Since last evening I was trying to find out the exact timing of the Pitru Paksha rituals , I called up a few people but got no response than I finally called my dear friend Prashant Singh from my camera club PSI Mumbai,,

He told me that it was 23 September and 24 September till 9 am.

So after feeding Marziyas Java finches her Flowerhorns Blackghosts ,,I showered took a rick to Bandra station and a train to Grant Road Station a share a cab to Banganga .

I had about an hour and a half and there wasnt much crowd so I decided to shoot the religious tonsure and barbers after shooting the rituals of Pind Dan on the steps of the Banganga Tank.

I met my good friend Danish Siddiqui from Reuters and another Kashmiri photographer friend ,, there were two photographers from Bangla Desh students actually.. and photographer enthusiast Brij Lakhani with his dad.

Everyone knows me as I have been shooting the Pitru Paksha for almost 10 years now.

I took a bus on my return and a from Charni Road reached Bandra , I shot the Pitru Paksha barefeet..

I walked home via Bandra Slaughter house shooting the Bandra streets .. hijras and more ,,

This documentary of Pitru Paksha is part of my Hindu blogs .. Hope And Hindutva Message of Universal peace a set at Flickr of over 58000 blogs ,,

You can call this anything but Love Jehad I love my cultural inheritance and showcase it as the unique unity in diversity of my country , my motherland.

I set out barefeet to shoot Pitru Paksha 2014 and this early morning greeting is in front of Advocate Ashish Shelar BJP Head Mumbais Bandra Reclamation office , so you can understand how much garbage Bandra Bazar Road generates , bigger and more uglier sight is near the dumping yard of the Bandra Mutton Chicken market ,, an open eye sore .

This is one place that has become a Bandra Garbage Shrine , most of the foreign photographers come to shoot it ..I asked one of them an Italian photographer what was her fascination for this dump , she was so excited , she said this was Art,, the greatest art she called it Garbage Fine Art , her friend an American photographer butted in .. No Manuela this is Garbage Porn.. and both went into the finer points of so called Dengue Free Bandra ,,..at the very same moment a lady threw a pile of prawn left overs .. and this added to the pictorial decisive moment ,,

I told them I knew most of the great Garbage points of Bandra ..they said they already knew it thanks to that beggar poet and his grandchildren that shot Fine art in Bandra ...I kept mum ..and nodded like a Dumb Indian.. Omerta the Code of Silence ,,
