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.

Eureka. Accidently discovered this advertisement in the Delhi edition of a national Hindi language daily. Indian parliamentarians are to be equipped with iPad 2.

Recently, Education Minister of Puducherry made news when he appeared for his class 10th examination. Now he is charged and implicated for using impersonator in the exam. Bravo! Satisfactorily, the Indian Parliament is a potpourri with an eclectic mix of different levels of academic credentials at work (though last three wasted sessions tell us it is an entangled mess of zero productivity at work).

Hope, aspiring politicians will take note of this advertisement and the institute will reap in good business, making in-turn, the institute able to open more branches in India. Politicians of ‘all hues’ – beware, cheer and get ready to take admission in the beginner’s crash course on how to fight an ‘Indian’ election – everything on the platter is on offer! J
