Description

Here is the first ever and only detailed account of Gandhi and music in India. How politics and music intersperse with each other has been paid scanty, if not any, attention, let alone Gandhis role in it. Looking at prayer as politics, Singing Gandhis Indiatraces Gandhis relationship with music and nationalism. Uncovering his writings on music, as...hram bhajan practice, the Vande Mataram debate, Subramanian makes a case for a closer scrutiny of Gandhis oeuvre to map sonic politics in twentieth century India.
