Description
Preface

Numerous books, in different languages, are available nowadays on Indian Music, but none of them meet the common want of a begin-ner or one who is particularly keen about the principles of the present system of Indian Music and wants to have a clear idea of it leaving behind the old legends which are full of controversies.

This little book has only been compiled for the spread of the art of Music among the educated people, who can hardly devote much time for acquiring practical knowledge but are interested in the theory of the art of "Hindus-thani Music". It deals only with the theoretical portion of the present system known as the "Hindusthani Sangeet Padhati". It provides general information regarding the basic princi-ples, construction and gradual developments, which I believe is enough for tyros. If it succeeds in creating in them a desire for the detailed study of Music, which is supposed to be the finest of fine arts, nothing will give me greater pleasure. I am indebted to many friends for kind suggestions, particularly to Rai Sahib P. B.
