Ik na ik din ye kahani banegi

Sargam-ik-na-ik-din-ye-kahani

Singer : Mohammad rafi,
Lyricist : Anand Bakshi,
Music Director : Laxmikant Pyarelal,
Movie : Gora Aur Kala (1972)

Flute used for notations : A#

This song includes all the ‘Vikrit Swars’, e.g., komal re, ga, dha, ni and Tivr Ma.  Therefore, this song appears to be of a raag that generates either from Bhairavi or Todi Thaat.  I’m not sure though.  A melodious song, but a difficult one if you are not good at playing Komal swars on flute.  However, practice can make you perfect.

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.
