NewZNew (Chandigarh) : To mark World Heart Day a joyful musical bash by Cardiologists, Cardio Surgeons and Sr Citizens was held at Max Super Speciality Hospital (MSSH), Mohali today. It was organized to create heart healthy environments for those suffering from heart diseases by ignoring the stress and pain.
The doctors regaled the audience by singing Bollywood 1960, 70s and 80s hit songs with lyrics moving around ‘Dil’.
Dr Virendar Sarwal, Dr Sudheer Saxena, Dr Anurag Sharma, Dr Deepak Puri, Dr Aratatran Nahak, Dr Amit Gupta and Dr Ajay Sinha from MSSH, Mohali took part in the program with much zest and zeal. The audience enjoyed the melodious songs sung by doctors. Especially Dr Anurag Sharma, Associate Director, Cardiology and Dr Deepak Puri, Director, CTVS left the audience spell bound with their singing skill by singing songs like ‘Abhi na Jayoo chod kar ki dil abhi bhara nahin’, ‘Pal pal dil ke pass tum rehti hu’, Chura liya he tumne ju dil ku’ etc.
The elderly from the audience joined in with harmoniums and guitars forcing others to revel in musical environments. Later Sr Citizens also danced to the latest hit tunes along with doctors thus making the program unforgettable for all.
Speaking during occasion Dr Anurag Sharma said that as this year world heart day theme was creating heart-healthy environments so we decided to keep the theme of this day as Music. Moreover the studies have suggested that listening to enjoyable music could significantly benefit cardiovascular health, said Dr Sharma.
Recent studies have found that music could strengthen the heart besides improving the recovery of patients suffering from heart disease. People could boost the health of their hearts simply by listening to their favourite tunes. We have observed that people who listened to enjoyable music as well as exercise regularly have boosted crucial measures of heart function significantly, remarked Dr Sharma.
The brain would play a pivotal role in vascular health, pointed out Dr Deepak Puri. If music could evoke positive emotions to counteract negative stresses of everyday life, it could have a very important influence on vascular health. It should be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle, just as we might incorporate other healthy habits, asserted Dr Puri.
