The Music of India History and Development: Volume II
The Music of India History and Development: Volume II
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, Muslim and British Periods. He 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 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. II), he has through light on the state of music from the eleventh century A.D. to present day. He has dealt with leading musicologists and theoreticians of those days and the valuable contribution made by them. The contribution made by Sharang Dev to the art of Indian music remains unequalled to this day. The author has, therefore, thrown enough light on the man and his invaluable treatise called Sangeet Ratnakar.

The Sangeet Acharya has also dealt with the contributions made by Amir Khusro, Tan Sen, Swami Hari Dass, Ghulam Ghaus, Baiju Bawra and others. He has also made reference to such important books as Rag Vibhoth, Swar Melakala Nidhi, Chatur Dandi Parkashika, Sarma-i-Ishrat, Nad Vinod Granth, Kanoon-i-Rag etc.

The sailent features of this volume include development of two systems of Indian music - Northers and Southern. Northern system covered Rag Ragnis, including Dhrupad, Dhammar, Khyal, Tappa and Thumri. It also covers Thath System of music introduced by Pandit Vishnu Narain Bhakhande.

It is hoped that the students, teachers, artistes, critics and historians of art in India and abroad will find the book 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.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
