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.

- It ends when you come to know they met an accident November last year while going somewhere by an auto-rickshaw.
- It ends when you come to know the lady was hospitalized in AIIMS. A doctor treating her was not able to find out that the accident had damaged her knee-cap. Another doctor discharged her against her will and that, too, when pus was flowing out from her left had where a steel plate was implanted. That was January 2011.
- It ends when you come to know her left hand and right leg with another steel plate implanted are still not working. She is still bed-ridden.
- It ends when you come to know this elderly couple’s snap was taken while they were in their single room accommodation of an old-age home in Eastern Delhi.
- It ends when you come to know this couple in 70’s has no one to look after.
- It ends when you sit with them for an hour and see a dignified couple crying on worsening condition of their life. During that period, all the consoling words lose their meaning.
- Can we help them out in a way that restores their faith in life?
- Can we restore their self-dependence while not hurting their sense of dignity?

Not any form of religion based terrorism, but the deepening radical fundamentalism may well be the next 'Waterloo' point!
