Vishesh : This Raag is a very sweet melody that announces itself with the combination D s m G R - G ,N s S. The musical compositions in this Raag bear the Shadja-Pancham (S-P) and Shadja-Madhyam (S-m) Bhava and therefore very pleasing and essentially melodic. The following combinations are illustrative;
R R m G R s - D P n D P s - R' R' m' G' R' s - G' N s S' s - D s m s P - N ,N N S'
Though R m P N S' is more regularly rendered, one can also eliminate Nishad t give R m P S' - m P S' s - P N S' R' N S'
also one may adopt N S' P -  P m G R G - ,N s S in place of usual D s m G R - G ,N s S
