Raag Description: Among the day time Raagas, Shuddha-Sarang, a member of the Sarang Family, produces a strong and lasting impression. The Raag mood is at once menifested by the simultaneous presentation of both Madhyams followed by Rishabh in Avroh (M m R). Similarly the notes S ; ,N ,D S ,N R S are Raag Vachak. In this Raag S R M P N S is the usual Aaroh but sometimes P D N S is also allowed. In Avroh, Dhaivat is not a resting note however it is rendered in Meend from Nishad to Pancham touching Dhaivat like: N (D)P.

Madhyam Teevra is used primarily in Aaroh (M P N S' or M P D N S') and Shuddha Madhyam is used only in Avroh like: M m R S or ,N S R m R S. Shuddha Nishad is a vital and a resting note in the Mandra Saptak. Komal Nishad is sometimes rarely used like: M P n P M m R S. Following are the illustrative combinations which shows the Raag mood:

,N S R ; R m R ; S ,N (,D),P ; ,N ,D S ,N R S ; ,N S R m R ; M P ; P R m R ; S ,N S R S ; ,N S R m R M P ; R M P N (D)P ; P N S' R' S' ; S' R' S' N D S' N (D)P ; M P ; M m R ; m R S ,N S R S ;

Raag Shyam-Kalyan is close to Raag Shuddha-Sarang. The presence of Gandhar in Aaroh makes Shyam-Kalyan different from this Raag.
