!– Vetti ALERT –!
When I was recovering from a ligament reconstruction surgery last year, I acquired a bad habit, which I have been continuing to this day – listening to music when going to bed. Not only is this bad for the ears (though I listen to classical music 99% of the time), it is also highly addictive. Maybe addictive is not the right word – I can do without it, but it is hard to resist the temptation.
Sometimes, I listen to Tamil dramas – S.Ve. Shekar’s or Crazy Mohan’s. A couple of days ago, I tried something new when listening to S.Ve. Shekar’s Ellaame Thamaash Dhaan. The exercise is to visualize the scene. How you do it is immaterial. You could visualize the scene as if you were a member of the audience in a theater, or as if you were on-stage, but a passive onlooker.
The exercise was interesting, but tough as well. I’m not someone who thinks in terms of images, so it was difficult to keep the flow. Also, I tend to introspect a lot, which again arrests free flow. And finally, the exercise, though stimulating, is counter-intuitive, as you are doing it as you are trying to go to sleep.
Anyway, I am drawn to the fun in it, and I’m looking forward to tonight’s “theater of dreams”.
