Post by msakella »

1.TALAPRASTARA RATNAKARAMU ( Telugu )
2.INDIAN GENIUS IN TALAPRASTARA ( English )
Talaprastara is the 10th and the last element of Tala Dashapranas i.e., ten elements of Tala which are most useful to the practical musician in respect of Svarakalpana. Most surprisingly, in the annals of our music literature itself, this Prastara is the only topic which has never been brought out within the easy reach of the aspirant by any author in any language in any century. After an extensive research spread over a period of four decades this has now been brought out and furnished with full details.

3.TALAPRASTARA OF NISSHANKA SHARNGADEVA’S SANGITA RATNAKARA - with a critical interpretation ( English )
In the annals of our music literature Nisshanka Sharngadeva’s Sangita Ratnakara is the only work in which this topic, though with full of contradiction and ambiguity, is furnished in more detail than any other work along with some definitions and tables. All these details are brought out with a critical interpretation.

4.SYSTEMATISATION OF PRASTARA DETAILS OF DESHI TALAS ( English )
In the annals of our music literature there are only two works in which serial numbers are furnished to several Talas and they are 1.Sangita Samayasara (Sanskrit) written by Parshvadeva just before Sangita Ratnakara of 13th century and 2.Gayakalochanam (Telugu) written by Tacchur Singaracharya Bros., in 1902. As all these numbers of these Talas are not furnished serially nobody is aware that they are serial numbers. As some of them are found incorrect the full details of the mathematical implications of all these Talas have been brought out in this work to check and cross-check the authenticity of all of them.

5 & 6.SANGITA SVARARAGA SUDHA (Telugu & English)
In the annals of our music literature this is the first time to bring out Special-laya-exercises, Svarakalpana in different Ragas with a number of easily followable symbolized ‘Muktayis’ in Rupaka, Khanda-chapu, Mishra-chapu and Adi (medium & slow tempi & Trisra-gati) in the first part of Svara-sudha, few mathematical Pallavis and Ragalapana of 36 Ragas in symbolized notation in the second part of Raga-sudha.
