Why Raga is called that..an idea.


RA as ppl following this must by now be sick of knowing is the name of the Sun God.
So the celestial or Sun timed singing could be the Ra-ga. ga of course means to sing.
And, as is well known, the ragas are timed according to the Sun! Such and such is the midnight (sun) raga, such and such is the 4 pm raga, the morning raga etc as also the ragas according to the position of the sun i.e. the seasons and the special day positions of the sun i.e the festivals!
Could be?
And would the word Roz(day) also be coming from say Ra-oz or something especially when Ramz in Arabic means to burn and Raml in Arabic means (golden?)sand.
