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.

US President Donald Trump sees opportunity in every development to sell his government's decisions it seems. And the opportunity for him this time came after an attack on London Tube, the city's urban transit system which the London Police is treating as terror attack. The fifth terror attack on London this year was carried out by a homemade bomb that left some travellers with facial burns.

Trump, though denounced the terror attack and the attackers, made his intentions clear when he went on defaming the London Police for being inactive and made a pitch for his government's controversial travel ban plan that puts restrictions on migrants and refugees from some Muslim majority nations.

Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!

Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!

Trump's reaction on the latest terror strike on London came in a series of tweets where he termed terrorists as losers and emphasised on the need to cut off and better regulate internet, their main recruitment tool.

Then he went on to make his sales pitch. Making a case for his travel ban plan, that is going to expire in October, Trump said that "the travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific - but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

His government's travel ban plan has always been controversial, right from its first introduction in January. Following ban by various federal courts, the Trump administration was forced to dilute it but even the diluted version was rejected. The travel ban plan that targeted people from six Muslim majority nations for 90 days, i.e., Syria, Libya, Sudan, Iran, Yemen and Somalia and all refugees for 120 days, was finally given a go ahead by the US Supreme Court on June 26.

That means Trump's travel ban on the people of these six Muslim nations is set to expire on September 23 and his refugee ban on October 23. The next Supreme Court hearing, which will deliberate on the legality of the travel ban plan, is set for October 10.

And if Trump's words are any indication, his administration may be planning to pitch for continuation of travel ban and its next version may be even tougher, free of the concerns of being politically correct.

After the London Bridge terror attack on June 3 that had left seven dead and dozens injured, Trump, while slamming, the re-drafted version of his administration’s travel ban order as an attempt to be “politically correct”, had commented that “the US Justice Department should have stayed with the original travel ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to the US Supreme Court and the Justice Department should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down travel ban before the Supreme Court – and seek much tougher version.”

Comparing his government's track record against the ISIS with his predecessor Barack Obama's government, Trump says that "they have made more progress in the last nine months against the ISIS than the Obama Administration had made in eight years" and goes on to add that "the US must be proactive and nasty" in dealing with terrorists.

Trump would certainly by buoyed by the September 12 decision of the US Supreme Court in favour of his government's travel ban plan where the apex court blocked a federal court's decision to allow some 24,000 refugees with a resettlement agency contract who, otherwise, would have been allowed into the United States in October.
