"What is happening today? Why anger, fights, hatred, rape, why? If the music of the golden period, which was in such simple language that everyone could understand it, if that music was still alive today and grew, I am confident that these fights and anger would not happen," the 80-year-old said here Tuesday at the Mohd. Rafi award ceremony.

"It would have infused love and we all would live in harmony, respect others and live our lives peacefully," he added.

Sayani and the late composer Naushad Ali were honoured here at the event held to commemorate late singer Rafi's 88th birth anniversary.

The music of golden era touched hearts, feels Sayani.

"It is important that that kind of music stayed alive. It started changing in the 80s, some weird kind of a music started. I wouldn't say that the music started deteriorating, as youngsters liked it. But like Naushad said, the music of that era touched your hearts, today's music only touches your body," Sayani said.
