Vishesh : This melodic combination impresses instantly and without any difficulty creates its own unique mood. However, the Vakra movements in rendering result more in repetition and hence it can not be performed for longer duration and the effect is then lost. It is a very popular melody and was much in demand though its impression is not enduring (Long lasting).
