kids.

And Marziya loves the slums , the ambiance and down to earth moments of life..

And the kids love Marziya and they have no qualms in accepting Marziya as their own.

Marziya will return from her maternal grand parents shortly...

I know him since many years he recites Hindu shlokas and is deeply versed in the Scriptures , he once told me he is from a Sufi sect pre Islamic before Adam..

But I dont take notes so I really dont know what he meant but I pay him generously whenever I meet him..and last Friday was at Mount Mary steps for some work I could not get a rick so I decided to walk back home and I spotted him sitting outside a Jamati mosque I was quite surprised as these guys dont tolerate Sufi beggars or Shias for that matter.

However I spoke to him , he said he was begging here since some time and had no issue though some guys had thrown stones at him , but in a way it has always been Muslims who cause more harm to Muslims .. if you dont follow ones ideology.

My subject is Sufism Malangs and Rafaees touching street photography, I gave him a wad of notes for Ramzan and took a lot of pictures on the st…

teachers leave them kids alone, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
some of our school teachers are macho sadistic
they use the cane they use the ruler and the stick
on a weak student who piddles they pick
make him drink his urine makes me sick
according to them corporeal punishment
does the trick the system you cant lick
children they love to torture torment kick
our education held in a school bag
wisdom collected assimilated like bricks
when the kids grow up they become
rude brutal with no respect for womanhood
a girl is a girl is a girl just a skimpy dressed chick

I love Marziya and Zaira too but I have a very special bond with this Malang kid .. lover of Ali .. she keeps falling as she walks but says Ya Ali .. words that escape her lips each time , like me she loves the Kama the feel of steel on her head and like me she does matam.. raising her legs and leaping in the air..

She loves the camera she is totally besotted by the Cnon EOS 60 D and next the laptop the mouse and her picture with the Lucky the Labrador my desktop wallpaper .

Her mother does not allow me to take her down .. so she is cooped up in the house.

Both Marziya and Nerjis get along like a house on fire but it is Zaira that gives her a ough time .

And Iftar time shall be a great pictorial moment.

Her first Ramzan.

My wife gets up to prepare the Sairi for all of us , we dont eat anything from outside.
She made Chicken Malai roll ..two pieces .

And I was about to begin when my little Nerjis walked in..
Khuda ne mera pehla roza qabool kiya .. I began my first fast with the morsel from her hands.
And than I saw a message that was the second sign that God Almighty had perhaps forgiven me for my errors my emotional aberrational behavior..

And than began lessons teaching Nerjis Asif Shakir to understand the camera she is learning photography on the Canon EOS 60D though she likes the sturdy feel of the Canon 7D.

Marziya Shakir is fast asleep..

I have been completing all my rozas and its been close to 17 years or more since I gave up alcohol , I was a alcoholic not something that I am proud of but than one cant change the past.. but I did thanks to my family my children.

These are few pictures I shot on the Canon EOS 7 D that I am posting today as I begin my first fast of Ramzan.

I am a diabetic so I took mt diabetic tablet before I start my Sairi two chapatti rolls .. I am a very frugal eater ..and since the time I changed my life style I have always kept all 30 days fast.

Never missed a single fast ..

And whatever I am I ow to my family my children grandchildren.. they have given me peace and joy..
