This raag should be sung at dusk, transition from the afternoon to the evening Thus its also known as a Sandhiprakash Raga. It is hard to classify the emotional character of this raga as it varies from the transition of one note to another. The sobriety of its scale makes it very emotional in character. It is embellished with the raudra and bhayanaka or the wrathful and the fearsome while using the dhaivat, madhyam and the rishabh but it also contains the karunakara or compassionate characteristic while using the nishadh. Every transition in this raga captures a different rasa or emotion.
