Following above, read motivational story of
Zubin Mehta


It is said that quite often, our ancestors’ traits travel to our very bones. Similar is the case with the versatile musician Zubin Mehta, the son of the well-known violinist Mehli Mehta. Zubin Mehta was born in 1936 in Mumbai.

Though he gained admission to pursue a degree in medicine, he gave up the idea and decided to become a musician instead. This action of his exemplifies his belief in the fact that one’s destiny is never written in stone, one can mold it according to one’s own personal desires, aspirations and wishes.
 
Mehta has carved a niche for himself in the arena of music. He has conducted over three thousand orchestras in his lifetime and he is still going strong, showing no signs of stopping at any point.

His talent has been globally recognised and applauded. This is evident from the numerous and varied range of awards and honours that have been bestowed upon him – for instance, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conferred upon him the title of the Music Director for Life award in 1981.
 
In 1963, Mehta conducted his first ever opera at Montreal. Once he began on his winning streak, there was no looking back for this flamboyant and voracious musician – he has since performed across five continents – in nations as diverse as Munich, Chicago, Vienna, India, Florence, Bavaria and so on.

His appetite for experimentation and his passion for excellence in opera musicals has taken him places, quite literally so. His recognition for music does not only stop at recognition through awards and honours, it extends to a much farther boundary – he has been conferred the honorary citizenship of Florence and Tel Aviv.
 
In 2011, the Israeli president gave a moving speech outlining Zubin Mehta’s contribution to the field of not only music but also, his contribution to culture, national harmony and unity in Israel. For instance, he performed in front of soldiers during the Gulf war and he stayed amongst them in Tel Aviv, conducting the orchestra. He supported the nation’s welfarist plans and schemes and made suggestions for a peaceful co-existence, in times of crisis and warfare. He has been recognised for supporting Israel even when its loyal supporters had begun to turn against it.
 
What is thus, the most motivational factor about Mehta’s life is that, he has ensured and is constantly attempting to prove, even today, that music can transcend all the petty and superficial boundaries and borders of nation, religion or creed and bring together humanity as a complete, unified whole.

His music shed light when countries such as Israel or states such as Kashmir were thrown into the darkness of hostility and violence. Music is innately harmonious, non-discriminatory and peaceful. It is like drops of dew on the parched soul of the human race, which awakens it to its sense of correct judgement and justice.
