on the doors
of his neighbor
throws i shot
as it touches
like a seedling
of bliss on
this beggar poets
a boat ride
for a friend
in a world
a poem in silence a seed it sows
dust to dust
held in a cosmic
is buried or burnt
man the stalker
the lonely avenger
on the hunt
dedicated to her whom i met on the boat ...who keeps my poetry afloat
Without My Naga Guru Shree Vijay Giri Triveni Maharaj I Could Not Have Shot All This, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
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.
I am perhaps the only Muslim shooting Lalbaugh Chya Raja for over 20 years or more ,,thanks to Mr Sudhir Salvi head honcho of the Mandal.....
