Book Description

Many eminent scholars and musicologists have rendered their services to the field of music in the form of books. My efforts on this specialised subject and art form is very humble, perhaps a small drop in the ocean of valuable scholarly books.

My aim in writing this book is to develop a better understanding for learning and appreciating Indian Music. The basic information required for this purpose is comprises in this book.

I would specially like to thank my student Miss Tanushree Sengupta for assisting me.

I am greatful to Dr. Laxmi Narayan Garg the chief editor of music journal Sangeet and a scholar for encouraging me to write this book.
