  1. Varinder Dheer says:

    I believe that Giani Ji has well understood the need of scholars of Devotional Music and Indian Classical Music of certain literature for citation, so he has gone a long to produce such powerful tool of Raag-Kosh to study the various types of Raagas. Giani Ji’s maturity in the subject will bring prosperity to the concern.

  2. Jagmit Mishra says:

    The Raag-Kosh contains all the applied theory of Raag to its each and every entry in complete. This wonderful works of Maestro Giani Ji has induced an air current of better understanding of rare raags. Let Giani Ji live long!

  3. Anand Bharatbaj says:

    I believe that one of your posts ‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib Raag-Kosh’ has triggered the mind of scholars to work densely in the field of Devotional Music and Indian Classical Music. Depth of thinking of intellectuals will accept the supremacy this work done for the benefit of generations.

  4. Do you people have a facebook fan page? I looked for one on twitter but could not discover one, I would really like to become a fan!

  5. Swarana Ram says:

    Thought I would comment and say great Raag-Kosh, nothing can be better than it. It looks great!

  6. Surinder Singh says:

    The Raag-Kosh published here is really a challenge for mastermind works. Maestro Giani Darshan Singh Sohal has wrote it in a very impressive way and I feel it will provide a great help to research scolars of music and kirtan.

  7. Amardeep Sinha says:

    Hi, Just came back here to remind you regarding the facts about this Raag-Kosh. I have never found such at least on internet. It has really decimated my difficulties in analysing the Indian Classical Music.

  8. Raman Lamba says:

    For those who might do search for the details for the raags which are obsolete, this Raag-Kosh by Giani Ji is really useful intelectual works.

  9. Rashpal Kaur Dhingra says:

    Hello there, I was browsing your site but I noticed that raags of raag mala are absent in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Raa-Kosh by Giani Darshan Singh Sohal, thought I ought to let you know.

  10. Sat Pal Chanda says:

    My sis advised me about your site and how great it is. She’s right, I am really impressed with the kirtan and Raag-Kosh. Other’s Raag-Koshs appear to me they’re simply scratching the floor when it comes to what Giani Ji has accomplished.

  11. Partap Singh Thakur says:

    An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Giani Ji’ Raag-Kosh can keep confusions about a raag away.

  12. Raghu Seth says:

    The Raag Kosh given on this site is really a work of appreciation. This Raag Kosh appears tell you clearly all the essentials of every raag enlisted in it. There you cannot find anything which does not go legit.

  13. Gurjit Singh Chadha says:

    I like this concept. I visited your site for the first time and simply been your fan. Continue to keep writing as I am planning to come to read it daily!!

  14. Resham Bawa says:

    I am really experiencing reading Giani Darshan Singh Sohal’s well written Raag-Kosh. It appears like he has spent a lot of effort and time on the Raag-Kosh. I have bookmarked it and I am looking ahead to see something anything more such.

  15. Mota Singh Rathaur says:

    The content on this site is very strong. Style of Raag-Kosh by Giani ji if analysed in accordance with truth is found unique. I congratulate Giani in this regard.

  16. Alaudin Delhi says:

    The Raag-Kosh by Maestro Giani Ji is among the works showing inteleclualism, to say what I though textra knowledgeable in it is ‘Mukh-Ang’ of every raag.

  17. Onkar Singh Italy says:

    I have been reading yoursite for a while now, well at least since you began it, and this is my first comment. I guess that says something about how much people post versus how much people read. Nonetheless, I want to say a big thanks for Giani Ji taking the time out to write. Giani Ji’s is a real maestro and his such brilliant work as Raag-Kosh is so high that even a virtuouso can be dissuaded to go parallel it. I thoroughly enjoy your site and please keep up the brilliant work in 2011.

  18. Ravinderjit Singh Virdi says:

    Very good post. I’ve really enjoyed visiting your pages but Raag-Kosh page is most excellent one. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I also hope you write again soon! Many thanks, I’ll try and check back more frequently. Happy new year!

  19. Mukhtiar Singh Bhalla says:

    Hiya, I was surfing around your website and found that many raags from ‘raag mala’ in the Raag-Kosh were absent. Thought I should inform you so that you may manage to post those missing ones.

  20. Laxmi Devi says:

    I have seen your webpages. Seems like like much to say knowledgeable in especially in the case of Raag-Kosh by Giani Darshan Singh Sohal.

  21. Sukhbir Singh Malta says:

    Very good website of music. I am planning to polish the knowledge of Raags from your Raag-Kosh visiting your site posts as I already know sufficient about Indian Classical Music. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I also hope this site will have more valuable content soon! Many thanks, I’ll try to check back more frequently. Happy new year!

  22. Jaskirat Singh says:

    It is every intellectual’s dream to learn a lot and help other to learn so, isn’t it? Maestro Giani Ji’s Raag Kosh works proves that once he dreamed to learn a lot and through his Raag-Kosh he has managed to help others to learn a lot. Hence his dream has been fullfilled. Isn’t it?

  23. Bikram Singh M.Mus. says:

    Hey! That’s a really great post, I mean the post of Raag-Kosh. I’m very positive I will counsel it to my colleagues and my students of music.In the event you post such posts more please e-mail them to me.

  24. Kumari Jasmin says:

    I am not in a position to decide to thank you for vocal content or the other like Raag-Kosh. Both parts are excellent in their own place. It is my request that if Giani Ji can accept, let Giani Ji illustrate each raag of Raag-Kosh by their own voice.

  25. Hari Pal Singh Sahota says:

    I must say that overall I am really pleased with this site especially the useful content of Raag-Kosh.It is easy to see that you are passionate about putting the content created by intelligentsia. If only I had Sohal Ji’s writing capability I will enjoy much more posts and will be go on without a brake and a break.

  26. C. S. Chawla says:

    I’m linking the webpage of your Raag-Kosh page which is a great hitting page from my personal weblog . This has all the usefull info necessary.
