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.!
