I met Jesus in School and I still meet him wherever I go .



I met Jesus in School and I still meet him wherever I go .
Does he follow me or do I follow him I do not know on the Soul of my street poetry he grows ..what I could not see to my cosmic camera eye he shows ..touching the essence of my nature as the winds blow ..I found him at John the Baptist Methodist Church Colaba in 1955 ..he let me in through the doors ..and later at the sacristy of Holy Name Cathedral when I met Fr Leslie Ratus his wisdom I stored and than my alcoholic stupor Yacht Casbah Irani he held me did not let me drown pulled me out of my drunken dilemma thanks to the jazz notes of Uncle Joe of Waroda Road .
So now I Shoot Jesus in all his forms summer winter downpour .
Jesus too is the name of Humanity essence and the core ...blood sweat tears iron and ore ..

Mount Mary,,my 5.65 walk today



After my tennis session got over I walked from MET Tennis Courts towards Peter Dias Road and from there walked up the steps towards Mount Mary and exited out through Kane Road to Bandstand promenade I met a friend Asif Khan and we continued the walk towards Waroda Road we parted at the Bazar and I headed home .
I completed this walk in 1 hour 23 minutes I did not shoot much .

Searching for the Restless Soul of Man at Bandra Talao .




Fetid lungs of Bandra as I see it now we Indians are hypocritical by nature we don't care a shit about children being raped women assaulted abused acid flung on their faces we are concerned about protecting the cow ..we vote the master of rhetoric oratory not progress or development and 15 lakhs in our empty back accounts hillariously conned somehow ..
Mera Desh ek Sapnon ka Gaon 5 Sal karo intezar baki sab bhool jao ..tumhara vote beech samandar main bangaya kagaz ki nao...Babri Masjid jab toot rahi thi violin Baja rahe the Hindutva ke betaj badshah Mr Narsimha Rao .ab Congress chahti hai yeh batein bhuli Bisri inhe mat yad dilao ..
Plate pe nayi government Ne diya hai Sunhere sapnon ka pulao. Bhai chup chap khate jao warna ISIS sympathizer ke ilzam main dhar liye jaoge waqt ke ham sab ghulam ..maro ya marjao..die or be dead ..admi ko itna mat satao.

The Man Who Walks From Juhu To Dadar With this Board .





I was buying bloodworms for the flower horns at Sweet Home Aquarium Bandra SV road I called him out talked to him and began shooting his video he has been doing this on his own creating awareness about child care ..don't teach them about good or bad but first teach them good values ..He is from Gwalior MP .
And this was a street story I shot I had seen him before but we could not connect ..and I realized as a street photographer I can only shoot those stories that God wants me to share with all of you and I don't really need my DSLR s for stories such as this that cosmically activate the third eye of Shiva in my camera phone ..you have to first shoot pictures that automatically become street stories I call all this poetry of Life my prodigious prolific Bandra Blogs .

I am the Resurrection and the Life




When I was very young studying at Holy Name High School I got beaten by my father I was a mischievous child ,, I decided to run away from home ,, I was very close to Fr Stephan Nazareth and he had moved to St Andrews Church Bandra ..so I took a train to Bandra walked to the church and met Fr Stephan Nazareth I did not want to go back home ,, I used to call this father the singing priest and those days he taught me Catechism the subject that I had voluntarily opted for instead of Moral Science ,,at our school.. so he had made a great impression on me ,,those days .
He fed me than took me to Bandra Station gave me some money too and told me to go home ,, and that one kind deed changed my life forever ,, I never forgot him and a few years before his death I shot his pictures he had moved to RC Church Colaba ..through him I got a chance to shoot the Afghan Church too.
Fr Stephan Nazareth was a great humble soul,, and one of the reasons why I cosmically bond with this iconic 400 year old grand church.
After Fr Stephan Nazareth it was late Fr Peter Drego who I befriended at a function of Jesuits at St Peter Church and we remained friends till his untimely death..
This was a blank post merely a picture and it was my life and my resurrection back to life thanks to Fr Stephan Nazareth.. I had planned to leave Mumbai and never come back.. but he sent me back home ,, a childs memory that re awakens each time I shoot this church.
I thought of sharing it ,, with you.
