mad or wot
from a wolves
den in real time
a few lines

a new style
a new pose

Laxmi at the back was in very bad shape I gave her some money , she could barely stand on her feet, and she told me she had malaria , I told her to go to Bhabha Hospital down the road .. but hijras and these are hijras normally looked down by other hijras , because they are known as impostor hijras , guys who don womens clothes and beg for a living..
They live a life of penury, and in the past I gave them clothes too simply because they are human downtrodden and these are a few pictures I have kept open for public view but the bulk over 20000 are not for general viewing ..
I hardly shoot hijras I guess I dont need to document their lives specially at Flickr all my hijra pictures have been stolen misused and the people who robbed my pictures committed identity fraud of the people I shot.
So I avoid shooting hijras completely nor do I add them as contact , not interested ...here or at Facebook...my personal prerogative nothing more nothing less ..
I am perhaps the only Muslim shooting Lalbaugh Chya Raja for over 20 years or more ,,thanks to Mr Sudhir Salvi head honcho of the Mandal.....
