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.

A road that I take
An everyday story,
Told and retold
Sometimes a sort of remake,
But filled with the joy of,
Nascent creativity,
Wrapped in the thrill of,
The unseen ‘seen’ and,
The unfamiliar familiar

A road that takes me
The known curves, and,
The uneven friction,
Now so accustomed of
Winding through,
The sleepy by-lanes,
Stereotyped nomads, and,
Intensely debated circled reasons

A road that takes me
The packed multitudes,
Inanely simple, but,
Scientifically methodical

Everyone has to take a road
Routine, yet it goes on
Making characters, that,
Suddenly appear from a corner,
Never expected of
And hold you behold,
In the cogitated state of motion

A road that I take
Night and day
Day after day
Kindled by the unpredicted,
Apertures on a,
Fragmented trajectory,
But with a direction,
On ‘my’ way
