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.

An evening when there is no outage (and certainly, one can find such a time daily in the evening), take a boat ride from any of the ghats near the Manikarnika Ghat to the Assi Ghat and you will witness a mesmerizing view of illuminated ghats, equally illuminated surroundings of these ghats and reflection of their luminescence on the quietly floating Ganga water. It’s captivating. It’s breathtaking. Come and enjoy.
