Chitravina N. Ravikiran's Level 2 of `Perfecting Carnatic Music', published by the International Foundation for Carnatic Music (IFCM), was released in Chennai on July 14th, by N. Ram, Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu. The first copy was received by V. V. Sundaram, arts patron & organizer of the Cleveland Tyagaraja Festival, the largest Carnatic music festival outside India. The book is a sequel to 'Perfecting Carnatic Music - Level 1', published in 1999.

Satya Prabhakar, CEO of Sulekha.com released two CDs 'The Exquisite Bhairavi', presented by N. Ravikiran and 'Arpanam', by Savita Narasimhan. Both CDs have been produced by IFCM.

At the function, Ravikiran introduced Aditya Kanukurthy, an 11-year-old from Austin, Texas, who has been taking lessons through tele-teaching and in person from him. Aditya's first performance has been arranged by IFCM at Raga Sudha Hall in Mylapore on July 16th.

Interacting with the media later, Ravikiran said that teaching music lessons in the conventional way caused psychological stress in students who often found many excuses to stop learning. The two books he has authored introduce melody and rhythm separately. The books have information about ragas, profiles of a few prominent composers and ideas on how to approach and appreciate the art.
