Music is a great source of relief and acts as a stress-buster. The physical and mental fatigue which results from following the daily grind of routine can sap one’s energy. There exists a feeling of excruciating tiredness.

The feeling of utter exhaustion is relieved by the natural notes of the raga ‘Bhoopali’. ‘Bhoopali’ or ‘Bhoop’ is a pentatonic raga which gives importance to the consonance between the gandhar and dhaivat. Listening to the strains of the raga ‘Bhoopali’ after a hard day of ceaseless unremitting work one feels as if it removes tiredness.

It is said that most ragas convey what they do because of their associations. One associates the raga ‘Megh’ with the rainy season. Summer on the Indian sub-continent is unbearably hot. The red hot sun literally turns the earth into a veritable furnace. With the onset of monsoon rains, one feels the fresh fragrance of the earth and the rains act as a life-giving force.

There is Greenery all around which is reflected in the raga ‘Megh’ played on the CD provides the feeling which removes tiredness.

The pain and the anxiety which is a direct consequence of the struggle for survival is reflected through the komal notes of the raga ‘Gunakali’. The komal‘re’ and ‘dha’ mirror this feeling.

Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya, one of the most accomplished santoor-players of the country plays a solo piece in this raga. Restfulness pervades the rendition of the raga ‘Gunakali’. This pentatonic raga has a combination of ‘shuddha’ and ‘komal’ notes. The consonance between the note ‘komal’ re and ‘komal dhaivat’ transmits a feeling of restfulness.

There is the note ‘ pancham’ or ‘pa’ which is like a solid pole in our musical scale. It is a permanent and reliable resting point for the musician on the one hand and it gives enormous strength and a sense of assurance to the listener too.
