Aviary Sucks My Bad Luck

Aviary is down
my poems my blogs
now on hold my face
envisions a frown
urban brown
quintessential
clown..
aviary support
unresponsive
curt rude
their silence
propounds
Flickr customer
care cuts a sorry
figure as unresponsive
no answer no sound
as i go round and round
mouth gagged hands
bound framed within a
frame photo shopped
pathos ..a blogger
waiting to be found
art in the background
pain in the foreground
a lovelorn poet hits
the dirt ..sardonically
satirical profound
Venus on the mound


Jesus And The Muslim Beggar At De Monte Street Bandra

Our representatives that we voted to power locally  never really did much for this area an extension of Bandra Bazar Road ..This area is a gaothan , once a fishing village owing its ancestry to the earliest inhabitants of Bandra .. The East Indians .And as this area once belonged to the Portuguese it has its remains at a cornerstone a few blocks away from this place ,, it is a grotto and Novena is held every Wednesday.

I stayed in De Monte Street for some years , and I still pass by my old house and remember it fondly , I meet Mrs Gonsalves even now,  a widow   her daughters settled in Canada , her son died tragically.. This are was marked with cottages and fruit bearing trees under the pretext of repairing and in collusion with builder politician municipal rogues , the entire cottage would be pulled down and inits place ugly monstrous buildings hurriedly instructed on iron channels came up first was ground plus one , than surreptitiously it became ground plus two..

And when the rain…

Waiting For Hope On The Sidewalk

she sits silently
gestures with
her eyes
her eyes talk.
.people see
her walk..hearts
made of rock..
a few give her
some coins ,,,
her doomed
destiny all
doors locked

this is the fate of a
neglected muslim mother
you should not at all
be shocked ..she begs
round the clock

#WakeUpAkhilesh

your state is soon
going to be the newest
rape capital of india
an insult and a disgrace
after every rape you
offer rs 5 lac..
the humiliation
loss of honor
justified by your
reward to the victim
who loses her life
family loses face
the rapist  supported
by your crooked cops
a system defaced
buffaloes of your
minister are more
important than
safeguarding women
their fall from grace
netaji condones rape
boys will be boys
scars on the surface
you are not in danger
are you what a catch
phrase ..janta apko
maf nahi karegi ..
modi sarkar waiting to
throw you out put
you in your proper
place the saifai tamasha
your foreign junkets
law and order
governance
misplaced ..

soon your party will be lost
to Indian politics without
any trace..you will be
forgotten replaced ..

Her Husband Used To Drop Her At Bandra Hill Road To Beg..

This is what I was told by the caretaker of the Parsi Temple , and it was a very sad sight .And some time Muslim women  uneducated illiterate are married of early without their parents checking on the grooms antecedents and the next thing you know she has been married off to a lout..or an older man  as second wife ..

There are are so many cases and society just watches from afar ,,spreading Islam ins more important than removing the impediments that are bane of society..


And so I shoot the plight of Muslim beggars to bring their existence on the streets to the fore..
