Yes. Dr.Raghavan gave an invited address
at New Delhi and during that occasion of
National Recognition , he gave  akey note
address .That was later released as a monograph.
This may be out of print now.

I might have given away my copy of this monograph.
A search can be made thru special libraries.

Are you a Musician or a student of the Bhakthi Movement ?
