every moment that passes has a message but we tend to distort the guide of the moment to the tune of our thinking that it becomes irrelevant..we misinterpret individuality then but we seldom realize..but the message remains the same..we need to go beyond..alas! we seldom go..
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.

KHAWAJA ASIF: FROM 'ELIMINATING INDIA' TO 'NO TO NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST'
Though Pakistan is trying
hard to deny India the glory that a successful Surgical Strike by India against
terrorists in Pakistan controlled territory of Jammu & Kashmir has brought,
we can easily gauge the sentiments in Pakistan, by the pre and post strike body
language of its leaders.
After the Uri terror strike,
that killed 19 of our soldiers, most of them sleeping, Pakistan had started
feeling the heat as there was intense demand in India that the country should
take some decisive, concrete against Pakistan this time.
To handle this, and to thwart
any serious response by the Indian establishment, (and buoyed by the past
precedent, when India had hesitated to take any tough measure), the Pakistani
ruling elite started blackmailing and threatening India with their so-called
tactical or nuclear weapons. And it reflects so perfectly in the body language
and changing statements of Khawaja Asif, Pakistan's defence minister.
After the Uri attack but the
before the Surgical Strike, the favourite line of Khawaja Asif happened to be
that it will eliminate India with its tactical (read nuclear) weapons if India
tried to impose war on Pakistan. See the body language and carefree attitude here
(in this video) while he delivers threat (bluster) to India here.
Now see this. This video clip
shows same Khawaja Asif post the Surgical Strike on the intervening night of
September 28-29. See how resigned he looks, as if he has been slammed left,
right and centre. The look on his face clearly shows that the Pakistani ruling
elite had not expected a Surgical Strike from India even in dreams and was in a
state of shock, not knowing how to respond. He stutters while accepting that
there was an aggression by India and if India tries it again, Pakistan will
give befitting reply (and not that 'Pakistan will nuke and eliminate India).
And what about this tweet on
October 3 from Dunya News, a Pakistani news channel.
Dunya News @DunyaNews
India-Pakistan cannot take
risk of a nuclear holocaust, we will keep supporting the right of freedom of
our Kashmiri brothers: @KhawajaMAsif
Now it is indicator of
complete realization (and surrender) in the ruling Pakistani establishment. In just
a week, from September 26 to October 3, Khawaja Asif has travelled from 'we
will nuke and eliminate India' to 'India and Pakistan cannot risk a nuclear
But old habits die hard.
So it will take some time
before Pakistan can recalibrate its strategy and response to a bold, new India
who is asserting herself on the global stage and who is ready to take on
minnows like Pakistan who have gone rogue with nuclear power, both militarily
as well as diplomatically.
Till then, let them say
whatever they want to propagandize. Why should we care.
