Preface

My this book titled “Indian Music: A Glance at its Various Perspectives” is a collection of articles, essays and research papers on various fields of music which bring forth information and knowledge to the readers about the broad scope of music in the present era. This book is compiled in two sections; the first one in English language and the second in Hindi language. Most of the topics in English section elaborate the broad use of music for various purpose like mental health, physical health, entertainment, emotional release, therapeutic purpose, improvement of communication skills, better growth of plants etc.

The book starts with “Scope of Music” which throws light on wide application of music in various aspects of our life, while the second chapter “Sociological Perspectives of Music” explains its vitality in our society and culture. Dharama, artha, kama and moksha are the four purusharthas which our scriptures expound us about to live a successful life; how these purusharthas can be achieved through music is well described in the third chapter. In the fourth chapter, it is tried to explain that music is capable of arousing various emotions and feelings and has its effect on human mind. The next one explains that relaxing one’s mind; music gives boost to one’s physical health also. Another expounds that children like music very much as it fascinates everyone with its magical power, it is therefore said that children must be provided with music through which various moral values and ethics can be taught to them easily and amusingly. The power of music is being used for therapeutic purposes also in places like hospitals, rehab centres, correctional centres, clinics, operation theatres etc. Which chapter thirteen and fourteen give details about.

In Hindi section some of the common topics are defined in new horizons with recent knowledge and information. In hope this book will serve the mankind as a good source of information with elaboration of the topics included.

I express my deep sense of gratitude and warm regards to Prof. (Dr.) Anupam Mahajan, University of Delhi, for her valuable guidance and encouragement. I am very much indebted to my parents and family members for all their support; especially my lovely some jaideep Singh to spare me enough time so that I could carry out this work. I owe my gratitude and respect to my husband, Dr. Jaswinder Singh, for his untiring help and sincere advice and support at all the stages till the completion of this project. I dedicate this book to my caring husband and lovely son.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
