Music: Photo A Day - Can't Live Without

Day 27 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : Can't Live Without


I'm sure this prompt isn't about the basic necessities of life, i.e. food, water, air, shelter, clothing etc. So, leaving aside those absolutely essential things, here's one thing that I can't live without...



My daily dose of music! (Though not necessarily from my cell phone!)

I need music while I'm cooking. I need it when I'm ironing clothes. I definitely need it during my walks. I prefer to have music playing in the background (rather than some movie or news or serial on the TV) when I'm doing some art/craft work. I also need some music to lift me up when I'm feeling low, or calm my nerves when my mind goes in a state of hyper drive.

In my family, our day begins with music. We still have the old 2-in-one music system (the one with FM and audio cassette player), and every morning, Dad turns it on and tunes into Vividh Bharati on All India Radio. The radio remains on as long as there's good music being aired. The moment they switch to skits or interviews or something, I promptly turn it off.

Back in the 90s, when we used to have those portable walkman's for playing audio cassettes, you could never find me cooking in the kitchen without my earphones plugged in! Then the world became digital, and people started using iPods. I was a bit slow to catch up with technology. So I bought this. Finally, thanks to my sister, I became "smart" too (i.e. "a smart phone user"). Now I don't need to carry around a separate device, for listening to music during my walks or train commutes etc.!

I am music deaf :(

Shilpa Garg said...

That's pretty cool! It was the same story as yours once upon a time, but now I hardly listen to music. The only music that I get to hear is when we are in the car.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Afshan, yeah I noticed... except that you like Hindi music and I like English more. Hence the need for earphones! No one else in my family likes English music.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Bhavya - what kind of music do you like?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Jyothi, seriously! You never know when things get done... when you're listening to music!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Meena, music deaf bole to you can't play any instrument na, or sing? Surely you must listen to music! Nahin???

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Awww Shilpa! How come! :O

Smita said...

I too love music and u know when I was staying alone I used to switch on the Radio 1st thing in the morning. Now I am unable to do that as In Laws like bhajans in the mrng which are just not my thing :(

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Hahahah! Smita, I like bhajans also... though mainly Krishna bhajans. There's one with a very fast rhythm... goes like "Govind bolo hari gopal bolo". I really like that one. Actually, yeah... morning time mein bhajans chalta hai...

JANU said...

Yes to music.

Nandana said...

Awesome. So many music lovers. Loving it. I still prefer my player over phone (drains the battery) or hear it from office PC :P

pixie said...

most afternoons, I'm curled up with a book and the radio playing softly in the background!!
nice pic :)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Janu - Yes, indeed!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Nandana - That's true yaar... it does drain the battery! :(

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@pixie - Oh wow! Books and music... HEAVEN!

Shail Mohan said...

I so agree. Music is an integral part of my life too. Work becomes so much easier when music is playing in the background! :)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

So true, Shail. Even in school, Maths homework became so much easier to do with some music playing in the background!

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...
