Raga identification made easy!

Week 176 Updates (Week0176)

 

Dear Rasikas,

Happy New Year!

This is an important week for all of us. In an effort to address the feedback provided by our rasikas over time and the technical limitations in the current platform(weebly), we had decided to move to a new web hosting provider. Some of the enhancements that we would like to bring in are also a reason for this change. We would like to thank Weebly which has been a great support for us to get this far.

Sriram Varadarajan (who drives the tech side of Raga Surabhi) has made this migration possible. It was quite an effort to migrate more than 1600 files and assets (unbelievable!) put in place over the last three years from weebly to the new platform.

The URL for the new site is new.ragasurabhi.com. We will do a parallel run for the next few weeks and eventually move to the new site. That said, what does this mean for all of us?

Ragas organized in an alphabetical order for ease of use
Separate page for each raga
Raga comparisons handled in separate page
Quizzes organized week wise and can be launched in separate page
For Raga Surabhi team, this migration helps in automating the weekly updates :)

Hopefully, all these changes have considerably improved the site's performance and user experience :) However, as always, we would like to receive feedback from our esteemed rasikas. This is a beta launch only. We look forward to your support in testing and providing us any feedback and suggestions regarding the new site. There are some more features in the pipeline that we are working on - like display of swaras in Arohanam and Avarohanam for each raga (scale), facebook and twitter integration, message board.... and so on...

With all the migration stuff going on, we have just the quiz and DIY exercises in this week' update. Some of the rasikas feel that the special quiz this time was little more challenging. So here are a few clues :) - all clips contain 10 ragas. Ragamalika and Swaramalika clips are based on twin ragas. Please do send in your answers for the special quiz and the weekly quiz by 12 PM IST on 12th January 2013.
