Marziya and The First Day of Ramzan and Charity
Marziya in the beginning captured pain without a camera , but influenced by what I shot on the streets , and this was the path through a slum we took as a short cut to reach her play school.
And I showed this to her now on the lap top she said , I gave her money as she is a poor woman..so the streets was in a way Marziyas school of life, she saw the adult world the stunted deformed soul and understood the meaning of Charity.. feeling charity as a virtue is more important than understanding charity as a mere human emotion.
Most of the beggars in Bandra know Marziya very well and always greet her when they see her , and all this because of her early education with the camera that caught all this as I shot it ...
At the age of two and a half she knew Lord Ganesh Goddess Durga Jesus and she knew her own Shia back ground her faith, she knew her origins and nurtured by her parents paid equal attention to her heritage..
This is the story of a street photographer the youngest in the world...
