Raag Description: It is a fairly well known Raag. One can see clear shadows of Malhar Ang, Hameer Ang and Kalyan Ang together with the glimpse of Kedar and Chhayanut. Hence this Raag is difficult to render smoothly.

G m P G m R S is known as Kamod Ang. Rishabh-Pancham Sangati and the notes G m P G m R S are Raag Vachak. The use of Teevra Madhyam like M P D P may sometimes be skipped and G m D P may also be used. This dynamic melody is rather complex as may be clear from the following illustrative combinations of this Raag.

S m R P (Malhar Ang); R R P G m P G m R S (Kamod Ang); M P D P (Kedar Ang) ; G m D D P (Hameer Ang); G m P G m R S (Kamod Ang); P D P S' S' R' S' (Chhayanut Ang); S' R' S' S' D D P (Kalyan Ang) ; M P D M P ; G m P G m R S ;
