The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

WHAT BANARAS STANDS FOR!

Banaras or Kashi is a unique spiritual light where life and death, both are seen in their full fervour. Banaras’s spiritual heritage is built on the Trinity of ‘Shiva, Ganga and Death’. Banaras’ existential legacy is sustained by the joy of living the life fully with all its elements. The spiritual heritage and the existential legacy of the city complement each-other and that, in turn, sustains Banaras.

Banaras is both, सुखदा (Sukhada) and मोक्षदा (Mokshada), a place that gives happiness and the joy of living as well as the salvation in death, as defined in the literary works.
