The Tissue Selling Girl Turner Road, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 238,672 items / 2,006,321 views

all day
tissues
she sells
through her
mesmerizing
eyes her life
her travails
she tells
no all is
not well
unborn baby
in her womb
from heaven
will fall into
earthly hell
instead
of tissues
her baby
doomed
tears
a cry
to quell
wonder
god on my
karma
a misfortune
befell
the stink
of life
deathly
smell
the honking
the traffic
the chaos
cacophonous
shrieks yells
among hand
clapping hijras
a rustic village
belle pretty
coy a heroine
of my street
bloggers novel
i captured
her restless
angst her
half buried
dreams
re echoing
from a shell

i did not buy
her tissues
i clicked her
picture
poetically
bid her
farewell
her future
i saw
but could
not foretell

to marc akemann
for his time and comment
i wish him well
a beggar poet
an evolutionary
reckless rebel

Why Nerjis Asif Shakir Will Not Be Part of Regressive Camera Club Culture

Why Nerjis Asif Shakir Will Not Be Part of Regressive Camera Club Culture, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. A message sent to a fellow photographer ,..as forward to Wishes for World Photography Day Aug 19

Promoting photography is good but what disheartens me is nothing has changed the same lighting the same slavish following the old masters and a few pseudo old new masters whose world has disappeared and a new brave world highly digitalized more , enervating takes its place , new approach, new perspectives greater use of poetry as a imaginative tool and we at camera club level have no desire to be part of this change and these are my personal views , see one camera club newsletters the images are the same , the lighting the same and than I wonder are we really photographers are mere copycats wanting to remain cowardly backwards ..regressive in time warp and time lapse..

And I hope all this changes one day .. it has I have made my grand daughters both one year old an…

I Have Not Kept My 8 Fast Today Serious Health Issues

I Have Not Kept My 8 Fast Today Serious Health Issues, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 238,672 items / 2,006,129 views


From the time I began fasting come what may I never skipped my fast , even if I was travelling I kept my fast .. so in many years it is the first time I am not fasting and it is a serious issue.

Yesterday I was having problems passing urine so I called up my friend Dr Parmar he said I take a routine urine check, which I instantly did the report showed traces of blood in my urine , I went for a scan that could not be done as my bladder was empty .. so after I completed my 7 fast I took the medicines prescribed by Dr Parmar , and all night I had pain in my kidneys .

I was awake all night and on the suggestion of my wife I decided to skip my 8 fast I have been drinking a lot of water something I did minimally when I began my fast ot after I broke my fast.

And so I shall go for a scan tomorrow and see what God has in store for me..

My bad karma has come h…

रेवा वरदा, कृष्ण कोयना, भद्रा गोदावरी
एकपणाचे भरती पाणी मातीच्या घागरी
भीमथडीच्या तट्टांना या यमुनेचे पाणी पाजा
जय जय महाराष्ट्र माझा ...

भीती न आम्हा तुझी मुळी ही गडगडणार्‍या नभा
अस्मानाच्या सुलतानीला जवाब देती जीभा
सह्याद्रीचा सिंह गर्जतो, शिवशंभू राजा
दरीदरीतून नाद गुंजला महाराष्ट्र माझा

काळ्या छातीवरी कोरली अभिमानाची लेणी
पोलादी मनगटे खेळती खेळ जीवघेणी
दारिद्र्याच्या उन्हात शिजला, निढ़ळाच्या घामाने भिजला
देशगौरवासाठी झिजला
दिल्लीचेही तख्त राखितो, महाराष्ट्र माझा

jahaan sooraj sabse pahle aa kar daale apnaa pheraa wo Bhaarat desh hai meraa

Om Namah Shiva

Om Namah Shiva, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Om_Namah_Shivaya

Aum Namah Shivaya (Sanskrit Aum Namaḥ Śivāya ॐ नमः शिवाय) is a popular mantra in Hinduism and particularly in Shaivism. Its translation is "adoration (namas) to Śiva", preceded by the mystical syllable "Aum".
It is also called Panchakshara, the "five-syllable" mantra (viz., excluding the Aum). It is part of the Shri Rudram Chamakam, a Hindu prayer taken from the Black Yajurveda, and thus predates the use of Shiva as a proper name, in the original context being an address to Rudra (the later Shiva), where śiva retains its original meaning as an adjective meaning "auspicious, benign, friendly", a euphemistic epithet of Rudra.

A Muslim Woman Begs

A Muslim Woman Begs, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. what is her story
I really dont know
that she is Muslim woman
she begs through
this picture I show
she and her child
a destiny they tow

her hijab
her protection
part of her
shadow
her enduring faith
she wont forgo
had she
been given a proper
education
learnt some skill
it would have reduced the blow
quid pro quo
but early marriage
part of our tradition
adds to their woe
some build mosques
some build madarsas
some build bunglows
muslim women
on street s nowhere to go
muslim poor women
the underprivilged
chattel human cargo
this is truth that hurts
but part of her portfolio
her womanhood cursed
as an unborn embryo
borrowed todays
mortaged tomorrows
life laid low
as a mother
motherhood
against a tidal flow
living dead
soon to be buried below
empty talks
empty hope
eternal emptiness
that they will bestow
they who
with sectarian rhetorics
sectarian violence
seeds of hatredness sow
dividing Islam
God alone knows
power politics
all a big show
the Muslim woman is
what a Musl…

poor muslim women
a chattel who
enslaved will never complain
backed by a male domain
male dominted muslim ethos
masculine profit masculine gain
poor muslim women and children
as they beg on the streets
and show their pain
the best of their childhood
womanhood , motherhood
down the drain
hopes aspirations
drowned sorrow
scriptured silence
on their souls remain
the mullah
regressive
muslim society has a lot
to explain
a fatwa to end this
discrimination
a jihad against
ignorance
an end to
muslims killing muslims
an Islamic world peaceful and plain
from empty radical rhetorics
petro-dollar powered
must refrain
allah ho akbar
cybernetic sectarian hate
the guilt of a generation
wont sustain
be kind
be human
be tolerant
live like ali

Who Is Anna Hazare ?

Who Is Anna Hazare ?, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Hazare

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kisan Bapat Baburao Hazare (Marathi: किसन बापट बाबुराव हजारे) (born 15 January 1940), popularly known as Anna Hazare (Marathi: अण्णा हजारे), is an Indian social activist who is especially recognized for his contribution to the development of Ralegan Siddhi, a village in Parner taluka of Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra, India and his efforts for establishing it as a model village, for which he was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 1992.

On 5 April 2011, Hazare started a 'fast unto death' to exert pressure on the Government of India to enact a strong anti-corruption act as envisaged in the Jan Lokpal Bill, a law that will establish a Lokpal (ombudsman) that will have the power to deal with corruption in public offices. The fast led to nation wide protests in support of Hazare. The fast ended on 9 April 2011. All of h…

Yazid the Accursed

Yazid the Accursed, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. it was not the thirst
but the treatment
of the ladies of Karbala
the snatching
of Zainabs chaddar
that was worst
Abbas saw it all
his head on a spear
helpless
tears that fell on the dust
all this havoc
on the house of the Holy Prophet
by the monster
yazid the accursed
may his ashes in the fires of Hell
be immersed
