This is the Samay Chakra of Hindustani Classical Music within the 24 hours of a day.
There are also Seasonal Raags which have a place in this chakra. In that particular season ,those Raags can be performed in any prahar of the day , because they depict the general mood of the season . For example , Basant can be sung at any time of the day in Spring, but it also has a place in the Samay Chakra : Raat Ka antim prahar.
Only Hindustani Classical music has a Samay Chakra and Seasonal Raags

Hey new dawn,
On the auspicious moment of birth reveal again.May you blazon as mist you adjourn-
Like the Sun
Piercing breast of maze reveal yourself yet again.May the joys of life reveal again.
May upon you the infinite eternal daze unveil once againConch shells resound on eastern horizon, and so in my heart
Resounds the eternal dawn.
On the day of my revelation.
Team Ananda Dhwani wishes all friends and well wishers
A Merry Christmas !

Our Inspiration: Sitar Maestro Late Pandit Deepak Choudhury
Ananda Dhwani Music Trust’s inspiration, Late Pandit Deepak Choudhury, was one of the foremost disciples of the much revered genius, Pandit Ravi Shankar.
Deepakji was considered to be one of the doyens of the Maihar Gharana, in his generation of musicians. Besides performing in concerts the world over, he was a faculty in the Department of Instrumental Music, Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata, till his demise.
The name ‘Ananda Dhwani’ originates from the Raga Anandhwani, composed by Deepakji. The Raga is a blend of the Carnatic Raga, Hamsadhwani and the Hindustani Raga, Anandi Kalyan.
Through Ananda Dhwani, the legend of Deepakji will be carried forward by his students and grand students, led by his foremost student, Sangeet Ratna Shri Prabir Bhattacharya.
Our Heartfelt Pranams to Pandit Deepak Choudhuryji for his inspiration.
