I am a beginner. I am an insignificant speck in this universe. I hope to imbibe the spirit of Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya in this blog. I bow down in deep reverence, love and gratitude to all the great souls who have made a contribution to music - be it saints and musical greats, living legends, established contemporaries or budding talents. Salutations to all those great men (and women) in this world !
I will quote citations and references where necessary. The readers are advised to take my opinions with a pair of tongs - for mistakes are inevitable. Corrections are welcome. A heavily ambitious project. There are already numerous sites doing justice to their philosophy of existence. Only time will tell, as to how this project progresses. Even if one soul, finds sense in this blog, and gets interested in some form of music, I would consider that as a job well done.
Lastly, people in my life have been so so generous when it comes to imparting their musical knowledge to me. I dedicate this blog to them.
PS: A series of posts taken from its parent blog Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya, posted again, for the sake of completeness.
