Very useful book. Though it should be noted he casts a bit of doubt on the Dasam Granth Sahib, too.

The audio of the Youtube video is extremely bad, can't really even be heard.

Yes he admits that he is unsure that Guru Sahib could use certain words in CharitroPakhyan.

The audio is ok. The interference is from the pakha which is annoying.

 

But do you see the difference in writing in Raag and Chhand? That was my point.

Right, and it's a good point. Again, the compilation of the Chhand names in the books is great. I haven't seen that in one place anywhere else. I think the scan is a bit off, though, some n's look like r's.

Regarding Raag being sung, and Chhand not: A lot of people do keertan of Dasam Bani (outside of the Shabad Hazare, which are in Raag). For example, selections from Bachittar Natak.

Raag is a musical measure, Chand is a style of poetry. No correlation there.

Its not a mandate from Guru Sahib. Kirtanis do it on their own personal thinking.

I think that as kirtan is more established in Gurdwaras than recital of chhands, some kirtanis are using it in the form of kirtan to deliver its knowledge to sangat.
