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.

A CITY THAT CALLS ME..

Where death enlivens as life
Where wisdom speaks in God’s words
Where religion shares space with spirituality
Where culture sings odes of its antiquity
Where tradition speaks of the wheels of change
Where life has the best living possible
The city I come from, there I live, and there I go
In search of peace, to converse within
To live sensibly carefree
Away from this maddening daily excursion
To sit with the human conscience
In the abode of the Trinity
Of Lord Shiva, the Ganga and death
Where life is a celebration in moments
Where living is the healing the soul seeks
Where existence is the song worded by you
Where identity is not the question that haunts you
Where days are eternally yours
Where you can sense what going ‘beyond’ means
A city that calls me back to my roots
To help me add to my questions
And with answers that help me with my reasons
Yes, there I am, in the lap of the Holy Mother River
On the footsteps of the Abode of its founding Lord
In the city that still shapes my thoughts..
