Sargam (notes) for song Bade Acchee lagte hai
Film : Balika Badhu (1976)
Music : RD Burman
Lyrics : Anand Bakshi
Singer : Amit Kumar

This is such a beautiful creation of R D Burman!  One of the personal favourites of the singer, Amit Kumar and mine as well.  It took me long to find out the first note of this song.  I was playing Sa earlier, which initially sounded good but I wasn’t getting the right notes for the Interlude Aalap.  So I switched from Sa to Re for the first note and yes, I got the Sargam right after that.

I used C middle flute to write the sargam notations of this song.

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.
