Mewalal Ki Mooche by MARX77 Mewalal Ki Mooche by MARX77
I generally avoid posting too many portraits of the same person, but I'm making an exception for Mewalal, because this guy is just so darn photogenic!
Took this while he was demonstrating how he keeps his mustache in "Tip Top" condition.

This is dedicated to the wonderful ~ZiaulKareem.
"Mooche ho to Mewalal Dina jaise ho, warna na ho" right, Ziaul? ;)

'Mooche' means, Mustache.

Mooche? Moocher? Minnie the Moocher? [link]

Satisfied now with having placed my little joke here, it's time for praise. This is one great shot, dynamic, breathtaking and absolutely awfully well done in b/w! Wow, if this guy wouldn't run his own business, I would recommend to him relocating to Bombay (politically correct Mumbai) and making himself a career there in Bollywood. Can't think of a reason why he should fail. Your color portrait was damn great already, but this one beats it for sheer suspense, since it is open to the viewers own wild imagination, seemingly touching the darker corners of human existence. Of course this was not his intention, but you captured him in a fashion that makes a truly lasting and nearly primeval impression. He looks as if he would have been here since the beginning of time. And would still be at the end of it.

Truly outstanding, Khuram.

I'll try to fav it, but since a couple of days, dA plays all sorts of evil tricks on me. Few things I try will really work.

If there's anyone worthy of praise here, it's Mr. Mewalal Dina.
Funny you'd mention him trying his luck in Bollywood because that's exactly what I told him as well.
Of course he brushed it off, but not before letting out a hearty guffaw!
I'll be sure to let him know of your wonderful comment about his photos if I ever catch him sober again.
From what I hear, the chances of that happening are rare, and I certainly wouldn't dare approach him while he's inebriated.

Thanks for the link to Minnie the Moocher, B. :D
Now is there any way of getting it to stop playing continuously inside my head?
There was a good reason why I had completely forgotten about that song, and now I remember.

Of course I'm sorry that I did it again, namely coming up with a song that has a hook that is difficult to unhook from ones brain. My only remedy: listen to the song once or twice, and you should be cured. If this doesn't work for you, then you're lost. :D And to think that this terrible thing was done so carelessly by myself, then shame on me. :-)

Now about that Mr. Dina, he seems to know about how to get elevated without having to endure any religious instructions in order to touch heaven. :-) Too bad that it's only the sober hell on earth that makes him approachable. :D
