In Muslim areas , or predominantly Muslim food lanes there is a mad rush from 4 pm on wards to buy dates , fruits and other hot spicy snacks like chana ragda, samosas cutlets pattice ..so be it JJ Colony Lucky Food lane , Bandra Bazar , or further ahead at the crossroad of Waroda and Chapel road ,Muslims are busy adding flavor to Iftar time.

The other places in Bandra , are Bandra Station Road , Compound , and a few stalls that do brisk business near Bandra Juma Masjid.


Mahim is all time favorite for the folks living in the suburbs.

These are old pictures I am posting to add as visual.. some hot headed Miyas get uptight when you shoot pictures and so I dont think I will be shooting any new stuff in this segment ,, and strangely even in Ramzan a few Muslims love to lose their cool and intimidate others , well it comes with the territory.. I have no issue ..

I dont sell my pictures and my bl…

phiri nayi khushiyan
umeed ko sath laya hai
bhikari eid nahi mana pate
ek lifafe main unke nam
allah ke ghar se paigham aya hai
inhe izzat se jeene ka dubara
ek moka pir se aya hai...

I Am Recycling The Old As New This Ramadan

I Am Recycling The Old As New This Ramadan, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

remembering
nostalgically
where the old
days have
gone
shattered
peace ,,
battered
dawn
nothing
has changed
nothing will
change after
i am gone
the world
of pain
garbage
porn
hope
on the
threshold
of life
stands
shivering
withdrawn
as bombs
go off
in bodhi land
dead on

om mani padme hoon
where have the old
days of love peace
humanity gone

Ramzan Mubarak To All Of You From Bandra Where I Stay

i shot
this last year
it is the same
this year too
old is gold
old is new
a thought
that grew
minus
color hue
desaturated
depriving
the soul
of my poetry
my virtue
open to
view
as garbage
porn poetically
subdued

Ramzan Ka Chand Mubarak Ho

Marziya Shakir Has Understood The Spirit Of Ramzan... It Has Not Changed Much For The Muslim Beggar

Ramzan Has Not Changed Much Since Marziya Was 2 Year Old .. Only HopeRemains Unchanged

last year or
year before 
last the same 
ramzan same 
fast ..this year 
future or past 
dark clouds 
overcast 
but hope 
keeps the fight 
alive ..till the 
breath lasts 
no doubt
we are 
muslims 
whether 
this stream 
or the cliched 
mainstream 
our fate
 linked 
with bombs 
blasts 
terrorists 
treated 
as outcasts 
by paid media 
communal 
broadcasts 
light shade 
contrast 


The Muslim Beggar And The Hijra

in a way
you are
much
luckier
than me
you changed
your biological
identity
but will you
ever be able
to feel
the womans
angst that begs
within me
shaming
my humanity
you a man
in a womans
body ...could
you feel my
pain ..my
angst ..
against
your
dichotomy

Ramzan Mubarak.. Khuda Apko Abad Rakhe

The beggars most of all
waiting for the muezzins call
a comforting moment ..for
the poorest of the poorest
homeless hopeless all
the spirit of peace harmony
food for all..quenching
the thirst of the tiniest
the smallest all ...
the beggar on
the sidewalk...
