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.

Will you come forward?

Street children of Noida. My father says kids can play with anything and enjoy life. What does this picture, taken during a car drive through one of NCR’s industrial areas, tell? They may not have the riches like kids in our families enjoy, but they have the same happiness quotient of a child.

Can’t it be sustained further?


Life’s ironical ways to bring some elements of parity to every life!

Yes, it’s a long road ahead. We need to work without fail beyond rhetoric, docu-dramas, books, write-ups, movies, hyper-talks and other forms of narratives. Some international agencies put the number of street children in India at 18 million, largest in the world!

Will you come forward to strengthen the chain?
