Music…a religion…Post 40


Coming to think of the first time that something seemed as music to my ears I don’t remember that. But whenever I hear this word, a person instantly comes to my mind…my dear friend Bhanu. She is a classically trained singer and it was during those school days and then college days and then MBA days that we used to hear different genres of music on our car joyrides, while me having the luxury to sit back and take in every word ( Bhanu used to drive the car  😛 ).

It is to her that I owe the beginning of music appreciation which never ceased…the beginning of Old Hindi Film Songs…the beginning of Pakistani Bands…the beginning of Ghazals…the beginning of Classical Music (I possess a classical AOL Bhajans CD which was nominated for Grammy Awards named “Soul Call”)…and the beginning of interpreting the lyrics  🙂

Music to me means a healer which touches hearts and communicates to the souls. It transcends reality and metamorphosis into something very deep.

There are a lot of genres still to be explored (like rock being one of them), my journey and learning continues…These days I am going ga ga over AOL bhajans…they calm one’s nerves and settle the ever unresting mind.

This was my first encounter with books based on music. It is the about the Guru-Shishya relationship that the author (Namita Devidayal) shares with her Music Guru “Dhondutai”. I loved every page, every line or for that matter every word of it.
