Don’t Stop the Music

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain. ~Bob Marley Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent. ~Victor Hugo Where words fail, music speaks. ~Hans Christian Andersen Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of…

Destination Unknown

“Stairway To Heaven” ~Led Zeppelin There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold And she’s buying a stairway to heaven. When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed With a word she can get what she came for. Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven. There’s a…

Musically Inclined

As I already discussed about what Golu has in store, this is one of the small nuggets that I picked at a nice annual golu stall in Bombay. The set has tablas, a harmonium and a sitar. My only grouse with the set is that it is made of PoP (plaster of Paris) and is…

Through It All

~Smile Music by Charles Chaplin, Lyrics by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons Smile, though your heart is aching Smile, even though it’s breaking When there are clouds in the sky you’ll get by If you smile through your fear and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow You’ll see the sun come shining through for you Light…

The Sound Of Music

It’s easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. ~Johann Sebastian Bach

Silent Sundays: Music

Time for another Silent Sunday! Every week, I’ll put up a picture that would ask you, my dear visitor, to give me a perspective instead. Feel free to drop in a line about the picture. Wish you a great new week ahead!

Untuned Melodies

If you enjoy playing musical instruments, then you would know the possessiveness and care required to keep them prim and proper. This is my brother changing the strings on his guitar, and me bothering him with my camera!

The World Is Not Enough

The world is not enough But it is such a perfect place to start, my love And if you’re strong enough Together we can take the world apart, my love The world is not enough The world is not enough No Nowhere near enough, The world is not enough… (Song by the band Garbage)

Mummy’s Boy

About the picture: I got this idol as a wedding gift from my librarian, who brought it for me all the way from Mathura. The idol of Shiva and Parvati with Ganesha on their lap, sits proudly in the temple at my house. I share a special bond with Komal Ma’am, she was the first person to not just recommend books to me, but also get my feedback after I returned it to her in due course. How I miss my fun-filled college days!

Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati had two sons, Lord Ganesha and Lord Karthikeya (Murugan). While both were very loved, the gods were puzzled over who was smarter. They went out to Bhrama, the creator of the Universe to get an answer, but […]
