The Little Masseur Boy of Mahim - 35,489 views on my Flickr photostream today

The Little Masseur Boy of Mahim - 35,489 views on my Flickr photostream today, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. I can write volumes about the masseur boys but I hate battling with words , I am a picture man....

The masseur boys with dreams in their eyes come to Mumbai mostly from Bareilly and other North Indian dargah circuits..

I though of shooting pictures of one of them giving massage to my scarred legs, but I let it pass.

I will catch up with this thought at the Urus of Fakhruddin Shah Babas Urus that starts day after tomorrow.

The masseur boys stay on the Mahim beach, among their own, and ts on the beach they give full body massage to those patrons that come to smoke hash at the addas on the beach.

They massage heads legs , back depends on your ailment..there is no massage for the broken heart...

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Good Friday[nb 1] is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday,[1] or Easter Friday,[2] though the latter properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
Based on the details of the Canonical gospels, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most likely to have been on a Friday (John 19:42).[3] The estimated year of the Crucifixion is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton via the differences between the Biblical and Julian calendars and the crescent of the moon.[4] A third method, using a completely different astronomical…

Waiting For Noahs Ark

NOAH
Ancient extra-biblical Jewish sources suggest that Noah was an albino.1
Noah at birth had skin as white as snow, long white hair and eyes transparent
to the sun. A recent finding among the Qumran Scrolls (4Qmess ar) states
that Noah had red hair. If he were an albino, it would have been because one
or both of his parents were dominant or recessive carriers of the gene for albinism. Alternatively, Noah might have manifested the first mutation for albinism. The Genesis text states (6:9) that Noah was righteous in his generation, an apt comment for one of innocent white complexion

Albinism

Albinism, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

The word “albinism” refers to a group of inherited conditions. People with albinism have little or no pigment in their eyes, skin, or hair. They have inherited altered genes that do not make the usual amounts of a pigment called melanin. One person in 17,000 in the U.S.A. has some type of albinism. Albinism affects people from all races. Most children with albinism are born to parents who have normal hair and eye color for their ethnic backgrounds. Sometimes people do not recognize that they have albinism. A common myth is that people with albinism have red eyes. In fact there are different types of albinism and the amount of pigment in the eyes varies. Although some individuals with albinism have reddish or violet eyes, most have blue eyes. Some have hazel or brown eyes. However, all forms of albinism are associated with vision problems.

People with albinism always have problems with vision (not correctable wi…

Albinism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Albinism (from Latin albus, "white"; see extended etymology, also called achromia, achromasia, or achromatosis) is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes due to absence or defect of tyrosinase, a copper-containing enzyme involved in the production of melanin. Albinism results from inheritance of recessive gene alleles and is known to affect all vertebrates, including humans. While an organism with complete absence of melanin is called an albino (pron.: /ælˈbaɪnoʊ/ American English,[1] or /ælˈbiːnoʊ/ British English)[2] an organism with only a diminished amount of melanin is described as albinoid.[3]
Albinism is associated with a number of vision defects, such as photophobia, nystagmus and astigmatism. Lack of skin pigmentation makes for more susceptibility to sunburn and skin cancers. In rare cases such as Chéd…
