I happened to stumble upon Ganavya Doraiswamy's TED talk and found some interesting takeaways as follows:
While only some of us are privileged and can afford to go behind creative pursuits such as arts, and music, all of us can be creative. Creativity is for everyone including the wealthy, who seeks higher needs on Maslow’s hierarchy and the poor, who are struggling to meet the lower level needs on Maslow’s hierarchy. The rich go behind creative pursuits for self-esteem and self-actualization needs whereas the poor use their creativity for keeping themselves sane and for survival.
My personal favorite is the track, Oru Payyan/Nature Boy. Her tonal aesthetics in 500 miles/Anju Kadal reminds me of the beginning portion of the Tamil song, Santhippoma sung by Chinmayi. Her rendition style of Nithakam/Summertime reminds me of Sid Sriram's in Adiye.
Also, do listen to her TED talk.
