He Finally Got Freedom From The Satraps Of Uttar Pradesh

north indian muslim of uttar pradesh
caught in a vortex of deceit between
two parties such was his fate ..he voted
considering them gods but he was used
by their devious machinations hook line
sinker and bait ..trampled sometimes
under the dead weight of an elephant
or taken for a ride on a cycle ..he got
akkal very late now perhaps he has
attained freedom from dire straits
one nation one country beyond
caste color creed or state ..

acche din ane wale hain..he dreams
of peace hope harmony ..he waits

We Indians Are Born Dreamers Shot by Nerjis Asif Shakir 2 Year Old

through our votes
dreams we purchase
from dream merchants
long distant happiness
we gladly hope to embrace
we are confident but also
fools on the surface
sometimes taken for a ride
left on the sidewalk. without
trace all in all it is part of our
DNA ..that dreams we chase
acche din anewala hain  ab ki
bar ya agli bar just in case

a picture shot by a two year old
child - man his shortcomings his
fall from grace caught in a frame
within a frame street photography
is not just shooting a picture ..but

a situation made sure you came
on the soul of humanity to lay
your claim inscribe your name

Perhaps The Muslim Vote Too Wanted To Go For Change ...Instead of Corruption Peace Humanity Progress In Exchange

Hazrat Abbas, the step-brother of Imam Hussain, sought the Imam's permission to fetch water for the thirsty children in their camp. To restrain Abbas from provocation, he was asked to take the alam [a standard with a metal crest crowning the flag] in one hand and the mashkeeza (camel-leather water-bag) in the other.

For Shias, the martyrdom of Hazrat Abbas has special significance.
