Raag Dhurpat Nut Bilawali originates from Bilawal thaat. Ma is the wadi note of this raag.

In purwang it resembles raag nut and a bit of raag gond.

In Amrohi it resembles Bilawal. It is very important to keep on stressing on Ma, because it resembles Bilawal therefore it becomes important to keep on revealing Ma over and over again.

The harmony of Re and Dha leaves pleasant music effect to the listeners.

Raag Maloha:

Raag maloha is the khado-Sampuran raag of Bilawal thaat. In Arohi of this raag dha is not allowed whereas the Amrohi of this raag is sumpuran in fact this raag has been made with the combination of raag Kamod and raag Kidara. The time to sing this raag is the first part of the night. It has been mentioned in the previous articles that stress remains on Sa-Ma- and Pa in Kidara but in Maloha not much stress is given to these notes.

when it is sung in middle octave with fast rhythm it feels great to the listeners.

In this raag sa is wadi note and pa is sumwadi note. If this raag is sung with the harmony of Ne and Sa it separates this raag from Kidara.


(low octave ma-pa-ne)


(high octave pa-ne-sa)


(high octave sa)-ne-dha-pa-ma-ga-ma-re-sa

Chaal of Maloha:

The second name of Bilawal thaat is shankra Bharan and Raag Bilawal evolves from this thaat. According to one school of thought ‘Sa’ is the wadi note of Raag Bilawal and according to second school of thought Dha is the wadi note. However these both theories are considered to be appropriate.

Raag Bilawal is Sampuran Raag, in it’s Arohi Ma must not be used frequently but with less stress. This is the warwang raag (which means stress remains on second part of octave). The time to sing this raag is morning therefore it is also called Subha Ka Kalyan (Kalyan of morning). In Bilawal note Ga is weak and this factor isolates it from kalyan. The main difference between these two Raags is that of Ma.

In this Raag the sangat or the harmony of Dha and Ma looks marvelous in combination. Usually in raag bilawal ma is played as vikar note (note played in sequence).

This is a warwang raag therefore the complete picture reveals in the second part of octave. There are many kinds of Bilawal but we would mention here the prevailing kind and style of bilawal.





The chaal of sud Bilawal is as under:-

Sa-Re-Sa, Ga-Ma-Ga-Re-Sa, Ne-Dha-Ne-Dha-Sa, Sa-Re-Ga, Pa-Dha-Pa-Ma-Ga-Re, Ga-Ma-Ga-Re-Sa.

Sa-Re-Ga-Ma-Pa, Ga-Ma-Re-Ga-Pa, Dha-Dha-Ga-Ma, Dha-Pa-Ga-Ma, Ma-Re, Ga-Ma-Pa, Ne -Ga-Re-Sa

Ne-Ne-Dha-Pa-Dha-Pa, Ne-Dha-Pa,Dha-Ma-Ga-Ma-Pa-Ma-Ga-Ma-Re-Sa-Ga-Ma-Pa-Ma-Ga-Re-Sa.

This raag is very light and can easily be learnt if the students pay attention to the chaal mentioned above.
