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.

Beads..looking for those appreciating eyes

Beads, colourful, they come in all the shapes – 
and they make an assorted catalogue in the tiny shops at the ghat-steps of Ganga at Varanasi – 
looking for those appreciating eyes – 
reminiscent of the vibrant ‘Banaras’ culture nurtured by the eternal Ganga – 
the Beads, playing along with the joyful multicoloured reflections of the illuminating Sun rays falling on the waves of the captivating Ganga - 
Have you lived it?
