Creating Waves of Awareness
My cousin’s daughter is just one and half years old. She is fond of one particular cradle song sung by K S Chithra (renowned female singer from India.) Whenever the child cries for any reason, that song soothes her easily. Surprisingly, neither any other songs nor by her favorite toys will calm her. It is almost like an addiction to that particular song.
They told me that her mother used to listen that particular song throughout her pregnancy. But, I did not take this as relevant since I felt it might be an individual affinity of a child to one song.
Now, accidentally, I have come across one programme on National Geographic Channel (I do not remember its title), which deals with the influence of music on the fetus. They have shown the live video in which the fetus inside the womb starts moving rhythmically on hearing the music played outside. The fetus can identify the favorite song and the same affinity continues even after delivery, they said.
Now I know the reason behind the affinity of my cousin’s daughter for one particular song.
So, it is my request to all pregnant women to always listen to good music throughout your pregnancy.
