For me street photography has been a revelation; it has inspired me to connect with people on the streets and given me an opportunity to understand myself better.

“It is a branch of realistic fine-art photography that records unposed scenes in public places. The primary subject is people, at rest or in motion, alone or with others, going about the everyday activities of life. The emphasis is not on the subject’s personal identity, as in portraiture. And unlike photojournalism, there is no news here, rather, the commonplace.”

Alex Webb, a master of the form, defines street photography as follows:

“I don’t define street photography as simply photographs taken in the street. I see street photography more as a stance that a photographer has towards the world. For me, street photography comes out of an essential sense of curiosity on the part of the photographer. It involves above all exploration and discovery. A street photographer goes out into the world as much as possible with a blank mind, with as few preconceptions as possible. It is above all a journey of discovery.”

For me street photography has been a revelation; it has inspired me to connect with people on the streets and given me an opportunity to understand myself better. I have the blessing and luxury of connecting with people’s souls and touching their emotional selves. I can feel my subjects and every photograph that I take has become an experience for me. I am less aware of my camera settings; getting lost in the technical details is an obstacle to my creative process. My photographs are about how I live to document the street. Camera features are secondary tools that would only concern me if I were to become consciously aware of the camera settings.

I try to keep my pictures as organic and natural as possible without interrupting the subject. I don’t subscribe to the idea of invading people’s space and flashing a camera on their faces. Observing my subject from a moral distance and and keeping to it has given me a style that amalgamates different layers of meaning into a single photograph in order to tell a bigger story. I think photography is a simple process. All you need to do is click the shutter and give yourself the gift of time. This allows you to explore all other faculties of photography with time. Most people involve themselves early on in so many unnecessary details in photography that a newbie often gives up, thinking it is too difficult to learn. In the end it is the purpose, the underlying thought process that will drive your photography and influence the viewer. Your passion and commitment will take you through different layers in photography, and then one day, you will realize that a creative process is something beyond what the five senses can see and understand.

If you are serious about photography, you need to be serious about learning. There are a lot of online resources available and you can make use of them in your time. You just need to keep on clicking and learn along the way by investing your time and money into becoming a good storyteller. And if you get an opportunity to learn from the Masters, it’s time to walk the walk and follow their path. Photography is an identity that will add more to your image, and when you start to experience that change in valuing yourself, you will get more attention and credibility from being a photographer. When you understand the power of a photograph than you will fall in love with your own photography

The first causality of the SYSTEM is the common man on the streets and street photography has given me this immense opportunity to see what is coming ahead before the system starts to break down.

The question is, can a photograph elevate you to such a higher level of consciousness? This depends on how deep you look at a photograph.

For centuries, people have tried to attain a higher level of consciousness and to break away from the five-sense prison. Some people have realized that if they perform Zikr or fasting in a certain way, they can make a break from the world that they consciously experience. This has been a common practice in different Sufi orders. In the Sufi practice of Qawali music, getting into rhythm stimulates the right brain activity to such a level that it escapes the five-sense reality. It’s a “wajd” experience, and the idea is to connect with the spiritual world. The question is, can a photograph elevate you to such a higher level of consciousness? This depends on how deep you look at a photograph.

When I took this photo, I didn’t know that it would shatter me many times over before I could begin to understand it. The more I look at it, the more emotional I get. In my solitude, I start to cry. I feel like a lost soul. I have nowhere to go, I am devastated by what has happened to the city that I loved. The abandoned tree in the picture had lost spring in the autumn; the innocent boys killed in school have disappeared, as leaves do, for heaven. Why is the man running toward the train, why is the train leaving so early. The empty skies feel as though GOD Himself is annoyed. What should I do, where do I go, I don’t know? I am left alone in an abandoned city, oh wait wait, let me go…. oh no… let me live here, for my sins are so great that I won’t find peace anywhere else.

The heart becomes soft, tears are in my eyes, I am emotionally drained; I have nothing but my soul. Yes, a photograph can be a spiritual experience.

