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.

The rain has brought the darker night again,
My thoughts are trying to get through it,
To see, if the drops are coloured black, or,
To see through, if the night itself is darker,
With its sable shadowing the lines visible,
Answers not responding, mind is restless,
And no call from the night’s stillness either,
Strange this night is, the heart wants to fear it,

But this silence forces some more questions,
Adding some more black to the night’s shades,
Washing away the fear with the falling water,
My mind is trying to take me through it, but,
The night has grown darker, deeply coloured,
Its black has spread more, its stillness quieter,
The night’s blanket already wet, it looks, now,
The rain will keep me awaken the whole night..
