In today’s materialistic world human being has achieved remarkable progress through science and technology. People have attained success & lead prosperous and wealthy life across the globe.
But, one will not disagree with the fact that along with the advancements, humanisms is evaporating rapidly form this world and inhuman activities are filling the gap.
Terrorism. ISIS activities, attack on schools like in Peshawar, Pakistan and Chechaniya are the extreme example of atrocities.
If hatred, destruction and violence are to be eradicated from this globe; the tender hearts and brains are to be molded towards love, affection, non-violence etc. Implanting humanity and brotherhood among students of adolescence will bring desirable results. Music and art like activities will definitely prove to be a great tools in this regard.
These subjects are must to be the part of curriculum for the holistic growth of the students since Art and music domains are attributed to soft skills of an individual. And these soft skills are embodiment of not only manifestation of emotional skills but also requires dexterity and cerebral competence. It’s apparent that a person creates something though Music and Art. A creator never is a destructor. A piece of music and art fill the hearts with pleasure and peace.
When atrocious activities and depravity are replacing the peace and happiness; the need of goodness, love, kind hearted citizens are paramount. The allurement of music and art will steer the mind and soul of the young generation towards compassion, humanity and global serene.
It’s also evident that creative things like music and art help people releasing tension and distress. The exquisites of these sooth the soul. It calms down the aggression and augments the passiveness qualities. Even doctors too include music and art in treatment of mental disorders..
Music and art know no boundaries. Musicians and artists are admired across the globe. So, to spread the sweet fragrance of art and music everywhere , I strongly advocate the relevance of these as a part of the curriculum.
Music and art also develop the creativity for example Sir CV Raman was not only a great scientist but also a great pianist. Leonardo was not only a great artist but also a great scientist and pioneer of aircraft.
UNESCO now made it compulsory to have these two as important elements of education and NCF – 2005 of India made these two as integral part of curriculum.
