the cosmic wheel of life weeps
man mans greatest enemy
godliness a commodity cheap
the unborn child your ill begotten gains
does not want to reap ..
from his mothers womb shudders
peeps into the covers creeps
no he does not want your world
as blood from the umbilical cord seeps

reliving
a nightmare
drugs essence
of their existence
they have nothing
only misery remorse
despondency to share
unwashed clothes
to wear ..caught
in an eternal snare
hopelessly without
prayer .. lice infested
uncombed unkempt
disheveled hair
peripheral participants
of ajmers spiritual fair
begging for alms
at the market square

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ajmer (Rajasthani: अजमेर, Urdu: اجمير‎), (pronounced [ədʒmeːr] ( listen)) is the 5th largest city in Rajasthan and is the centre of the eponymous Ajmer District. Ajmer has a population of around 551,360 in its urban agglomeration and 542,580 for the city (2011 census), and is located 135 kilometres (84 mi) west of Jaipur, the state capital, 274 km from Udaipur, 439 km from Jaisalmer, and 391 km from Delhi.
Ajmer is surrounded by the Aravalli Mountains. It is a pilgrimage centre for the shrine of the Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti and is also the base for visiting Pushkar (11 km), an ancient Hindu pilgrimage city, famous for the temple of Brahma.

And this is the same situation from one year to the next..waiting in the mornings , nights or in the hot blazing sun without a shade over their head .. and it will remain this way .. till one day Khwajah Garib Nawaz puts mercy in the souls of the Indian Railways and the apathetic Rajasthan State government .

I shoot these pictures every year to show you the Pilgrims Progress with no other agenda but hope that traveling to Ajmer Sharif will be subsidized for the poorest of the poor , for him Ajmer Sharif is Mecca Medina .and he would walk all the way to Mecca Medina if this world was a world without borders fences or boundaries.


Sadly there are hardly free dharamshalas or resting homes for the very poor lover of Garib Nawaz.

This documentary of my trip, my spiritual travelogue as a Dam Madar Malang is dedicated to the poorest of the poor ..I shot the beggars , the hope…
