Area of Research
Aashish is currently pursuing Ph.D. and his research focuses on study of structure of Indian classical ragas and its influence on human body.
Some ragas like Darbari Kanada, Khamaj and Pooriya are found to help in defusing mental tension, particularly in the case of hysterics. Raga Malhar pacifies anger, excessive mental excitement & mental instability. The proposed research presented in this paper is aimed to discover the science behind phonetics of raga and its effects on nerve system. This research is one step to explore scientifically the ancient way of alternative medicine i.e. raga therapy, which is a need of the day since current advances in technology and rising workload on human beings is accompanied by stress.
This research focuses on studying the influence of Indian classical ragas structure on human body while person is listening and experiencing an emotion in it by capturing EEG signals. The brainwave signals database will be collected and analyzed to determine the co-relation between ragas and emotional well-being of individuals.
The objectives and aim of this research is to present a strong case which will help medical practitioners like psychiatrists, to treat patient by injecting music stimulus.
Aashish has been honoured with multiple awards for his excellent contribution in the field of education. He has received Best National Research Scholar award 2018 by IRDP, Chennai; Outstanding Scientist Award 2018 by IOSRD in Coimbatore; Best Researcher Award 2018 by IOSRD in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh; and Best Researcher Award 2018 by IJRULA in Trichy, Tamil Nadu. He was instrumental in starting the CSI chapter in the institution and worked as Student branch coordinator (SBC) for six years.
Life is a journey, struggles are inevitable, My Moto is: Be ready.
He is credited with starting the chapter of SPICMACAY at the institute for promotion of Indian classical music and dance and works as its active member.
