marvellous music

music composers are the best of all creators. i always marvel at their capacity to imagine tunes that make our hearts dance with joy, some make us cry and others take us back to wonderful memories. As if they know all our intimate secrets. Some tunes haunt you forever and no matter how many times you listen to them, you will have the same intense experience.
How can they visualise world within of crores of people? They randomly pick instruments -- violin, flute, sitar, jalatarangini -- to express otherwise unexpressable feelings of heart. i must have heard, 'Tere bina zindagi, at least a thousand times, not once i felt bored. it is the same case with 'abhi na javo chodke' or 'voohalu gusagusa laade' or himagiri sogasuloo or kurisindi vaana.
the world would have been a lot poorer or a meaningless place but for their work.
