Vishesh : The notes employed here resemble with notes of Raag Darbari-Kanada, with the difference that Gandhar (g) is forbidden in Aaroh. This Raag is rendered mostly in Madhya and Tar Saptaks unlike Darbari-Kanada, which is more deep and hence is rendered in Madhya and Mandra Saptaks (Octaves). In this Raag Komal Dhaivat (d) should not be repeated lest Raag Darbari-Kanada makes its appearance i.e. the combination of notes m P d d n P should not be employed with deep Gamak as this is a flittering dynamic type melodic form. The combinations S R m P - d n P s - m P S' d n P brings out this form and speedy rendering in Madhya & Tar Saptaks completes the melodic picture of the Raag.
