Speaking at the inaugural function of the music therapy and research department of the St Joseph Hospital here on Saturday, he said in these days when life has become mechanical, the need for substitutes like music therapy, is very essential.

He said music which has no caste, no language or any boundaries could be used as a carrier, to take us away from pain and distress. He stressed the need of research on the physical and mental effects of music on the human body.

Ramdas said an international conference on music therapy is being planned by the Ganapathi Sachiadanada Ashram sometime in the end of this year.

DCP (traffic and crime) P Rajendra Prasad said music therapy was required for the police as they were constantly under pressure. He said the police department would need such therapy to relax the policemen under pressure, making them more efficient and people-friendly.

Music therapist Padma Murthy was felicitated at the inaugural function. The function also had presentations by Dr Anil Sangli, musician Sripad S and Gayathri S.
