Raag Description: This melody was adapted in Hindustani Music style from Carnatic Music. The presence of Komal Nishad differentiates this Raag from Raag Durga.

In this Raag Pancham is a Nyas Swar and Dhaivat is Deergh (elongated) like: S R P ; m P n D D P . This differentiates this Raag from Raag Surdasi Malhar where Dhaivat is not elongated. This Raag can be expanded in Madhya and Tar Saptak. It creates a soothing atmosphere. The illustrative combinations are:
