Abstract

COMPARISON OF THE EFFECT OF MORNING AND EVENING INDIAN CLASSICAL RAGAS ON THE PHYSICAL PARAMETERS OF SELECTED MEDICINAL PLANTS. A MODERN APPROACH TO ANCIENT WISDOM- IMPACT OF SONIC NOTES AT ASSIGNED TIMES ON THE MEDICINAL VALUE OF SELECTED PLANTS

Poornima J. Aithal* and Geetha Viswanathan

ABSTRACT

Indian Classical music has proven to influence plant growth positively. Indian classical music is seen to score over western classical, rock, country music and monotonous sounds. Objective of this experiment is to study the effect of classical Morning and Evening Ragas on plants and determine if their effect co-related to the time of the day during which it is played and to determine if antagonism will be displayed if the raga timings are interchanged and not played at the specified time. 40 kitchen herbs of medicinal value are taken in separate pots. Plants are divided into five groups of 8 herbs. Morning Raga is exposed in the morning to first group. Evening Raga is exposed during evening to second group. The timing of the ragas were interchanged and played to the third and fourth groups respectively. The control group was not exposed to any music. Growth was recorded and studied for 15-30 days over a set of three test runs. Physical parameters such as height of the shoot, thickness of the stem, number of leaves were tabulated and analyzed. Results varied significantly. It showed that, each plant responded differently to the ragas at different times of the day during which it is exposed. Antagonism was clearly exhibited in the morphology of the plant. Many Indian ragas are sung or played irrespective of their conventional proper time. But it has not been possible to demonstrate that on account of the wrong time the melody has not had the desired effect. This is why it is difficult to accept the old Raga Samaya (time) theory fully in the present day. This study aims to study the Time-Raga theory. The main factor considered in this study was time of the day during which the specified time based raga is played.

Keywords: Classical music, Morning Raga, Evening Raga, antagonize, morphology.