Somewhere deep inside myself, I live the life of a hypocrite. If I were really concerned about the education and well being of these children, my photography equipment could easily generate enough funds to support their studies for the rest of their lives but wait, is this what I am doing? No, no I am more concerned with making artistic photos, photos that hold a “wow” factor, to be called a genius and a master of street photography. People have begun to believe that I can create magic, but deep inside my hypocrite self, I am deluded about how much I am contributing to a change in society. In fact, I am exploiting the situation to my advantage. The poverty, ignorance and misery of these children has given me the opportunity to create art, which can emotionally break you down, make you cry and force you to think. My job is to pitch ideas and paint stories, but if I know I can do more, does my inaction make me less concerned? This is not who I am? And I know that to revolutionize society, I must live out my ideas.

Said Business School:University of Oxford

It all begins with having a dream: a dream to fit in the system, without it, you cannot be enslaved and brainwashed. One may have a luxurious lifestyle depending on how well he/she is mechanically fit to run the system. In reality, I feel sorry for those friends of mine who want to bring CHANGE with their enlightened minds but have become slaves to debt. In a system in which they were born as debt-slaves and will die as debt-slaves, they have been given no choice but to serve the same system. Their being enslaved in a perpetual cycle of debt voids them of any critical thought and keeps them clueless to any modern day challenge. I used to wonder why there wasn’t more alternative thinking in the most elite channels of education. However, with time I realized that, these channels are part of the same SYSTEM and their survival is dependent on that very system, which funds them, to sustain themselves. Their only job has been to produce human-like robotic iterations, clueless, brainwashed, with no minds of their own, to keep the system going.

They chanted ‘change change change,’ but they were driven by the emotions of change only not by rational thinking and common sense. A voice of change within the SYSTEM is only a noise. For things to change the system has to change and for that to change a complete alternative pathway must be in place to signal the change. A loose bolt might offer some resistance or create complexities, but in the end it winds up being forced to fit into the same system. Mere slogans of change, such as “Naya Pakistan,” are doomed to fail eventually, because executing them requires compliance with the same system that has already failed Humanity. I wish and I could only wish that our leaders realize that the change that they are trying to bring within the system will eventually fail them.

The ‘Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars’, it talks about the unseen wars on the human mind and the silent weapons are mental and emotional manipulations based on manufacturing situations to which the mind and emotions respond. The document describes the diversion strategy, which includes:

Media: Keep the adult public attention diverted away from the real social issues, and captivated by matters of no real importance;

Schools: Keep the young public ignorant of real mathematics, real economics, real law, and real history;

Entertainment: Keep the public entertainment below a sixth-grade level.

Work: Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think. ~ David Icke (A Perception Deception)

It is an exciting time in history to be witnessing with our own eyes how the Orwellian state of 1984 has unfolded over the years. We need to understand the realities around ourselves and disconnect from the Matrix to make sense of ourselves and surroundings. The idea is to come out of the isolation and connect the dots to see the whole picture. Otherwise, there is enough juice in the system to keep you enslaved and entertain for the rest of your life

The real world exists around us but the problem is our focus. Our attention is being diverted towards the magic ball. This ball has been packed with images to control our perception of reality. Human beings are biological computers and they can be programmed easily, a secret known by the few who control the SYSTEM. This is how the system works. We live in a fake, disillusioned world, the wool pulled over our eyes through the power of the media, education and politics. This is a prison that has been built for our minds, engineered so that we never escape the clutches of the system and remain enslaved in the five-sense reality. We have become puppets and our lifestyle has been crafted to make sure that we keep on dancing to the tune of the system for the rest of our lives. It is time to get unplugged from the Matrix and to upload the truth, to counter the mainstream narratives in our minds. Only the truth will set us free.

USURY, also known as RIBA, is the new religion that has taken over our lives, a SYSTEM based on deceit and lies; it is a matrix that no one can escape. In the very core of the system lies usury, which has shaped the politics of disparity, inequality, and poverty. It is a curse that has destroyed the very foundation of human society, and we are already witnessing its devastating consequences. Long before the banking industry and the creation of paper money, usury was the tool that enslaved the human population for thousands of years. In these modern times, it has disguised itself in a sophisticated deception involving the creation of credit, a legitimate form of extortion that is protected by the banks and the legal system. In the meantime, all the other pillars of the system, such as democracy, religion, education and media, work together to depict this parasitical capitalist system as a natural course of human progress and development. Yet human civilization has never seen such disparity and economic injustice, where so few control the resources of so many.

