The place of the Raga in Indian Classical Music is indeed unique. the
Romance of the Raga is an attempt to outline the evolution and perspective,
as also the sheer variety and distinct styles, of this powerful and
enthralling medium of spiritual and aesthetic form of musical expression.
It provides a glimpse into the variety of techniques and styles that are
employed for presentation of the Raga and highlights the significant
contribution made by some of the shapers of India's musical destiny towards
the enrichment of boty the systems: Hindustani and Karnatak.

The work also portrays the predominant characteristics of inner
dynamism and resilience, as also the unlimited potential, amazing
elasticity and the power of assimilation of the Raga, as a medium of
creative musical expression. Further, the variety and range of musical
instruments and confluence of Indian Classical Music and Miniature Painting
have been illustrated with a view to enunciating the all-important aspect
of the thematic content of the Raga.
