If most people were asked about a life without music, their responses would be, "No, I can't live without music!' or 'Impossible!' or " No way, music is my life!". Let us see what makes music what it is!

1. Any time, any mind!
They say there is a song for every season! In this grid of life, one undergoes so many emotions and feelings, that had it not been for songs and music, it would have been difficult to live in peace. Whether you are undergoing heartbreak or are full of frenzy, you have a song for every time! Hearing music similar to emotions makes one realise that they aren't alone, and if someone put the grief so beautifully into a lullaby, why not give life a shot again!

2. Hear it, soothe it!
Fought with a friend, or had a bad one with boss, be it anything that disturbs you, music is always waiting to help you out of it. Just head towards that radio set or plug in your iPod, and you will be just fine!

3. A partner when no one near
Alone at the bus stop waiting for the bus or just plain angry with the world, when you are not with company or feeling lonely, music is the perfect partner. A set of earphones and you are in your own beautiful world, swaying away to glory!

4. Good things in life
Liking music makes one appreciate the better things in life like art and culture, creativity and expression. It generates respect for people who are acclaimed in creative fields, makes one think beyond the hustle-bustle of daily life and look at the brighter side of things.

5. Universal language
One's choice of music might cut across different genres, ethnicities or languages, but every music lover shares the intrinsic idea of music. Under the umbrella of music, only hearts converse. There no longer exists discrimination but admiration and acceptance. Whoa! If only we could send music tapes to terrorists and fighting polities!

So, on this World Music day, put on the music and dance it away!
