Please note that this is just a "quick guide".  It is OK for a beginner, but at some point it will fail you.  There is no substitute for a complete understanding of the musical and technical, issues surrounding the tuning of your instrument.  A more detailed discussion of tuning options is to be found here (Stringing and Tuning the Dilruba and Esraj).