To understand the system, you must understand usury to be its basic instrument of exploitation. Without focusing on usury, it is impossible to make sense of what has gone wrong with the world. The reason our scholars have failed to understand the world around us is because they have never recognized the reality of usury. When we go back in history, we see that JESUS (peace be upon him) aggressively drove out the moneychangers (bankers) from the Church. In Islam, Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) declared war against usury and considered it the biggest sin after polytheism. The Bible clearly forbids it as well. There must be a reason for this, and this what give us food for thought. If we claim to be a true believer than it is time to understand the meaning of usury.

We have been led to an economic colonization by unjust imperialist forces, and our ignorance has strengthened the same system that has created the chaos. For example, it would be reasonable to assume that paper money is wrong, because with it the banks have created another form of usury, since the banks are responsible for their own paper money—they create it out of thin air. It’s the very system that is driven by greed and monopolization, usury manifests in today’s world as an evil that has caged humankind and enslaved it to the system. This is modern slavery, to be born in debt and die in debt, making it impossible to own anything, even after a lifetime of toil and hard labour. This is a question of Freedom: humankind deserves the freedom to choose the SYSTEM, rather than to be subjugated to the system by force. Humankind has lost its compassion and mercy and has chosen greed and money. By using false justice, a farce of equality and the deception of the info-wars, this system defies every moral value and every moral virtue, reducing mankind into mechanical clerks who simply bring in profits. This system defies the divine laws of justice, having been bred in its absence, and it is the embodiment of self-destruction. It is only a matter of time, the big collapse of a big lie.

“The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

What truth?

That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.

A SYSTEM, which has crushed our souls and enslaved our minds, there is a manual to follow. But, few among us will always dare to challenge the SYSTEM and step beyond the manual. The time has come for humanity to find a way out of LABYRINTH.

I still remember the game Labyrinth: I used to play it in my childhood. There was a stainless steel ball that you needed to roll to the centre of the ring to win. Small openings were provided to allow movement from the outer rings to the inner rings, but moving into the centre was all about skill. As meaningless as it sounds, I would spend the whole day playing it over and over. My world was contained entirely within the Labyrinth; I would get so absorbed in it that I scarcely noticed my surroundings. It was fun to play a game with no obvious purpose, no end goal, other than to move the ball to the centre as quickly as possible. It took me a long time to figure out that it was not I who was running towards the centre; rather, it was the very centre of Labyrinth that was pulling me. My mind was not my own; it was the Labyrinth that had taken over.

I see the Labyrinth now as a metaphor for how I see the entire world itself: the centre of the Labyrinth represents Usury, while the innermost, inner, middle, outer, and outermost circles represent, paper money, banking, corporations, politics and religion. All these forces keep the SYSTEM obfuscated so that no one can make sense of the whole process. The stainless steel ball represents the unfortunate human who is forced to move back and forth in the hope of a better future. But in the end all his energy is being sucked up by Usury, which is at the very heart of the Labyrinth, and the system continues to keep us in the invisible prison that is being purposely built for us. The greatest tragedy that modern man can endure is to give his thinking up to the system and become a slave that only follows instructions.

This idea is so profound and powerful that it is inevitable that it will eventually find its way into mainstream ideology. It is my fervent hope that people realize that a huge tsunami is coming their way, and that they will incur terrible losses if they continue to live in the Labyrinth. In this book, I will discuss, in random order, ideas about how the system is rigged, including how it has enslaved the human soul and trapped the mind. I have chosen to tell the story through photographs, in order to make it more powerful, intense and thought-provoking. This situation calls for dire actions, and to understand the deception completely, and to make sense of the nature of its inherent fallacies, we need to connect the dots. We must pursue the right knowledge; what we have been taught in Universities only strengthens the same system, which is a dead end. A thinking mind, working alongside a heart, that is in search of the right knowledge is the greatest enemy of the system. Unless we understand the alternative, making sense of the SYSTEM is an impossible task for the modern mind.

education n SYSTEM

I failed one of the assignments in my degree course because I did not provide any references in my work. Although all the materials were original and I was expecting applause from my tutor for being able to put my own ideas on the paper, instead I got a zero marking. My friends were struggling to Google the material and I was trying to explain them, not to look for an escape window rather express their experience in their own words. They had to do what they were expected to do. The problem is, the SYSTEM tells us what to say instead of guiding us into making discoveries of our own and test those discoveries to explore our hidden potential. We are trained to submit and learn not to question and play within the boundaries. I failed it because I did not play the game by rule.

