LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE: Essays On Hindustani Film Music
LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE: Essays On Hindustani Film Music
Description
From the Jacket:

Starting with the premise that Hindustani cine-song and cine-music has been the main narrative, rather than a pleasant diversion for the movie-loving public, the author has undertaken a journey into the enchanting world of singers, musicians, lyrists and assessed their contribution as powerful creators of popular culture as interpreters of the subcontinental ethos, people aspirations and desires, and as bold painters on the canvas of time. They capture the very processesof history and struggles within cultures that have shaped our lives in last one century.

About the Author:

Dr. Ashraf Aziz teaches anatomical sciences at the Howard University, Washington. Hindustani film music and popular culture of South Asia are his major interests. He has been writing extensively on the subject of a long time with rare insight and original interpretation.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
