DAILY PROMPT– Voice
Till then I have never thought about voice. For me it was a blessing to express your thoughts and opinion, that’s all. Nothing more or nothing less.
Ours was a girls school. Our class, all sixteen or seventeen years old bunch of girls preparing for school final exam. Suddenly our maths teacher had to go on leave for two months. School management arranged for another teacher for two months on ad hoc basis.
We were waiting for our new teacher. He entered the classroom. OMG! He was soooooo handsome! All girls were stunned, secretly vying for his attention.We welcomed him with too much enthusiasm and waited for him to address the class. He cleared his throat and started ‘ Dear students…’
O God! Why you have to be so cruel to give such a handsome man such a horrible voice to such a handsome man ? Cracking, shriek and pain to the ear. He must be knowing it and waiting for our reaction.We behaved nicely but wanted two months to go as fast as they could. It was in sixties when there were no grooming classes in our city otherwise he might have gone to one for voice modulation and all that.
Then there was a classmate, not so good-looking but the moment she started singing, she looked the most beautiful person. She had a very sweet, soothing and melodious voice.
Then I realized that voice means a lot in our personality. Other qualities do matter but voice also matters to some extent, especially to the person in singing, politics, teaching and other speech related jobs. They need to have good voice to make impression on others.
Well, this is only one aspect of voice.
