â€œIf music be the food of â€˜peaceâ€™, give me excess of itâ€¦â€ be it classical or film songs, the best among them could lift you to great heights. Such songs, like the gentle breeze sweeps away the dry and useless leaves [thoughts] from our minds!
Everyone loves peace but something or the other pollutes oneâ€™s mind. It could be greed, jealousy or vengeanceâ€¦ and at various levels, culminating in some unpleasant events at national and international levels.
The other day, I was watching on TV an interview with the famous singer Nityashree Mahadevan who talking and singing a couple of lines from some of her film songs. Before concluding the session, she was asked to sing a few lines from an immortal song sung by her grandma and, while listening to it, I felt that the whole world should have listened to it! The song I am referring to is: â€œshanthi nilava vendumâ€¦â€ Oh lord, let there be peaceâ€¦ let there be absolute peace all over the world.
Yeah, thatâ€™s what we need. Peace, absolute peace.
