What Is He Thinking .. The Muslim Beggar

He is the same beggar I had shot a few days back and given him money and Advocate Ashish Shelar our MLA had seen me with him and given him Rs100 ,,So I tried to wonder what he was thinking ,,And he is new to our Bandra Bazar area and he stands at this corner ..begging silently without opening his mouth , his one hand stretched out ,

And they come to Bandra West with a cosmic hope , and there are a lot of folks who give without letting the left hand know what the right hand is doing.

The two senior most beggars of Bandra Bazar Road are Khwajah Bhai and Jaffar Bhai.. and both are well known and beg with humility dignity and grace .

And I would rather shoot beggars , than go  a  hundred miles away to shoot caves or the Vasai Fort ruins ,, I would never think of going to places that I visited last week as a tourist guide but I did it without gain or profit merely as Indians we follow a tradition Devo Atithi Bhava that means Guest is God and Hospitality is akin to Godliness ..I kept my wo…

The Core Essence Of Photography Is Humility

arrogance and pride
your expensive lenses
camera your egoistic
soul deprived
are more dead as a
photographer than
alive tears on the
soul of a tourist guide
did you really shoot
india the camera
replied ..

And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg'd with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest he returning chide,
"Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?"

Please Dont Shoot Pictures The Way I Shoot

i use my DSLR
as an amateur
fuck f stops
rules i refute
i dont compose
i merely point
i shoot what i
was destined
to capture on
the soul of
my conscience
as a poetic
tribute to
people whose
souls i steal
as they watch
me mute ..
held in cages
on my Flickr
timeline beggar
beggar kids
child mother
wise man astute
failed monks
drugaddicts born
dreamers searching
for their roots ..
yes it is souls of
these disillusioned
mortals i loot

please dont shoot like me and insult your vision  dear photographer of repute from a great institute  ..carry on with your elitist photographic pursuit ..may god make you an artist absolute ,,

me on my part i use my camera as a prostitute fucking her mind her cosmic reach..shooting the children of a lesser god destitute ,,i could still shoot pictures without my cosmic camera a will resolute ,,it was an accidental tragedy that we met on the same route ,,your pride your arrogance may it bear fruit

My Morning Starts With Garbage

And this is Bandra Reclamation very close to Hotel Rang Sharda , I am going towards the MET Cricket grounds for my daily morning walk..what beats me is that the size of the garbage bin is far too small for the size of the slums in the vicinity ,,All the slum residents take a potshot to throw the garbage and most of the time the aim misfires .

And stringent fines even caning wilt not stop the people from littering it is in the DNA of the Mumbaikar to litter it runs in his bloodstream and he loves to throw garbage out of the window , sometimes he loves to deliberately throw the garbage in his neighbors porch and the Mumbaikar also loves to pee on the streets , shit and spit it is all part of his DNA.

So I have tried to be less myopic and now try to see garbage not as garbage but as Art .. the ultimate street Art and Mumbaikars are born Garbage Artists , crows cats dogs goats love this awesome street Art . they come plunder this art adding their own skills of re arrangement ,, like flow…

My You Tube Videos

I am learning to shoot videos , and I wish I had more knowledge of technique and confidence ,

I wish I had shot the few places like Ajmer , Haji Malang Zinda Shah Madar on video.. and even now I have not shot videos on my DSLR but on my mobile phone Motorola G ,

I shot these videos to give you a feel of my world ,,as stills do not give that much needed sense of pathos passion or reality .

I shot all these videos lately and simply and as I saw it , and my videos are a tribute to the common people of my Mumbai be it the Municipal Conservancy staff with no safety gear or the ear cleaners confused lost as they will be evicted from where they sit at Bandra Talao once it is renovated .

I wish I could join some video classes but things are not to fine my end ,,and I will learn to shoot videos edit them one day ,, learning is the only path towards wisdom.
