The Music of India History and Development: Volume I
The Music of India History and Development: Volume I
Description
From the Jacket:

The author, a learned and experienced Sangeet Acharya and a versatile writer, has made a deep study of Indian Music System and compiled this valuable treatise for the benefit of Indian and foreign lovers of ancient, mediaeval and modern music. He has traced the history and practice of this fine art through the Vedic, Buddha, Jain Periods. He has also delved with the progress made in this art during the Hindu Revivalist Movement and the contributions made by the Devdasis.

The Sangeet Acharya has also delved deep into the records of the Archaeological Department, Government of India and reinterpreted the seals excavated from the ruins of Mahanjodaro, Harappa, Lothal and other places of the Indus Valley Civilization.

The author has covered the origin and development of Indian music in two volumes of this book volume I covers the period of development from 6000 B.C. to 1000 A.D. in this (vol. I), the author has thrown enough light on ancient and mediaeval theoreticians and master musicians such as Bharat Muni, Nand Keshwar and others.

There are two salient features of this volume. The first is about the history of Indian music and the second is about Rag and Ragni System. The author has established that music oriented in India about 6000 B.C. and not 1500 B.C. as is believed today. He has also established that Rag and Ragni system was originally introduced by the Buddha Bhikshus who toured eastern and western countries to propagate their religion. That very system was brought back by Muslim Musicologists who came to India along with Muslim invaders.

It is hoped that the students, teachers, artistes, critics and historians of art in India and abroad will find this book to be a useful addition to the literature on music.

About the Author:

The author was born on 1st April 1904 at Bannu, now in Pakistan, in a well-established Khatri family. Since his childhood he took music as his hobby. He was formally initated and educated in the mysteries of music by Pt. Ram Lubhaya, a prominent musician of Rawalpindi. He not only mastered the subject soon, but also emerged as a gifted teacher and successful author and remained so throughout his life. He has written about 80 books on various topics of music for educational as well as professional institutions. From 1940 to 1947 he taught in St. Annie's College, Presentation Convent, Cambridage and D.A.V. College all at Rawalpindi. At the time of teaching in various institutions, he wrote dramas of social as well as religious character with a sufficient matter for music and dance. He got them staged for which he was duly awarded for his writings and performances.

Mr Veer has also been awarded several times for his brilliant musical performances. One of his notable achievements is the invention of musical notation in Braille for the blind, and the combined notation system by joining Indian and Staff music notation system for foreigners. He has also invented a new 'Veer Braille System' which enables the readers - both the blind and with sight - to red them directly without doubts.

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.

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.
