Foreword
Music is an universal language. But in reality it is the least understood one. People conditioned to one system of music rarely respond to another system, let alone appreciate it. Part of this insensitivity, at least, is due to their ignorance of even the elementary characteristics of systems of music other than their own. And books written in a simple language for the expert, are necessary to make people better informed about the different facets of the art and also as to how these have developed in different systems of music. This will ultimately lead to a proper appreciation of not any one system of music alone but the art in its totality.

Preface
Music is an universal language. But in reality it is the least understood one. People conditioned to one system of music rarely respond to another system, let alone appreciate it. Part of this insensitivity, at least, is due to their ignorance of even the elementary characteristics of systems of music other than their own. And books written in a simple language for the expert, are necessary to make poeople better informed about the different facets of the art and also as to how these have developed in different systems of music. This will ultimately lead to a proper appreciation of not any one system of music alone but the art in its the Orient, music is essentially subjective, for, it has never been organized for objective purposes. The whole art has been in existence for thousands of years and in practically the same state as handled down from teacher to pupil, from parent to child, from priest to novice by oral tradition. The genius of the Indian system is its spontaneous expression of love of God. It is the chart of the devotee; and it implies the comradeship with the very personal Gods of the Hindu Pantheon. It is either for the shrine on the sunrise or the sunset or the social religious ceremony. Its psychological content is of a very high order; its subject matter is elevated. Indian music differs very much from its Western counterpart in its sensitiveness to an aesthetic of the Love, season, mood with the mode in which the song is sung.
