According to Nerjis Asif Shakirs maternal mother Roshan the Mundan removal of the hair of a new born child should be done within 6 days and the Akika in a weeks time.. So this Nerjis Asif Shakir after her Mundan on the 6 th day of her life on this planet.
I see her every day it is a ritual shoot a few pictures of her tryst with life with the Shakirs of Bandra as crazy as the Swiss family Robinson put mildly..
Last evening she slept in my lap and later when she awoke she looked deep into my eyes speaking to me through the silence of her soul..what lies ahead que sera sera whatever will be will be.. que sera sera..
Like me Marziya too has started shooting Nerjis Asif Shakir in earnest..the camera is an expression of the unseen that reveals truth through every frame ,
Her father Asif has a special attachment as she shares her birthday with e but he loves Marziya far too much too.. Marziya is the Queen we pamper we spoil...she is our first Grandchild who gave us another reason to live..
Nerjis Asif Shakir is a congenital think , always thinking what next as my next few pictures in this lot will show..Nerjis Asif Shakir too has moved out from Google+nothing personal Facebook Twitter are just about enough to handle for the time being..Google+gave her notoriety to fame as a Google+kid she was born the day she signed into Google +one day old child of cyberspace..
Now she is contend happy being Renie Ranvins god child and Indi Blogger.

I shot these pictures yesterday 22 July the owner of Rolex saloon Bandra Bazar Road came himself to remove her hair, because he is a religious Sunni Moslem with a beard out of respect to his religiosity I did not include him in my frame.
He was very careful laid Nerjis Asif Shakir on his lap like his own grand child and began removing her hair with a razor, but he also insisted that my wife wet her finger with honey and apply it on Nerjis Asif Shakis gums..
Mind you Nerjis Asif Shakir is going crazy as it is with the flash going of on her face from the first day of her life on this planet that is being documented by me.. Nerjis Asif Shakir is a very cyber savvy child she was launched the day I began my tryst with Google+
The same night she was born I posted her pictures on Flickr Facebook Twitter too..
Nerjis Asif Shakir was born on 17 July her fathers birthday and Shabbarat and on the eve of Wiladat e Imam e Zamana in keeping with her Shia heritage.. and her hair is being cut by a Sunni gentleman..
And her Godfather is an American Jew from Manhattan New York Dr Glenn Losack MD ,celebrity photo guru of her sister Marziya Shakir 3 1/2 year old youngest street photographer in the world.
When Marziya was born Dr Glenn Losack blessed her with a Nikon D 80 and as he could not make it to Mumbai I blessed Nerjis Asif Shakir with his camera too.
This is a new set nestled in her Nerjis Asif Shakir set.. and this evening 23 July was her Akika I went to the butcher Ebu Bhai another kind Sunni friend of our family who has his butchery at Noorani Lane and cut the neck of the goat my self, it is called salla the first cut.. the goat was young but huge and I carried the meat home which will be distributed among the poor at the Mosque.
So Nerjis Asif Shakir starts her life in the Shakir household with a bang..and keeps me honed to my camera...

Born on 17 July at Holy Family Hospital on her fathers birthday, she came home on 19th July to a new surroundings and my humble Nikon D 80 pays tribute to her journey that begins now in sheer humility and gratitude , she is more focused than Marziya , she loves to cry draw attention , every second, what she wants is her dad to lift her raise in the air gently and continuously, she is an action child.
With Marziya because she was my first grand child I shot trigger happy every single nuance but with Nerjis Asif Shakir I try to capture her moods in a few frames , there used to be a tiny antique camera a memorabilia that Marziya used as a toy I cant find it..
Nerjis Asif Shakir is Google Pluskin .. a Google+kid..with Marc Zuckerburg and Facebook Giant killer Vic Gundotra in her circle..
I keep going to her room to pick up gems her sparkling eyes and does she really think I am crazy,her sister Marziya shoots her too but reluctantly , not able to get the right perspective...
My family does not like photography, they hate pictures of the family plastered on Facebook walls but they watch me in silence , simply because Marziyas story board is visible to them and they now try to compare Nerjis birth with Marziya ..
The Day Nerjis was born she was already Google searched and was given a suitable Internet launch..
Marziyas birth did not evoke much curiosity or interest but a message from meof her arrival to my patrons friends has made Nerjis Asf Shakir a star in her house, everybody has welcomed her blessed her Mr Rajesh Khanna Shakti Kapoor Saab , Mrs Punam Sinha Kush Sinha Mr Rajat Rawail, and so many others to name a few including my Facebook friends ..
So I shall document her life as I documented Marziyas life at Flickr.com..my daughter in law is a very sweet kid herself, this her second gifted child, she is the finest mother takes personal care in the growth of her children..because she is a conservative Shia Muslim I have never posted her picture on the Internet ..this is my tribute to her stature as my daughter now and to her privacy..
Let it be known we Shakirs from Bandra are not camera centric or photographers but photography was thrust on by a God who is great photographer too.
Both my grand children's photo Guru is Dr Glenn Losack MD from Manhattan New York..its his blessings his camera the Nikon D80 that is their launch pad into cyberspace..
So I present you Nerjis Asf Shakir sister of Marziya Shakir..she is yours as much as mine.. Flickr Facebook Twitter Blogspot and Google+and if Renie Renie Indi Blogger will bless her too the circle will be complete.
