Raag:the soul of indian classical music.

                     A raga is one of the melodic modes used in Indian classical music.It is a series of five or more musical notes upon which a melody is made. In the Indian musical tradition, rāgas are associated with different times of the day, or with seasons. Indian classical music is always set in a rāga. Non-classical music such as popular Indian film songs and ghazals sometimes use rāgas in their compositions.

Monsoon Ragas
               Raga is a noun derived from the Sanskrit root ranj, meaning to colour red, to delight.Red is the colour of passion, hence raga implies the emotional content of a song which delights the listener.King Nanyadeva of Mithila (1097-1147) wrote that the variety of ragas is in finite, and their individual features are hard to put into words. He wrote : Just as the sweetness of sugar, treacle and candy cannot be separately described, but must be experienced for oneself.A raga must evoke a particular emotion or create a certain 'mood'.Each Raga has a name. It also has a character, which can be devotional, erotic, bold and valorous, or tragic.Time of day when it is best performed, usually specified as a 3 hour interval. However the beauty of the raga is not affected by the time of the day it is sung. 
               Some Ragas are related to seasons. For example, Raga Malhar.Ragas are not static. Some can be traced back to ancient or medieval times, others originated only a few centuries or even a few decades ago.However, all ragas have undergone transformations over the centuries. Many of them have fallen into disuse.

Existence of music in stance of nature.

                   Can you ever count the presence of Music In Nature.The nature itself speak music out deeply through his naturals props.From the dawn in morning till midnight,we encounters to music created by nature .Nature swirls & twirls the music in every corner of universe with alluring sound.Here is the small poem that depicts its existence.....

              Music is where,music is where,
          in moving of fan,clapping of man
          in crying of baby,laughing of lady
          what brings care,music is everywhere

                                                   Music is where,music is where,
                                                   in falling of rain,running of train,
                                                   in flowing of river,shivering of  fever
                                                   what dumps fear,music is everywhere
                                                   Music is where,music is where,
                                                   in ringing of bell,singing of whale
                                                   in roaring of lion,snoring of bryan
                                                   what asks for dare,music is everywhere

As it is said that GOD presents everywhere so is music.Music acts as remedies for sorrows & pain,escapes  the boredom ,bring peace in mind.Neither you wants to avoid music nor music.Just step in the world of music to fill your bosom with joy & happiness.some of the quotes of music says When words fails,music begin,Music is the medicine of breaking hearts,without music life would be a mistake,When word fails,music speaks. Thia is what music is all about for us.
