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.

COMMON MAN’S SYMBOLISM GETS NEW TOOLS (BEYOND MERE POLITICAL SYMBOLISM)

Continued/extended from

UNCOMMONNESS OF THE COMMON MAN IN THE POLL SEASON

http://severallyalone.blogspot.in/2014/02/uncommonness-of-common-man-in-poll.html 

The first two months of 2014 have been highly productive for the Indian democracy and the trends tell the drought of decades is going to end its inflicting spell.

The ‘Aam Aadmi’, the common man, had never gone beyond the ‘symbolic’ special status of being the fundamental constituent of the independent India. His special status was always limited to the days of elections and the short-lived phase of hallelujah only served the game of the political masters of the country.

So, what are the developments that help us daydream so or push us to think so?


The first two months of 2014 (though the foundation was led in the last month of 2013) have given the common man’s symbolism some vital tools to reflect on the centrality of the common man beyond the mere political symbolism.

These are:
  • Common Man
  • Broom
  • Muffler
  • Coughing Common Man
  • Tea and Tea-wallah
  • Pepper Spray
So..how well these tools are playing out?

Watch out..
