My Kama Matam.. Chehlum Lucknow 2013

Malang Bhi Karten Hain Matam Hussain Ka

Bachban se kaha meine ya ali madadd
maa, bab, ne bhi kaha ya ali madad

puchta hai tu, kyun hum malang muskuratey hain?
ek bar tu bhi keh, ya ali madad

Jis Ki Rago’n Mein Aatish-E-Badr-O-Hunain Hai Us Soorma Ka Isme Girami Hussain Hai. . .

Kesy Kahon Main Tujh ko neya Saal mubarak.. Zainab (sa) mana rahi hai Chehlum Hussain (as) Ka



Eh deen kay mufti to aqeedat ka safar dekh
her matmi key khoon say alooda kamar dekh

JIssnay jaha bhee rokna chahee azadari
Tareekh mi un kutto kameeno ka hasher dekh

Her simt sya matam key sada ayeegi tujhko
Tu Fatima Zehra key duaaon ka asar dekh...

Chehlum In Lucknow 2013


I was planning to shoot Chehlum in Chennai but wife insisted I catch up with her in Lucknow where she was going to her house majlis ..so I took the shittiest train Lokmanya Tilak Udyog Nagri from Kurla the worst shittiest station with the worst possible access .. at Kanpur this train got a brain hemorrhagic failure so it halted there for 1 and a half hour after that it got stuck on the left bank of Ganga bridge Kanpur .. and my wife was waiting at Charbagh Lucknow since 2.30 pm as this train was to arrive at 3 pm it reached at 5pm.

Indian Railways the worst badly managed system of communicative in India RIP.

Chehlum in Lucknow was on 3 Jan.. I arrived on 2 Jan Evening

I called my relative Guddu ..who shot all these pictures of my Chehlum Kama matam, after majlis by Kalbe Jawad got over at Nazim Saab Imambada Nakhas ..my brother in law Mohomed Arif held on to my camera bag..

The winter chill and the cold is horrendous-but I managed , after my kama matam I walked barefeet from Nakhas Bajaza to Karbala Talkatora..


I shot extensively specially Baney Miyas anjuman of young kama matamdars .

I returned from Talkatora at 6pm.. my head at the back has a huge gaping hole .. as the Pushkar Kams hooked blade got stuck into it .. I lost lot of blood..

But Chehlum is a chapter of the Imams pain we relive as Ghame Hussain.... so the New Year 2013 is scripted in blood on the soul of Humanity..


Har Dor ke Yazeed Pe karta Hun main Lanat,



Ha Nasl e Yazeedi ki is Qom Pe Lanat,



Ashur ke Or Chehlum ke sab Shaheedon ko Salam,



Un be Gunah Hussainion k Qatilon pe Lanat.
