The music of North India has attained its world renown largely through its two most prominent stringed instruments, the Sitar and the Sarod. Yet their story has until now remained hidden in the oral traditions of professional family lines, and in largely inaccessible 19th-century books. This work brings together for the first time material from written, oral, and pictorial sources to trace the early history of the instruments, their innovators, and their music.

She received a Ph.D. from the Department of Musicology, Banaras Hindu University, under the guidance of Professor Prem Lata Sharma, in 1982. Sitar and Sarod in the 18th and 19th Centuries are based on her Ph.D., dissertation.
