    " target="new">http://tfmpage.com/forum/ros.html </a>
    This thread is to discuss the base-Raagam (carnatic/hindhustani) behind hindhi songs.

    Based on the discussions we can build a raagam database for Hindhi songs.


    Lists on the web:

    RaajaG: rt ! Bhimplas and Abheri are the same.
    The link lists equivalent ragas in the
    Carnatic and Hindusthani traditions.

    I believe the old classic "prabhu tErO naam" from Hum Dono and
    the recent "kismat se tum humko milE hO" from Pukar are also in Bhim Palasi.

    Nalini,'Allah tero naam' starts in 'Gaud Sarang' and moves to Hari Kambhoji (kamaj thaat) in the charanam (reminding me of 'DheerE DheerE machal Aye dil-e-bequaraar' here ) ,ends with traversing the Karaharapriya notes and hence the resemblance to Abheri here. 'yeh zindagi usi ki hai' is predominantly in Bhimplasi with d1 also in the pallavi.
    'nainOn mE badhraa chhaayE ' is a blatant lift by Madan Mohan from a Telugu Rajeswara Rao composition sung by S.Janaki. I will get back with the pallavi of the song. The telugu song sounds carnatic-ish and the Hindi version has been cleverly 'Hindi-ised'.

    'Thoo mEra chaand main thEri chaandni' from Dillagi and 'Aaj puraani raahOn sE kOyee mujhE aawaaz na dE' (aadmi), both by Naushad have more than a generous sprinkling of Abheri.

    I was referring to the song "prabhu tErO naam, jo dhyaye phal paaye sukh laaye tErO naam". Come to think of it, even this one doesn't sound like Bhimpalasi to me now. I hastily thought it was so, based on a couple of lines in the anthara. It sounds more like dhani to me. What do you think? Enjoyed your informative post. Didn't realise
    "allah tErO naam" has sprinkles of so many ragas.

    Nalini, nice to exchange ideas with you again. It is a long time since anybody contributed to the 'Old Hindi songs' thread.

    'Prabhu terO naam'!!! I had almost forgotten the song. Raag Dhani ....first time I have heard the name )) Do you have a link to the song ?

    About 'Allah...', Jaidev was impressive till he got stuck in the Ghazal mould.
