Yes, yes people I have emerged from my self realised obscurity to bestow knowledge on all headz. Used ta be out and about now strictly lying low dispensing wisdom.
Too much going down to stay quiet, now all of us have to rise up and speak truth to power.

There has to be more to us than dhal roti and Nokia phones...

Inspired in Istanbul

(viewed 1159 times)
Visited Istanbul earlier this year with my Pops. Fav
photo taken with my trusted Casio (they don't jus'
make calculators y'know) inside the Suleiman Mosque.
All this bizznis at the mo about allowing Turkey in the
EU makes me laff as it shows up some politicians -
and I say some as there are those who do support
them being part of the EU, as being narrow minded
xenophobes.Turkey is cool - a place where you can be
Secular and Muslim, where young women with headscarfs
walk around with fags in their mouths. Talking of which,
this is a pic of my Dad in a teahouse in Istanbul having
a sneaky one. Top city and recommend to all.

Rewind 05

(viewed 1630 times)
October is Black History month which celebrates the
achievements of Asian & African Caribbean communities
and their role in the history of this country. As a writer I
have been working with young people from local schools
to write a production - 'REWIND' is the result of this and
it is the second year that it has been put on.

Big shout out to Ali Akram whos one of my lads who
did really well and played Gandhi ( as well as other parts)
and to all the young people who took part. He's only just
started to act and its important that we give ghetto youts
opportunities otherwise in this town they end up in prison
or shot up.

A plaque to commemorate the first Curry house in
London set up in 1810 nearly 200 hundred years ago.
Important to recognise the longevity of our communities.
Our presence is not a new thing and our contributions
rarely acknowledged.

New Labour, Old violence

(viewed 1492 times)
Oh man this is sick. Looks like the New Labour
project cannot handle any kind of dissent esp
when it comes from a 82 year old who's been a
member of the party for more then fifty years
and came here as a refugee fron Nazi Germany.

Worst thing is that this level of violence is
meted out to refugees on a daily basis by private security
companies and we never see it. People are held
in hellholes like Yarls Wood Immigration detention
Centre and brutalised - children separated from parents
and immigration 'prisoners' taking their own lives.We
hold people who have committed no crime in Secure
Units till they are deported back to war torn places they
have come from. We go to places like Iraq to fight for
freedom whilst we deny basic democratic privileges to
people in this country, even the right of dissent. I recieved
a email today from a campaigner in Scotland Robina
Qureshi who told me of the deportation of a 13yr old
Albanian girl Saida (pictured) and her family at 4am
this morning, she wrote:

"I am disgusted by this calculated, unremitting barbarity
known as the UK asylum & immigration policy. I feel
ashamed of this country, that shame knows no depths,
this calculated, unremitting barbarism that has broken
that little girl's heart will haunt this country for generations
to come. I cannot express enough how disgusted and
heartbroken I am for Saida Vucaj and her family,and all
the other families waiting years and years and then
suddenly picked up Nazi style to be deported. "

Nuff said

NO ONE IS ILLEGAL!

Kebabs & Beards

(viewed 1439 times)
My local eats. Loads of fried food and kebabs done
apna style. Not too bad and it ain't killed me yet.
As someone recently wrote kebab shops are the
crucibles of human instability so you might get the
odd dodgy type, but in Blair's Britain this place is
a melting pot of all faiths and creeds just trying
to get their fat fix. Shami, the owner is a good bloke too.

Yea I know I don't look 2 pretty but I stopped shaving
for a bit. I'm quite hairy so it don't take long for me to
get a growth. Why I'm sharing this with you all I don't
know... Currently reading some Murakami, a book
on Sufism and the Porridge scripts (classic)

Return of Rambo

(viewed 934 times)
Wycombe's getting a brand new shopping centre. More low paid jobs for local low life and security chasing young people out. Can't wait... In the mean time me and my son Amar found this old image behind the old Iceland store. Either didn't notice it b4 or there was a wall covering it which got demolished.

Comforting buildings

(viewed 1547 times)
Wherever I go Colliers Wood tube station reminds me of home and stupid adventures when I was a lad. Theres something about the old stations which I find comforting. Don't like the new stations all slick and shiny. These places have serious history behind them.

The 'war' on terror

(viewed 1406 times)
Now lets get this straight I was shocked and
concerned like any UK citizen about the bombings
on July 7th but the most recent laws they're
attempting to pass right now will just make it worse.
Detaining suspects for three months and
introducing a law against glorifying terrorism will do
very little to combat the danger that exists. Peeps
need to face up to the fact that the war has come
home and you can no longer fight 'virtual' wars abroad
without any comeback. What gets me angry the
most is that papers like the Sun, Mail and the
Express are doing more damage and causing
more incitement then any amount of 'mad' mullahs
will ever do but are they being called to account?
The low value that seems to be put on Iraqi lives in
the civil war situation that has now been created is
also sickening. No silences for them, no recognition
just nuthin...

What u perceive

(viewed 1168 times)
Screen grab with my siemens. Had this on my phone
for ages. Comes from the video of 'Aicha' by the multi
-racial crew Outlandish. You get a chance check the
vid out (and the Walou tune as well). Heavy heavy
tracks on a spiritual vibe
