Introduction and emergence of Harmonium in India and when and how did it come to India or Indian classical music? How can a technically wrong instrument which was banned, be more popular? What exactly is the problem in a Harmonium or Piano? How is harmony and melody connected in Indian classical music? Were you the 1st to actually think of creating a 22 Shruti Harmonium?
Can one develop an ear to be able to listen to 22 Shrutis? If yes, How? What could be the process of learning and unlearning the existing Western Shruti structure? If 2 people are singing (For e.g.: Rajan and Sajan Mishra or Mallikarjun and his son) Both sing the exact shadja, but still, we can identify 2 different people on stage. How is that possible? What else have you come up with, in your research on 22 Shrutis ? What is the message would you like to leave to the listeners about 22 Shrutis ?
