The Poetry Passion and Pathos of my Bald Head .

Much before I was plagued with 3 diabetic boils that after wrong treatment went out of control I had no choice but to shave off my tresses .
I have grown dreads I have had extensions but my scalp is far too weak to take the weight of the dreads so I chopped them off years back .
In 2011 I was initiated as a Dam Madar Malang ...these guys have huge heads rolled up dreads over 18 to 20 feet long ..I was tempted to grow my dreads again than came the boils and I have been shaving my head every week at Rolex salon Bandra Bazar I get it shaved by Anees Bhai the senior hairdresser as he is careful and takes care of not touching my boils .
I hate my Bald pate .
But there is no option the healing process is very slow ..first they caused me a lot of pain but now there is one boil that gets on my nerves .
And the heat and humidity aggravate the boils giving in to itching and scratching .
But I think I have decided now to grow my hair .
Though it is during Moharam Ashura and Chehlum when I cut my head with two daggers that my scalp becomes unmanageable.
But I won't stop cutting my head .
I have other health problems my gall bladder stones and this is when I am on a sticky wicket in Ramadan I start bleeding and urinary tract gets blocked so I am caught between the deep sea and my comittments .
This year too Marziya will fast she takes after my wife and now Nerjis only 5 insists she too wants to fast .
But I have not seen Marziya Nerjis for over 2 months ...and that is driving me plumb crazy .
In the afternoon I was at Mr KRK s house .
And he is one of my most loyal patron ...he loves to wear suits and they suit him too .
Despite the fact he does not have a 56 inch chest he commands respect ..and he gets it easily .
I was planning to go to Bandra Talao but it's too hot so I came home directly from Lokhandwala MHADA.

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..."
