Facebook Friends Request

All my posts on Facebook are marked only for Friends but the same post that I post at Flickr or Twitter or Blogspot is marked for public,, I somehow dont identify with the Facebook general faceless public at all.
Firstly I am sure I am known for the genre I shoot ,,I shoot India ,,and I shoot a India of rituals customs and its diverse religiosity ,,I shoot Hindu India be it the religious feasts the Kumbhs ,, I shoot Shiasm being a Shia myself ..Moharam ,,I shoot Sufism ,,the Dargahs the various Sufi orders of India including Chishtiya Nizami Rifai Malangs Qalandris ,, I am part of a Sufi Malang order too,,
My main documentation is over 68000 blogs on Hinduism as Hope and Hindutva as Message of Universal Peace ,,is on the Naga Sadhus Naga Babas and Aghoris ,, My Naga Guru is Shri Vijay Giri Maharaj Triveni of Juna Akhara .
My photo blogs are stories of India ..all posted publicly at my other sites ..
Now people will add me if I identify with their rituals or customs ,,
So I add the GSB community without checking for mutual friends or their profile ..I have a great cosmic connect with this community ,,
But others I look for the mutual friends that connects me with them..otherwise I delete all requests ,, I dont want to be part of your political rant your bullying rabid bigotry .. I will add you if you are a serious photographer ,, I dont add people from across the border simply because though we maybe Shiasm my Shiasm is attached to the culture of my country ,,,I dont relate to them geographically or otherwise ,, I have friends but that is it ,, I refuse to add anymore ,, and this has nothing to do with politics either ,,I am apolitical I belong to no party ,, at all,
If you send me a message before sending me a friend request would make the transition into my mind heart more human.. just adding me for fuck sake ,, dosent help me or you for the matter ,,
I dont add hijras ..and I have no issue with your choice of sexuality but I am not interested in your pictures of genitalia and your choice of porn in most cases .
I thought I had to get this off my system .. the picture is of me and my Dada Guru ,, the Guru of my Guru shot at the Maha Kumbh 2013 .
As I was bought up as a kid among Christians I have a soft corner for them and I shoot the Christian Ethos of Mumbai... feasts churches crosses ,,,I am grateful those who added me to their friends list ,, You guys and ladies are the best set of friends I have here on Facebook.. Stay Blessed .. May God Grant all your wishes .
This will be posted publicly at Flickr .. nowadays I blog at Facebook than copy paste to Flickr ,,,

Ek Shahenshah Ne Banake Yeh Haseen Tajmahal Ham Gareebon Ki Mohabbat Ka Udaya Hai Mazak..

Ek Shahenshah Ne Banake Yeh Haseen Tajmahal Ham Gareebon Ki Mohabbat Ka Udaya Hai Mazak.., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. The Taj Mahal is a subject of many Urdu poems and film songs, and much to my surprise, they're not all complimentary.

This is the standard line, from a very beautiful song written by Shakeel Badayuni:

"Ek Shahanshaah Ne Banavaa Ke Hasi.N Taajamahal
Saarii Duniyaa Ko Muhabbat Kii Nishaanii Dii Hai"

(In having the beautiful Taj Mahal built, an emperor has given the whole world a token of love"

Here is Sahir Ludhianvi's take:

Ek shahanshah ne bana ke haseen Taj Mahal, hum garibon ki mohabbat ka hai udaya mazak’

"In building the beautiful Taj Mahal, an emperor has made a joke of the love of us poor ones..."
