The Living Dead

The Living Dead, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
on their sepulchral souls
death silently treads ..
he knows they might
wake up lifeless bodies
zombie heads ..
they who beg
drugged comatose
earn their bread
narrow alleys
of pain despair
main road ahead
beneath a lifeless
winding sheets
hands outstretched
feet eagle spread
you too can fuck them
says the board
bleeding read

When It Rains

When It Rains, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

sweet
childhood
memories
of bandra
back lanes
alistair
romping
in the waters
with his wild
great dane
gully cricket
uncle joes
broken weeping
window panes
holding hands
wendy and wayne
watching jealously
green with envy
unmarried spinster
elaine ..smoking
his cheroot
mr caine
a happy
bachelor
he has
remained
though his
best pal
martin
married
his girlfriend
mary jane
sweet wet
memories
that rise
from my
brain
poetic
pitter patter
scattered
rains

You Wont Find The Magic Of India In A Travel Book, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

it has to
enter
your soul
your cosmic
consciousness
by hook or crook
india is a dream
you need to feel
before you look
india is not
a wall on
facebook
india is
a journey
that gets
you hooked
before you
take a flight
or seats
are booked
india is not
just bollywood
katrina salman
ranbir or sharukh

I Will Have No Regrets If I Happen To Die

I Will Have No Regrets If I Happen To Die, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

i lived my life
without regrets
now i wait
for the final
sunset
released
from my
worldly
responsibilities
the final rest
no more
examinations
no more tests
the final breath
empty the corridors
of my chest
lived in the east
never envied
the west
bottled fury
from my soul
i wrest
wingless
for one
last journey
i move my nest
my karma
my dharma
what was best
was best
away from
urban warfare
burning forests

Amary Athvi Malad Malwani 2011

Amary Athvi Malad Malwani 2011, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Due to personal reasons I have stopped shooting Moharam in Mumbai..

I only shoot Moharam in other cities and show the angst of the Shia community and Ghame Hussain.

I find the Shias in other cities more hospitable and humble and respectful towards documentarists like me , who shoot pictures as a hobby and passion and not as a means for making money,..

I thought this explanation was important for those in Mumbai who wont see me any more ,,
