Indian raga music follows a specific tonal outline that is the serial application of the notes. This book is a collection of aaroh- avaroh (tonal ascent-descent) of Indian raags and dhuns, that is described using traditional solfa, e.g. SRGMPDNS'| S'NDPMGRS, which is read as: sa re ga ma pa dha ni sa| sa ni dha pa ma ga re sa. Its content surpasses all its predecessors and perhaps there is no single book in any language that has as many examples as given in this book. It has the skeletons of more than 6000 ragas corresponding more than 9335 entries of aaroh and avaroh which is rich with practical information. The Oxford Encyclopaedia of Indian music has a description of about a thousand ragas worked by academicians and particularly, not assessed by practicing musicians, comprising inconclusive materials on the ragas.
It has many alternate textbook examples of the raags from the works of many veterans. For those ragas, which have controversial forms and no universally acceptable tonal format, have been presented with the most acceptable raga-wise ascent descents so that the readers get proper guidance about the melody (italicized entry).
