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.

Former RBI Governor and renowned economist Raghuram Rajan may not have won this year Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences which went to Prof Richard H Thaler, an economist and a fellow professor from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, but it is worth mentioning here that Prof Thaler had supported the much discussed demonetisation drive by the Narendra Modi government when it was unveiled on November 8 last year, though with some reservation.

Prof Thaler had then tweeted to express his opinion on the move saying "it was a policy he had long supported." He further added that it was the first step toward a cashless economy and a good start on reducing corruption.

It is true Prof Thaler was not aware of the nitty-gritty of the Indian economy and was making a generic statement on effects of withdrawing big denomination currency from an economy. When someone questioned him about his observation on India's demonetisation that simultaneously introduced the Rs 2000 note, his reaction was like 'how could have happened after such a bold move when he said - really? damn!"

Prof Thaler's Twitter account is still unverified for it doesn't carry the routine blue mark but it was tagged by the Nobel Prize committee announcing the Award and it does carry the link to his official profile page on the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business website which proudly features the announcement of Prof Thaler being awarded this year's Nobel Prize for Economic Sciences.
