Once I reached Ajmer , the ticket was a gift from a lover of Khwajah Garib Nawaz ..I arrived on the eve of Chatti 5 May and headed straight for Puskar where my close friend Raj Tilak and Niru Bullet were waiting for me , Raj Tilak took me to a friends hotel I washed up and shot the Ghats , and because the camera is not allowed at Brahma Mandir Pushkar I asked Raj Tilak a local to shoot a few shts on my mobile phone ..
Even in the Temple sanctum the priest would not allow us to shoot ..
In the evening I headed back to Ajmer to my host Peersab Fakhru Miya Hujra No6 s house ..
I shot the eve of the Chatti function at Peersabbs terrace , but keeping my poor health in mind , I shot less ..I met my Dam Madar Malang Peer Masoomi Baba , Rafiq Ali Baba too.
I met my transgender friends at Moti Katla refreshed memories but I did not shoot much.. I think I have exhausted myself ..I have no passion shooting them
I shot the beggars and Dhai Djinn Ka Jhopda , but this time the locals were happy to have seen me on screen in Phata Poster Nikla Hero.
From Raj TIlak who is a iron smith I bought Daggers ..for cutting my head during Moharam Ashura.. I intend to use two daggers simultaneously .
The blades can cut through bone leave aside flesh.
I have just reached home at 3.45 pm today..
I did not access the net at Ajmer ..
And so I start a new series of my barefeet journey at Ajmer Urus 2014 with the words
of Khwajah Garib Nawaz ..Garibon Ka Datta
"Shah hast Hussain, Badshah hast Hussain
Deen hast Hussain, Deen Panah hast Hussain
Sar daad na daad dast, dar dast-e-yazeed,
Haqqaa key binaaey 'La ila' hast Hussain"
I am perhaps the only Muslim shooting Lalbaugh Chya Raja for over 20 years or more ,,thanks to Mr Sudhir Salvi head honcho of the Mandal.....
