The Beggars Hand .. Taragadh

The Beggar Poet At The Graves Of The Hijra Saint And His Biological Son Off Taragadh


This is series of the Hijra Saint worshipped by the transgender , nestled in the mountains off Taragadh ... I shot this grave twice .. but pictures of this trek pilgrimage are private not for public view ,,

All my pictures of the hijras were stolen by rogue Flickr members , so whatever I shot two years from 2012 and 2013 at Ajmer is not for general public either ,.. only I can see them..I deleted my Hijras of India website too..A part of Indian public with interests in transgender are immature voyeuristic with lecherously repressive libido.. dont value the documentation of their lives .

So I decided my new pictures on the hijra community shall be kept off limits for everyone ...

ask him
who is gandhiji
he wont know
neither nehruji
or subhash chandra
bose ..the capital
of india is hunger
he crows ..
he is street smart
on the streets
he grows
salman sharukh
akshay his bidus
all politicians his
foes ..cops he
hates who rob
him of his earning
hit him with lathi
blows ..a moment
in a beggars life
i humbly froze

One Side They Throw Acid On Her Face ..On The Other Hand Affected By Leprosy Saving Grace


a womans life
only a woman
will understand
man conceited
arrogant her
destruction
plans calls
her mother
sister wife
but demeans
her womanhood
on demand
uses her
abuses her
maligns her
the sad story
of our land
durga shakti
the story of
weeping
riverbeds
missing
sand
political
vendetta
getting even
murdering
whistle
blowers
our equity
brand
need i
expand
the brevity
of my poem
sleigh of

Who Will Hear Her Cries


forced to beg by
their parents
or get beaten
by the bhais
beggar mafia
controls plans
their young lives
live or survive
dead or alive

Saving The Girl Child Is Not Part Of A Political Or Social Agenda



no one
not even
a very
busy god
to defend
her from
the time
she entered
her mothers
womb a curse
of her gender
tragic and tender
immune to karmic pain..
what could offend her
her final surrender

apane saaye se bhi log darane lage
ab kisiiko kisi par bharosa nahi
ab kahaan jaayen ham

I Shoot The Underbelly Of A Womans Pain


condemned
from birth
to a life of
torture
brutalization
eternal pain
woman born
in captivity
always in
chains
but the
spirit of
a goddess
within her
soul she falls
rises again
beauty
symbolizing
her cosmic
intelligence
in the palms
of her brain
she is sometimes
sober kind humane
she is shakti
a force insane
the glory of a
mountain
the humility of
a plain..

here she begs
veiled does not
complain..

Cow Horse Ponders ...


of a mystic man
with a broken hand
who shoot captures
the souls of beggars ..

the pain the filth
the stench the squalor
once they too were happy
unlike now what they are

begging to make ends meet
on a pilgrims path beyond
borders..unmindful to others
misery karmic fate bothers

poignant pause of poetry '
kindred soul..healers
changing life for those
with camera soul stealers
