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.

Saturday 26 April 2014


The night was getting hooked to the blues of its Templar.
The attachment had a purple haze.
Like everyone decided to be left in a confused state.
Like the lines were drawn,
Only to be made lifeless, annihilated for their depth.
As if, the shallowness was deep enough,
To squeeze them all in.
He knew nights did act like that.
He had seen, 
The fog mixing with the haze to serve the cocktail.
He believed in the profundity of the Grey.
But the night demanded, 
The simplicity of Black and White to get clear of the haze.
