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.

Mumbai was numb again. This time there were no terrorists, no guns, and no explosives. There was no fear psychosis to leave them speechless and expressionless. Instead, humanity died once again on its roads. An abandoned baby was left to die by parents. It was flashed on television channels. But no one came to claim. It was grotesque again. The mere sight of a newborn is enough to make you to bow to the beauty of creation, the message of the Almighty. I could never understand what makes us so heartless that we go on to commit cruelest of sins, when we kill rights of a life to germinate. I could never understand what on earth can compel us to debase us to this level. The city would be numb, numb, as we have become sort of moronic creatures, driven by apathy and extreme eccentricity of self. Cities would remain numb. Just two days ago, a newborn, just 2-3 hours old, a baby girl was found abandoned in garbage bin in Lucknow. She’s has a name now, Vrinda. Vrinda was lucky with all her ill lucks that she could survive and could find a lap in an orphanage. But there are cities and cities and there is ever increasing number of abandoned babies, mostly girls. Has the malaise grown to a level that it has stopped bothering us! It looks so. I could not find much information related to the Mumbai incident when I tried to get some more information through different wires. No ‘priced’ space for a ‘non-entity’!
