All India Radio (AIR) is known as Ākāshvāṇī since 1956 which translates to Voice from the sky. And it is so apt that this Mother’s day, From Mug To Mike is organizing a special workshop at AIR, Bangalore.
You ask how this is apt. Well, remember the saying “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers”? So true, isn’t it? In Sanskrit Akashvani means “celestial announcement,” or a gift or message from heaven. And a Mother is nothing but a gift from heaven above whose voice has constantly cuddled us, whose touch has comforted us, whose food has nourished us and whose presence has allowed to us remain a child at heart, no matter what our age.
Across the world, and since time immemorial, at the birth of a baby every Mom becomes a singer.
She sang to you. Now it is your turn. Come, surprise her.
Or better still bring her along and record with her!
