Mumbai Ek Kachre Chi Kundi Ahey..

ऐ मालिक तेरे बन्दे हम ऐसे हों हमारे करम

ऐ मालिक तेरे बन्दे हम ऐसे हों हमारे करम, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. बड़ा कमज़ोर है आदमी, अभी लाखों हैं इसमें कमी
पर तू जो खड़ा, है दयालू बड़ा
तेरी किरपा से धरती थमी
दिया तूने हमें जब जनम
तू ही झेलेगा हम सबके ग़म
नेकी पर...

Dheere Dheere Bol Koi Sun Na Le

same wall
the cobbler

under the same
tree facing the
road all in all
each one at

brothers born
of the same

I Walked From Andheri East Highway Till Andheri East Station .. Shooting Hope And Humility

I Walked From Andheri East Highway Till Andheri East Station .. Shooting Hope And Humility, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
I finished my work at Canon Master care Service Center Natraj Rustomjee , than walked leisurely shooting the road that leads to the station besides I had to meet Assad Dadan and see his workplace for the first time ,,

I stopped at a juice shop had a lauki ka juice ,,that refreshed me for the walk ahead ,,most of the guys call me Posterwale Bawa .. after acting a cameo in Phata Poster Nikla Bawa ..

All these pictures were shot on my serviced Canon 7D ON 26 October 2013.
This roadside bag seller tailor was putting two new handles on my cloth bag...he charhed me Rs 50 ,,, at Bandra it would be double the amount.

वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी, वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी

वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी, वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी, वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी
इन काली सदियों के सर से, जब रात का आँचल ढलकेगा
जब दुःख के बादल पिघलेंगे, जब सुख का सागर छलकेगा
जब अंबर झूम के नाचेगा, जब धरती नग्में गायेगी
वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी

जिस सुबह की खातिर जुग जुग से, हम सब मर मर कर जीते हैं
जिस सुबह के अमृत की धून में, हम जहर के प्याले पीते हैं
इन भूखी प्यासी रूहों पर, एक दिन तो करम फर्मायेगी
वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी

माना के अभी तेरे मेरे अरमानों की क़िमत कुछ भी नहीं
मिट्टी का भी हैं कुछ मोल मगर, इन्सानों की क़िमत कुछ भी नहीं
इन्सानों की इज़्ज़त जब झूठे सिक्कों में ना तोली जायेगी
वो सुबह कभी तो आयेगी

Shetkari Mela Tar Desh Gela...

Shetkari Mela Tar Desh Gela..., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
if the farmer
dies the
nation dies
the farmers
suicide
uncalled
for sacrifice
the middle man
profits proliferate
humanity cries
politics of making
politicians rich is
now hope in disguise
onions beyond the
reach of the poor man
soon wheat and rice
the minister has his
milk coming to his home
every day except sunday
should suffice ..freebies
of his office his trappings
more than meets the eye
castrate the rapists
but what about scamsters
political crooks a thought
needs a reply...those
depleting the national
treasury with help
of our franchise
