Comments - This is actually as good of Deshkar as I have ever seen; however I suspect that this is an accident. The composition clearly shows that the music director was not thinking in terms of Bhupali / Deshkar but was instead thinking along the line of the South Indian Mohanam
*Ham Tum Se Na Kuchh Kah Paaye, Tum Ham Se Na Kuchh Kah Paaaye
Comments - This is generally a pretty good example of Bhupali. However about half-way through the song the musical interludes begin to significantly diverge from Bhupali. About the same time, an un-bhupali-ish usage of the Shuddha Nishad creeps into the song.
Comments - bhajan by Jagjit Singh. The is generally a very good example of Bhupali. There are very slight traces of Shuddha Madhyam and Shuddha Nishad. However these are very fleeting and well within the bounds of contemporary light interpretations of rags. All in all, this is a very good example of contemporary approaches to rag Bhupali. The purists may cringe, but this is the direction that this rag is taking.
Comments - It starts of bhupali-ish, but after the first interlude it goes of into other stuff. The bottom line is that this might be a nice song, but it would not be a song that you would use to get a handle on Bhupali.
Comments - It has been suggested that this is actually Deshakar. However there is such a muddle concerning the supposed distinctions between Deshkar and Bhupali that we really are not in any position to say anything here. Readers are advised to consider this and make their own decisions in this matter.
