the last emperor
his pain his angst
his turbulence
his turmoils
as a silhouette
behind him
only time saw
felt understood
life was an island
of lost illusions
lost memories
bad ugly
some good
empty hopes
in celluloid
kaleidoscopic
bioscopic
bollywood
dreams delusions
he withstood
he would have
changed the course
of the river if he could
banks on either side
eroded by falsehood

Sharukh Rafaee

Sharukh Rafaee, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. The kid is sad, his father is missing, since a long time, and like his father Sharukh Rafaee is a complete body piercer, he does the body piercing acts with a finesse of an adult..

This time he is out of the Rafaee circuit...

I gave him Rs 50 / but told him to hand it over to his mother ..they sleep on the pavement of Mahim where the roadside bawas sit.


He uses the sword to pierce his eyeballs, he cuts his tongue...and he is just a kid, he loves to be photographed just like any other curious kid.
