Book review

"It is 1974 and friends aniket, Nazrul and Lopa, all very gifted North Indian classical singers trained at the Marris School of Music in Lucknow, have no inkling that in a couple of decades, they'll be going through bittersweet reunion in Ithaca, New York of all places.


Aniket and his friends, leading a relatively contented, musical life, come of age at the Sursagar School of Music in Calcutta when a music conference precipitates a series of dramatic events, which transform their lives in ways none of them could have anticipated.


Much like the peaks and troughs of a 'khayal' or composition, ""THE WHISPERED RAGA"" tells its story in four parts: beginning with the 'alaap', which sets into motion their journey, the 'majh' follows, setting the stage for the impending drama. This triggers a series of flashbacks in Aniket's mind just like the 'asthayi' that lays the foundation of a 'khayal'. As the various crises come to head at a second music conference, the stage is set for the final crescendo or 'tarana'."
