Introduction 1

In this book, The Perfect Note for Life, the author skillfully establishes that music is the only factor quantify the relative notions of time and virtual reality.  He efficiently explains that if the former two notions are viewed independently from each other, then they could create a  divide, which would compromise the idea of the "global village" fostered by the internet. This could create chaos in a system that the world has come to rely on very heavily, now. The note of every beat and the melody of every song is the vibration which unties the two notions and thus quantifies the virtual balance and gives it tangibility. This is definitely a "must read". The author has gone into a space where not many have dared to go, very effectively.

Introduction 2

Life on this earth exist in multifarious forms, with multifarious features and identifications-having common bondage.

What is this bondage? What is the difference between a tiny piece of stone and a tiny insect? The later has in it a small rhythmic  organ that is life in physical form-the heart! But  then life is  also present in plants, trees and flowers -the presence of which is extensively proved. Thus the  living  creatures and nature carry lives in them with all  the  characteristics of life-its ecstasy, its wealth, its glory, its despair expressed  in the rustling of leaves, chirping of birds, wealth of sun, infinity of universe, and in the existence of mankind. All these ingredients of vastness embedded in life are reflected in our living in different forms. The greatest and the  most encompassing  one  being the music. Because music itself is as vast and as diverse as life is. To quote Plato the great  philosopher "Music gives a soul  to the  universe, wings to mind ,flight to imagination and life to  everything ".

A healthy life asks for healthy living-not a life  of  mere affluence, wealth and luxury .Although they say "Sound mind in a sound body " but in reality it is  just  the  other way around .You cannot have a sound body unless you have a sound mind. A sound mind can not  be created  with  medical treatment or by living a wealthy life.

Acharya Sanjoy Chakrabarty in his thoroughly researched book "PERFECT NOTE FOR LIFE" discussed how he discovered a science of better living in music through which he believes an overall  development of human life and civilization  can be  ushered in. In view of the present scenario of human civilization and materialistic aspirations Shri Acharya has beautifully uncovered the scientific truth of words and music. He has described with  elegant scientific truths how life can be both  shaped and lived  healthily with music. To explain importance  of RAGA Shri Acharya further  uncovers the inner strength of music. And explains that musics have unique particular rhythms for a particular time of day and night that merge with wavelengths of the universe of that moment and together they take one to a hallowed height beyond reach of earthly stress. Finally, this book by Shri Sanjoy Acharya should be of great  help for all men and women all over  the world to practice science and physiology of a healthy life.

Introduction 3

The door of opportunity usually opens up for anyone who has loads of talents. I am instantly reminded of the 2nd verse of the11th chapter of Sri Sri CHANDI, which goes like this'vidyah samastastavah Devi vedah' , which means, '' Oh Goddess, the eighteen forms of knowledge of existence is in reality your personification.

"The significance of this verse and the significance of Goddess Durga is because of the word 'vidya', which truly means the knowledge of existence.

In this context the word assumes a unique significance. It almost assumes the vastness of an ocean where countless waves of bliss lash the shores, as if bowing in reverence.

When I first met Sanjay, many moons back, during the DugaPuja celebration amidst the picturesque setting of a bungalow in Barrackpore, my first impression of Sanjay was that of a professor.

However by evening I was introduced to a fabulous artist of voice usually called as Pandit in India. Pandit Sanjay . He presented a wonderful piece in praise of Goddess Durga in that setting which was graced by a few more extremely talented musicians.

There was no advertisement. There was only manifestation and belief. It was not just his presentation or tonal quality which struck me but his absolute mastery in the different aspects and nuances of classical music, as if he was the undisputed emperor of the kingdom of melody.

From his persona or temperament, he was like a sage who had an expertice over several musical instruments. Most importantly he did not come across as somebody who was money minded. While music was in his blood and that he was torch bearer of the purest form of North Indian Classical Music, I soon realized that wasn't his real character.

During the evening and in successive meetings, the more I interacted the more was I awestruck by his perspectives. In due course it became clear to me that he was most concerned about LIFE. Life which all living beings are concerned with or should I say the "ability to live".

Like a flash it was clear to me that Sanjay was professing life and existence,a traveller who was constantly pursuing his mission with utmost passion. Not some one was using his expertise to unabashadely engage in the business of buying and selling for personal gain.

