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.

Broom, broom, O dear broom! 
After Kejriwal, you get into Modi's room!
And it's all so rapidly done, all set to vroom! 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intentions are beyond doubt but what about his ministers and the bureaucratic Janata (public) overall? 

The folks are wielding brooms before cameras, posing for portfolio style snapshots and uploading them on social media platforms while cleaning the 'cleanliness', where finding dirt/garbage/litter will be a time-taking task. 

Ravishankar Prasad, Smriti Irani, Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Dr. Jeetendra Singh (all others following and to follow as well), they all could not find a 'definitive' littered spot, a filthy stretch while posing with their brooms - now, even prime minister Modi would not believe it, that in Delhi, in India, his dear ministers could not find a place with some real garbage that needed some real cleaning. 

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan - a good intent, a good mission, but such acts not only defy the purpose, they also look cacophonous, sounding like a clear sham.  

There are reports saying Modi will walk 4 Kms while launching the Campaign tomorrow, and it will force many of his ministers and bureaucrats to walk. 

And going by Modi's record, it can have substantive act on the ground, in real terms. 

What would these folks do then? 


Spot dirt! Spot Garbage! Where is the litter? ( these photographs..)
