I Love You She Said

I Love You She Said, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
in his
libidinous
red hot
blooded
eyes
only
lust
she
read
she was
only a one
night stand
in his horny
head she
was the
momentary
cushion
of flesh
on his bed
they could
not would
not be wed
on the
mountains
they had
just met
did their
love survive
yes it did
as a picture
on the internet
as she held him
tenderly delicately
her body went wet
he had her eagle
spread in his net

If Walls Could Speak

If Walls Could Speak, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
resounding
pain in silence
so to speak
not in english
hindi sanskrit
hebrew or greek
the mighty carried
on the shoulders
of the weak ,,
as time plunders
each time he
sneaks only
a coward offers
the other cheek
walls of doom
deleted walls
created by
dwarfs and freaks
as they fall crumble
before they peak

Some Walls Stand Up Without Bricks Or Cement Concrete

Some Walls Stand Up Without Bricks Or Cement Concrete, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

some walls
refuse to fall
at anyones
feet a wall
of hope
a wall of
prayer
rising
from
devotion
from a
heartbeat
allah
be praised
an echo
of resurgence
on the street
a single call
for the poor
the mighty
the elite
shoulder
to shoulder
a single
fleet in
dust and heat

Tender & endangered Cow/Horse of Dimness
hands that voluntarily move and sketch
hope goodwill good friends they fetch
perspective prolonged outstretched
within lines curves blur a thought
he etched ..poets who paint
with light ...home wretched
thoughts that move
rants that retch...

she fell ... and she went on falling - effects of drug abuse

How Safe Are We As Poor Pilgrims Of India

How Safe Are We As Poor Pilgrims Of India, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Outside Ajmer station where I shot this on arrival from Mumbai , drug addicts drunkards were moving freely , waiting for the naive traveler ,, and are we safe ? I dont know , poor people are not even entertained by the cops . driven away mostly so outside is as bad when you enter a crowded train hounded by eunuchs ready to do bodily harm ,rogue TTs or rogue railway cops waiting to fleece the passenger at any given excuse I have seen much during my travels ,, I know the voice of the poor is never heard at all.

At times I too have been a victim because the TT thought I was a beggar , but than on seeing my Press Card moved away..simply because I travel barefeet ..I am not a social activist but a lot has to be done to make train travel safe from rowdies hooligans rogue elements who travel to make a fast buck on these pilgrim routes.

Indian Railways Has No Time Or Facility For The Poor People Of India

And even though they are aware about the pilgrms coming to Ajmer for the Urus of Khwajah Garib Nawaz which is held every year , the situation of the pilgrims , has not changed much , they were destined to suffer as the poor in India are treated worse than scums by a insensitive system..no proper toilet facility, no proper food , prone to food poisoning sickness disease..there are agencies doing their best here , but it is not enough as Ajmer Sharif Urus is the greatest pilgrimage movement in India.

And the pilgrim deserves basic safety basic comfort ...I have been coming here since 2005 , and nothing much has changed for the poor pilgrim..spiritual tourism is as important to the economy as well as overall prestige of our country.. with Hon Minster Mr Chiraneevi at the helm I am hopeful of things changing for the better ...

For Indian Railways Being Human Is A Million Light Years Away

Whether Ajmer Urus or Maha Kumbh the plight of pilgrims at the Station , or outside the station is a painful sight ..I did not shoot Dehradun Station so I cant say much about it during the Uttarkhand disaster ..

Indian Railways .. big bucks .. but all in all service sucks our bad luck..we are stuck..

I Am Considered A Beggar Too

I Am Considered A Beggar Too, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

at the maha kumbh
i begged on the banks
with my naga guru
a few coins leftovers
from the hands
of the hindus
at ajmer i begged
with the rafaees
the public gave
me alms they
thought i was
a beggar too
at vijapur
mehsana
a young boy
bought me
breakfast
gave me a Rs 5
coin shining new
a cup of tea
as added brew
i touched his head
blessed him
for his humanity
told him thank you
as hope in my beggars
bowl.. it tuned into
the only gift of
great value
humility
essence of
life ..i share
with you
