As soon as I entered Abdullah Shah Ghazi mazar(tomb), he caught my eye. Dark figure clad in dark cloth. He was panhandling, moving slowly around the tomb. I approached him slowly. As he saw me he stopped moving. I asked him “can i shoot ur photo?” he replied respectfully, “watever your wish”. I shot a frame and asked his name.. he replied “Khurshid Alam”…

Lyrics Translaton:

On this lonely journey,
I must walk with patience.
There is no one within my view.

When someone excludes you from their thoughts,
How can they keep their promises?

I hope I forget those days,
I made a mistake, but the atonement is done
I hope I forget the old days.

Amidst the ceaseless noise of the world,
I have died to learn what life really is.
I’m drowning, oh I’m drowning,
Save me, save me.

The night is full of stars,
And on my lips are complaints many.
But there is no one to listen.

Dusk has come, the day must end,
Even though my destination is not reached.
The lamp of hope is fading.

I made a mistake, but the atonement is done
I hope I forget the old days.

Amidst the ceaseless noise of the world,
I have died to learn what life really is.
I’m drowning, oh I’m drowning,
Save me, oh save me.
I’m drowning, oh I’m drowning,
Save me, oh save me.

The night is full of stars,
And on my lips are complaints many.
But there is no one to listen.

Dusk has come, the day must end,
Even though my destination is not reached.
The lamp of hope is fading.

I made a mistake, but the atonement is done
I hope I forget the old days.

Amidst the ceaseless noise of the world,
I have died to learn what life really is.
I’m drowning, oh I’m drowning,
Save me, oh save me.
I’m drowning, oh I’m drowning,
Save me, oh save me
