Chandigarh, Sunday, September 28, 2014 (Kulbir Singh Kalsi) :-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.
