Famous Punjabi folk singer Satwinder Bitti’s concert at the concluding day of Punjab Agricultural University’s kisan mela on Saturday turned as a mix of entertainment and education.
In between her performances, she took every opportunity to intersperse her singing with meaningful lessons for life.
Just after her first song, she took a pause and began with the first lesson that she brought out from her own experience. “I am into singing for the past several years, a profession that has taken me across the world and made me meet different kind of people but the grave fact that I observed through this experience that very few of us actually live in the present and instead are either lost in our past or future. For the same reason, tension and depression in our so called modern society is on the rise. Why can’t we understand that we come in this world once, so why can’t we live life to the fullest? It can happen, if we start valuing the present”, she echoed.
Adding further, she said, “For the same reason, even in lively fairs and musical concerts, one can come across so many sad faces. On the flip side, if we enjoy every passing moment, life to us will not only seem, but also become beautiful.”
As she wrapped one of her songs that talked about egoism, she underlined that keeping ego and caring for others together cannot lead one to a successful and peaceful life. “One may reach pinnacle of success but must remain grounded. It is peaceful mind, sincerity and hard work that pay in life. Most importantly discovering in ourselves our true talent, can mean a lot to make life zestful,” she smiled.
Finally, before signing off she reminded all the importance of kindness in life and said she never forgets to share these words at any stage. “We must imbibe kindness as it is so powerful that it can be heard even by the deaf and seen by the blind. It means a lot as it can make the world a beautiful and peaceful place to live in,” expressed Bitti who sang several songs like ‘aankhan meech ke,’ ‘bahana karan saun da’, ‘niki niki kani da mee,’ to mention a few.
She was also invited as a judge at inter-college youth festival of PAU held last December where she had also given a short performance.
