A good jazz tune when you return home after a long day of tiring work makes your work stress disappear, those sad songs after a breakup comfort you more than the chocolate ice cream in your hand, and those youthful beats playing at the Friday club makes the weekend more memorable. Whether happy or sad, bored or busy, music is there to comfort at all times, boosts confidence, motivates, and makes difficulties a bit more bearable.
Humans have had a long-standing relationship with music and lyrics since their beginning, creating sounds and understanding the ones present in nature. These sounds have evolved over the times, yet their emotional connect with humans remains unaltered. Music is known to be directly responsible for altering the moods, affecting and uplifting the brain. A good pop song makes the spirit happy, whereas a mellow song would leave the listener in a contemplative mood.
Where music heals the souls and counsels the emotions, doctors do the same for our mind and body. Both of them are diverse in their actions yet strive to reach the same goal. Some individuals have tried to bridge the differences between these diversities and have become known in both the fields. Here is a list of doctors who are known to be good singers:
1. Palash Sen
Best known as the front man of the pop/rock band Euphoria, Palash Sen has many feathers in his cap. Apart from being a good singer, he is also an actor, composer, songwriter and musician. He found his love for music early on when he performed in choirs and theatres in his school plays. He founded his band, Euphoria while completing his MBBS from University College of Medical Sciences in New Delhi. He wrote the compositions for the songs and started performing them with his best friend, who later joined the band. Euphoria’s first acclaimed hit, Dhoom Pichuk Dhoom put them on the music industry’s map, and they, later on, went on to become India’s biggest band.
Besides his work with Euphoria, Palash Sen has also worked on a lot of solo endeavors, singing as a playback singer in various Bollywood as well as regional films. Palash Sen has also worked in movies like Filhaal, Mumbai Cutting and Aisa Yeh Jahaan. He has appeared on television on multiple shows such as NDTV Greenathon, FameX , Channel V Popstars, MTV Rock On, and MTV Unplugged.
2. Pradeep Chandra Kumar
Introduced to music at the age of three, Pradeep has kept a rhythmical balance between his profession and passion. He got his break in the music industry when he auditioned for singing the cover version for “Chehare Hai Ya Chand Khila Hai” in the movie “Beautiful” for which he was later chosen.
Pradeep Chandra Kumar sang eight songs after that for various movies and was brought into the media spotlight when an award controversy occurred, where the award for the best playback singer sung by him was given to the original singer. He considers it as a blessing in disguise as he received a lot of positive support on social media and wants to continue his singing career.
3. Uma Sheshgiri
Her undying passion for classical music gives out a strong message, that no matter what age you are or what profession you choose, you can always follow your dreams. A doctor turned singer, Uma Sheshgiri started learning Hindustani and Carnatic music and even released her popular music album in 2017. She began her journey in music at the age of 59, when she joined a music school called PRISM, which has a unique and rich history. She sharpened her singing skills and learnt Carnatic music.
