"SPRING TIME -VASANTHAM"

 "Time" is a Supreme Power in the Universe.It is rhythmic,cyclical in nature.Measurement of time in Indian Music is very important.

"Vasantham" means Spring time Ragam and is considered an Auspicious raga ushers the spirit and one that dispels fear and instills hope.

Vasantha ragam is associated with the emotion "Peace" and has been suitably named since all that is associated with it is hope and positivity.This raga is suitable for singing in the evening time.

There could be a general confusion between identifying the ragam Lalitha and the ragam Vasantha which do sound similar in certain phrases.But the characteristic difference is Vasantham has SMGM (NO R)while ascending where as Lalitha has Ri both ways.Vasanth means the brilliant season of spring, gentle loneliness of quite joy.
