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.

Sitting at the ghat steps of the Ganga on a day like this
Looking at the eternal flow while reflecting on life

Random thoughts in ambiguities of absent moments
When the music of silence takes over the presence
And slowly, the soul travels to a different world
Where the thoughts talk to the soul, connect to you

Sitting at the ghat steps of the Ganga, thinking of life
Making note of your days, taking stock of your ways
When, suddenly, you see to think clear, to reflect better
Driven by the songs of the chaos that the ghats write

The pull of mysticism and the Shiva’s call of realization
In fusion with Kashi’s responsibly carefree way of living
Transcends the soul to the healing realms of introspection
Where you get the chance to connect to you, to talk to the life

Talking to the eternal flow of the Mother River
During the journey you take while sitting with the Ganga
