Singer : Lata Mangeshkar,
Lyricist : Shailendra,
Music Director : Rahul Dev Burman,
Movie : Chhote Nawab (1961)
Based on Raag : Malgunji

Until I got to know that this song is based on Raag Malgunji, I had jotted down the entire notation taking Shadaj (S) as its first note. But, having known that this is Malgunji, I revisited the Raag tutorials on YouTube and thought of re-writing the notations which should be as close to the notations of Raag Malgunji as possible. Malgunji contains both Sudhh and Komal Gandhar (G, g) and Nishad (N, n) Hence, I restarted the song with first note as Komal Gandhar (g).

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.
