Greetings,
I was trying to figure out the numbering of seven notes and comparing them to the hindustani notes. Example Sa is Sa, R1= komal Re, R2= shuddha Re, R3= komal Ga, G1= shuddha Re, G2= komal Ga,
G3= shuddha Ga Etc. In the first carnatic mela I came across Raga Kanakaangi. S, R1, G1, M1, P, D1, N1, S
When I compared R1 and G1 I had noticed those notes to be Komal Re and Shuddha Re and the same with D1 and N1. These are notes that follow one another so I get
S,r,R,m,P,d,D,S is this correct? What am I not understanding? Help please!
Thank You

Nothing, you got it just right. The Carnatic melakarta system allows such structures but it is mostly theoritical and for the sake of completeness, the ragas with these swaras are to my knowledge mostly rare and hardly ever preformed.

I may be wrong though so someone with better experience of Carnatic music please chime in.

Now this is funny!

I was having a talk with dad and he was discussing Kanakaangi with me.
You have it all rite Stuti.
As Jaan correctly pointed out...the Carnatic music offers such compositions and variations.

Ustad Rais Khansaab has definitely played this raag. Unfortunately...no records exist. Dad had heard it since he was his gurubhai. (disciple of the same teacher, lucky!).

Before a month and a half Stuti...I and my wife were pondering over what name to call my unborn child.
We did not know if the baby would be a boy or a girl.

It was pre decided by us.
If it wud be a boy, we wud call him "Kanakaang" (Meaning one with a body as beautiful as gold/male)
And "Kanakaangi" if girl.

I had a baby boy, unfortunately, since most of my folks here beleive in atrology, I am not permitted no use a name beginning with "K".

Regards.
Bob.
