I am not an expert in carnatic music, all these reviews reflect only my understanding of a specific raaga based on the Varnams and Krithis that I have learnt. I have also referred ancient granthas like Sangeetha Sampradaya Pradarshini, Sangeetha Rathnakara, Sangeetha Samayasara and various other text books on music, dissertation papers and audios of Lec-dems presented by great vidwans and vidushis in carnatic music to give a wholesome picture of the raga taken up for review. I dedicate this page to my Gurus who have made this possible for me.
