Sargam notaions for Song : Piya Bawari Piya Bawari
Music : Rahul Dev Burman
lyrics : Gulzar
Singers : Asha Bhosle, Ashok Kumar
Movie : Khoobsurat (1980)
Raag : Bihag

Sargam Produced on C scale flute.

This one is one of the best compositions by RD.  Based on Raag Bihag or Behag, this song was a tough one for me to pull up for writing Sargam, even when it gives a clue in the prelude.  Playing it on Bansuri feels so soothing.  Though it is a bit fast paced song, I would suggest that you should go very slow for a couple of times until you get a hang of it and only then increase the speed of playing it on your instruments.

(Sargam sung by Ashok Kumar)
ता धिक ता ता धिक ता
ता तिक ता ता धिक ता
थिरकत नन्दन बनछुम छन नन
तछुम तछुम तक तीना तिरकत धा
लिये मंग सब सखा संग
मन में उमंग अति उमंग ता
खेलत भुज मेलत लपट-झपट राधा
ललिता चन्द्रा बलि दिये बोर
रंग भोर सर भोर बनवारी
मैं हारी जा-जा री – 3

Ta Dhik Ta, Ta Dhik Ta
Ta Tik Ta, Ta Dhik Ta
Thirkat Nandan Ban Chhum Chhana Nana
Tachhum Tachhum Tak Tina Tirkat Dha
Liye Mang Sab Sakha Sang
Man Me Umang Ati Umang Ta
Khelat Bhuj Melat Lapat Jhapat Radha
Lalita Chandra Bali Diye Bor
Rang Bhor Sara Bor Banwari
Mai Haari Jaja Ri (x3)
