Now this picture if you see the eyes of the child you will understand why kids too prefer begging to start of as a profession , it is easier more money no laidbacks .. and no boss unless of course the parents or guardian are forcing their kids to beg, most do, even wives are forced to beg by the notoriously Muslim macho male .. some of them , you will see them standing far away keeping a watch on the wife and kid, my camera eye misses nothing..
Bohri Mohalla Ramzan Nights .. Iftar And More, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. For those who want peaceful chaos than after Minara Masjid head to Bohri Mohalla off Bhendi Bazar main lane , this lane has some great food porn , for those who love street junk food, Bohri sweets at Tawwakal , malpuas and more ... seekh kebabas , khichda and chinese , pizza and snacks.
Most of this lane is crowded with the sons of the soil the Bohris themselves who love food , and this is an interesting Ramazan Food Yatra .. Dont Miss It..
Most of the sweet chefs , sweet makers at Minara Masjid are Muslim migrants from North India Uttar Pradesh..the cogs in the wheels of the sweet Industry during and after Ramzan too.
They are the ones who sweat it out ..slog and add their touch to what you relish and eat..I guess nobody really bothers about that , inconsequential migrants of hope ,,,this is dedicated to their hardwork and sincerity .. Ramzan Mubarak,
what the customer cant digest ..he throws at my feet god has answered my prayers i gladly eat ..parts of a roti or grizzled tanduri meat ..luck by chance i cannot cheat ..what god put together you cannot delete in more ways than one i muslim beggar too am dead meat ..on my rolling seat ma ki ankh kaisi har kaisi jeet
This was a very solemn private function attended by close friends family relatives and Ms Dimpleji as I call her requested me not to take pictures , I met teary eyed Twinkle and her children, I told her how her late father loved my grand children.
Mr Khannas sisters his relatives friends were in attendance as the puja continued for almost an hour, Mr Subhash Ghai , Ms Honey Irani ,mother of Farhan Akthar was there and many close friends ..Moin Baig , Rahul Dholakia to name a few ..
After the havan ended I requested Dimpleji if I could take these pictures as memory she assented .. and I skipped lunch as I had a meeting call ..
