The sound of music.

                As I sit facing my laptop, wondering what to write for the day, a beautiful tune wafts from the idiot box. For once, this ‘box’  proves it can entertain, too!  I am listening to songs from yesteryear Hindi movies. The music, the lyrics, the actors of that era — the golden era, as it is called — ah! golden, indeed! Every night, after dinner, I switch on the TV and turn on  the channel that plays songs that truly entertain. 

        The music of those times was simply melodious. And such beautiful, meaningful lyrics, too, that expressed  emotions ranging from love for one’s beloved to love for the country!  Devotional songs, love ballads, patriotic songs, soul stirring, emotional songs expressing sorrow…I could go on and on! But, if I keep going on, then I will be missing out on  the music that pulls me to it, that promises to charge up  my  humdrum routine, and give me some respite from the distressing complexities of life!

         Music has the power to enliven our lives, brighten up our moods and take us to a different level of ecstasy that no other mode of entertainment ever  can. So, go on, switch on your music systems , or the good old radio ( if you have one!), listen to some lilting melodies and feel your worries evaporate into thin air.

        That’s all for today! The music has left my mind ‘high’ and dry!
