The Indian languages are scientific, mystic, artistic, philosophical, mathematical, musical and thus have has been the way to impart knowledge and wisdom verbally. The major question that is asked about the Indian languages is that why the focus remains on the verbal and or vocal, but not written. This question has faded the great impact of language not just in music the way it needs to be classical, but its impact as philosophical.
The Philosophy holds it as a great principle that the written works are putting of thought into action. Thus many of the philosophers, who wrote books, are not considered philosophers. It is beyond the Seven Wonders of the World because it includes few of the greatest philosophers, what about the Aristotle.
As the modern developments took place, the Indian language and music started to change the classical turned into non-classical and thus the effects of the Ragas have almost lost the great impact, though many people in India are trying to keep this effect alive on the farming-the trees, plants and animals-what to say about humans. The music with high pitch that many people believe makes others dance has a point.
This very point is that it differs from the classical music because it soothes the brain and one feels in complete rest, the relaxation of soul. The other kinds of music stimulate the body and one dance believing that it is the real music. Now, we can take the example of snake. It does not have ears, however it dances with music. Have you ever noticed what kind of music is it?
Well, it is the music with low pitch-the body vibrator, which makes the snake dance because of physical sensation, not just the music. Our problem in modern age is same with language, we read, write, listen and react to it without feeling the essence of the words that we read or write. What is it?
It is the meaning, feeling, thought and concepts that are hidden in each word. If we sing, we react to music, not just to words as we do in reading and or writing. Now, this treasure of philosophical wisdom presents in the Indian and other languages in the world have this prominence of verbal violence as it if it is noise instead of music.
We do understand that noise and music differ, but how can we do this contrast in speech and in the written words. Can we convey our feelings in words? However, we can go closer to the feelings in the music. The similar is true when it comes in the verbal form of learning. We do not react as if a parrot if we have verbal learning. It may seem an irony that the parrot learns verbally.
However, we are humans and can think, feel and imagine about what we speak and or write. In the verbal we do not condition ourselves. Thus, as we do not condition ourselves, so we keep learning for perfection that results in creative thinking, which is one of the Indian Way for Arts.
The language is one of the most creative ways for communication giving us knowledge to think, feel and experience the fruit of wisdom tree of human civilization and nature in general. The wonderful point is that nature communicates through all of its arts. In nature all of the living ones use it and moreover the natural beauty present in it uses it with us nonverbally.
The language of communication of nature is nonverbal and we all can enjoy it, as people have been doing so from ancient times in India and other parts of the world. Thanks!
