Kahan se kahan tak

Nothing like driving in a drizzle, listening to some great music, huh? The countryside does wonders that not even some drugs could achieve. You know, listening to music while driving is truly therapeutic. I’ve blogged about it in blurty once. I wonder when this beautiful thing was created and by whom. Speaking of which, if you guys’ve seen ‘history of the world’ by Mel Brooks, there’s a hilarious explanation to how this thing called ‘music’ came about. There are these 9 to 10 cavemen standing in a row with one of them their band-leader, or conductor…whatever. Now what this guy does is he…and yeah, all of them are holding rocks over their heads and so is this guy. And this guy drops the rock hard on his feet and cries out in pain. The others follow suit and lo and behold – a symphony, cause each has a different voice in which to yelp or howl in pain. Heh. When I write it here, might sound silly, but you’ve to watch the scene, with their facial expressions and the different pitches in which they let out the howls. But you know, comedy aside, sometimes I do get into those curious trances when I wonder how things really started, and who or what started them. Look around you. You will find a zillion things you won’t give a second thought about, but if you consciously pick ‘em up one after the other, and think of them…

Yeh post kahan se shuru hua aur kahan jaa raha hai, yaar..!

I've never thought about music. I'll think about it now :D But yes, sometimes I do wonder how things came about. I never get any answers, just my different views in my head :D

ricer: I'm sure music has always been sweet, 't was just the movie's interpretation I was amused by.

Khushee: Views are the starting point. Go on...
