I was at my computer when at about 4 am I saw a huge crowd from my window, I took my camera bag and followed them barefeet from Bandra Reclamation To Mount Mary Basilica .

These Catholic walkers pilgrims had walked all the way from Cross Maidan to Bandra Reclamation , they had begun the walk from Cross Maidan at 10 pm the night before.

I saw their spirit , their devotion powered by Jesus Christ and without any noise they walked in silence a few rosaries in their hands, old young men women and kids.

There was a Muslim boy Shabbir from Santa Cruz he too had walked with the Christians from Cross Maidan to Mount Mary.

He was surprised that I was a Muslim too.. I was not attired or bejeweled as I usually am..

I reached the gates of the Mount Mary Basilica it was totally jam packed and the 5.30 am mass had already begun, I climbed a wall and shot pictures and after the mass entered the Basilica shot the interiors and shot the Bishop too who had presided over the mass.

This was quite an experience and I reached home at about 8 am.

In the courtyard of the Basilica Felix Sequeira my friend offered coffee and biscuits to the pilgrims I had a cup too, I missed my dear friend Monsignor Neris Rodriques I was told he is down with Malaria.


I was also told this walk was in its 23 year...


This is my new set at Flickr.com dedicated to my Christian friends on Facebook and Flickr..

watching
the homeless
the hopeless
as the darkness
creeps he made
a promise to his father
a promise he must keep
wipe away the tear
as the soul of humanity weeps
life second hand and cheap
those battered brutalized
building dream castles
on a garbage heap
into the brokenhearted
soul of man he peeps
as the blood from his hands
his legs once again begins to seep
wastelands purple haze acid rain
in a single sweep
