The world of music is as vast as an ocean, as endless and infinite as the sky. The present book 'The Importance of Tone, Tune and Text in Indian Music' is an interesting study of music as it attempts to trace out a few distinctive features of music from their origin to this modern time. Tone or swaras gradually were extended with the discovery of srutis. These shrutis were later on used to create different tunes as melodies which gave rise to ragas-the soul of Indian classical music.
Text in music is the via-media through which the massage of a raga or the indication of a rasa comes out to win over the hearts of the listeners. Last but not the least Tala acts as a binding agent between the three and puts life and rhythm into it.
