A picture shot by my mentor Dr Glenn Losack MD of Manhattan New York.. my words penned to the captured spirit of pedestrian pain..

these are real scenes
of pedestrian pain that will
never be shot by the press
these are common scenes
the indian newspapers
dont need to address
it is salman khan
sharukh khan
amir khan
caught in their
political newness
each one sitting
on a financial fence
dont think
they do free canvassing
for a political party
or for Times media
do you think
we are really dense
35% to40%voter turnout
now wait for the results
in suspense
an American
reincarnated photographer
sees this through the viewfinder
the pain and sorrow
weeping agony of a camera lens
washing the linen
of splattered pain
a stain that on the soul of humanity
will never cleanse
an image as socketless
as this poem
miltonesque morbidity
apologetic apprehensions  
on her blindness

These are the photo's the press needs to be doing more of. Real life, hardships, lonliness, truth of the way it really is, beautiful, heartfelt work...

Be always safe,
