Raag Description: This Raag is also known as Brindavani Sarang. The combinations ,N S R R P ; m P ; R R m ; S R S clearly shows the intensity of noon time and the summer season to which the melody is particualrly oriented. The Suhddha Nishad (N) here is placed on the Kshobhini Shruti Sthan, that causes disturbance. Hence the Prakruti of this Raag is neither deep nor playful.
