    I don't really understand it. You seemed to repeat over and over that Karnatic music shouldn't be overly restricted by tradition, to keep it's passion and individualism. I just fail to see where you actually got to describing Karnatic music. You at least named Raga and Tala, but you didn't really discuss things like counting cycles, Arohana and Avarohana, Shringara (romantic and erotic): Hasya (humorous): Karuna (pathetic): Raudra (anger): Veera (heroic): Bhayanaka (fearful): Vibhatsa (disgustful): Adbhuta (amazement): Shanta (peaceful), how to bring out the nine main rasas in each raga.

    You could also go over the unique sadhana (teaching system) of Indian Karnatic music.

    And here is a list of good ragas to go over in detail:

    1.Nat Bhairav
    2.Ahir Lalit
    3.Rasiya
    4.Yaman Manjh
    5.Gunji Kanhara
    6.Janasanmodini
    7.Tilak Shyam
    8.Bairagi
    9.Mohan Kauns
    10.Manamanjari
    11.Mishra Gara
    12.Pancham Se Gara
    13.Purvi Kalyan
    14.Kameshwari
    15.Gangeshwari
    16.Rangeshwari
    17.Parameshwari
    18.Palas Kafi
    19.Jogeshwari
    20.Charu Kauns
    21.Kaushik Todi
    22.Bairagi Todi
    23.Bhawani Bhairav
    24.Sanjh Kalyan
    25.Shailangi
    26.Suranjani
    27.Rajya Kalyan
    28.Banjara
    29.Piloo Banjara
    30.Suvarna

    Not only that, but song is a big part of Karnatic music, and you could write several books just on Ustad Amir Khan alone. Also, it is important to understand the yogis, and the ever present religious sentiments of Karnatic music.

    Default Karnatic Music, Traditon and Enlightenment

    Hi Luke Cash,
    Thanks for feed back. Please note that in Indian Classical Music, there are two-Hindusthani and Karnatic Music. This article is on Karnatic Music only. There are references to common features in the article. The articles scope is restricted only to the aspects of Tradition in Karnatic Music, its evolution, growth and its future pointers. I have given the objective of this article in the begining for clarity and understanding.
    You are welcome to discuss, within the scope of this article.
