The Jagjit Singh - immortal ghazal - "Bat Niklegi To Phir Dur Talak Jayegi" is sung in which raaga? Does anybody know.

Here's the link:



Many thanks

I listened to a few minutes, and I'm not sure (please anyone correct me if I'm speaking erroneously) that it would be analagous to any classical raaga, because the underlying background is of shifting chords and harmonies. The accompaniment is shifting chords to the I, IV, and V, with the structure of the song, so its a bit closer to a Western concept of a song than a raag, which keeps a fixed tonic and doesn't really have chord changes as such. But as far as the basic melodic material, its bilawal thaat or Ionian mode...standard major scale.
