Street is the extension and reflection of the society. In street, everybody has a story which is untold to another. The story could be a story of love, pain, suffering, joy, excitement, endorsement, success or a common story of daily stuff. But we the passer by do not know the story of others. I am in search of that story in street. I am Reshed kamal, a designer by profession and a photographer by choice to celebrate the life around me. I am a social story teller, a documentary and street photographer. I dig the street, search the moment, get the story and want to say life as it is.

The Day of Ashura is on the tenth day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Mourning of Muharram. It is commemorated by Shi’a Muslims as a day of mourning for the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad. For Shi’as, commemoration of Ashura is not a festival, but rather a sad event. A popular Shia saying has it that, “a single tear shed for Husayn washes away a hundred sins.” That’s why they mourning and cutting their own body with knife and blades.
