The one of the basic reasons is that it doesn’t use harmony or counterpoint. Unlike major/minor tonal system in western music which are usually having foundations of either major or minor scale, Indian ragas music focus on a specific mood or rasa or flavor. There is no chord progression system in Indian ragas and it uses only single instrument or voice to express ragas while using Taanpura (drone strings effect) and Indian percussion.
See below a Raga Ahir Bhairav performance by Kapil at his teenage. It was a very casual live recording at that time but it will give you a glimpse of raga feel.
Observation - You will see that raga is a multi-times enhancement of a scale and you can actually render a raga for hours. Raga is a new world of infinite explorations in the scales and there are thousands and thousands of ragas having their own melodic focus, mood and knowledge. Each raga has further lots of compositions based on its scale. Thus it unlocks a new genre of eastern music exploration in guitar by music lover or guitar student
