Sargam notations for the song : Kahin door jab din dhal jaye
Singer : Mukesh
Lyrics : Yogesh
Music : Salil Chowdhury
Movie : Anand (1971)

This song is very close to my heart. Magical composition by Sali Chowdhury, amzing lyrics by Yogesh and soulful singing of Mukesh.    Just the song that I wish to listen again and again when I am sad.

I had been trying to write the notations for this song from quite some time now.  But I would get stuck after the prelude tune which I would start with Ga for easiness.  But after the prelude I would not get the correct note of the first word “kahin” in the song.  I kept on trying and trying.  And then, today I tried something different.  I started the prelude tune with High Sa on G# flute.  That was it.  After starting the prelude of the song on high sa, I was able to come to the correct note for “kahin” which was Dha.


I really enjoy playing this song on my flute.  I have tried to jot down the prelude, interlude and music pieces in between the song as below.  Hope you will also enjoy this evergreen song on your instruments.

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.