One of the greatest tools the SYSTEM has used to condition our minds is the education system. It is completely built to create left-brain prisoners who are sponges of the official version of lies. It manipulates not only the minds but gives us a version of textbooks that have little to do with our creative being. It defines us to follow the instructions, memories senseless data, submit our consciousness and spew them on a piece of paper to pass the exam otherwise, if I dare to challenge it with my right brain creative thinking, I fail the exam. I am socially unacceptable and sounds as unsuccessful. This is the nature of our indoctrination a complete disregard for individuality, autonomy and most of all creativity. We end up having questions for the SYSTEM, but none to question the SYSTEM itself.

Why do you want to remain a debt slave with no revolutionized idea to give a new thought to the society? Why do you want the SYSTEM to tell you what to think about everything else? The time a student leaves the university, his/her neck is full of debt with no creative discourse and they are most likely to serve the SYSTEM without ever asking a question in their entire life. It will only change if we refuse to be part of the SYSTEM. You have the unique ability to create your own life without going through this brainwashing SYSTEM. I failed my assignment, but I lived with my original thoughts. I refused to submit and stood my ground. The world needs few crazy people with a sane mind, who can think beyond the manual. Give a reason to yourself, open to the infinite possibilities around and break out of the box in which you have been imprisoned. Either we live to make a difference and leave our mark on the ground or live a life as a slave without putting a fight.

What is fate? why things happen the way they are. What is our destiny and how we can get there. The mystery continues ..

chance&choice

While fate was taking a nap, I was busy debating whether destiny is by choice or chance. Little I knew, the freedom I had to choose was only to last when fate is too lazy to look around. I always wondered, how much freedom I have in the things I do. The seesaw between chance and choice provides the thrill to life. Whether destiny is by choice or chance, one has to go through the tunnel either by decision or taking a chance on life as it happens. The problem is our perception of reality is limited and cannot predict what is ahead. With limited choice to make, one has to make sure he has ticked mark all the boxes that could potentially get in the way. The confusion comes when somebody gets what he wants without a formula while many suffer even with a formula.

To avoid the misfortune, one has to be dead. To understand fate, one has to step beyond the five senses and look at things from a different reality. Fate is best understood when a person submit to what he has got and, try his best within his reach to make life better. The choice of free will is what makes us human. There is more to our brain than the lizard brain. Landing in a bookshop could be one fate but making a choice between a good and a bad book is not one fate. It is this free will that decides the course of a journey that will determine one destiny. It would be a mystery how he got there in the first place, maybe that is what he wanted. With our limited perception of reality, we do not have much choice than to take the responsibility of our decision-making. The other choice is to submit what is there for you. Many people lived a successful life without a formula. The secret is not to mix the plan having a formula and no formula at the same time. Either we submit or have our own formula to succeed. Destiny is a collection of choices and decisions that we make before getting there or sometime fate intervene and divert us towards a destiny that is far bigger than one own choice.

The choices we have made as a nation have brought the fate that we find ourselves today. This is not our destiny but the fate that was waiting by the choices we have made collectively of late. The destiny is divine. The destiny is predetermined for us. Though we have messed up our way towards it. Things will change, and they have to change as the divine wisdom is unfolding; only those we can see through their hearts can recall the divine plan. The SYSTEM is collapsing, and the heart-full eyes are looking at things greater than humanity are unfolding. The dirt has to purge from the blessed land and time has come for the change. The hope is not on what we are going through but is on the divine destiny that only few could see. When the time comes only those will be blessed who have made the right choices and their fate will float on the sea of blessed waves towards a destiny that has already been written.

How street photography or any other art can be used effectively to challenge the SYSTEM

4  Comments

IMG_1399

Every one of us is unique, and that is the reason to celebrate the creativity that unfolds when put into action. Life happens on the street, where one can uniquely observe the psychology of people and their behaviour in an environment. The moments we experience have an emotional value for us. Photographers have the unique ability to live and freeze them. This is what makes us special and valued by the community. Street photography is an amazing skill that is natural, un-stage and true to the environment that has the potential to trigger a thought process in a person mind. A camera can be used as a symbol of resistance and can be a very powerful tool to challenge the SYSTEM.  Photographers look at things differently and have the unique ability to connect the missing dots to reveal the whole picture

Being a street photographer, I look at things in a different way. To tell a story, I place the subject with respect to its environment and how the SYSTEM affects it. Making a photograph of a homeless person in front of a Bank does not reveal the whole story unless understood in relation with the SYSTEM. He might be lazy and stupid in his life, but it is not the whole truth. What if I tell him that it is the very bank that has put him and humanity in this misery? How these banks have created ponzi schemes to lured the people into false dreams. It is not his fate but a well-orchestrated fraud by the Bank mafia. How they create money out of thin air and make bad loans that would have never been paid back in the first place. They knew the game, but that is how they could control people and take their properties/assets when they default on their payments. The funny thing is, they charge interest on the money that has never been existed before. That is how the money is channelled to the 1% who rule and control the world while the rest of us just has to struggle to survive. Many millions will be on the streets in the coming days, a fate that is knocking at the door. When I walk the street, I can smell, it is coming, In fact, it is already happening.

There is a great opportunity and a potential challenge for creative artists to connect the missing dots and reveal the whole picture to the people. This is how people would make sense of the SYSTEM and realizes that the institutions that they believed upon are part of the problem, not solution. Their ability in reality is being manipulated, and they cannot think beyond its manual. Their minds have been occupied by what the SYSTEM feeds them. The time has come to recapture the SYSTEM and exposes the propaganda that has been part throughout everyone lives. We have to deconstruct the SYSTEM and give a purpose to our creativity. Using photography as a tool to challenge the SYSTEM is the order of the day. The choice is obvious, and the solution is simple. It’s time to awaken the masses from the deep trance. People are questioning the events unfolding around them. In particular, economically everyone is struggling to survive, little they know it has all been by design. It is the job of creative artists to connect the missing dots and reveal the whole picture at a time when the question has already been asked.

These are exciting times, and the shift is taking place. Nothing as gigantic as what we would see happening in coming years. It does not matter if one blows these facts as conspiracy, but the facts are mathematical truth. They are undeniable and compliment the history. We failed to grapes’ the idea may be because of the lifestyle that we have chosen to live which perceive that the SYSTEM is the only source of information. In fact, it is clueless.

The life as we know would be totally different in the coming years as what lived by the previous generation. There is a forecast of immense hardships for a common man, which would enforce into their lifestyle. It is not about the collapse of paper money or economy but a systematic collapse of every human value that shape us different from animals. This is going to be catastrophic, and the man on the street would be forced to another great depression. The power will shift to the ultimate few. A new era of awakening will begin.

The reality is we are living the times, and it is already here. Though with an open mind and critical thought we can analyze the alternative facts as a way out. Come to a conclusion or hide behind the lizard brain and worry about survival only. Being a street photographer, my job is to smell the streets and observe the changing landscape. Life has become tough for the man on the street. People are merely surviving, and only the few rich are enjoying the riches feed on poor. To understand the reality and become part of the solution we need to deconstruct the SYSTEM otherwise we would be always part of the mainstream lies, speculations and deceits.

It’s about Freedom and the Freedom would only comes when we challenge the SYSTEM. It is time to understand the real cause of our failure. There is a divine destiny which would come when the system collapses!! ……………………………………

Freedom is not by having a free land but only comes when we aggressively stand against the system which has enslaved us. There is a divine destiny awaiting us and a divine plan is in action. It is common sense that the current system, which is incompatible with the divine plan, had to collapse. We lost the window of opportunity several times, and now there is no time to experiment. And by changing the faces in the same system is merely a sign of shallow intellect. In the battle of evil and good, there have always been two systems in action; one is there to enslave and the other will set one free. The choice is obvious but to make sense of the choice one must understand the systems. There is Pakistan, and there is my Pakistan. This is the divine destiny written for us. We only have to choose our sides.

