The Music of India
The Music of India
Description
About the Book:

Indian Music possesses so much value for the life of the people of India that it aught to be known and understood by every man and woman who has India's good at heart, so that it may become cultivated in every city and village throughout the land. The music of India embodies new ideas of harmony and melody - finer notes, intricate and subtle variations which exemplify the beauty of "Ragas" of Indian music. Spiritual communication through music, enchanting life through music, soothing nerves and creating harmony and poise in every day life through music, depicting deepest emotions of life are a few phases of Indian music, the divine art.

The purpose of the book, then, is to provide sufficient information to make insight possible; so that the educated Indian and also the European may be stirred up to such a living interest in Indian music, both vocal and instrumental.

Ina, Germany
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.
