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 an indifferent day today
And like the mood of it
It doesn’t know the why of it

And unlike the day was to be
Beginning again to score high
It imitates that indifference

The sense of it feels misplaced
That unknown, scattered voice
Echoes the day’s detachment

This indifference sucks, goes in
The rout, the flirtations of it
Try to make me a part of the day

It’s an indifferent day today
Crooning like a confused beloved
That mimics her mischievousness
