Sargam notations for
Song : Phoolon Ka Taron Ka
Movie : Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971)
Singer : Lata Mangeshkar / Kishore Kumar
Musician : R. D. Burman
Lyricist : Anand Bakshi

(Sargam produced on C# Flute)


Simplicity of this evergreen composition is its highlight.  And perhaps that has what made this song immortal.  Written by Anand Bakshi and composed by RD Burman, this song has two versions, one is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and the other is sung by Kishore Kumar.  Both versions are as popular as they were at the time of release nearly 5 decades ago.  The song depicts bonding between a brother and a sister, and is a must to hum, especially, on Rakhi / Rakshabandhan festival in India.

Playing this song on flute or any other instrument is very easy as it contains no flat notes.  If you play it on C# scale, then only Dha and Ni are played at Lower Octave (Mandr Saptak).

However, one should not hurry to play the notes at one go.  It is advised that you should take the above notations as guideline and gradually build up speed that is required to play the song.   Even at a very slow yet steady pace, these notations will sound magical and touch the hearts of the listeners.

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.
