Corruption Scams In India Will Never Go

Corruption Scams In India Will Never Go, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 240,801 items / 2,022,750 views

young future of our nation
piddles on the soul of politics
if i may say so though the erstwhile
prime minister the hon president
want corruption and scams to go
in the backyard of most netas it grows
like an orchard that ripens brings
hope prosperity we all know
garlands of black money
round necks all aglow
in politics only the media
the common man is foe
as the line of corruption
they wont toe on the soul
of the mahatma hey ram
another blow greater than god
greater than nature is the
holistic healing power of dough
babus all running to and fro
an adarsh society all the more
ill gotten gain commissions
consultancy charges
keeps accumulating coming
from the back door the rajas
the kalmadis the chavans
small fish the real culprit
moves about freely
you get the score
life is nothing but
bed of thorns
beneath the roses says
the politicians pet whore

I have been wearng Dure Najaf for a long time now , along with Turquoise , my favorite was Turquoise but gradually I started falling in love with Dure Najaf I went through bad time suicidal emotions but I came out unscathed ..perhaps it was my iron clad faith in myself that pulled me through prayers of my family .. I sold most of my silver jewlery when the storms hit me hard , selling my antique silver kadas a silver necklace with a giant Akik for Rs 10000 and the necklace was over 900 grams and in a few days after selling it silver reached a peak of Rs 60000 I sold my 275 old cameras lenses etc for Rs 17000 my entire book collection of old Persian books for Rs 2500 to a friend ..


It hardly matters now God was testing me I passed the test I made myself stronger and than decided to shut my shop took up a high end job with a big fat salary worked eight…

I have been twice to Hussain Tekri Jaorah and this is a place that hits me hard in the guts , getting a hotel room during Chehlum is next to impossible .. I was broke falt but a friend Ali Reza Shirazi bought me here may God bless his family forever, he kept me at a friends place I stayed a single night shot Chehlum the following morning and took a train back to Mumbai to shoot the Chehlum again in Mumbai.

It was the first time that I cut my head hee at Hussain Tekri Jaorah.. I went to Chabuk Sharif and this set at Flickr you must see , it is pain suffering and more .

I am not a travel photographer I cant shoot monuments ... but I shoot life moving life fleeing emotions and living dead in sweaty shrouds.

I wont forget this trip, this was a trip during my very bad times a fucked Nikon D 80 that bled like me and doing Kama Matam with the intense Kashmiri Shias was an experience of a l…

kah na sake tu, apni kahani

chupke chupke, rone waale
rakhna chhipaake, dil ke chhale re
chupke chupke, rone waale

tera dard na jaane koye
pinjre ke panchhi re, tera dard na jaane koye

pinjre ke panchhi re

The Begging Hijab

The Begging Hijab, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

buying a
rs 100000 goat
is more important to
appease god please
note but rs 90000
given as charity
to a widows home
or a children
orphanage
would keep
hope afloat
rehabilitation
of the poor
needy in
muslim society
is a thought
remote
muslims
love killing
muslims is
what we
promote
peace brotherhood
is not the keynote
bismillah he said
cut the goats throat
the coat of the goat
he offered it to
the masjid
some bank note
bakra eid
mubarak
his new
pathani
his velvet
waistcoat
a poetic
thought
through
a picture
thus emote

dard

sukhe hot
har eid
ek nayi chot
