At the core of the Indian notation system are four concepts:
1. Śruti (or Shruti): Meaning “sound” in Sanskrit. It is the smallest difference between two sounds of a tuning system - thus it may me considered to be equivalent to a note. It is often referred to as a ratio of the two frequencies under study. Various ratios exist and each has its own name. “Unison” of the western system is termed as “Kshobhini.” In classical times there were 22 shrutis in use dividing the octave into 22 notes.
