It covers the aphorism and also the actual form of music of this age, widely known as "Hindusthani Sangeet Padhati" expounded by the late Pt.V.N.Bhatkhande more than half a century ago.

It also deals with the fundamentals and history of the various type of songs, with rare traditional compositions and description of the various musical instruments (alongwith illustrations ) in a lucid manner. It will prove to be very valuable for students and scholars of music.
