“If music be the food of ‘peace’, give me excess of it…” 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 one’s mind. It could be greed, jealousy or vengeance… 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: “shanthi nilava vendum…” Oh lord, let there be peace… let there be absolute peace all over the world.
Yeah, that’s what we need. Peace, absolute peace.
