Vishesh :  This Raag is an ideal melodic format for both types of Shringar viz Vibralambh (Separation) and Uttan (Union) Shringar. For this reason, there are more Thumri compositions in this Raag. The mood is light and enthralling but not sedate. With a husky voice that emits the emotion of painful separation and with Khatkas and Murkiyan, the Raag mood is well brought out decorated with diverse Thumri styles of Panjab, Lucknow & Banaras. The following combinations help in bringing out the poetic mod of the Thumri compositions;
