There Is Political Power Failure in Our Beloved Country ..

There Is Political Power Failure in Our Beloved Country .., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 238,797 items / 2,008,805 views

from scams corruption
embedded deep in our
soul we can never be free
tears on the soul
of my country
those that rule us
have destroyed us
completely
turning a blind eye
to all machinations
death of democracy
fast unto death
even death bleeds
humiliated beyond
its funereal slavery
those who pocketed
the common wealth
of the nation out
on bail judicial travesty
gouged out eyes 'of
the lady with scales
bleeding tears rolling
down luckily
she will never see
the tamasha
the tyranny
says the
unborn child
to be or
not to be

The Shias of Chennai are very closely knit and devoted community lovers of Ahle Bayt and followers of Hussain and Humanity.

Their hospitality even during a mourning time like Moharam is memorable , going out of their way to make their guest comfortable , and the guest was yours truly the barefeet blogger who had come to Chennai to document Ashura and also shot the 7 Moharam Juloos and Ag Ka Matam In Jigedevi a town in Tamilnadu thanks to my host Dr Abbas ..son of late Prof Ali Master a neminent Shia scholar and humanitarian.

The 1000 lights mosque and other places in Chennai are of great interest and Moharam is a moment of introspection a moment that is eternity the Shias call it Ghame Hussain.

And my pictures of Ashura in Chennai are restricted because of child kama matam , so if you register as Flickr member free with either your Yahoo or Gmail account you can see all of…

during
ramzan
his bounty
his grace
his will
his way
those
who fast
those who
pray those
who beg
as always
a complicated
situation
on the streets
in almost
every place
a few coins
wont change
their destiny
their fate
cant erase
rehabilitation
by the community
by the government
is what the mind says
charity piety in the
long run a short term
solution a path
gone astray

Lyrics:
(Behna ne bhai ki kalaai se
behna ne bhaai ki kalaai se pyaar baandha hai
pyaar ke do taar se, sansaar baandha hai

Sundarta mein jo kanhaiya hai
mamta mein yashoda maiyya hai
vo aur nahi dooja koi
vo to mera raaja bhaiya hai
Behna ne bhai ....

Mera phool hai tu, talvaar hai tu
meri laaj ka pehredaar hai tu
main akeli kahaan is duniya mein

behna ne bhai ....

Hamein duur bhale kismat kar de
apne man se na juda karna
saavan ke paavan din bhaiya
behna ko yaad kiya karna
behna ne bhai ...
