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.

The day begins, grows up
Something fades-up
Masters rush, beckon the horses
Summons ignored, on detour,
They decide to be selective
The breed inanely coercive
Pull back the halter ropes
Are we to remain slaves?
Horses grab the lash
Diverting the detour
Even more, stage is set
The day grows up
