The Same Thing Happened To Me In Kolkatta

The Same Thing Happened To Me In Kolkatta, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

During an Ashura there some guys invited me in their truck and took me to the Shia cemetery , they said they would drop me back they did and I realized as a poet perhaps some ancestor wanted to see me ..so I never refuse a invitation to cemeteries.

I have shot cemeteries in Lucknow.. my grandfather Daroga Nabban Sab is buried in Gufra Map..my grand mother in Malka Jahan.. my parents in Mumbai

As for me despite my religiosity I have decided not to be buried in a Shia cemetery I have pledged my body to Medicine ..if it can be use to another person is enough for me .. this is my personal individual prerogative.

buried
deep
within
the entrails
of the earth
back in a
mothers womb
no pangs of birth
the soil the worms
for company
your earthly worth
