Book Description

About the Book
We hold with pardonable pride that all the fine arts-Music. Painting, Poetry, Sculpture and Architecture- flourished scientifically in India from very ancient times and that each of them had advanced to such an extent so as to possess well established rules. In support of this we see even at the present day, colossal buildings of rare architectural beauty, temples, beautiful pictures, life-lick statues in granite, exquisitely moulded figures in different metals, ancient poems which delight the hearers to a remarkable degree and any number of Ragas to chant those poems in a melodious manner. On the other hand, we find from experience that the measurements of Srutis which form the basis of all music and the system of producing Ragas from Srutis, have gone out of use for many years. Fortunately these Srutis, the Ragas based upon those Srutis and the compositions of our ancestors have been preserved by traditional and oral transmission. We have to regret that the music of those who are ignorant of Srutis and the Ragas derived from them is as useless as the linguistic ability of a man who has learnt many languages just by hearing them talked, without being able to read of write any of them. Hoping that some of the distinguished Kamatic musicians would help in arriving at definite conclusions as regards Srutis the Sangeetha Vidhya Mahajana Sangam was started by me in Tanjore of the 27th of may 1912.
