A Musical Saturday!! :)

Yesterday some of us, from our company's music group called "Enchanting Engineers", met for our monthly jam session and needless to say, we enjoyed every bit of it. We sang, played and recorded some memorable songs, shared musical memories from our past and created new memories to be cherished in future. Sometimes people ask me, what is so exciting about going to the office on weekends and singing/playing random songs thus, wasting your holiday! Well, in corporate world, people hardly take out time for themselves. It really surprises me when I see people talking about work during tea/coffee breaks, lunch, and even after office gets over. The life of such people revolves around their work, work and only work. On the other hand there are people who want to live and explore their passions amidst their professional lives, be it music, dancing, reading. travelling, sports, etc and that's the way it should be! Life shouldn't just be about going to the office, working, coming back, eating, sleeping, going the office next day and so on. When I meet people who have the same understanding and passion towards music as I have, it brings alive my musical skills. I consider myself very lucky to have found some such people at my workplace and whenever we meet for our jam sessions, time really flies. It's not just about singing or playing random songs. It's about keeping our passion alive in this fast-paced life where people are just running without knowing their destination.  It's not about wasting a holiday by going out rather than relaxing at home. It's about making the best out of the time we get and I feel it's a lovely way to spend your holiday. We'll never get time for anything. We'll have to create time for our hobbies and passions before they get lost within us. Slowly and gradually we are building a collection of our recordings thus, capturing some lovely moments together. Saturday couldn't have been better than this!! Sharing one of the recordings from yesterday's session, the song "Slow motion angrez" from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Do watch!! :)

    I so agree about doing something passionate, creating time for hobbies. And, such jam sessions are really stress busters, mood-lifters, not to mention the polishing that your skills get.
