My Third Visit To The Bonesetter Of Bandra SV Road

When I got this hairline fracture I was not aware of it due to my diabetes , it is later I felt pain and had to stop my daily walks at MET Cricket Grounds .

I came to Nizam bhai who treated and massage my leg by applying lep .., the net visit it was his assistant who massaged and applied lep.

 I am able to walk and I walked a lot today and met Nizam  bhai this time  shot his second video... he is hardly aware of the Internet or You Tube

But he is a very good god fearing man and respects me a lot as I have been coming here for last 15 years or more , he charges me reasonably too , he has a holistic qualities in his massage .. with ayurvedic paste known as Lep,.

Sab Ka Sath Sab Ka Vikas Yeh Zinda Lash

People are unhappy , simply because even after an year they are still waiting for Good Days and the people , by which I mean the common man , the working man of Mumbai is totally disillusioned .. people are jobless ,money is in short supply and everyone among the slumdwellers shanties is grumbling ,, it seems that the core issues have been hijacked by hollow empty words ,, and a misplaced sense of direction ,, animals are being protected while the poor man is becoming a slave to a system that lacks compassion and even humanity ,,

First if there was a law and order problem you went to the police station now people are scared as the Police Inspector if he or she  has had a bad day might just throw the book at you ,,fine you Rs 2000 for creating nuisance and let the drunkard go who was threatening you on the road , and imagine custodial deaths , bribes taken by rogue police officers and now there is competition to the cops from fake cops ,, who are also bent on making big bucks ,, so wh…

Muslim Society Should Empower Muslim Beggar Ladies To Teach The Holy Koran

Firstly there would be no cases of Arabic male teachers raping 5 year girls for sure ,, I mean surely the beggar mother could be trained and be deputed to madrsas where girls are taught Arabic.. Most of the Muslim poor women do know the Holy Koran and this would be better than begging like this mother carrying her child seeking alms on the streets of Ajmer during the Urus .

There should be ways by the Ulemmas to rehabilitate these women teach them some profession , cooking stitching , and the rich among the Muslims should donate sponsor such projects , what is needed is a change in thinking but than Muslim society at times can be so anti Women that I hardly see hope.. I am shocked seeing parents begging along with their daughters and in this regard the Kashmiri beggar migrants  will be found begging with their grown up daughters in Bandra or Mahim.

I am merely a photographer I document the pain of the poor segments of Muslim society ,instead of money one could buy  them ration , clot…

Why Are You Stealing My Soul She Said

i told her i was merely
taking her picture
but she had already
entered my mind
within the cosmic
camera in my head
she told me she was
begging to pay for
the illness of her son
the only way left to
earn her bread i
asked her if her
husband was dead
but the unbearable
pain her marital
misery the abuse
on her face i read
her face hidden in
a veil her eyes
pierced my soul
as she turned
away from me
walked ahead
i rushed up to
her pleadingly
i gave her a few
hundred rupee
notes ashamed
from her presence
i stealthily fled

yes i had stolen her soul..
within the soul of my poetry
where it was accidentally held
dedicated to my friend meld
who lives on the other side of
paradise away from my hell

Mother Child Begging At Ajmer

hunger
thirst
hopelessly
they wander
at this spiritual
fair a circle within
a square gasping
for air ..a few coins
here a few coins there
where is her husband
is he watching her from
afar forcing her to beg
he dares ..would she be
begging if she was educated
though the slits of her veil
into my questioning soul she
stares .she is a victim hunted
like a prey.. will god busy in
yemen syria iraq has time to
hear her prayers ..does the
mullah really care ..the silence
of the minarets ..she is scared

If The Muslim Woman Was Educated She Would Not Be Forced To Beg

Muslim society gives Muslim women a raw deal , as Muslim women have just one purpose get them married early use they for manufacturing kids and if the husband gets tired of her he utters Talaq three times and the marriage is annulled and with the Mullah in collusion its easily readily done ,, and thus Muslim society watches silently without doing anything for the divorced woman.. she is left to fend for herself , she is driven out in most cases the parents of the woman dont accept her back and here I salute her instead of doing what some women in desperation do, she humbly takes to begging .. and I have met many Muslim women begging on the streets with their children they were forcibly married of to useless Muslim youth ..most of these youth were boozards druggaddicts gamblers but it did not matter , most of them were married of to older men to work as cattle in an animal farm.. take care of the sickly first wife .. and I shoot these women when I see them here in Mumbai or on the lan…

If There Is A Beggar Mafia In Ajmer Than It Is In Collusion With Cops And People In High Places

This was shot 5 years back and every time I went back to Ajmer during the Urus , the sea of beggars was always on the rise , near the Taragadh path towards the mountains there is a huge colony of beggars living in makeshift tents eating living defecating .. and they are happy as Ajmer is hope for them and thanks to the Holy Saint despite the  sufferings hardshiips they return home with ample money and surely someone gets a dividend call it protection money , or call it the unseen beggar mafia with its ruthless tentacles ..and every Urus there are the regular beggars and new ones too.

And the Rajasthan government watches from the corner ..and the only one who enjoy the bounty of the state machinery are the VVVIPS  they get to the Dargah without being hindered ,the cops literally licking their ass .the common man has to struggle to move ahead and the cops at times can be  rude offensive after all it is not their religion..but I have met some good humble god fearing cops too who help th…
