My guru Dr. Pradiptaben Ganguli has played this role for me. How can I forget her contribution to my life? She has guided me while writing this book and I am heatily grateful to her.
I have used Bhatkhande Lipy (script) of notation in this book. But I have also included -brief explanation of the paluskar script and notations of one bandish. So that learners can understand both the styles and attain overall development.
These books 'Sangeet - Aaradhana' is the outcome of my long time experimentation and experience with my students and I pray to God that not only the students but everyone interested and involved with music benefit from this book and attain spiritual progress and reach higher plane of life and joy through music.
Thanks to you all once again. I pray to have your cooperation, good will and blessings from you all the time.
