Indian Aesthetics and Musicology (The Art and Science of Indian Music)
Indian Aesthetics and Musicology (The Art and Science of Indian Music)
Description

From the Jacket:

This compilation of the research articles, monographs and treatises of some very important texts on Indian Aesthetics and Musicology may serve the purpose as a text book on the subject, essentially required for students and all other concerned.

These articles are of great value and significance. Besides breaking new grounds in Musicological research they serve as sources for the topics that have been prescribed for courses in Musicology and Music theory.

These articles relate chiefly to four areas - Aesthetics, texts in Sangeeta-Shastra, concepts in Ancient Indian Music, Hindustani Music and a comparison of the Northern and Southern systems of Indian Music.

The responsibilities and duties of the teachers of Music are also discussed in a subtle manner.

The supplement of the book includes a few glimpses of different phases of the life and some memoirs relating to Professor Premlata Sharma which give an idea of what could be the profile of a student and teacher-cum devoted human being and a personification of Love and Wisdom.

As expressed by Professor Edward Henry: "…citing her important contributions would itself be a useful contribution" because her life in a way symbolized the growth of Musicology or a School of Music, Musicology, Aesthetics, Poetics, Philosophy of life etc. many in one.

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
