Christians In Mumbai Form Human Chain On 14 March

This evening I was invited by my friends at the Catholic Sabha and my godfather Fr Juan to come and join them at Bandra SV Road .. to take part in the human chain  6pm to 6.15 pm.. This chain began at Churchgate till  Dahisar and Thane I shot the Bandra segment .

The desecration of Churches in Delhi , the insulting remarks against Mother Theresa the Beef Ban without giving time to the butchers to get rid of their stocks or getting them alternative employment and here my heart goes out to the poor daily wage worker the butcher at the Beef Shops .

And do people in Mumbai care for the aged , I dont think so Mumbaikars are far too selfish by nature , they hate complications stay away from people ..I can imagine her joy if someone bought her a hot soup,,,someone from her building but her closest neighbor is a washing woman dhobis.

Killing The Cow With Garbage Is Worse Than Slaughter

Protection Of Cow Has Been More Successful Than The Protection Of Women In India

Bhains Ki Vyamshala ..Beef Ban Ke Bad No Chara Ghotala

Today Is The Hungry Ragpickers Feast Day

He is searching for food among the plates thrown in the garbage  at Bandra Bazar Road and hunger can  make a man into an animal..he had hidden his face as he ate the left overs .. and the ragpicker even this guy is a drugaddict , I had shot him at Bandra Reclamation he is a migrant from Odisha.

Of late I have been shooting garbage sites as art form and the ragpickers the foot soldiers of Modijis Swach Bharat and perhaps they do a better job in keeping our Bandra  clean than Bandra Municipality ...whatever there shortcomings or their habits ,they scavenge the garbage sites and the dirty street corners of Bandra .
