Speaking on the occasion, the Guide of Heartfulness – Shri Kamlesh Patel ‘Daaji’ said, “Music is a divine artform. Classical music brings us closer to the God that dwells within each of us. The therapeutic properties of music have time and again been supported by scientific backing as well. We rarely come across anyone who does not like music, but classical music is an art form that must be promoted owing to the intensely spiritual and unique vibrations associated with it. Each raga and note have a unique value that is said to be therapeutic on our mind and spirit. There are times when music has proven to heal the sick as well. That is the power of music. What’s more, music knows no barriers. I am pleased that the students of LMOIS are going forward in this direction and bringing communities together with music as the common thread that is binding us all.”
Mrs Bhavani Murthy, Principal of CIS/IB stream at LMOIS said, “Those who are musically trained might very well understand the technicalities of music, but the beauty of it doesn’t go amiss when it comes to the rest. Music touches us all. Classical music is especially unique in how it leaves an impact on our mind and soul. We wish to promote it as much as possible for the benefit of our students and keep their enthusiasm levels up.”
“The students happiness is paramount in how they perform in academics and co-curricular activities. Music is one factor that improves the students’ happiness quotient and also improves concentration and creative faculties. Our aim to promote a music festival as this just supports our belief in music being important in the overall development,” said Mrs Sujatha Kumar, Principal of CBSE stream at LMOIS.
