Apki ankhon me kuchh

apki ankhon me kuchh notations

Singer : Lata – Kishore Kumar
Lyricist : Gulzar,
Music : Rahul Dev Burman,
Movie : Ghar (1978)

I have tried to produce Sargam notes for this evergreen romantic song on my G# scale flute taking Re as the first note.  This song is based on Raag ‘Kedar’ which was the favourite raag of R D Burman.  He had composed maximum number of his songs in this raag, including his last song “Kuchh na kaho…”.

There are lots of places in this song where you need to use ‘Meend’ ( ~ ) to get the wavy effect, and ‘Murki’ ( { } ) for the ‘harkats’ in the song.

Hope this Sargam notation makes you happy when you play it on your instruments.  I’m sure once you get a hang of this song, you will not get tired of playing it over and over again.  Good Luck!

How to read SARGAM notations

  • CAPITAL LETTERS = Shuddh Swars (Pure Notes)
  • small letters = Komal Swars (Flat Notes)
  • A Note with # [hash] = Tivra Swar 
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma] = Low Pitch/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote] = High Pitch/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { } = “murki” or “khatka” which have to be played very fast without any pause
  • A Note in ( ) = “kann swar” has to be just touched before moving on to the next note
  • A “~” between two Notes = “Meend”. That is, you have to glide from one note to another slowly to produce that wavy effect.
