The Gutter Of Life

on the banks
of a gutter
she waits
she was
born into
a life she
hates .
the muslim
beggar girl
in dire straits
crooked shadows
falter appear straight
the muezzins call
cant be late
they rush towards
the mosque gates
throwing a few coins
post haste ...a single
life what a waste ..
bitter sweet taste
charity misplaced
human dignity
on the soul of
godliness defaced

Mera Desh Mahan

hath main
ki pehchan
har neta ne
kholi hai
apni dukan
bechte hain
khab roti
kapda aur
lete hain
vote dur
karten hain
apni thakan
hawa dedi
free main yeh
hai unka bada
ehsaan ..bakshi
hamri jan ..jai
bharat jai neta
jai hindustan

allah meherban
to gadha pahelwan

Bad, bad panda!

Bad, bad panda!

A Childs Healing Touch On The Soul Of A Muslim Beggar

these few coins
are all yours ..
said nerjis to
the muslim beggar
of bandra bazar
on her way to
school happy hours
learning humanity
not found in her
play school text book
so far..touch heal
god removes all
pain all scars ..
through the
blessings of a child
in his true image
by far gods
garden children
are his flowers

Brother Photographer What Did You See That Made You Shoot Me

i did not
answer her
it was her
in the wings
to take her place
is what struck me
tired anxious weary
to supplement her
mothers earnings
hurriedly ..only
the veil was missing
too early ,, i shoot
beggars beggars
shoot me ,,,is this
my beggarly destiny
cosmically tragically
held captive to my
camera ...holistically
enslaved yet not free
