Book Description

About the Book
This book is of crucial importance for rasikas who wish to "understand" the meaning of the content of the krtis. The words and syllabic meanings of well-known krtis have been analysed. - Significance of the raga and laya variations in the krtis has been highlighted. Krtis are grouped according to their content under Ganesa, Siva, Vishnu, or Devi.

In Karnatak Music, classical ragas are expressed not just as alapana but also enjoyed as krtis. These highly classical songs are replete with choice words, emotions and mythological references. Words and syllables are colored with multiple layers of exalted emotion, and echoes from Vedic chants.

By understanding the literal and suggestive meanings in krtis, dancers and musicians can bring out fine nuances and deep bhava of each krti. Listeners can derive full aesthetic satisfaction by understanding the sahitya.