Sanjay loves to live with a community. Hence he has developed a society having a musical environment, to imbibe the virtues of life to his disciples.

At times he appears like a professor as described in the Vedas, some one who seems to have descended from the vedic India to modern India. At times he appears to be someone who is engaged in a battle with the present time, trying to make the impossible happen.

A person with vision is truly a philosopher. Where philosophy ends description begins.

Acharya Sanjay has now begun to shape his philosophy into words and has been tirelessly trying to propagate his vision through his writing because philosophy of life can not be described through the medium of music alone, because life is truly a sacrifice where every human being has to survive the test of fire. 'Twang swaha, twang swadha, twang he vashtakarah swaratmika''.

Every single day of human survival is like a sacrifice and the life has to undergo millions of sacrifices and survive.

On that night of Durgapuja, I was witness to him, performing the role of a vedic professor in the presence of the sacrificial fire.

His greatest asset and inheritance is the blessings of his father.

He is ready to welcome everyone to his philosophy of life where the glimpses of our rich past and the unending sacrifice of the present has shaped his vision for a better tomorrow for all, like the perfectly tuned musical instrument, like the uninterrupted breathing process which keeps the human alive.

He is always on the path to discovery trying to bring the universe and human life back to it's intended trajectory, which for the moment seems to have lost it's way.

It is not anymore possible for us to say that we are the sons of the immortal. There is adultery all around us and we have been rendered increasingly helpless.

Sanjay is not as much concerned about his own self as he is concerned about the youth. He is more concerned about how can the present education system be reformed so that it can truly play it's part in shaping up a human being. He is on a journey of endless research, trying to make the future meet the past.

He has been able to master the secret principles which can calm down the present generation which at times appears to be delirious.

It is tad difficult to bracket this writing under a particular genre. At times it is philosophical, at times serious. At times humorous and at times it may appear to hit you hard but there may be a serious advice. However as the writer is a proven musicologist and his outlook is towards an endless future, you would certainly find the book just like a well composed piece of music, complete with melody pattern of rhythms with gradual unfoldment.

He is perfectly capable of taking you to an unending journey of self discovery where you will constantly reminded of what lies within you. You will be brought closed to yourself. When we think of life as a journey we often think that we have to really travel far and cover a very long distance to reach where we intend to reach .However in reality our journey is actually to look deep inside us to come closer to us and to really know who we are and most importantly love ourselves.

It is impossible to create a modern society with a primitive mind set. All that is required now is cooperation. For the application of his ideas a small modification is all that is needed in the field of education, not a very difficult task, just a small modification.

Purpose of the Book

How this book will help you?


Everything from sunlight to water are waves of frequencies. Nature comprises of waves.

However there are certain waves which improves and increases our vitality and there are some other waves which reduces our vitality. Most of the waves which normally comes out from modern technology powered machines are generally responsible for being oppressive and tyrannical towards life energy.

The collective opinion of all the leading scientists of the world indicates that the longevity of the human race may not last more than a hundred years, if we continue with our present approach towards life. If one turns the pages of ancient civilizations, one would realize how beneficial were the waves emanating from pure sound and pure sangeet for vitality.

As per the modern history of the world, 'Music', the loose English translation of 'Sangeet' or ' Shabda', has been looked at only as a means of entertainment and the notion has not changed much over the years.

On the other hand, as a subject of science, life science has no proper and specific definition of life itself. The most expensive technology, which is the medical technology is functioning without a basic unit of life energy, which was supposed to have been there at the root of any scientific or technology based segment of science.

My belief is that when you apply all your focus and turn and run through the pages of this book with sincerity and honesty, you would find the source of unending life energy in all its abundance from all your surroundings of life, its experiences and from the never ending vastness of your beautiful mind and your thoughts.


In ancient India, the whole concept of education was based on music. Attention, concentration, memory all are related to different aspect of sangeet. Priciples of modern psychoacoustics also support this but somehow the educational systems coined by the Brtitish in 18th and 19th century is mostly followed by the colonial countries even today. This education system terminates mostly at the point of marketing of materialistic pleasures with the help of technology .

A partial life can not compensate for a complete life, forget any concept of education focusing on larger than life knowledge.

