From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, formerly Victoria Terminus, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and historic railway station which serves as the headquarters of the Central Railways in Mumbai, India.
Designed by Frederick William Stevens with influences from Victorian Italianate Gothic Revival architecture and Indian (Mughal and Hindu) traditional buildings, the station was built in 1887 in the Bori Bunder area of Bombay to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The new railway station was built on the location of the Bori Bunder Station[3] and is the busiest railway station in India,[4] serving as both a terminal for long distance trains and commuter trains of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. The station's name was changed to its present one in March 1996 and is simply known as VT (or CST/CSTM).

Shooting Moharam..The Inner Angst of My Pain My Self Expression, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. 240,961 items / 2,024,735 views


I began shooting Moharam about a few years back.. if I had not taken up photography to get rid of my inner angst my inner pain , which I will not give an explanation but I was a victim of alcohol abuse and I gave up alcohol completely thanks to my familys faith in me.. their prayers that pulled me through...I would have ended up in a lunatic asylum.. I was bad case ..

I needed an intoxication to replace my thirst , that the the psychiatrist felt could have an healing effect on me I chose the camera and met Habib Nasser Baqar they their friends changed my life further..

I began documenting Moharam.. not just for the Shia more fervently for the Non Muslim friends and later my foreigner friends , not being a preacher , not being just a Shia but also a human being..

I began this task,, and shot Moharam in most of the major cities from Mumbai…
