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.

This photograph was taken on a pre-sunrise summer morning at a Varanasi ghat. The aura of Varanasi ghats has something for everyone. This lady, probably a South Indian pilgrim, is recollecting her thoughts to begin a day on the pilgrimage after taking the holy bath in the eternal Ganga trying to personalize the one coherent course away from a myriad of thoughts.
