Breaking My 4 Fast With Khajur From Nerjis Asif Shakir, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Normally she gives the date to me than pushes it in her mouth .. with the bit of the Khajur in my mouth I break my fast thank God for his Munificence and Bounty.

I had just returned from some urgent work just in time for breaking my fast..

Today's Iftar had Simla Mirchi bhajias and fried boiled eggs in batter and the usual stuff , some fruits ..I mostly skip dinner and will now get and have Sairi..

This morning I took Nerjis Asif Shakir to a tour of rustic Bandra , what I wanted to shoot I could not find but shall shoot it tomorrow.

Tears for Karbala

suraj pasine se dhala
tadap rahi thi
karbo bala
islam ke dhad ko
bacha raha tha
shae ka gala

sad wa waila
khoon main litpit
karbo bala
lashon pe lashe
karbo bala
sad wa waila
sad wa waila
bewaqt jhuka
lekin waqt na jhuka saki
karbo bala
sad wa waila
sad wa waila
aane wali
yazidiyat
ko yad dilye karbo bala
hussainiyat
main samayi kabo bala
shahe mazloom ka
hai yeh gala
sad wa waila

we shoot
the poetry
of life
within a
frame
we
shoot
beggars
we shoot
pain
we feel
ashamed
for the
neglect
the apathy
who is
to blame
we shoot
the blind
the limbless
the cripple
the lame
we shoot
humanity
we shoot
the drama
of life
through
pictures
a candle
aflame
mortality
bleeding
bruised
our
notoriety
to fame
we are
street
photographers
documenting
the soul
of sorrow
shakir
our surname

Mr Photographer Is There Any Hope For Me

We Are Muslims We Beg

We Are Muslims We Beg, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Yes we are Muslims we beg
Allah ho Akbar
Asking Allah for Peace
Our Faith on the
Soul of our shoulders
Our Destiny
On the creaky
Stumps of our wooden legs
Yes puritanical Islam
Petro –dollars of Wahabbism
Arab barbarism an inheritance
Of the Jehadi killers and Taliban dregs
In the Holy Month of Ramzan
Ajmer shivers with a blast that
Loosening our spiritual pegs
As we see posterity dying unborn
Like feet trampled broken eggs

And my grand daughter Nerjis Asif Shakir one year old helps me begin my 4 roza .. 25 July 2012..

MTNL Broadband , nightmare on demand,

My Disciple Nerjis Asif Shakir 1 Year Old.. Photography Lessons

So in comes my student , she gets up at Sairi time her parents wake up for sairi but her resting place is with me and her favorite toy is the Canon 60D a light weight camera that she lifts easily but I hold t at one end ..

She is my tonic my inspiration and makes me re learn photography, and if a shit head in Delhi who bullies kids on blogger forum had kids as bright as this one perhaps he would not use despicable words and his love for guns arms ammunition would not inspire crazy guys to shoot humanity in theaters..

So blogging away the soul of a child her passion and her pathos ..and inculcating in her virtues like charity and sensitivity.. she gives alms she understands things beyond the scope of dickheads from Delhi.

Some Memories Dont Die .. Even after Death.. 4 Roza Sairi..

Sairi Time 4 Roza 25 July 2012

Sairi Time 4 Roza 25 July 2012, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Wife placed a single chappati with chicken salami and green chutney but before that I had my diabetic pill on an empty stomach ansd a gulp of Ozamin tonic that Mr Salim Khan father of Salman Khan has been giving to people and it is available at Bandra Medical stores it is a pancreatic tonic.

I took my blood sugar a day before Ramzan .. before breakfast 115 and post lunch 195 ,, and I think I was taking my blood sugar after a year almost.

Last night for dinner I had a half a plate of pasta but I consume a few cups of black tea.. I dont eat anything else ..between dinner and sairi.

My rozas have been peaceful no work stress I dont work ..I took a golden handshake from Life of finger printing racial profiling and authoritarianism and despotism....I am free so to speak and I am thinking of either visiting Unjha or Kuldabad two holy shrines I always wanted to visit and shoot.

And hovering all over me taking he…
