Vishesh : This is a very sweet melody equally popular with both the beginers as well as experts.  P sM G m G combination is at once characteristic of the Raag. The Shuddha Madhyam (m) is employed mainly during Aaroh for beautification viz M P M P G m G or  MP D MP D M P G m G or PM DP MP G m G.
Madhyam  remains Shuddha (m) in Avroh and only in P M G m G  the Madhyam Teevra (M) is employed. This combination is very useful for Vipralambha Shringar Alankar (Separation). An occasional use of N sD P - M P G m G is also noted in expert exponents' presentations rather than N D P.
