ABSTRACT

The present investigation aims to study to test the effect of Indian music on institutionalized old person and to measure the effect of different ragas, classical music and “om” on psycho- social problems(on bio and psycho- physiological factors) of old aged persons. It was hypothesized that Indian music will manage the Psycho & bio chemical factors of institutionalized old age person and effect of different ragas, classical music and “om” on psycho- social problems will be revealed through the scores obtained by control group on various variables under study. A sample of 71 old age persons was randomly selected from Pali district, Rajasthan, their age ranges were from 65-72 years. Present experimental design is based on ideas and principles of music healing and the framework used by Choi et al. (2008). In present investigation, independent variable is used as musical wrap up (details of Indian music wrap up is given below). Set of dependent variables includes psycho and bio factors measure like- blood pressure, pulse rate, blood glucose and cholesterol. Results reveal significant effect of music on biological functioning were lower systolic blood pressure, lower cortical levels lower heart rate in men and lower stress response. There is evidence that chronic unhappiness, depression and anxiety can lead to higher blood pressure, decreased immune response, cardiovascular disease risk, diabetes, progression of disability and premature mortality.
