Shrikrishna Narayan Ratanjankar Sujan: A Many Splendoured Genius
Description
From the Back of the Book

Contemplatively he said once After all these long years in music, I have realized the validity of the age-long postulate that this nada-vidya is limitless and unfathomable. To us at our level it is revealed through flashes and glimpses which become part of our experience and enrich our vision.

At all levels good music is joyful, desirable, legitimate. It has its place in the mundane as well as in spiritual, liberational endeavour. Music is great, music is divine; music does not degrade or demoralize man, man may demoralize music.

About the Book

It occupied a pre-eminent position in the spectacular developments in the field of Hindustani music in the 20th century. A foremost disciple of Chatur Paandit Bhatkhande and a ganda-bandh shagird of the great Ustad Faiyaz Khan, Ratanjankar was an excellent performer, a learned scholar and a great guru with a number of accomplished disciples.

Ratanjankar was Principal of the Marris Music College, Lucknow, for three decades, Director Bhatkhande Sangeet Vidyapeeth and the first Vice-Chancellor of the Indira Kala Sangeet Vishwavidyalaya, Khairagarh. As a frequent broadcaster and Vice-Chairman Audition Board, he had a long association with All India Radio. A composer par excellence he has over 750 compositions to his credit and wrote several authoritative books and articles, giving new dimensions to the entire musical complex. Ratanjankar was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 1957.

All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
