This work serves as an important link between ‘Brihaddeshi’ and ‘Bharata Bhashyam’. The unique and novel angles provided to the common essentials of music such as-Nada, Shruti, Grama and treatment of Ragas makes it a solitary work of exceptionally special features. Although it is a very important and interesting piece of work, it has not received the due attention of music scholars.
