It is a very pretty, somewhat plaintive, raga. It portrays deep yearning mixed with a grounding sense of resignation. Compared with its cousin, Raag Darbari, it has a distinctly feminine quality to it. It needs to be treated with a light touch and uses predominantly light ornamentation. This raga is sung in the late morning hours, up to noon or so.
