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.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is extremely angry and has demanded unconditional apology from Amazon, the world’s and India’s biggest online retailer and one of the world’s most prized companies, for disrespecting the Indian flag.

She has said that Amazon must tender unconditional apology and must withdraw all such products that disrespect the Indian flag or else India will not issue visa to any Amazon official and will also rescind the visas issued earlier.

Sushma Swaraj ‏@SushmaSwaraj
Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately.

If this is not done forthwith, we will not grant Indian Visa to any Amazon official. We will also rescind the Visas issued earlier.

Atul Bhobe (@atulbhobe) from Navi Mumbai had tweeted a screenshot from Amazon Canada website showing many doormats available for sale having Indian tricolour as the base design.

Atul Bhobe @atulbhobe
@SushmaSwaraj Madam. Amazon Canada must be censured and warned not to sell India flag doormats. Please take action.

Sushma Swaraj immediately responded to it saying that the Indian High Commission in Canada should immediately take it up with Amazon at the highest level.
