Ragamala Painting A Journey from Music to Art
Ragamala Painting A Journey from Music to Art
Description
Introduction

Integrated personality takes special interest in scriptures t link the real knowledge of this phenomenal universe in relation to the real entity within. The objective unfolds its mysteries and the worlds show their inner meaning. The creative force manifesting itself in the universe therefore remains no more a mystery for the awakened spirit. The body, its movement and language, vast arena of mother earth, rising and seeting sun with its bright and subdued colors elevate senses to more subtle apprehensions. The morning breeze, star studded sky, whirling winds, valley and trees laden with flowers and fruits, imprint themselves on the canvas of the mind.

The dynamic activity of the human being attracts the attention of the artists who perfect such movements into the art of dancing. Te basis vibration develops voice through the vocal chords and turns into melodies. The human experimentations in turn create instruments which can provide tunes matching the melodies. The rainbow colour and the changes in the seasons and atmosphere induce a sensitive mind to capture the scenic beauty on the canvas. Likewise, one with melodious label will be encouraged to sing the glorious moments and give vent to the inner yearnings. Others imbued with different aptitudes may delve into other fields-mundane, scientific or technological. Thus the world hums with indefinite kinds of activities. However, those engaged in perfecting fine arts attract attention and shine in the public gaze.

Dr. Ranjit Singh Gill, author of this rare book is a genius with all round interest in finer sensibilities of life. He delves deep into scriptures to extracts essence of philosophic nature and solace to the spiritual quest. He is a poet and provides glimpses of high ideals and verses of mystic import. He has compiled the salient features of Holy Granth with special emphasis on its practicality. He has brought out the universal appeal of the hymns so very necessary for the tensed souls throughout the world.

His interest in music being uppermost, Ranjit has described the Ragas in which Gurbani composition is presented in the Holy Book. He being a Ph.D. in the History of Art is all the more interested in making use of canvas to portray certain unique impressions of verses – specially as enumerated in the ragamala. Apart from these aspects he has given variety of details and date to understand the various forces which are working in our life and have been personified as Gods and Goddesses in the ancient scriptures.

Dr. Gill has provided enough material and has arranged the subject matter in such a way as will be found quite interesting and instructive. The scholars would find them handy and helpful to comprehend the universe at large in its real and phenomenal form.

Let the humanity throughout the world evince interest in this monumental work, and in the light of the exposition of religion, music and painting enjoy an internal equipoise of personality and a happy blending of communication and comradeship with the fellow travelers of life.

Dr. Ranjit Singh Gill deserves kudos for having successfully translated his high ideals of artistic approach into concrete form and pulsating art.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
