Raag Description: The old Raag Bhinn-Shadj is now more popularly known as Raag Kaushik-Dhwani. Although, Madhyam has a special place in this Raag, other notes have equal importance too. Which gives this Raag a large space for elaboration. This is a straight forward Raag and easily expandable in all the octaves.

The use of Gamak and Meend helps in beautification of the Raag. In Avroh, rendering S' D in Meend seems more melodious then the straight forward S' N D. This Raag creates a deep and soothing atmosphere. The following combinations of notes will clearly bring out the Raag mood -

S ,D ,N S G m ; G m D ; G m ; G S ; G m N D m ; D N S' ; S' G' S' ; G' S' N D ; D N S' D m ; m D G m ; G S ;
