The soul, which has seen most of truth, shall come to birth as a philosopher a beauty lover or a fervent musician. Education in music is most sovereign because more than anything else rhythm and harmony find their way to the innermost soul. Music is the one single force most capable of projecting all intuitive knowledge into a philosophic synthesis. Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe. Wings to the mind. Flight to the imagination, charm and life to everything. It is the essence of order and leads to all that is good just and beautiful.” (Plato). Slide 3: In North Indian classical music each traditional ragas is based on a variation of ten basic musical scales or “thaats”. The ten “thaats” are: * BILAWAL *KHAMAJ *KAFI *ASAVARI *BHAIRAVI *BHAIRAV *KALYAN *MARWAH *POORVI *TODI If one were to pick a raga at random, it should be possible to find that it is based on one of these thaats. A Thaat must have seven notes out of the twelve notes, 7 Shuddha, 4 Komal (Re, Ga, Dha, Ni), and 1 Teevra (Ma) placed in an ascending order. 1. Bilawal: Bilawal is the most basic of all the ten thaats. This is a morning raag and its pictorial descriptions creates sensuous ambience.
