Wishful Thinking

Posted: January 31, 2008 in Random

If I had the money and the talent, I would go to Hollywood and make movies on these 2 people:

Charlotte Perkins Gilman – a woman I so much identify and empathise with.A woman who had dared to flout the norms and did what she truly believed in. My movie-making will juxtapose her biography with her masterpiece, “The Yellow Wallpaper”.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky after I accidentally heard one of his symphonies the first time, (I am still hunting for the original track), there was no turning back. In Boston, his was among the classics I was hunting for and got one..yoohoooo!!!! I also greedily scooped up Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and one more omnibus – all of them collector’s items, dirt cheap compared to today’s trash.

Now I am listening to Swan Lake and choreographing a ballet in my mind. But I still love the Hindi oldies so much more. Understanding the meaning and context still helps enjoy music more, even when it is true that music has no language.
