Science – reflection of the reality

Science has been both a boon and a curse to mankind in many ways. The modern age has provided us with many wonderful inventions and discoveries of science. The world has changed tremendously due to the contributions made by the science in every walk of life. The comforts have been increased and the domestic life is made easier giving more time for the leisure activities.

It has helped in boosting the agricultural yields and preserving the same over a longer period of time. With the use of various machines, equipment and gadgets, the trade, business world over has been accelerated .

Electricity in itself is a great wonder of science. It is the essence of mechanical functioning. Communication is made quick and easy by various instruments and travelling has become comfortable by the use of the variety of vehicles on land and seas as well as in the air. The large world has become a small place with long-distances having being minimized.

Numerous drugs and vaccines have cured people from the dangerous life taking diseases. Organ transplantations and laser surgeries have increased the life expectancy.

Science has also provided us with many means of entertainment like the radio, TV and video to fight the boring monotony in life. Life has become easier and man is proud of his achievements.

The machines which provided us the comforts and easiness have failed to provide the peace of mind. It has led to unemployment and competitions. Man is become greedy and has lost the spirit of brotherhood.

Now man lives in the constant fear of wars and destruction. In fact, the misapplication of the scientific knowledge has brought man face to face with destruction. Hence, the potentialities of science must not be misused.

DISCOVERIES IN SPACE

“There is no truth superior to Me.

Everything rests upon me as pearls

are strung on a thread”

                                                        -Bhagavad Gita 7.7

      

Space is an extraordinary thing. It includes living things, planets, stars, galaxies, dust clouds and even time. As it is said in the Rig Veda – the Sun has tied Earth and the other planets through an attraction and moves them around itself as if a trainer moves newly trained horses around itself holding their reins.

 Cosmic science of today is based on Vedic Hindu texts written thousands of years ago.  Universe is nearly 13.82 billion years old. The big bang occurred at 4 trillion degrees Celsius, hotter than the Sun’s core!

सुखद  स्मृति

    
स्मृतियाँ हमारे जीवन में सबसे बड़ी भूमिका निभाती हैं जो हमें अपने अतीत में फिर से जीने के लिए आग्रह करती हैं।इसी के साथ मैं अपने बचपन की एक सुखद स्मृति बाँटना चाहती हूँ। जब मैं छोटी थी, तब मैं हर रोज़ अपनी नानी के घर अपने छोटे भाkkkkkई के साथ खेलने जाती थी।तब कोई पढ़ाई का बोझ न था। वहाँ हम दोस्तों के साथ खेलते और खूब मस्ती करते। छुट्टियों के दिन देर से सोते और देर से उठते। फिर एक रात हमने फ़ैसला लिया कि हर छुट्टी की रात, हम कुछ नया और मज़ेदार करेंगे। उसके बाद धीरे-धीरे हम बाहर जाने लगे। कभी-कभी हम बाहर से ‘चोको बार’ की  आइस-क्रीम मँगाते या ठंडी हवा का मज़ा उठाकर बग़ीचे में टहलते। इसे हम “नाइट वॉक” बुलाने लगे।एक रात हमारे दोस्त के मामाजी ने हमें उनकी बड़ी गाड़ी में घुमाने के लिए ले गए।हम सब जाने के लिए बहुत उत्साहित थे। हम देर रात को अपने रात के कपड़ो में नीचे उतरकर जल्दी से गाड़ी में बैठ गए।जैसे ही मामाजी ने गाड़ी चलाना शुरू कर दिया
हमने खिड़की के काँचों को नीचे किया और हम ज़ोर ज़ोर से गाना गाने लगे। उसके बाद हम बहुत मज़ाक़ करने लगे और पागलों की तरह अपने नाक से जान बूझकर हँसने लगे।लौटने के बाद हम सीधा घर गए।मैंने कभी पहले इतना मज़ा नहीं किया जितना मैंने उस रात किया।काश मैं फिर से “नाइट वॉक” के लिए जा सकूँ।

MUSIC:The Magical Therapy

Whether it is the blood-pumping rock, soul-touching blues and country, the catchy rapping, memorable folk and classical music, the dancing that comes only with pop; jazz; hip-hop and electronic music, all these are sure to sooth your soul, touch your heart, and make you come alive.

They say Google knows everything but do we know the origin of music? It probably emerged during the rise of languages-time immemorial. Music gave the slaves in the America and Europe hope as they struggled for survival. When the forces of nature were cruel to the people in the civilization ages they sang to the gods which gave them hope too. Music does follow a rhythmic pattern and the ones who learn how to manipulate an
d control this pattern are the true artists. Not everyone can become a great artist but a great artist can come from anywhere. This has been proven every century when deaf, blind, mute and handicapped people have shown their resilience by mastering instruments and singing and embracing life for not what it is but what it could be.

If music never existed…

Ever thought about what cinema would be without the anticipating and anxious background music?

What would you hum during the pressure of exams? What you would sing with friends and family?

What would you play on your favourite instruments? What would we dance on?

All these questions make it obvious that music is pivotal in our lives and its non-existence would make life indeed very bland and would take away the magic from us. As for me, I find it very hard to end a day without music and the advanced applications of today make it easy to keep up with the latest songs and trends in music.

