No, seriously. My life could never be the way it is if I didn't have a family like I have. If I start writing about my family and the impact it has over me, that would be another blog. The passion of music didn't grow within, it happened perhaps very early to consider. From my toddlers day I had listened to music my father used to love. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammad Rafi, Mehdi Hassan seemed people I knew from my childhood. There was not a single day I had not woke up by the music my father used to play while started his days with clients. He probably was putting argument and giving suggestions to his clients as an advocate and on the other side Lata and Md. Rafi got a little romantic with adaas and husn [beauty and style]. And very interestingly no one's of my family members had similar choice when it's about singers and genre. This gave me a wide range of songs to listen, a different genre than other. By the age of 10, I got the chance to listen almost all the top singers in Bengali, Hindi and Urdu music arena. I started making my own niche from that time. Songs of Manna dey, Kishore Kumar, Jagjit and Chitra Singh started making their place in my heart. English songs had a different story to tell. Totally the other face to show off. Where bengali songs are about love and being romantic in subtle way english songs are rugged and talk not only about love but also about making it all through! Abba, Air supply, Chris de burgh, Lionel Richie came with their mesmerizing voice and a revolutionary music in it. Later days Bryan Adams, Wet wet wet, Richard Marx, Don Williams became my icon in English music entries. Some of them still are. Friends happen to say I have a very good ear for music. This is partly true for the influence of my past I presume. What a receptive people and musical environment I grew up with, Awesome!
With the hassling day and uncomfortable night, your stress for the project you've just been assigned included, you may think the life su*ks a big time. Well in a sense it does! But some 10 minutes a day accompanying guided meditation as above can change your way of looking at your life. What I realized about meditation - it's NOT a magic. Nothing unusual will happen to you all of a sudden but as we become freak-out everyday with our busy life and become a snob, meditation can soothe our ever-shaky mind. You will find sometime to talk with yourself. We usually have a tendency to let it go the way it wants but here we make the mistake. We have full control over our mind and we need to keep reminding it. So a deep relaxation can turn the table for you on your favor. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
A little heads up
The Blogorama is collection of my daily blog. Whereas category "Things made my life awesome" talks about my past wonderful experiences in an ascending order, "Now in my mind" says the issues I like my opinion on. "Life, in making" is recently started daily log (not so daily!), "Meditation" is something I come back so often, thought that would interest YOU too. Well, that sums it up (almost).
A constant dreamer, believe this is not the end of the world and try to make changes in my own life constantly. Life sometimes went hard and strict-my life's choices would determine whether I have taken them as lessons or punishment.
If you think someone else is the problem and is not letting you do certain things, that implies you perceive yourself a victim. Being victim is letting the person win. If you really want to make a statement: Ignore him.
