If there could ever be an embodiment of beauty in Indian Classical Music, then no gharana could probably make a more righteous claim than the Kirana. The word gharana may require enunciation before proceeding further. It has been derived from the word ghar, meaning home and is infact an abode (not necessarily in the physical sense), but one which enshrines the essential character traits of a gharana (a school of thought).
