Table categories, arrangement[edit]

I understand I sort of screwed up the layout but I'm sure someone will fix it (I don't know all the intricacies). However, I would like to say some things about some of the categorizing. One, the two most major forms of quasi-classical music in India are Bhajans and Ghazals, so I added that in. Secondly, 'religious' music is not so defined as to merit one for each musical tradition. Most religious music is played under the styles of Hindustani or Carnatic. The buddhist one was ridiculous, since it represented only music that exists outside India; there isn't even a major Buddhist form in the Indian subcontinent. I don't think the religious grouping is appropriate anyway, since no major scholarly review of Music in India looks at it that way. So I would object strongly to that sort of categorizing. --LordSuryaofShropshire 02:23, Sep 2, 2004 (UTC)

Bhavageete[edit]

I have reinserted bhavageete which is one of the important music styles of India. I don't see any reason for removing that section when some awards section which doesn't even have an article yet and some cleveland tyagaraja festival which only the organizer knows are present.Gnanapiti 20:25, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
