Vishesh :  This Raag demands special training for both voice and ear to associate komal (Gandhar & Nishad) and Madhyam Teevra, which is distinctly different from Mal-Kauns. Any mistake in Teevra Madhyam will destroy the Raaga's atmosphere, hence the need for special Riyaz. The following melodic combinations are illustrative for good rendering.
