The palm-sized book called RIG-3 or (Raga Identification Guide version 3) has had its demand among rasikas.
The current one that is out is a reprint of earlier issues with some additions, based on the response by rasikas, says K. Balasubramaniam, convener of Balaganamrutham, which is a registered trust promoting young talent in classical music.
The book contains nearly 6500 kritis/songs with relevant ragas/composers, and is available for sale; proceeds of which go towards the trust’s activities. The under-300 page guide is easy to carry and very useful for music lovers, continues Balasubramaniam.
