Cover. A 17th century Indian miniature that visually recreates the mood and melodic force of what in Indian music is called “megha malhar rag,” melody that goes with the rainy season. Not shown is a couplet describing the melody. The central figures are Radha and Keishna singing a song of the same rag or melodic line. This miniature typifies Indian art’s synthesis of love for earthly life and concern for the divine. This and other photos in pages 33-43 are by Darshan Lall, courtesy of the National Museum, New Delhi.
