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 Kashmir separatists are one resolute lot. At least in propaganda and on social media!

Now that is another thing that it reaches to how many - that how many follow them.

Because it reaches to too few of them - certainly not enough to make their lies truth. But if you see their social media feeds, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Periscope, it's like they have brought some revolution sort of thing.

Some days back, I was sifting through the videos of Hafiz Saeed spewing venom against India during his so-called 'Burhan Wani martyrdom-cum-funeral' rally. His team of so-called cyber warriors were feeding them live through Periscope.

And you know how many users those live feeds were attracting - around 100 only. It is similar with all these militants, terrorists and separatists.

Let them live in the make-believe worlds. Let Hafiz Saeed have dozens of Twitter handles. Let SAS Geelani have as many Facebook pages as he wants to have. Let them tweet as much as they please.

Today, Geelani let the world knew that Facebook had deleted his account because he had posted Burhan Wani's photographs. Soon, he came up with his Instagram account.

All these separatists/terrorists are so principled that they sell their 'principles' for material gains like getting a visa or educating their children abroad or giving their families a settled life or establishing a web of terror network in the veil of charity to keep their funding channels lubricated that ultimately funds their royal lifestyles.
