In the first part of this work, Dr. Mansukhani has dealt with the originand history of Indian classical music. He has explained thefundamentals of the system and analyzed competently the differentaspects of major 
 Ragas
and
Talas
of Hindustani music. Though hedoes not minimize the value of instrumental music, he affirms thatvocal music holds an important place in India and as such voicetraining and modulation must get proper attention.The second part of the book is devoted to a critical study of Kirtan --a traditional form recognized by the Indian Sangeet Natak Academy.Kirtan is a special esthetic form which blends the excellence of poetrywith high melody. The
 Bhakti
poets helped in evolution of Kirtan.The Sikh Kirtan is a notable contribution of the 10 Gurus.Though Sikh Kirtan may not be called a separate school of Indian music, it is generally accepted as a distincttradition by musicologists. The Gurus enriched devotional music both in classical and folk styles. Their Shabadscombined the beauty and significance of inspirational poetry with melodic excellence. They produce a feeling of thesuper conscious and link human consciousness with the supreme reality.The author examines the different styles of Sikh Kirtan in the special features of the
 Ragas
used in the Sikhscripture. For the first time the, the notation of 31
 Ragas of Guru Granth Sahib
has been supplied with necessary particulars. The book is a work of research on an important musical tradition and deserves a place on the shelves of  public and private libraries.
