Abstract

TIME BASED STUDY OF THE INFLUENCE OF MORNING AND EVENING CLASSICAL RAGAS ON PROTEIN, CARBOHYDRATE AND CHLOROPHYLL OF SELECTED MEDICINAL HERBS. APPLICATION OF RAGA - TIME CONCEPT TO INCREASE MEDICINAL VALUE OF SELECTED PLANTS

Poornima J. Aithal* and GeethaViswanathan

ABSTRACT

Classical music is proven to enhance metabolism and gene expression. 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 altering the specified time will antagonize and alter the nutritive value of the plant. 30 kitchen herbs of medicinal value are taken in separate pots. Plants are divided into five groups of six herbs each. 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 series of three test runs. At the end of experimentation, the plants were harvested and estimated for protein, carbohydrates and chlorophyll. Results show that protein and carbohydrates were higher in the plants exposed to morning rag in the morning and evening rag in the evening as compared to the plants whose music was interchanged or the control. This finding can be used to quantitatively improve the productivity and nutritive value of the medicinal plants. 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: Morning Raga, Evening Raga, classical music, antagonize, Protein, Carbohydrates.
