Happy New Year To All My Friends At Flickr

I thank all of you who follow me and those whom I follow I have learnt a lot from all of you ,,you all have added your bit to my street creativity ,,I cannot be you ..but I am inspired by you all.

However if I have hurt you intentionally unintentionally accidentally through my comments or by blocking you I seek your forgiveness ..

I only blocked those that had a lot of porn on their timeline ,,porn is not my subject of photography .

I have blocked my Hijra set here at Flickr because it serves as mere titillation and my pictures were being stolen.

I use Flickr as an archive I hardly interact here like earlier I dont know why ,,Flickr maybe the best photo management site but a lot needs to be done I think..

I think humbly I have promoted Flickr more on Twitter than Flickr will ever do on Twitter with their horrid choice of pictures as curator Wake Up Flickr get Real..there is more here than just sunsets and other chirpy timelines ,,

I am not on Facebook ..I am in self exile mode I post my archive on Twitter and Twitter has more impact on my people street photography .

I have hundreds thousands of pictures I shot saved on DVDs as I cannot buy hard drives so of late I am retreiving them and posting it as sets on my You Tube Timeline ,,and You Tube is million times more powerful than Flickr ,, I am posting my images as slideshows via Window Movie Maker as I am not adept at editing ..but yes I have a large collection of visual data that is nothing but original content .

Without boasting or showing off my You Tube views are

3,440 subscribers   3,423,350 views
videos since a year ..2226..

I hardly carry my camera like I once did ..I have two camera s both Canon presented by my ex boss in 2011 ,,Canon 60D Canon 7D .. but most of my streets shots are on mobile phone I gave away my HTC826 Desire paid a difference and got the OPPO FS 1 ..

I use my cameras only for events ..I used to teach my granddaughters Marziya and Nerjis both have relocated to their mothers hometown I miss them terribly but life has to go on.

So Happy New Year Happy 2017 from the barefeet beggar poet of Bandra ..

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..."
