Raag Description: Raag Charukeshi is a very melodious Raag. This Raag is relatively new as it is adopted from Carnatic Music into Hindustani style of singing.

This Raag can be rendered without any restrictions in all the three octaves. Pancham is skipped occasionally in Aaroh as well as Avroh like G m d P or P d n d m G R. One can find shades of many Raagas in Charukeshi like: S R G m shows Nut Ang, G m d P shows Bhairav Ang, n S' R' S' d ; d n R' S' shows Darbari shade, R G m R S shows Nut-Bhairav Ang, which combined together gives this Raag a unique and independent character.

Following combinations are illustrative of the Raag: m G R ; G R S ,n ,d S ; S R G m ; R G m R S ; G m d P ; m G R ; G m P d n S' ; G m d n ; n S' ; n S' R' S' d ; d n R' S' ; n S' n d P ; P d n d m ; G R G m R S ; ,n ,d ,n R S ; m P d n S' R' ; S' R' G' R' ; G' R' n d S' ; S' n d P d m G R ; G m d P ; G m R S ,n ,d ,n R S ;
