Speaking on the occasion Mrs Khound stressed upon the influence of music in building one's personality and also its role in stress management. Music plays a vital role in success of a person while it is equally important to listen and practice soothing musics relevant to the environment; said the music maestro. Later talking to this correspondent she said Assam has done that enough to preserve its heritage musics like sattriya and others. Simply giving away award annually in annual colourful function cannot be a excuse, we need to play it in parallel to other music in cultural programs. The modern day music's root is the classic music that we should listen, recite, play and practice.
