Re: [racchabanda] గణతంత్ర దినో త్సవ శుభాకాంక్షలతో...


సుప్రభ గారి ఈ పాట, ఇంతకు ముందటి కవిత, రెండూ బాగున్నయ్యి. ఆమె ఎన్నో ఎన్నో 'బాగు'న్నవి రాసారు.


In that context, a little chit chat.

Recently I listened to - John Lennon's "Imagine" in the MIM (Musical Instruments Museum) in Phoenix. The lyric (1971) says this.



Imagine there's no heaven
it's easy if you try
No hell below us
above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today


Imagine there's no countries
it isn't hard to do
nothing to kill or die for
and no religion, too


Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
but I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
and the world will be as one…"


So on, the song goes on. It is one of the best loved songs of Lennon. Surely it is worth listening to. Also, if not able to visit the MIM, - to visit, read and listen at their internet site, will give lot of pleasure.

In a hallway, (I think that is where the tour guide begins the tour) on the wall next to the staircase is inscribed on a panel in two languages- 


संगीत आत्मा की भाषा है

Music is the language of the soul.

Much as I like what is said of music in there, I loved more it being said in one of the Indian languages. There you go, my patriotism pops up and I can't tell which goose bump is exactly for what!

Personally I don't think patriotism / loving any country on earth, is in opposition to universal peace. But I get what Lennon was singing.

Happy Republic day!   

- Lyla
