Stress – A Modern Disease
Stress is a blight on modern day life. It is a constant theme in out day-to-day existence a consequence of over-ambitious, over-burdened fast paced living. Abundance of stress contributes to approximately 85 percent of all medical problems and is the root cause of many diseases in this modern day world. Constant stress damages more than just the health. It destroys one’s judgment and distorts the decision making process. It impairs one’s ability to concentrate and affects efficiency. Constant stress has been shown to shrink the hippocampus a region of the brain that controls memory and concentration.
Stop Living with Stress
Resort to Music Therapy
While it may not be possible to eradicate stress completely life can definitely be replenished to reduce the effect of this overabundance of stress. Music is one such powerful source of replenishment that has the capacity to create a utopia just about anywhere. Music is vested with the innate capacity to decimate the collected layers of tensions and stress form the nucleus of one’s soul, thus becoming an elixir for life. It soothes the nerves and drenches the soul wit the waves of serenity and peace. Through its palliative or curative effects upon mental emotional or behavioral disorders it de-stresses our mind and body holistically thus transporting us to a higher plane of existence.
Rejuvenate with Pandit Ulhas Bapat
Santoor exponent of exquisite artistry, Pandit Ulhas Bapat Creates a vast ocean of calm through his renditions on Santoor. He is one of the few talented hands responsible for the rise of Santoor from a folk to a classical instrument. A disciple of Sarod maestro Pandit Zarin Daroowala Sharma and eminent scholar musicians Pandti K.G. ginde and Pandit Wamanrao sadolikar pandit Ulhas Bapat has introduced several innovations in Santoor. The encyclopedic knowledge of Raagshastra and bandishes that he has gathered from his gurus help him to enrich his repertoire with Gayaki compositions of two distinct and distinguished gharanas. He is perhaps the only musician who tunes Santoor chromatically to all twelve notes in such a way that he does not need to retune his instrument to the different notes of every Raag. This ahs enhanced the aesthetic appeal of his renditions placing him on a more evocative plane.
Feel the stress emanating out of your mind and body as you feel the echo of his Santoor strains buzz your insides. Dwell in the rejuvenating sound of his santoor!
