Demolitions of slums near Dagdi Chawl

I shot these famous Dagdi Chawl slums a few days hustling bustling happy and than came the bulldozers .. and nothing but a graveyard of rubble remains

Toone Tinka Tinka Chunkar Nagri Ek Basaai
Baarish Mein Teri Bheegi Aankhein Dhoop Mein Garmi Khai
Gham Na Kar Jo Mehnat Tere Koi Kaam Na Aayi
Achha Hai Kuchh Le Jaane Se Dekar Hi Kuchh Jaana
Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi ...

lighting the path
all over bazar road
nobody heard his wail
crackers tied
to his tail
the human
festive season
to regale
his soul
with extreme
they did nail
smoke fire to inhale
happy diwali
to you and yours
after a few
hits views
this pedestrian story
will soon become stale
this is his calm
his patience
in detail
as he sits
the next diwali
the cat
with a lizards
cut tail
from a thumbnail

I shot this in 2009 on Diwali Day ,,, bringing it forward for reflection

I saw this cat in the morning near my shop, as the lady who feeds cats pointed out his misery to me, I called for my camera and shot a few frames.

I have been following your pics of poor in flickr from quite a long time and I am not a fan of ur pics ..... Are you doing this just to ruin India's image internationally coz flickr is an international website OR are you really doing something good to that poor people by giving some money to them occasionally through this photos ?...... You show those people as ultra poor and your friends and relatives as super rich (normally with a background of bungalow or any high end gadget in hand) and this looks very biased to me. ..... Also you write as "many poor and slums are demolished under this tall building" or similar to this when you rarely take some pictures of tall buildings and for your information that is how a poor city/country will become a rich and that is how …
