Was listing to a Subhankar Banerjee composition identified as Anaghat. Anyone have any idea what this is?

Ah, I was spelling it wrong, romanization of hindi words gets me every time. While we're at it? I know padhant is recitation of bols but do you have a correct pronunciation? Long "a" or short? Thanks!

I see the question has been answered, but this tidbit might be informative: the practice seems to derive from dhrupad:

From "Dhrupad: Tradition and Performance in Indian Music
By Ritwik Sanyal, Richard Widdess" (online google books preview).

I'm not sure if this is a related phenomena, but I've gone to concerts before and I generally try to count the tal, but it occasionally occurs that (say) the sitarist and tablajee seem to deliberately play around with the beat as if to throw the other one off, and they suddenly speed up a bit, and then slow down a bit, and then play off-beat a bit, and while I doubt they throw each other off the tal, they invariably manage to screw up my counting!

Thanks, for the response. I think that many of us have seen and heard them before, however I meant can anyone post a transcription of one. Even a simple one, so that we can see the relation to the matras, beats, etc.

Thanks
