Vasantatilaka - A Meter that rocks

How old is Rock music? 45 years? 60 years? .... 100? 200?

I would say even more,.. now, How is that??

Vasantatilaka meter is one of the old meters or Chhanda being used in Sanskrit Literature and verses,

The famous example of this is a prayer called 'Shakradaya Stuti', in Chandipaatha or the prayer of goddess..

This has been metered in Vasantatilaka. If you hear this, it is a meter in which the emphasising or main beat is not the 1st 3rd 5th and 7th but the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th one...

1       3   4    5     6    7   8  9  10 .....

which is a peculiar and basic characteristic of Rock..
