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 sky is lit with countless lamps
Souls, bathed in light, shine bright
On the Ganga ghats and its ramps
The water breathes the eternal light

With multitudes, the Ganga flows
And the panorama weaves a night
Slowly, the evening bloom grows
Getting younger, holding us tight

It’s the day when Gods descend
And we all pray in aesthetic accent
Practising initially on a silent note
To go spirited then on a singing rote

It's always an experience of a lifetime
With glowing diyas and their rhyme
Come and be there in Shiva’s Varanasi
Don't worry
Gods lead us on the Ghats of Kashi

It’s again that annual Dev Diwali night
Infusing in us a transcending delight
As the water and air get heavenly
And as the identities are lit blissfully
