If music wakes you up, makes you heal then music is working – A R Rehman

Let me ask you a question. Why are we all still alive?

Everyday, we hear stories of love and peace inspite of the increase of budgets on weapons. We see, across the world, wars, hate crimes and bombs detonating every day

in Ukraine, Afghanistan and other warring countries.

So what issustaining peace among many other pro-life things that we do?

It is observed, by common people, intellectuals and researchers that through several centuries, it is our engagement with the creative arts that has helped us preserve and sustain peace. For example, in 1985, the Live Aid Concert raised 127 million dollars as relief for famine survivors of Africa. This was the power of a musical event where millions reached out to bring healing.
