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.

If Manmohan Singh’s speeches are analysed on delivery and content parameters:

(Most elements given here are self-explanatory you would find after going through video-clips of Manmohan’s speeches.)


Expressionless: speeches delivered in monotone

Almost no Emotions: even if he tried sometimes, it has backfired like the ‘theek hai’ speech given ‘after a week’ of the Delhi gangrape

Dull: being expressionless and emotionless, what else should one expect then?


  • No voice modulation
  • No body language support
  • Delayed most of the time
  • Sometimes, ill-timed
  • No soul, just plain, written words delivered mechanically
  • Routine; sounds handiwork of bureaucrats
  • Looks detached while speaking

  • No audience research
  • Poor content research
  • Almost zero customization
  • Almost zero localization
Links to some of Manmohan’s speeches:

There are many more. Just do a simple googling.
