Book Description HTML

Conservative Chennai, South India's cultural capital is a crucible for prosperity, and tradition at crossroads. An image of Madras conjures up mathematicians and musicians, curd-rice eaters and coconut-oil users, mustachioed men and Mylapore maamis. Set amidst its exclusive Carnatic community known for its fondness for cricket, classical/Carnatic music and determinedly staid ways, Soul of Music comprises modern music stories that meander through friction between generations and perceived hierarchy of professions. Written in the literary fiction genre, the motley group of stories are a fictitious collection of music tales. Soul of Music is a debut collection of ten short stories set in the relaxed South Indian atmosphere.
