Singer : Lata Mangeshkar
Lyricist : Naqsh Lyallpuri
Music Director : Jaidev
Movie : Tumhare Liye (1978)


This song is based on Raag Shivranjani which follows the following notes : S R g P D S’…. S’ D P g R S…. Which means, throughout the song only one swar would be vikrti, i.e., Komal Gandhar (g). But, as I have mentioned in my other blogs also that, music directors often take liberty to deviate from the set notes in a Raag to add flavour to their compositions. Here in this song also, there is a subtle use of Komal Dhaiwat (d) and Komal Nishad (n) at some places, which is otherwise not allowed in Raag Shivranjani. A good song to practice ‘Meend’, ‘Murkis’ and yes, Raag Shivranjani. Enjoy!

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.
