Summary: A short tribute to Zia Fariduddin Dagar on his 70th birthday
There are three things in the world that are hidden from sight.
The thing we call God, is never born, and does not die.
No one has seen it like no one has seen sound. You can only feel it. Like the wind you can only feel.
are the same. When you know one, you know the other.
Hindu, Muslim, or anyone... live by humanity. If I am human, what is my duty?
Be humanitarian, not just worldly wise. Choose your real duty. This is why you were born.
My whole like is music. So also my end will be.
I began enjoying music at 17 - 18. We lived in a world of music. Music on all four sides, that filled my ears. The real pleasure of riyaz
I got at 30, when I understood what it was really all about.
It gradually developed. My father passed away early. I learnt from my brother. We had a great partnership. He taught me the intricate details of music, and I tried to understand and imbibe. I worked hard.
There were many things I could have been. But I wouldn't have got what I wanted. For that I had to work hard. I did. I got everything. Now I stand... in front of you. Let's see what happens... I'm doing what I have to do, teaching my students.
To create an interest in music, to stir a passion for dhrupad. That is my job.
Imagine beautiful things in your heart and mind, not dark things that cloud your music. This is the most important thing.
There is no value to music that does not come from the heart.
