Simplicity shot by Nerjis Asif Shakir 2 year old
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
He is a Hindu who takes care of a grotto housing Jesus near my house , he and his wife are street vegetable sellers ..outside the grotto at Bandra Bazar Road , the grotto is a Portuguese heritage 16 th century ,,,
Elections come once in five years , but their lives status is unchanged , every rehabilitation scheme for the poor only made the politician builder nexus richer stronger and more corrupt..this is the reality of our times , the poor are remembered by the political party candidate only during elections per se ..after the elections are over it is back to reality for everyone including the neglected son of the soil , the
As yet the sitting MP or the AAP candidate or the BJP have yet not seen the plight the
filth the neglect in my area.. our democratic process needs to be made citizen friendly not just the poor the slum dwellers or the middle class or even the rich..
After the person wins he will come one last time with exploding crackers , drums known as the winning procession rally ,, than they will disappear for another 5 long years .
Those that elected them wont ever be able to reach them in their ivory towers ,only their chamchas will do your work for a price .
This is the sad effect of the ensuing Dance of Democracy, last two elections I shot this political drama on the streets .. all on Flickr .. this year I have turned my back on this political documentation.
I might take Nerjis who has shot this picture tweaked by me to shoot the streets on Voting Day 2 April Tryst With destiny and let her see the state of affairs the chaos for missing names on the voting list , dead members coming alive to vote and the Great Comedy Show of All Times Our Elections .
The very rich super class will be at Goa Murud Janjira Khim having a ball and will come grumble when the system fails .
We are not happy with any of the candidates in our area , their tall prmises we will be generously using the NOTA button..registering our Vote as a protest against the people we hope to vote out this time ..
