Development of Hindustani Classical Music (19th and 20th Centuries)
Development of Hindustani Classical Music (19th and 20th Centuries)
Description
From the Jacket

Music is one of the greatest attainments of the human being on this earth. Music not only provides people pleasure, perfect happiness and bliss but it blesses with ecstasy that leads to one’s spiritual upliftment. Classical music has found more favour with the Indians particularly with the Hindus who recognize it a divine art to have communism with the Supreme Soul. Music in India associated with the holy Vedas particularly with the Samveda, enjoys great esteem. Even today, it entertains and equips the man with high yogic powers.

In this study, an endeavour has seen made to prove into and analyze the cause responsible for the development of music during 19th and 20th centuries. These two centuries were not at all favourable for the development of fine arts and music as they were chequered with political upheavals. The fall of the Mughal empire, the domination of the British, the liquidation of the big ruling states and emergence of small princely states all had their repercussion on music.

The book is divided into eight chapters covering all the developments that took place during theses two centuries making the book highly useful for the students of music.

About the Author

1. She passed her M.A. securing first position from University of Delhi and was awarded with gold medal. She completed her Ph.D. In 1991 from University of Delhi.

2. With expertise in classical music, she was also well-trained in performing of music. She had also performed successfully in various Hindustani Musical Concerts. Her performances are being broadcasted on both radio as well as television.

3. In November 2002, her album of devotional songs titled ‘Mir Magan Bhai’ was released under the banner of T-series.

4. She was reader in the department of music in Daulat Ram College, University of Delhi.

5. She died on August 6, 2007. CD titled ‘He Ram’ of the songs that were sung by her was released thereafter.

Foreword

Dr. Rama Saraf was in the process of updating the manuscript of this book, entitled Development of Hindustani Classical Music when she in rather indifferent health came to me for the ‘Foreword’. As I had undergone major eye-surgery, I asked her to give me some time. She left with a word to call on me again. Alas, that was not to be; her ailment took a turn for the worst and instead I had to go to her to bid the final farewell! However, with the effort of her husband, Shri Sunil Saraf, this work is being published.

Rama was one of my favourite students. With her gift of voice, she had acquired a certain proficiency in Hindustani classical vocal music. A dedicated scholar, she was always pecking titbits of knowledge. The present work is a garner of those titbits.

It is, no doubt difficult to cover two centuries (19th and 20th) of our music in a single volume. It goes to the credit of Dr. Rama Saraf that she has done just that quite facilely. I hope this work will serve as a useful reference book for research scholars and students alike.

Acknowledgements

My humble genuflection to God, the Almighty, by Whose grace I could bring this onerous task to a satisfactory close. I find myself short of words to express my indebtedness to honourable Professor Dr. Viney Kumar Agrawala (Head & Dean of the Faculty of Music & Fine Arts, University of Delhi) for his benignity in according approval to the topic of this study and the encouragement that I have been receiving from him.

I express my deep sense of gratitude to Dr. Mrs. Sumati Mutatkar for the mast valued information that I got from her.

To my Guru Pt. L.K. Panditji, I am no less grateful for his blessings that count much in life.

I most earnestly acknowledge that it has been the most able and affectionate guidance of my Supervisor Dr. Ajit Singh Paintal that furnished me with the most needed light to pass through the dark labyrinth of this work. My thankfulness for him knows no bounds.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
