life in mumbai
is not the same
by the way
kids raped
a price they pay
law and order
died the day
you died
some say
acid thrown
on their faces
as the system
more interested
in big bucks
scams corruption
turns it head away
police commissioners
come and go
a musical chair
a game they play
but evil stays
criminals are no
more scared of cops
even young kids
have become more
daring each day
get caught let
off on bail
climb a pipe
rape a foreigner
athitho devo
bhava repay
law and order
the climate
in mumbai
dark bleak
ki jay
neta logon
ki jai jaikar
sirf dar aur bhay
no love humanity
no bhaichara
no sneh
after 3 months
the organizer
of the azad maidan
riot gets caught
politically protected
what more can one
say hope we get
back our old days
fervently to a god
who too has dozed off
we impotently pray
as for senior citizens
getting murdered
the easiest way
getting their
property their
worldly wealth
deathly day
a child bleeding
cries in a corner
rickshaw wala
uncle gave
her a chocolate
laced with
agony ran away

my students of photography

3 street photographers

Nerjis Asif Shakir On A Swing All Around Happiness She Brings

shoots pictures
this angel without
wings her street
a cosmic thing
a new surprise
on the soul of
my poetry
she springs
one of the
on my ring
a sparkling gem
above all thing
