Music heals everything. Well, almost everything.

Do you know when a particular song plays in your head repeatedly and refuses to crawl out just like that, that song is your Earworm. And since this morning, one earworm is creeping in all the compartments of my head and keeping me frustrated and entertained both at the same time. Since music works as a healer to me as well, I welcome it with an open heart. :)

I don't remember the time when the inclination towards music was created in me but I do know that whenever I listen to a piece of favorable music, my interest piques and the inclination doubles up. I often do my household chores (and sometimes my writing too) with earphones plugged in and playlist soothingly patting my heart. This basically fills two purposes:

First, it brings me closer to music and thus, to myself.

Second, it helps to keep me isolated and immune to the surroundings. (Not that I am an insensitive person but the addiction for isolation happens to be constantly injected and brewed in my blood all the time.)

Researches say that you perceive the world according to the type of music you prefer. It makes sense. Think about it and this will make some sense to you too. There is one more wonderful fact about the music -

You don't necessarily need to write or read music in order to understand it. It, somehow, comes out of you along with the persistence you prefer to carry.

Hard to believe, isn't it? Well, to silent your doubts gently, I have a few interesting examples such as - The American singer and writer and also one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history, Jimi Hendrix did not know how to read or write music.

This is my current desktop wallpaper :)

Have another one - Insanely popular English rock band i.e. Beatles could not read music either.

It certainly clears one fact that few things in our lives are a gift; that you don't need to put much efforts to open them and then enjoy. They happen to you just like that.

While the same song continues to play in my head, let me finish this post with another interesting musical fact:

The lyrics for Happy Birthday To You was originally written as Good Morning To You. When and how the transformation occurred, will write here once I attain the knowledge. Till then, have a musical time.

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.

But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.

"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Happy Diwali!!!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and full of laughter diwali (I guess I am the first one to wish you all :) ).

It's 12.30 AM and I am awake doing some interesting chit chat with my beloved husband. He is such a great talker and an even better listener (later one goes in my favor of course ;) ). We are exchanging diwali wishes with our parents. I am really happy today as I'd be making a number of really delicious food items (you all are invited too), making two rangolis afterwards and then enjoying the evening with our friends along with firing crackers. I know I know crackers are unfriendly for our environment. Therefore, we all would be doing it in a limit :). My husband is such a great supporter. He loves doing chores with me which makes everything so special and quick of course. I find it sweet. I also enjoy his company pretty much. Yayyy!! We are going to squeeze the maximum joy out of our favorite festival....again.
And I had promised, I am sharing the two d…

How to deal with a nagging neighbour

If you have a nagging fighting-maniac neighbor next door then you can easily relate to my pain and if this neighbor happens to have a dog barking day in and day out, you can feel the loads of irritation coming my way any time and every time.

Neighbors...they are always imagined as a friendly next door people who not only share their space with you but also comes at rescue when you need them. Good neighbors become your another family out of your own. Having been blessed with a good friendly neighborhood is a bliss; something that we always wish for when we move somewhere.

But...our wish comes crashing when we encounter a troublesome recalcitrant people living next door. Before you realize what wrong you have done to them, they will come rushing only to drag you into a fight. The fight majorly consists of verbal accuses and high pitched voice insults. Whether you are innocent or merely a witness to someone else's fight, such neighbors always drag the rest of the word with them, inc…
