7. (i) What steps did he take to save himself?

(ii) Did his plan work? How?

Ans: (i) Tansen was unhappy because he knew that the heat given off by singing the Raga Deepak would burn him to ashes. He then had an idea to save himself. If someone sang the Raga Megh at the same time, properly, it would bring rain. He would teach his daughter, Saraswati, and her friend, Rupvati to do it. They practiced night and day for two weeks. Tansen told them that they must wait till the lamps started burning, and only then start singing.

(ii) Yes, his plan worked. On the appointed day as Tansen began to sing Raga Deepak the air became warm and the people in the audience were bathed in perspiration. The leaves on the trees dried up and fell to the ground, birds fell dead, and the water in the rivers began to boil. At once Saraswati and Rupvati began to sing Raga Megh. The sky clouded over and the rain came down and saved Tansen.
