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.

Indian politicians, superhuman they are, elite and super-elite, a privileged class beyond reach of the commoners, a class in its own that has grown parasitic on us, the commoners.

They exploit the impulsive sentiments of the masses to keep superiority of their class intact by selectively recruiting what the masses should be given and where they should be dealt with empty rhetoric and false promises.

Indian politicians, superhuman they are, they have started acting as if they are born to rule us. They believe and act they are greater humans than us, the superhumans, and must act to ensure that their supremacy continues.

We always see, witness and become subjects of their superhumanness.

Superhumans they are, having no concern for the emotive responses that we, the commoners, feel for and occasionally express because they feel the commoners (or say the sub-humans for them) deserved to be treated like that.

Superhumans they are, as they believe these commoners do not have a sustainable memory and they forget their humiliations easily because they do not have any dignity.

And this feeling, emboldened with our indifference to the humiliation being meted out to us, gives our superhuman politicians a free hand to exploit us at the expense of ‘us’ only.
