Veena, a plucked stringed musical instrument is said to have originated from India. Prevalence of Veena goes back to India’s Vedic period when an instrument with arched harp and strings was played by plucking the strings and being kept parallel to the players body with the player known as Vainika.   
Considered to be India’s National Instrument, Veena is the oldest musical instrument that can be associated with Indian History and is played in both Carnatic and Hindustani classical music.
