Music is divine

If music be the food of love, play on. Music is divine. Anything with 7 in it is. I’m referring to the 7 notes. In the same way, light also has 7 colors and hence is heavenly. The Gandharvas are the celestial musicians of heaven. It’s said that they can make clouds rain by playing certain kind of melodies called ragas. Likewise we have heard stories of musicians who have lit up candles by playing their music.

Such is devotion. When the intensity of dedication is sharp fervent music can be lethal. So much, so that, we can shed tears of joy just listening to it. Music has evolved into many branches today. The use of instruments seems to be overtaking lyrical compositions. If you ever heard the song ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zep (Version with Indian instruments) you know what I’m talking about.

Music tends to infinity. There are no limits to the combinations. In Indian films, music is of paramount importance. It’s difficult to find movies without songs in India. In fact even scenes in a movie have background music in order to enhance the effect. Where would we be without music? Have you heard people whistling away their favorite songs when they work?

If you are a music lover, it’s a good pastime for you. Get yourself a nice Dolby 5.1 with Bose speakers and you are all set. I used to be a music fanatic in my hey-days. Now I listen to those songs not so frequently. But I love the radio. Party time is when the music plays high. So buckle up your shoes and groove to the music every time for a celebration.

Keep it playing always …
