mind over matter .. the flesh lean the spirit gets fatter .. with a
sledgehammer the doors of the unknown you batter

Bai Pirojbai Dadabhoy Maneckji Vachha Agiary
Situated on Dr. Dadabhai Naoroji Road (D.N.Road was the next Agiary to be consecrated. Situated along the same footpath as the Ardeshir Dadabhoy Dadiseth Agiary, this one was consecrated on May 19, 1881 and was built by Bai Pirojbai, who was the widow of the late Seth Dadabhoy Maneckji Vachha. This Agiary has an Adaryan (a holy fire that can only be touched by the priests) as well as a Dadgar, (a fire that any Zoroastrian is allowed to touch) as the rest of the Agiaries profiled here, have. An enormously huge Agiary, its main entrance has been closed but Parsis who wish to visit this Agiary, have to enter through a tiny door that is situated to the left of the entrance. As soon as one enters through the side door, one is greeted by an image of the Holy Fire flanked by two priests, conducting prayers. The beautiful image is depicted on glass.The exterior of this Agiary is extravagant with two winged bulls at the gate and a motif of a Fravashi (winged angel) atop it.The present Panthaki is Ervad Percy Dinshaw Dadina, who has been managing this Agiary for the last 25 years

Hey Firoze..the mail might seem long..but the words came like that., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
This lot is rapid shots from a moving cab while heading urgent work to Churchgate ...and yet I get something as a picture to ponder after I have shot it...
And I got a message from a Flick member , his fluidity of words his sincerity and yet I cannot accede to his request of allowing him permission too see my transgender set.. I have withheld his name .
Greetings for the dAY.
Well hw do I say this,without making it seem too obvious or seemingly untruthful....Umm..hmm...I dont know.Well its this..I am a big fan of your work.The way you capture the streets,its hope,the desperation and the deprivation is great and more so your Poems! which amazes me even more.Not many can do tht.I also greatly admire the depth and the absolute Vastness of your work on the Eunuchs and transgenders.Their life is a mystery to most and so is their Beauty, which you have captured .
Once upon a time I could see their life and beauty through your lens but now U have put restrictions on those privileges;and for the correct reasons to which I do agree.
I have just begun photography and am not too good at it atleast now, but if that is not a constraint to being your friend and allowing me to look at all of your work especially the Hijra ethos, the please do accept me request for adding you as a contact and a friend.
Thanks & Regards,
