The Maha Kumbh Mela Up Close ..A Moment In Eternity I Froze




away
from urban
commercial woes
garbage that
each man
on the doors
of his neighbor
throws i shot
the sangam
as it touches
humanity
poetically flows
a moment
like a seedling
of bliss on
this beggar poets
consciousness
overgrows
chirping of
 sparrows
flight of
the seagulls
cawing crows
a boat ride
her raised
eyebrows
her nubile
levitation
wordless
prose
a pain
in her
bosom
this bleeding
rose ..seeking
for a friend
in a world
of foes

a poem in silence a seed it sows

Within The Soul of Our Flesh We Are One .. Towards Peace Hope Humanity We Run




ashes
to ashes
dust to dust
held in a cosmic
urn whether
our spirit
is buried or burnt
man the stalker
the lonely avenger
on the hunt
maya within
the entwined
karmic essence
hissing like
a unsatisfied
serpent

dedicated to her whom i met on the boat ...who keeps my poetry afloat

photographers promote humanity

sath main rehne ka irada hai


na kam
na zyada hai
main musalman
woh hindu
insaniyat
ko mazab
banane ke
wada hai
na koie seema
na koie maryada hai

A Beggar Poet Documenting Kumbh Mela And The Naga Sadhus

Without My Naga Guru Shree Vijay Giri Triveni Maharaj I Could Not Have Shot All This


It is not easy shooting the Juna Akhada or the Naga Sadhus but the presence of my Guru gave me moral strength , and I wanted to document this great Maha Kumbh and share it with all of you...

I had a lot of SD cards remaining when I returned but I shot in moderation , never getting carried off ...

On the 15 Basant Panchami Shahi Snan I could have stayed back on the ghats Sangam continued shooting but I came back with my Guru I had bathed too with my Naga Guru was enough for me.

I shot the Nagas doing ling kriya with swords , I shot in limiatation this was my first Maha Kumbh and I made contacts , I shot people without provoking them..

I met Mr Raghu Rai a giant of a photographer who hugged and encouraged me I met Flickr photographers too.I met my brilliant nephew after 15 years Adnan Abidi Reuters and this was a very rekindling memorable moment.
