I Steal Souls Of The People I Shoot

simple people
unknown faces
silent awestruck
mute ..parched
skins parched
throats  thirsting
for hope  elusive
wanton forbidden
fruit ..people i was
destined to capture
in the cosmic cage
of my camera pay
gracious tribute

i knowingly
unknowingly
steal souls of
the people i
cosmically
shoot ..


poetry
of life drama of
life ..i humbly
head bowed
shoot ..

The Uttar Pradesh Model Of Women Empowerment

she did not opt for
the state gift of a tablet
her world of illiteracy
ignorance an insular
hamlet ..why would
she use the net .
back bent in debt
begging on the
streets of dewa sharif
a tragic tale of survival
that relives retells
 a memory a pilgrim
as and when we met
through the camera
pangs of poetry rise
surge you shoot what
you get .. a picture of
a doomed lifetime
can you really forget
