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 was so magnetic to look at them and it was so good to see them shining, healthy and clean, at the iconic square of Landour,  the twin city of Mussoorie,  the British era cantonment, a 1000 feet or so above Mussoorie.

The Landour dogs are essential part of the Maggi shops lore (the Char Dukan hangout) of the cantonment and like the historic call of Mussoorie,  the tales of the mountains and the tales of how it came to be and the famous tales of it's legacy of haunted stories and the beauty of that, the Landour Dogs, too vie for the call. You may come across local people telling you these Landour Dogs are from the lot of the legendary ghosts of the Mussoorrie Range.
