A journey of a thousand li begins with a single step" - and for a blog, one must perforce start with a title. Having flirted with the idea of starting one for long, it surprised me yesterday afternoon that this seemingly minor detail had missed attention. The evening went by musing more the volume of traffic on saddi Dilli's roads on an otherwise uneventful evening but the mind kept going back to questions of a nominal nature even as the choice for dinner was made in favour of Khan Market over Select Citywalk. Yet, the condiments on offer failed to stir any divine ideas. Nor was my favourite resident critic in one of her more indulgent moods!

So I slept over it.

And it came to me early Sun morning - confessedly a rather uncharacteristic action for the hour for sure - that the math was rather simple: there are really only two original numbers, zero and one. If you went from zero to one, and then again more than once, you would have many. Equally, there may not be many other ways to get to many than to start with one. Hence, One is Me.

Of course, that may open one up to charges that could range from mere egotism to ominous megalomania! My defence is simple: the Many refers less to any precocious assumptions of following, not that any would be unwelcome, than to the multiple touchpoints that we call Life - its myriad hues and shades, inspiring ideas and individuals, inimitably varied emotions and expressions; of the atoms and Atlases - that marvelous interdependence for existence and beyond. Let it be my stated, honest intent to open up this multitude of experiences; and to seek to add to them through feedback, reactions, suggestions and comments.

From One to Many, and back some - and then some more :)    [ A journey of a thousand li begins with a single step" - and for a blog, one must perforce start with a title.
