Description
Preface

Numerous books, in different languages, are available nowadays on Indian Music, but none of them meet the common want of a begin-ner or one who is particularly keen about the principles of the present system of Indian Music and wants to have a clear idea of it leaving behind the old legends which are full of controversies.

This little book has only been compiled for the spread of the art of Music among the educated people, who can hardly devote much time for acquiring practical knowledge but are interested in the theory of the art of "Hindus-thani Music". It deals only with the theoretical portion of the present system known as the "Hindusthani Sangeet Padhati". It provides general information regarding the basic princi-ples, construction and gradual developments, which I believe is enough for tyros. If it succeeds in creating in them a desire for the detailed study of Music, which is supposed to be the finest of fine arts, nothing will give me greater pleasure. I am indebted to many friends for kind suggestions, particularly to Rai Sahib P. B.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
