Hindustani Raga-s Index will prove quite useful to all musician, scholars and students of music who need to consult the main contemporary Devanagari Texts on Raga-s descriptions, composition and Vistara-s. Browsing through the many tables of contents of these works (often in several volumes or parts) in order to extract required information, is a time consuming activity and Moutal's book, although non-exhaustive, will be a tremendous time-saver for consultation.
The present work covers 2821 Bibliographical references of 665 names of Raga-s found in 33 Devanagari texts (in 79 volumes) by 22 major authors.
