Mystical! Magical! Numinous! Or Simply – “Music!”
Many years ago I heard a song
called “Dooba Dooba” by a band called “Silk Route”. Didn’t know who was the
lead singer then, but his voice made a distinct impression.
As I sit comfortably in my
cushioned chair to share my thoughts I’m listening to Mohit Chauhan on MTV
Unplugged! Amazing musician, his music brings a breeze of fresh air, mountain
air to be more precise. He has a soulful voice. His music lightens up the whole
mini world of mine.
Music has always occupied a
large part of my life. Although I’m terrible at singing and I don’t know to
play any instrument. Listening to music has always given great high. I’m sure
many would agree to its magical, mystical and intoxicating effect. When I’m
with music, I’m never alone.
Music has been my companion,
during my not so long, yet not so short walk back home from office. It’s an amazing feeling, walking on the
crowded street with music in my ears. Deaf to the noise and chaos of the world,
I feel the high as if in trance because I’m tripping. Tripping on opium called
Many a days when heart feels
heavy with sorrow, tears roll down my eyes. But then when I switch on the music,
the ice of grief melts down and soon evaporates into thin air. Joy conquers the
troubled mind and smile emerges on my gloomy face.
No matter what mood you in,
there is music to suit it. It’s time for some more music now..... Music that
would light up the dark path, leading to the paradise of ecstasy.
It was yet another Friday or billions of
earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for
some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain
of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was
the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.
The distance between us questions possibilities, Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached, Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet, Yet hope says they would someday be entwined. UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged, Unassuming how the world would read them, Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail, It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought. Feelings expressed in words for many are view points, Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few. Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart, These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art. Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts, Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest. Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others, Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.
The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.
A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.
We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.
We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
