Bahurani.. The Dance Performer Hijra Of Mumbai

I met her lighting a cigarette at the pan shop in the Bandra slums I walked up to her and it turned out that she had met me a very long time back at Santa Cruz,,I asked her if I could take a few shots of her , she consented I shot 4 frames to add to my documentary of 20500 images of the Hijras of India shot exclusively for myself and disabled from public view ,,
She was going to a Muslim wedding Nikah with her troupe to dance but she was grumbling business was bad ,, and told me in chaste Hindi .. yeh mua acche din ne barbad kar diya hamko... translated she said that the promise of the elusive good days has destroyed her dreams and her aspirations ,,she went on nowadays even people have become stingy misers and dont empty out their pockets that thy did during the Congress times , than she elaborated she said there were more crooks scamsters scoundrels who were rich loaded now they have all disappeared .
I thanked her and after I had moved away I realized as an after thought I should have shot her video,, but I was in a hurry and had no time ,

Swach Bharat .. The Ethos Of India From Within Needs To Be Cleaned

our suited booted topmost brass
is busy selling India like no one has
 his deafening overwhelming silence
has its own quintessential class this too
will pass an incident in Dardi beef lynching
a man was murdered inhumanly grossly crass
you dont throw stones at houses when your
own is made of glass ..this cant be progress
development alas vote made me a jackass
the soul of the minority community maligned hurt
harassed they needed his healing touch his holistic
hands on their heads ..not this fathomless chasm
tears on the soul of mohomed akhlaqs body lying
neglected forgotten an indian first on a bed of grass
