Nerjis is well known at the Bandra Hill Road Shiv Sena Shakha , all the Sainiks love this child she shoots them every year on Shivaji Jayanti she shoots Sudesh Dubey Sabs Ganpati Pandal
,,But ever since she joined Marziyas school she has no time for photography , and is busy  with her I Pad, the beggars keep asking me about her and I tell them she will meet them on her birthday when she will give them money for food and Iftar .

She has been shooting Advocate Ashish Shelars Ganpati Pandal for two years . and she is pretty kicked up about her picture and her story in our local paper Bandra Buzz.

Her birthday will be a family affair after Iftar ..she has given me a list of all what she wants .. yes boxing gloves ,

After her birthday come October will be my third granddaughter Zinnia Fatimas 4 Birthday ,,

Nerjis Asif Shakir Shoots Lord Ganesha ,, Age 2 Year Old

Nerjis Asif Shakir shoots almost all the things I shot , first she was scared of shooting the idols being sculpted at my friend Chintans workshop at Bandra SV Road ,,but than I explained to her got rid of her fear and encouraged by the artisans she began shooting them and with a smile on her face.
I had a gift I shared this holistic gift of photography that I got very late in Life with my granddkids ,, I could not teach them many things but the camera was a gift of life .. capturing time and space ,
I also wanted my grandkids to be aware of diverse religions culture and be respectful.. I was lucky very lucky I had parents who made sure that I respected humanity much before I knew the meaning of God .. this was our inheritance that they bequeathed to my brothers sisters and their grandkids .. its the same gift I am passing on to my grandkids ,,,
So I found the camera to be one of the best textbooks to teach my grandchildren the poetry of life ... Nerjis has shot almost all the Hindu feasts , Christian feasts in and around Bandra .
The only sad part is that they will never shoot their own religiosity during Ashura Chehlum as I shoot all this far away from home and Mumbai.
In a way I am happy too as they wont ever be touched by bigots spiritual racists in my own community .
