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.

These photographs of candlelight vigil taken from the websites of different news agencies are strong enough to push us to think the spark is still there. Yes, the spark has always been there and let’s hope it build silently and erupts when the day comes.

And the Chinese government, its ‘dictators’ and the ruling Communist party realise it as the pro-democracy activists and aspirants mark the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Protests and the Tiananmen Massacre.

The vigil night on June 4 yet again reaffirms the hope that in spite of the China’s efforts to suppress the voices of protests demanding political reforms and more space to democracy, they refuse to die. Though in minority when it comes to expressing, the voices are still strong enough to carry the symbolism of the fight that has always been there.

The silence voices and their collective voice on a day like this are symbolically strong enough to tell the world the flame is still burning, and some day, it will find its way, when the tanks and the armed soldiers would not be able to crush the dissent, these photographs of the Tiananmen Hong Kong Vigil from the Victoria Park tell us.
