|I hid a session aye time wi an Indian lad ca'd Ranganathan. He'd a reed
spot on the middle o his pow an' 'e played the bodhran though 'e ca'd it a tambour. He
reckoned that the 'Wild Mountain Thyme' wiz an al Indian tune. Some o' the stuff they've

||I played music one time with an Indian gentleman called Ranganathan who
played the tambour. He recognised 'The Wild Mountain Thyme' as an old Indian tune. Recent
research in archaeology and sociolinguistics lend credence to the possibility. I had been
reading about the history of the Indoeuropean languages when this tune came to mind so I
called it 'Indo-Euro'.
