A vehicle without fuel is motionless, a ship without a rudder is directionless, food without salt is tasteless, a heart without beat is lifeless, and a song without melody is useless……

 

 

Music is an integral part of our lives . But mind you, our favourite songs- they just did not happen. They are the products of the hard work of some very talented, very creative, sincere and hardworking geniuses who dedicated their lives to fill our life with music and melodies.
