Beyond the Notes: Unleashing the Cultural and Educational Power of Music

When Ken Burns completed his film about jazz, he said, “I have made a film about jazz that tries to look through jazz to see what it tells us about who we are as a people.” And in his film Country Music, he quotes Merle Haggard saying that country music is “about those things we believe in, but can’t see.…” In these observations, Ken Burns and Merle Haggard capture music’s special impact and role as it touches and enriches all of our lives.

Punjabi Language

The Punjabi language is the mother tongue of Punjab. It has a rich history. Before partition of India in 1947, there were two groups of Punjabi speakers: Punjabis living in western Punjabi (which is now part of Pakistan), and Sikhs living in East Punjab (which is now part of India). The Punjabi language first developed in the 10th century and gained prominence. The Punjabi language was adversely affected by the arrival of the British in 1849, because they emphasized the development of their own language, English, instead of the Punjabi language.

Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo: From Glory To Carnival

When we talk about “military,” what exactly are we thinking? Or rather, what do we imagine for this word? From my perspective as a visitor who grew up in an authoritarian country, before I travelled to Edinburgh, I thought the “military tattoo” was just a synonym for “military parade.” The latter often uses strict formations, precise marching, and almost mechanical uniformity to demonstrate collective power. However, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo (hereafter referred to as REMT) showed me how they are totally different in an incredible way.

Golden Temple, Amritsar, India

Golden temple is a famous religious place in India, which is located in the center of the Amritsar city. It is also known as Harmandir sahib. This building is made purely with gold and is surrounded by a beautiful pool of water. I visit there by road with my family because it is 150 km away from my city.

I have visited this place many times in my life, and enjoy the peaceful environment.
