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.

It’s going to happen and we are going to have this funneled interest more hooked up ticking (tickling) our funny bone every now and then.

They say the Congress dirty tricks department has been activated. Who they? Obviously the BJP folks! By whom? Don’t be dumb enough to ask this!

They say why they are running away from the probe if there is no wrong on their part, a political counter-reaction used so repeatedly in the Indian politics of the day that even the terms ‘cliché’ would feel ashamed when used for it. By the way, who this they? Naturally, the BJP people!

The wisdom that has been illuminating the Sonia Gandhi-Rahul Gandhi led Congress party and the Manmohan Singh led United Progressive Alliance government, more so after the opportunity to learn lessons of the profound political wisdom given by the ‘decorated’ humiliation in the assembly elections in Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana, has taken another step to target its political rival, in fact the most potent manifestation of its political rival in the prevailing circumstances, Narendra Modi.

It has ordered a commission of enquiry to probe something that we have come to know as ‘snoopgate’, a term being referred to the illegal surveillance of a woman, an architect, by the Gujarat government, as the most powerful person (politically) of the state, obviously Narendra Modi, had some interest in it and so had ordered to do so. Now there are theories and conspiracy theories behind it, many of them juicy for many folks, especially for the political rivals of BJP and the media.

So, much is going to come into the public domain and the frequency is bound to get more and more overlapping.

And like Congress, BJP, too, is going to do all to be the winner in the race.

BJP is going hit back with full force, especially, after the electoral resurgence in the just concluded assembly polls.

The beginning of it is already there. The ‘apt’ target has been identified it seems.

Some senior BJP members of the Parliament have written to the Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia to launch probe into the controversial land deals of Robert Vadra in some districts of Rajasthan, the deals that have reaped huge benefits (unexpected, unprecedented for a normal person or even a businessman) for the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, brother-in-law of Rahul Gandhi and husband of Priyanka Gandhi.

And yes, we have positive news elements to write that a probe ‘may’ be ordered; so expect it to be ordered, especially after this ‘snoopgate’ probe announcement.

All of them, they are going to be the experts of washing their dirty linen in the public. (Obviously, not satirically, what they have kept private must come into the public domain, if there is violation of legal norms – nothing private then.)

And therefore, expect the vivid details to emerge.
