Usually my days have a very fresh and energetic start. Full of new hopes and ambitions. But that day, it wasn’t like that. It was a very dull start of my day; I was so dizzy, sleepy. But then only, I heard someone listening to the best of Cat Stevens and Bee Gees. I was so mesmerized by the beats, the soothing and calm voice of the singer. It all took me to the another world.
A world which made me realize that music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot be remain silent. Life without music is a waste, a mistake. It’s the medicine of mind. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain, of strength, freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never satisfied love. Music, releases the pain. It helps to stand up against the tough challenges of the life. It is a discipline, a mistress of order and good manners; it makes the people milder and gentle, more reasonable and more moral.
It also made me realize that life’s not about counting your defeats or how miserable you’ve been throughout the time, but it’s about the thousand reasons life gave us to celebrate, to cherish.
I believe every bad day can be overcome by listening to music; it has to be simple, plain and obviously true. There’s nothing like music to relieve the soul and uplift it.
When Music and words get together that can be a very powerful thing. The power of music is immeasurable. It is the language of soul. It is intended and designed for sentient beings that have hope, purpose and emotions.