However you can certainly avail education which will surely lead a life much larger than your poor past and very average present educated living.

Go through 'THE PERFECT NOTE FOR LIFE ' for you to experience it on your own.

Acharya Sanjay Chakrabarty

About the Author

A glimpse into Sanjay’s life is a very surreal experience, almost dreamlike.

Everybody, including GOD, who bestowed not one but two mothers upon him, pampered Sanjay. The cohabitation of Sanjay’s father and his two wives might come as a shock. However, Sanjay flourished in this distinctly Indian household. The unlikely but real familial harmony between three parents became so banal that he grew up having two mothers, irrespective of biological relations.

Sanjay was pampered by the azure of open sky, the moist green of paddy fields, the vermillion of sunset, the lilting blue of the river. These are luxuries that were beyond the average kid coming from a financially rich family which also enhanced Sanjay’s childhood, forget the poor socio economic conditions of Sanjay’s family during that time. He was pampered by the society, so much so that he spent half his childhood on stage performing some unbelievable songs or Tabla compositions. In addition, his teachers, who seemed to have made him the permanent first boy of his class, pampered him. It was not a mere coincidence for Sanjay to have received two national distinctions in subjects as disparate as physical science and ‘Thumri’ which is a form of Indian Classical Music which is one of the most difficult to master, at the age of fourteen. The root runs deep.

Sanjay had qualified for medical school but a sudden and violent illness ensured that he was spared from doing the dull rounds of a doctor. Eventually, he ended up in two grad courses, which, going by his reputation, does not seem so bizarre anymore; physiology and Bengali Literature.

His father, Ajit Chakrabarty who introduced him to Indian Classical Music mainly to accompany his elder brother Ajay Chakraborty, pampered Sanjay. His career in music took off as a Harmonium accompanist and very soon, he was rubbing shoulders with the very best of contemporary Indian Classical Music – Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Vidushi Kishori Amankar, Vidushi Girija Devi, Vidushi Shobha Gurtu, Pandit Vijay Kitchlu and the legendary Mallikarjun Mansur, on stage. For six or seven years on the trot he was one of the busiest accompanist in Indian Classical Music, running around the globe without any rest.

Sanjay was pampered by litterateurs like Prof. Gobinda Ghosh, Prof. Shankha Ghosh and Prof. Pabitra Sarkar, Prof. Snehangshu Kumar Sarkar and Dr. Amarendra Ganai, who have unearthed the poet in Sanjay, and left a lasting impression of this literary style on him. Since the 80’s his songs and poems have been almost a regular feature in All India Radio, Doordarshan (National Television) and some of the leading music companies. The well known and well endowed vocalists who have lent their voice to his songs include some of the greatest names including Asha Bhonsle, Pandit Ajay Chakrabarty, Hari Haran, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shaan, Kunal Ganjawala, Ustad Rashid Khan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Nachiketa, Haimanti Shukla, Sriradha Banarjee and Reshmi Chakrabarty.

Sanjay was pampered by none other than Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, the Sitar Maestro, who gave him direction at a critical juncture of his life. Disillusioned with the limitations of the Harmonium as an instrument, Sanjay sought refuge in string instruments and studied the intricacies of the Sitar for three years under the master and later under Pandit Ajay Shingha Roy. However another bout of illness once again, prevented Sanjay from transforming into a professional Sitar player. Fate had more cookies in store for him.

Sanjay was pampered by music itself, which revealed itself to him, if only in fragments, and propagated the central idea of Praan Sangeet. Apart from his Kheyal and Thumri performances as one of the best contemporary singers of International level in present day India and being of a stupendous, stunning and breathtaking levels , Sanjay these days devotes a lot of his time towards refreshing, reviving and bolstering “Sangeet” in the fullest sense of the term. He is also focused on Consultation in Sangeet (music) and music related preventive medicines for developed immunity building. His movement has already spread far and across continents, and his research has bloomed and radiated itself in the form of Praan Sangeet.

With all that pampering, it’s nothing short of a miracle in terms of what Sanjay has become today, which would not be the case but for the blessings of Premananda Thirthaswami, his mentor. Sanjay is living the dream of GOD himself. No fate, but only what he makes of it.
