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.

Ghats, they exist almost everywhere, wherever there are civilizations and the human dwellings evolved at the river-banks. Known in different vernacular terms, the term Ghat or the steps to the river (especially holy rivers like Ganga, confluence of Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati at Allahabad, Yamuna, Narmda, Shipra and so on) is used at many places across the country and abroad where significantly large Indian community is living. But the aura that this four-letter word generates has become synonymous with Ganga and naturally directs one’s thoughts to the spiritual mysticism of the Banaras Ghats that has its origin in the eternal flow of Ganga. Any Ganga Ghat in Banaras is the kaleidoscope of life Banaras has been over the ages, assimilating the changes and preserving the very notions it is known for.
