The Street Photographers of Bandra ..

Beggar Poet Shot By Nerjis Asif Shakir 23 Month Old

Learning The Alphabet Of Pain

the street
is my school
life is my teacher
hits me hard
when i fool
on the streets
survival the only
lesson ..no
rules ..
i will learn oneday
when god gives me
plentiful ..i may
not be able to
stand on both
my feet muah
my moments
wrapped on
a broken spool
thank you
for all
my shortcomings
with a dunce cap
on my head
you cant make
me stand on a stool
one day i will inshallah
rise head and shoulders
above the cesspool

Will The Muslim Beggars Life Change With A Few Coins ,,

a thought
that hits me
over and over
as i shoot
them everywhere
beneath the flyover
she was a mother
her motherhood
begs i dont even
know her ..
a pain that has
begun not yet over

Motherhood Bites The Dust

a man she
did not trust
a man who
made her
a drunk too
bites the dirt
the innocent
child on
the threshold
for no fault
but accidental
gets hurt
lying inert
if it could go
back in the
womb a drop
of semen washed
ashore by bad luck
its fate could revert
become unborn
once again without
any effort ,,,

The Muslim Beggar Pain And Pathos

a moments
on the road
like a rolling
stone gathering
loss ,,,essence
of humility
effect and cause
a misplaced jihad
killing innocent
people total
chaos ..muslims
love killing muslims
a misplaced
martyred ethos
the poor the homeless
a thought that does
not come across
72 nubile virgins
in paradise wooed
by faces mutilated
ghastly and gross

Grand Pa Thank You For Teaching Us The Meaning Of Pain

through the camera
you made us think
with the heart
feel with the brain
you crystallized it
on our soul like
drops of rains
you made us
shoot beggars
people insane
you made us
shoot jesus
churches crosses
in bandra backlanes
you made us shoot
garbage a system
in chains ..you made
us shoot humanity
as followers of hussain

Thank You Marziya ...And Nerjis .. Both Your Hands I Kiss

for the gift
of your
that to
is added
you god
our wish
thank you
miss ..
as is
where is
