The Muslim Beggar From Murshidabad, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. This evening I decided to take a cab and shoot the walls of Mahim on foot , but a guy Imet told me there were better images at Charni road , so Itook my cab to town but not before shooting the Mahalaxmi dhobi ghat , the Charni road wall was washed out total disappointment , Iwalked and shot lanes of Dhobi Talao and at Princess Street bought a double seat tricycle form my grand daughters Zinnia Fatima and Nerjis Asif Shakir..
I have just returned from town..there is a ladies function at home so the grand kids are all dressed to kill.
When my grand children are shooting pictures I try not to shoot pictures unless I want to document their presence with the people they are shooting ..this gives them confidence , but here the person in the cap wanted me to shoot him , so I took his shot ...and these are local residents regulars of the quintessential Bandra Bazar fish market .. which has been renovated but could have been better.
All Indian markets lack civic and hygiene sense ..their garbage management is horrendously unhygienic old time and with no modern application of mind or spirit.
Sadly the Municipality thinks it is doing a favor to the public and I can honestly tell you if the upkeep of the markets the roads was given to a private party they would do a far better job..our Municipal outsourcing is to appease caste community , so merit plays no part at all and this is found in almost all services .
