Aesthetics of life
ĎDear violin, please donít stare at
me; I canít play violinsí
Well, if not several times, I have had the particular feeling
thousand times. I meant that violin should symbolize all the musical
instruments. When I see a piano, when I see a guitar, when I see a flute
or any other instrument my mind is haunted by the above feeling - Why?
Because I canít play any of them; but I can admire otherís playing them.
Even though I canít play them I feel that I do have a little bit of
in-born talent for singing; the reason for that is many people who have
listened to me have mentioned so. Hence, I do have little
self-satisfaction together with a little disappointment. I am keen on
learning the art of playing guitars and pianos. But since I am in the
same race where you are also running I find myself as a poor chap as the
eternal constant, time does not allow me to fulfill my desire. But I
know it is not an excuse; I will some how find time to learn some piano
lessons. Well, it is the positive thinking motivation.
Why did I mention all the nonsense above? In my point of view, every
human being must be in touch with an aesthetic aspect of life to be a
complete human being. Arts and humanities have the feature of growing
good-will and soft feelings. In this odd community we need our soft
feelings to arise.
I strongly believe every human being does have at least one in-born
talent related to aesthetics. We must as be associated with literature
or music or paintings or drama or photography or whatever the aesthetic
aspect we like because it can cure your work stress, your tension, your
Even if you believe that you donít have any artistic talent embedded
inside, you must admit that you can admire and appreciate any artistic
work done by others which of course in the sake of humanity. You may be
a lecturer, you may be a medical officer, you may be an engineer, you
may be a lawyer, you may be a businessman, whatever you are; aesthetics
make you a perfect professional. As I believe in this world, every thing
has a rhythm; every action, every movement, every effort has a rhythm.
Aesthetics help you to be in touch with that rhythm. It helps you to
make your rhythm of life more effective. So, what you would do to
improve the rhythm, in our spare?
* You can write (just like me), write about life, love, nature and so
on - poems, songs, phrases, prose, stories whatever that makes you
*You may paint - paint love, affection, care, kindness on a canvas
with a pencil if you donít have colour paints.
*You can play musical instruments, you can sing. Learn to sing the
songs of love, humanity, kindness.
*You can take nice photographs. You see the beauty of the world by
your third eye.
Thus, you can make your self a perfect man or a woman.
Donít be stuck in one place of your life. It may hurt you. We all
work; most of us are smiling on Friday afternoons and worrying on Monday
That routine can be changed and make your self more pro-active if you
know that you can spare your leisure with your aesthetic soul mate,
residing inside you. Well, this is how I feel and this is how I have
asked myself to follow. It has given me many a smile.
Artistic flavour of life will avoid brutality, jealousy, anger and
many other inhuman feelings as it spreads good-will.
Aesthetic man heals the world. He feels the heartbeat of his fellow
beings. Writing, reading, singing, painting, dancing, acting or whatever
make your mind cooler, will make you a better man who values human life.
So, time to wake up your soulmate, the aesthetic friend who sleeps
inside you; if he or she is still sleeping because you need his or her
