Introduction


We all know that a raga is a combination of a set of swaras. And since there are only 16 swarasthanas and there are hundreds of ragas, the same swaras or sequence of swaras can be featured in different ragas.

For example, the pentatonic ragas, Hamsadwani and Mohanam have just one note difference, S R2 G3 P, being their common notes. If one were to draw an intersection of ragas Mohanam and Hamsadwani, the intersection would obviously feature these four notes.

This quiz is our imagination of making two ragas intersect and see what those notes / phrases are :) We have provided audio clips which contain phrases that can occur in at least a couple of ragas. Rasikas have to match the audio clips with the raga pairs provided in the table. Not very clear??

Listen to the first clip (sample clip) in the tabular column below.

This phrase could occur in both the ragas Mayamalavagowlai and Lalitha, right? Therefore, the sample clip needs to be matched with Mayamalavagowlai-Lalitha pair. Got it?

So go ahead and match the audio clips with the correct raga pairs! All the best and have lots of fun with it!!
