Flipping through the sitar samples in EastWest Ra, I noticed it had a sample of what it calls 'drop fx'. it basically sounds as though someone plucks a string and then twists the tuning peg to detune it....only thing I could find on this was 'bindu' in this book

What I want to know is if this is actually what is being done, or is it simple a slide/bend downward rather than upward?

more likely a reverse meend isn't it?
Pull the meend but only strike the string when you reach the pulled note and then slide down to the fretted note.
