"Railing against the past will not heal us. History has happened. It’s over and done with. All we can do is to change its course by encouraging what we love instead of destroying what we don’t. There is beauty yet in this brutal, damaged world of ours. Hidden, fierce, immense. Beauty that is uniquely ours and beauty that we have received with grace from others, enhanced, re-invented and made our own. We have to seek it out, nurture it, love it. Making bombs will only destroy us. It doesn’t matter whether we use them or not. They will destroy us either way."
Arundhati Roy, The End of Imagination from The Guardian, 1 August 1998.
Words cannot describe how much this man’s music means to me. I love this quote from him.
“My approach to music is very deep. I do not compromise with anybody or anything else in the world. I do not care. I want to really go beyond this materialistic world…not for the sake of enjoyment, entertainment, no. A musician must lift up the souls of the listeners, and take them towards Space.” - Nikhil Banerjee
