Street Photography Explained

from wikipedia

Street photography is photography that features the human condition within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. The subject of the photograph might be absent of people and can be an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.

Framing and timing are key aspects of the craft, with the aim of creating images at a decisive or poignant moment. Much of what is now widely regarded, stylistically and subjectively, as definitive street photography was made in the era spanning the end of the 19th Century through to the late 1970s; a period which saw the emergence of portable cameras.

The Girl Child Was Born To Be Displaced

born in one house
to another house
her destination
her fate misplaced
if the husband is
good her in laws
are good no problems
will she face but if they
are rotten she will be
traumatized suffer
marital rape  burnt
for dowry her cosmic
fate defaced ..when she
dies by another rich lass
to be milked she will
be replaced ..hindustani
parampara hindustani
sanskriti ..bas lao dahez
nahi toh jala di jaogi ,,
hai ma bap ke kalejay
pe lagti hai thes.. when they
see their only daughters
burnt face ..hai ram
ya allah ..oh god
even you are helpless
the girl childs destiny
even you wont embrace

our own actions mock our race

When This Homeless Umbrella Lady Died She Left Everything Behind

at bandra reclamation
under a tattered umbrella
she made her home .
from the rains sun the
umbrella served as a
dome .she lived here
without ever standing
up dwarfish like a gnome
when she died the municipality
lifted her carcass skin n bones
as her mouth starving foamed
she never begged like a beggar
the streets she never roamed
she groomed herself bathing
with a bucket of water her
hair she combed .. my grand daughters
marziya and nerjis gave her their pocket
money ..humility is what she taught them
Jai Shree Ram Om Shanti Om..

Second Chance

everybody even god deserves a second chance …while media juggles truth public with a blindfold watches democracy’s dance

Cobbler Cobbler Mend My Shoes
