every moment that passes has a message but we tend to distort the guide of the moment to the tune of our thinking that it becomes irrelevant..we misinterpret individuality then but we seldom realize..but the message remains the same..we need to go beyond..alas! we seldom go..
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.

DEV DEEPAWALI 2013 THROUGH THE LENS (3)
DEV DEEPAWALI 2013
GANGA, GHATS AND VARANASI
Though spreading to some other Ganga cities, Dev Deepawali is unique to Varanasi. It has achieved a grand scale in the last decade to become synonymous with the fabled Ganga ghats of Varanasi.
Millions of diyas (earthen lamps) spread the message that darkness has to be defeated. Legend says diyas are lit to welcome the gods who descend on Earth on this particular day – KartikPoornima, 15th day from Deepawali. The day coincides with Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary (Gurpurab) and Jain lighting festival.
