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.

ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS AN 'AAM AADMI'!

Once upon a time, there was an 'Aam Aadmi'.

Once upon a time, he sounded like an 'Aam Aadmi'.

Once upon a time, he decided to fight for some cause.

Once upon a time, he decided that the cause would be the 'Aam Aadmi'.

Once upon a time, there came a time, when he started extending his fight through television sets.

Once upon a time, there came a time, when he thought enough was enough.

Once upon a time, there came a day, when saw the next opportunity to further the cause.

Once upon a time, on one fine day, he decided the board a Delhi Metro train to Noida.

Once upon a time, on that day, and the days that followed, he kept himself absorbed in an assignment to raise a moment.

Once upon a time, during those days of intense conceptualizing, some people along with Anna Hazare came together and formed a group to start an anti-corruption struggle.

Once upon a time, there came a time in his life, when he could successfully be the part of that group where all claimed to be 'Aam Aadmis' and they identified an issue that 'resonates with every 'Aam Aadmi' in India - corruption'.

Once upon a time, at that time, they chose to name their movement 'Jan Lokpal' agitation.

Once upon a time, under the banner of that movement, the team of 'Aam Aadmis' could build a strong anti-corruption movement mobilizing people across the country.

Once upon a time, with that movement, the team of 'Aam Aadmis' could force the government of the day to come to the negotiating table.

Once upon a time, there came a day, when that 'Aam Aadmi' could see the next opportunity - the opportunity that required him to take a different approach from some of his teammates.

Once upon a time, there came a day, when that 'Aam Aadmi' saw where the 'next' opportunity could take him and he decided to take political plunge.

Once upon a time, there came a day, when that 'Aam Aadmi' formed the 'Aam Aadmi Party'.

Once upon a time, there came a day, very early in his political career, when he saw his emergence as the most popular leader of that 'Aam Aadmi Party'.

Once upon a time, during initial days of his political initiation, he felt the need to draw his preferences accordingly.

To continue..

*'Aam Aadmi' - Common Man
