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.

Each one has different interpretations, depending on which side you are.

Getting apolitically political

The Gandhi Caps

The Aam Aadmi
(The common man, the public of the Republic)

The Populist Anarchy
(Anarchy gets some Che Guevara style makeover in India, sans some of its elements)

Pre-poll seasoning on electoral reasoning

Campaigning for the campaigns

The ‘Chai Wallah’ Vs the Aspiring Common Man (the Prince) Vs the ‘Muffler Wallah’

The pundits on ‘ifs, buts and ayes’ of India, spread across the spectrum

Depending on which side you are, the way you think, it can be a ‘Happy Republic Day’ or an ‘Unhappy Republic Day’ or just a plain ‘Republic Day’, nothing more than a public holiday.
