Scavenging For Chicken Parts Food In The Garbage Dump At Bazar Road

I shoot this dump every morning in order to awaken the soul of Mr Ajoy Mehta head honcho BMC ,,One day I am sure he will see it and make amends . understandable that this is a market dump but can it not be managed without making it a eyesore for others who walk pass this place.. The local representatives the lone Congress Corporator have never seen this as civic sense in this part of Bandra is not as important as Pali Hill Bandstand or Carter Road.. Now imagine the Bandra Slums a few notch below this area .. the Bandra Bazar Town market will one day collapse held on bamboo beams .. and than perhaps everyone concerned will wake yup.. One thing I am sure if by chance PM Narendra Modiji visits the house of BJP Mumbai President Advocate Ashish Shelars house this garbage dump will have a huge screen with a banner welcoming our dynamic Prime Minister .. no garbage no garbage dump.. for sure till that time we suffer , and those who see my garbage pictures day in and day out suffer too..this…

Najma 3 Year Old Muslim Beggar

I have been documenting Muslim beggars as a storyboard of pain , Muslims those rich wealthy Muslims will be buying expensive goats not one but many and the ostentatious display of wealth is how I see it ,, for charity they distribute exercise books but if they educated a few girl children this lady and her child wont be begging on the streets of Bandra every Friday .

I began shooting Najma the Muslim child beggar much before she could say Allah Ke Nam Pe Do .. she was very tiny and her mother protected her from the rains sun within the folds of her burkha .

Now Najma is 3 year old , she has come a long way , her father cannot provide for them so they beg..and there are two mother and child I have documented in this lane near my house ,both my granddaughters have shot them too ,,one of them has a son.. Nerjis was a toddler herself,,

I will shoot her video but I was in a hurry I gave her some money and these are after thoughts on a blank post ,, I am posting these words at Facebook...a…

Hooked

I am on Flickr since 2007 I am following 2000 people and I have 1800 followers , I am blocking over 1500 people ,,for no fault of theirs they have fetish for porn..and I cannot add them I mean I understand artistic nudes but hardcore porn is beyond me ,, than I block those who add me with fake names and no profile photo ..I have had some great friends very old friends and they got out of hand using me as a punching bag because of their fucked dried up sex lives or whatever megalomania I blocked them too..

There was a person a typical Bengali shooting landscapes a part poet and he got upset seeing Naga cocks on my Kumbh pictures and got nasty in his comments I dumped him too.. I mean I dont understand when you add me you take me with the baggage of my quirks idiosyncrasies ,,I dont demolish a persons character because of the pictures he shoots ,,you want to see some of my images but are not happy with the the cultural ritualistic bloodletting scenes I shoot beats me ,, Fuck dont you rea…

Have Faith Will Travel

Since the time Maha Mandleshwar of Juna Akhara Swami Avdesh Anandji gave me his personal card at the 29 August Shahi  Snan Nasikh Kumbh 2015 I have added it on the reverse side of my Press Card ,, I have two one to shoot Hindu events and another simple smaller one for other events like Eid Namaz Moharam etc,,

This picture was shot by my dear friend Hemant Sawant of Ganesh Color Lab Lalbagh.. I keep calling it a shop but it is a full fledged photography studio..

And with this lot I end my Lalbagh Chya Raja First Day Darshan after that I shot the streets and headed to Ganesh Gully Raja , from there to Tejukaya Raja ,, I shot of both Tejukaya and Lalabagh Chya Raja now uploading at You Tube ,,,

After this marathon shoot I had a single bata wada ,,,some water ,,,I needed some sustenance though I avoid street junk food.

The Ganesha Pandals around Bandra will be shot by my 4 year old granddaughter Nerjis Asif Shakir ,,, she loves to shoot Ganesha Bappa Morya,
