From the Paper:

"Music has been a vital component of almost all the civilizations the world has seen so far. It is being used as an outlet to the emotions of the human beings, be it a battle call of the bugler, or the happiness of a mother in putting her child in to sleep. Each and every human being is surrounded by the music and takes solace in the music at least once in a while if not regularly. Since music is a nonverbal form of communication, it is instantly and effectively understood by the mind of the listener, and provides motivation for the listeners to improve their performance in all aspects of life. Music is also a successful medium, because people from all around the globe respond positively to one or other form of music."
