‘Smells like teen spirit’

Music blared in my ears through the earplugs .The pleasant breeze chimes in ,along with it . A beautiful melody. Scintillating. Sheer Bliss.
My foot taps consensually, synchronized with the beats of the song. I’m sitting in a bus that takes me to college .
People around me all in a trance , listening , I presume,to the popular ‘grunge’ songs (which I personally dislike).
Headphones, earplugs, iPods etc all dangling from their necks and hands .The foot-tap in sync with the beats.Reminds me of the  american rock band, Nirvana’s- Smells like teen spirit! The atmosphere smells, feels and resonates the teen spirit.


There is something I like about music.It’s got this eccentric way of transporting us to a different planet.
I scroll aimlessly through the songs in my phone and stop at one of my personal favourites- Bryan Adam’s Cloud Number 9.
It gets me enthralled and I feel lost in the rhythm.
As I turn the volume high, I am unanimously transferred to a different place in my mind.
The wind gushes generously through the windows suppressing the sound through the earplugs,but my mind continues the song for me anyway, a consequence of listening to the song like a zillion times.


Then it’s like a time machine. One moment I am here and then poof! Back to  my mid-teens when music was like my heart and soul.
It’s amazing what music can do to a person. Back then , I was  so hooked  to music that I preferred  spending all of my leisure , listening to various genres of music.Try what amuses me and what doesn’t . Exchange songs with people , succumb myself to a world that was built on music alone, dance inwardly to the rhythm. It drove my worries , dilemmas away ,at least ,momentarily. That’s what I was looking for. I was engulfed by an invisible world that never really did exist.


I was so overwhelmed with the difficult and cranky situations of my  personal life , desperately grappling to reach the surface of reality  but I had seemed to have lost the way .
Moreover,  I had  chosen music to be my rescue from the chaos of life.
Long time since then…
Life can turn so mundane at times that even a faint harbinger that points out to the beacon of light, can get you grooving.
Yet, here I am now ,all smiles and contented. Worries gone .Loving life and actually living it.
So, the message I have learnt is.. you just need to turn the volume high, in the music-stereo of  life and set aside your hindrances and gently drift in tune with the rhythm  and it will definitely bring alive the teen spirit in you ,again!
Keep grooving..cheers! 🙂