The chaos we see around is man-made, and it’s only because the system is collapsing. There is no one to blame but us and those who are survived by the system is doing every effort to keep the people in an illusion. Their fake promises and allegiance to progressive Pakistan have no fruits whatsoever. The SYSTEM is the primary building block of a society, and we are so brainwashed than none of our decision has positively matured to challenge the system. Because the very DNA of our country has a system which would continue to enslave us, this is where the issue is and unless we make the decision to challenge this, we would continue to suffer.

The destiny is known, but the question has always been how to get there? We heavily messed up with the choice of our direction and rightly getting what we deserve. This is how it was meant to be, and this chaos will continue until there is an obvious distinction between the evil and the good elements. The signs are happening and may be in two or three year’s time; we will see a different Pakistan. We must understand there is a divine destiny in the chaos we are facing and nothing should dither us from our beliefs. When the divine plan is unfolding, you can only choose which side you are and without understanding the system it would be difficult to make sense of your direction. The creation of Pakistan was not just a freedom of land but to implement a SYSTEM of our choice.

The showman and the system. It’s time to dig deep….

0  Comments

He was a showman and a street performer, who would come to town centre every so often. I would go and photograph him on every single opportunity  It has always amazed me, how easily he could put the people in a hypnotic trance. They would gather around him, mesmerised by his magic even though it would be a deception.  He was a man who knew his craft. Each time he would repeat the same tricks and still attract an enormous crowed around himself. He would get donations after his magic show and I would be left wondering why would someone pay for being deceived? May be if the people don’t understand the reality, then they swallow the magic pill to escape from questioning its existence. Being an obedient student is less stressful than having a free mind to question the rationale of the system.

This is exactly how the system works even though we know that everything around us is based on fraud, lies and deceptions but we still commit to it and accept as our way of life. This is how much we have been terribly brainwashed. We think, it’s the norm and the way to move forward. The sad thing is, we are not willing to know, what’s going on around us. We just dance to the pipe piper tunes without showing any capacity for rational thinking. We have been enslaved in our own box of limited realities and devoid of any enthusiasm to counter it with a more powerful idea.

Where we can go from here, depends on what we stand for. It’s our choice which path we may take but being a silent spectator is no option. The power of the system comes when we surrender ourselves to its magic. We are a living consciousness and our purpose must be bigger  than life itself. There is no bigger shame than giving up on those critical thoughts which have questioned the very existence of the system. The choice is clear, either we stand or surrender. For those with no mind of their own, the system will make decisions for them. Truth is difficult but it will set us free. The idea of change is indispensable now and to make sense of it, we must understand the system itself. It demands our time and attention. It’s time to dig deep in to the rabbit hole and make our arguments on sound foundation of knowledge and intellect.

I could see the pain in his voice and the agony on his face; he was desperate to tell me what was on his mind. After counting my stuff, he looked at me and said, why this mockery of Islam? And why they are after Pakistan? And why they kill Pathans? He had so many questions in one go that I kept looking at him for a while, trying to think what to say? He packed my stuff, and I let go of his shop. He was serving the same system, which controls everything but at least he had a free conscious and the courage to speak the truth. It’s incredibly hard to make sense of the system around us, as not only we had to survive in it but have been brain washed to such an extent that we can’t even accept the rationale that proves how corrupt the system is.

The only reason that we have failed to make sense of our surrounding is that we don’t connect the dots and then look at the bigger picture of the events. We look at individual events and make an opinion about them, which always keep us distracted. The system has cleverly brain washed us to accept it as the only powerful entity. And that is the reason we are not so privilege to explain it. The only feed we get is from the system itself, which controls everything and wants us to believe as what it has to say. Islamic eschatology and Divine wisdom suggest that this triangle has a bigger role to play in the coming days and would become one of the reason for the collapse of the system and they know this.

They can drone us, kill us, bomb us or may use misguided people within us to make us hurt, but the reality stands firm that the eventual victory is ours, and they knows this. They will continue their agenda to destroy this triangle till the time comes when the divine powers overtake the proceedings. There is a great destiny to come, we have to sacrifice and may continue to pay the price. Against all odds, we have survived, and now we will keep on standing firm. It’s the season for sacrifice and then only we can reap the fruit. It’s hard to explain the logic or rationale as to why this is happening to us, but the simple answer is, we are the chosen ones.
