Teaching a 2 Year Old Kid Street Photography..., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Every picture I take is carefully seen much before it is shot by Nerjis in my lap in the ricksha ,,, she watches how I hold my camera and will never take my camera without first putting it round her neck, I hold the camera in my hands and she hits the trigger.. and she will ask me to show the image to her on the camera monitor..if I tell it is not good she will take another shot, we always take a few shots for safety.
We dont have to prove a point, our pictures are our personal thoughts ...and this is Bandra Hill Road.
The Birthday Girl Nerjis Asif Shakir 2 Year Old 17 July 2013, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
This morning my grand daughter Nerjis turns 2 ... but she is wiser smarter than a two year old , she is the smartest kid I have ever come across sometimes I feel she is teaching me more than I am teaching her ..every minute spent with her is time spent with the Wise One.
And I can tell myself we both share a unique mind space that has nothing to do with our blood relationship, I think we are related psychically , we are Malangs ...
And I shot this in the rickshah, before we set out she wore the headscarf, but it was too tight she asked me to put it away..and here we are returning home with a big choclate from Mr Yusuf Lakdawala which she said she will share with Marziya and Zinnia Fatima.
So this evening a small family thing , two cakes for father and daughter both born on 17 July 2013.. all this after Iftar.

"Anand mara nahin, Anand marte nahin" Shot By By Nerjis Asif Shakir 2 Year Old, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Nerjis Asif Shakir my granddaughter had come with me to Mr Yusuf Lakdawalas house on Carter Road , and after meeting him completing my work we decided to pay a visit to Bala Man Friday of Mr Rajesh Khanna .
Nerjis is very fond of Bala and it was at Ashirwad at 8 months Nerjis began to walk when Mr Rajesh Khanna called out to her ,and I consider that no less than a miracle , he called her to him patted her head , though he was very fond of Marziya Shakir.
Marziya and Nerjis are daughters of my eldest son Asif..
Nerjis and her father will celebrate their birthday jointly both were born on 17 July and on 18 July is the first death anniversary of Mr Rajesh Khanna .
Actually I wanted Nerjis to meet Ms Dimple Kapadiaji, this grand child has yet not been introduced to her .. the smartest in our family ,,, cybersavvy and fish bird friendly.
I asked Bala if Nerjis could take this picture as a moment that will be unforgettable in time and space . for her and those who love Mr Rajesh Khanna ,, a picture by a 2 year child of her favorite uncle .. a picture with good intent without any agenda or motive plain love a child her grand father for an Indian Idol, who though has passed away but still lives in our heart and souls ...
