Nerjis Asif Shakir .. Charity Begins On The Streets, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
The old lady in the picture is the Umbrella Lady of Bandra Reclamation , she is a homeless denizen of our city that has more print space for Dhobles than these children of a lesser God.
Who will write about them or shoot them..so God created photo bloggers and their progeny.. Marziya Shakir 4 year old Nerjis Asif Shakir 11 month old shall shoot them and keep the spirit of survival and charity alive.
This is the meaning essence core of my street photography, to tell the story of the poor needy neglected through street pictures.. you see them as images you read them as poetry.
And this is dedicated to my Guru Mr KG Maheshwari who taught me the meaning of Life through photography.. a grand father and a great grand father this father of Indian photography.. a doyen and a humanitarian.
