    Certainly, this is an effort of love and passion.Thank you.Together with Prashaan Hemraj, we produce a Hindustani Classical music on a reginal radio station Hindvani called RaagVaani. We find your blog a very useful source of reference to cross check our interpretation of ragas used in the Hindi Film Industry. Once again, thank you very much.

    Very nice effort ..helpful to beginners.

    A very informative and useful collection for music lovers. There is a very thin boundary between various ragas and so some songs are classified into different ragas by different musicians. This is because the rules of ragas are not a subject of pure science like physics, chemistry, maths etc. but they are like grammer (of languages).
    Overall a nice effort, I should say!

    Aahista Aahista from Swades is a pure, out and out Charukesi and not Bhairavi.

    Hi
    Thanks for the information. I am teaching music to 2nd and 3rd generation of Indian youth and your site offers them a valuable list of rich collection of songs,ghazals etc.Please continue to expand your contribution.
    Please continue to be thick skinned with the critics of this site etc. Even ignore them completely as their contribution is negative.
