Enjoy. The online radio station is playing a piece by Ustad Vilayat Khan right now. Exquisite. Isn't beauty the central aim of Indian music? I feel the same cannot be said of Western classical music. Music of the Baroque period may be an exception. Baroque is my favourite Western mode; Bach my favourite composer. Beauty, invention, art, even devotion.

Happy Onam.
