Spice of Life| Mood & Melody: Of songs that capture human emotions

There are songs which bring you a glimmer of hope during a dark night of despair. Point in case: ‘Kahan tak yeh mann ko andhere challenge, Udaasi bhare din kahin to dhalenge, Kabhi sukh, kabhi dukh yehi zindagi hai, Yeh patjhad ka mausam ghadi do ghadi hai, Naye phool kal phir dagar mein khilenge, Udaasi bhare din kahin to dhalenge’, from the movie Baton Baton Mein (1979)

While I do use my knowledge and training to help these troubled souls, sometimes it’s a different tool that comes in handy – Hindi songs. Songs sometimes capture the emotions of a patient better than anything else. (Getty Images/iStockphoto)
