Indian classical music is closely linked with nature. It is generally believed in musical circles
that Raags evoke the feelings of the season with which they are associated, and are usually sung
and played in concerts to celebrate the onset of the same. It is believed that only in this
period the Raag appears to be at the peak of its melodic beauty and majestic splendor. Each
season calls for a different kind of celebration. Some of the Indian classical raags
traditionally associated with the seasons of monsoon, spring and autumn are Basant Bahar, Malhar
and Gorakh Kalyan.
