Raag Description: Eliminating Pancham in Raag Todi results in the melodic atmosphere of Raag Gurjari Todi. This Raag is also known as Gujari Todi. It is very effective in producing Karunya or Karuna Ras.

As compared to Raag Todi, Komal Rishabh is strong in Gurjari Todi and is rendered Deergh. This can be expanded in all the three octaves. The following combinations are truly representative of this sweet melody:
