Whenever we look around us, we find ourselves that we are surrounded by different kinds of sounds. If we look closely, we will find that each sound has a different story to tell. These are not sounds but, they are voices. Presently. every keyboard stroke is telling me that I am inching towards the end of the post.
In the morning, we wake up to the chirping of the birds. These sounds tell us that we need to get up and start our day. In monsoon, the sound of raindrops tells us that it is re-invigorating nature and Mother Nature blessing each drop of rain. In the evening, when we are greeted by a gentle breeze, it tells us that they are here calm us and to provide relaxation from the monotonous schedule.
The sounds of waves continuously lashing on the seashores tell us that this process is going on since time immemorial and this will continue till the end of time. Whenever we visit religious places, the sounds of the bells and the chants tell us that they are going to remove negativity from our minds and replace them with positivity.
On a Saturday night, while listening to my playlist, the songs remind me that the next day is Sunday-Funday. A day meant for relaxing and to spend quality time with family. The message of sounds also changes depending upon the context. A school bell sounds irritating at 8.30AM but the same sounds melodious at 2.30PM.
The sound that tells us that food is ready… I am sure everybody loves that, isn’t it? Who doesn’t want to eat? Haha!
If you ask me, what’s my favourite sound…Well, its tough to answer as each and every sound has a different message. But…my favourite sound is when my mom tries to wake me up. I don’t get up till my mom starts shouting at the top of her voice. Trust me, its the best sound to me as it allows me to start my day with a smile. * You may try this at your own risk 😛 *
So, what’s your favourite sound? Do let me via comments.
