For practitioners and enthusiasts of Indian Classical Music, compositions for string instruments - Sitar, Sarod and Vichitra Veena - are hard to find. For the first time, 8 raga-s have been documented and presented in an easy to read and play notation system: Ome Swarlipi. A treasure trove of compositions, tana-s and toda-s for raga-s such as Yaman, Des, Khamaja, Bihaga, and Kafi, this book brings Misrabani style, one especially suited to string instruments, to the English-speaking world in a universal script which address the limitations of traditional Indian music notation systems.

Excellent Hindustani music text book as a resource for the students of North Indian Ragas. OME Swarlipi notations size 14 are "very small" that requires a special effort to read it carefully. It should be improved to a higer letter size 12 same size AS OTHER TEXT IN THE BOOK in the next revision. Additional Ragas should be added in a second volume with an interactive Ragas CD taht would help music students to practice. Essence and Highlights of 8 Ragas are well developed. Price of the book is appropriate. It wopuld be a good inestment by music teachers to train their students various raga phrases and tanas methodically.
