Bandish of a given Raga

 

Bandish are the most dominating notes of a given raga. Each raga has its own bandish. Whenever a music director composes a song based upon a given raga, he makes sure that he uses the bandish of that raga. This is the precise reason why two songs composed on the same raga sound similar. In a way, bandish is a common factor within all the tunes composed on a given raga. A song based on a given raga can be composed in any one of 3 octaves. This sometimes makes it difficult to identify the raga of the song, although the progression of notes follows the same rules of raga in any octave. Once you memorize the bandish of ragas,  you will be able to identify the raga of another  tune that is based on same raga. Actually, to understand the bandish of any raga, it is better to listen and grasp the instrumental classical music played on a musical instrument. Since musical instruments do not utter words, the listener can concentrate and grasp the raga very accurately after repeatedly listening to the notes of the tune. Of course, if you are very well versed in classical music, then you can easily recognize a raga with ease even if you are listening to a vocal piece.

Raga Meigh Information

This is a loved raga by many people. This raga is heard in the monsoon season when thunderbolts rock the sky and rain fall on the ground. Even though on occasion, it rains in  the autumn and winter seasons, the same effect of the rain is not the same. Raga Meigh,  thus, was considered a janak raga. Raga Meigh and a very similar raga, Raga Malhar, have  very similar ecstatic properties. According to the janak ragas, Raga Dipak came to burn  and enflame people during the summer. When the summer (June-early July) season ended, the  monsoon season started and Raga Meigh extinguished the flames and fire caused by Raga  Dipak. It is truly the raga to extinguish fires of the heart.

Songs of Raga Meigh:
1. Kahan Se Aye Badra
    Film - Chashme Buddoor
2. Konpalen Phir Fut Ayi
    Ghazal Mehdi Hassan
3. Mahefil Men Baar Baar Kisi Par Nazar Gai
    Ghazal Ghulam Ali
