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.

Who am I? - This is what I could decipher he was asking as I tried to speak to him. I cannot say if he was aware of his whereabouts. Calling every new face that passes through, he was probably trying to tell his story or urging to help him find his home – I cannot say it with certainty as he was not able to speak clearly. Yes, but I can say he needs his identity back, the question in his eyes, says it – shall you take me home?
