Notations produced on C Middle Scale Flute

Sitting at home during this pandemic – COVID19 – gave me ample time to enrich the list of sargam notations on this website.  Following many requests, I jotted down the Sargam notations for this patriotic song which was written more than 100 years ago!!  It took me some time to figure out that the first note has to be Komal Gandhar (g) on C scale and not the Shuddh Gandhar (G).  All Antaras of this song start with different notes. Pay attention to play komal gandhar and lower octave notes cleanly.  Enjoy!
