Madam Najma Heptullahji, apko Ministership Mubarak Ho..





from the muslim beggars of mumbai

The Untouchables Of Muslim Society



eponymous but incongruously
called the minority begging
living below the poverty
line on your mercy charity
enslaved to bad times will
never be free .appeased only
by the political sanctimonious
class  our great nations tragedy
please do not compare them at
all to jains or parsis  an insult
to both those faith which respects
humanity ..these are the lost tribe
searching for hope justice equality
people sympathize with them
but marginalized .. the only reality

Some Lucky Muslims Are Born With A Silver Spoon




some muslims are born poor
die fade out very soon
call them minorities ..but
they are part of our nation
living in ghettos impoverished
communes ,, politicians  use them
as vote banks ..but to their pain
are immune .. once votes have
been garnered bring in the
bulldozers build condominiums
for the rich powerlords  tycoons
the fear of fate impending monsoon

Mama Why Is He Stealing Our Souls ..





snatching it away from our fleshy mold
mama i am feeling breathless very cold
watching all this bemused the wise baby
held comfortably in her mothers folds
her brother she scolds ..oh let him shoot us ..our story to the world out there must
be told ...baby was the only one in
total control her innocence her godliness
untouched by time and destiny behold
caught between here and there on
the threshold ..dreams on the street side
lying unsold,, this world emotionless
is ruled by the rich and the billfold

Media Photographer Only Shoot What Sells



why should they shoot muslim beggars
pray tell ..it is sunny leone poonam pandey rakhi sawant glitz glam you
all know well ..it is left to us street
bloggers to gather the filth smell
of denizens living in putrid hell
no u turns we dont have to satisfy
our clientele ..we shoot sorrow
bring it out in the open from where
it dwells ..we are not part of the media
cartel. against a system that reduces
humanity to beggary we rebel ..
through the camera the poetry
of life .. the passion pathos we retell

When The Morning Dawns



carrying her child in her arms
from her distant suburban home
she sets out to Bandra to beg
the  name of Allah her lucky charm
the day is awfully humid warm
her hungry child as flies swarm
her hidden face her turbulence
her woeful existence offers no balm
her line of fate blurred on her palm
she sits wait helplessly cool and calm
welcome to my world of beggars
veiled denizens of an animal farm

These are Muslim beggars caught in a cosmic swamp ..by time battered stomped

நன்றி

Shooting Pain..



i shoot pain
enduring pain
overcoming pain
as the rod pierces
the human flesh
from the other
cheek it comes
out again like
a arrow crowning
pain..

i shoot pain
as i feel pain
when i cut
my head with
a sword servant
of hussain .
a moment
held captive
to a memory
releasing my
angst from
every chain

yes i shoot pain
walking on embers
of burning coals
i shoot pain

pain the only human
emotion without caste
color creed or race
enjoins me with my
neighbor ..keeps
me sane ..hindu
muslim all feel pain

i shoot pain
