"Aye Shio Jab Peena Paani Bhool na Jaana Mujhe".

Documenting The Shias of Hyderabad

Shabbeer (A.S) agar dil mein tera naqsh-e-qadam hai, Kuch khof na mehshar ka, na a'amaal ka gham hai; Yeh raaz khula Hurr (R.A) kay muqaddar say jahan mein, Jannat tau teray aik tabassum say bhi kam hai."

And so I documented Moharam in Hyderabad at Hussaini Koti Choti Bargah and did street shots in between.
