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.

Communication through Media is primarily a form of mass communication with implicit corporate interests but with social implications. Most of the Media content today, presents us before, this corporate perception of the society with one point agenda to generate profits. In words of Karl Marx, most of the media content today can be projection of centre, the base, to maintain its hegemony over the periphery, the superstructure, or to maintain the capitalistic/ industrial dominance. The pattern of media habit in the country can relate itself to Cultivation and Hegemony and not to the Uses and Gratification and Dependency. Agreed, there are grey area where we can find some patches playing different tunes, some times being treated as outcast, sometimes as outlaws, they fall in line, tomorrow, or the day after, when the treadmill threatens to choke them out. We fight till we find us in a situation where we need to face the fight to keep pressing the ebony buttons to a different tune. We do not fight, rather we feel more and more reasonable in playing the ongoing opera as the grinding teeth becomes more and more canine. We live this illusion that we fight. Therefore we live this illusion that we exist. We seldom trace the fulcrums of this illusion and existence. Most of us fail to communicate with us and we are communicators for the world.
