The Hexal System and the Mela-karta Ragas - Essay

An old essay of mine, just uploaded:

While doing my bachelor's degree. I was introduced to the mathematical concept of Number Systems. When this is applied to Carnatic music, there emerges an interesting association between The Hexal System and the Mela-karta Ragas.

Hi Vijayanand and Rahul,
Thanks a lot!
And if I may ask, did the essay keep you going till the end? or "end of short version"? Just curious :)

I read it till the end.

I thought it was a good observation but my interest level (when reading this) was not as high as some of your previous blogs.