According to me music does have a genre but it cannot be judged. If it touches your heart and brings out the best in you then it is music. It is not good or bad. With music people can express themselves and their feelings making those even in the most dire straits feel on top of the world.

Music Is Hope – Aashayein

Victor Hugo said , “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent” I would not be lying if I say that music is my best friend. Every song I hear has a different meaning and somehow I can relate to most of the songs I listen to. As soon as I put on my headphones, I am transported to another world all together, a serene world which has only two componRelated imageents, music and me. Being a sportsman, I have faced many problems and failures, but music teaches me how to deal with them and move on.  It also has the ability to unite people, irrespective of their nationality, colour, gender etc. Music can be classified into various genres, like Pop, R&B , Rock, Jazz and so on. Because of the diverse culture in our country, we  listen to different kinds of music like classical music, Qawwalis, Western music, Western –  classical music in India. This  goes on to show that music has so much variety, that it would be impossible to get bored of it..

Nowadays, majority of the songs  in  the Hindi film industry may not be as melodious and meaningful as they were once before.  But there are some which are so melodious that its difficult to stop humming  So I would request you to keep enjoying music and sing –

Kuch paane ki ho aas aas, kuch armaan ho jo khaas khaas, aashayein…

MUSIC IS THERAPY

Music is one of the most important and powerful influences in everyone’s lives.

Broadly categorizing music into 2 Genres – Indian & Western.

Western -There are different genres in music such as Pop,Electro House,Deep house, Retro, Rock, EDM, Jazz, Reggaeetc. which appeal to different people according to their preferences &moods.

I personally prefer EDM(Electronic Dance Music) which is a broad term covering sub-genres of dance music like, House, Electro, Techno & Deep etc.

Some of the most common names in EDM are Avicii, Hardwell, Swedish House Mafia, The Chain-Smokers amongst millions of music producers; also to mention current trending popular artist Alan Walker.

Music availability has also transformed over the years from analog to now digital sources like mp3s & wave files which can be downloaded or streamed across various apps like Saavn, iTunes & the most popular music app – YouTube.

Indian – Indian music is largely popularized by Bollywood. Some of the notable singers are Arijit Singh, Badshah, Amit Trivedi, Sunidhi Chauhan etc.

The genres in Indian music are Classical, Folk music and Modern Bollywood Music. Some of the most famous Bollywood songs are sung by Badshah and Arijit Singh currently.Bollywood is the most famous genre of Indian music.

Music is an essential and integral part of my life and I cannot imagine living without it because it not only helps me but everyone emotionally and gives us the confidence to deal with situations in life.

I hear music depending on my varying moods, which change my state of mind and emotions.

Listening to different genres of music gives us more information about bands and singers which eventually lead to healthy conversations.

To some students music is habitual during their study time as it gives them a break or energy to study, and for some it is like yoga which keeps a hormonal balance in their body.

I love to sit in my balcony staring at the sea with my headphones; listening to soft and calm music.

Music gives us peace, relief and makes us healthy; mentally and spiritually. We usually hear music while playing indoor games.

I love music since childhood, it has been a strong influence in my family and shall continue to be with me forever.…                                                                                                THE END…

Music – A perfect harmony!

Music brings harmony. Music makes me feel calm and composed. I  start dancing gracefully and I  just cannot stop! I feel really light as if I am flying in the air. If I could see music I would describe it as a wave in the sea which sometimes has a tide high or low  or like a soft and silky piece of cloth which I could wrap around myself. Music has such an essence that I can smell its strawberry and aquatic fragrance before music is switched on. Music has a magical power and  positive energy that spreads its vibrations all over and soothes the mind of a restless person. Sometimes the music that we love just settles down in our mind and we keep singing it all day. It is actually capable of getting you out of the remorseful mood you are in and just make you more jolly and energetic. It basically taps into our emotions and memories! Music helps improve your attention skills as well as enhances learning. It can also cure many types of sicknesses.  Music lightens up people’s life.

MUSIC AS A THERAPY

Music therapy says:

Music is a core function in our brain- Music precedes language. Our brains are wired to respond to music, even though it’s not “essential” for our survival.

We have physiologic responses to music- Every time your breathing quickens, your heart-rate increases, or you feel a shiver down your spine, that’s your body responding physiologically to scary music..

Music helps improve our attention skills-Even from an early age; music can grab and hold our attention. This allows us to target our attention and focus towards the goal, both basic skills we need to function and succeed.

Music enhances learning – Do you remember how you learned your ABCs? Through a song! The inherent structure and emotional pull of music makes it an easy tool for teaching concepts, ideas, and information, not only making it easy to learn, but also easy to recall later.

Music taps into our memories- Have you ever been driving, heard a song on the radio, then immediately been reminded of something or someone? Music is known for its ability to stimulate our memory in a very powerful way.

Music is predictable, structured, and organized–and our brain likes it!- Music is organized in a way that we like and enjoy listening to over and over again, our brains really like this predictability and structure.

“Our bodies like rhythm and our brains like melody and harmony.”

-Daniel Levitin.
