Raga having links with Hindustani.Janya of 8th according to some,and 10th as per some other texts.Usage of virtually all swaras.Evoke bhakthi rasa,usually sung at the second part of the concert.There are plenty of bhajans.Favourite of light music directors.Two such songs comes to mind,Ilayaraja?s ?enna satham inta neram?(see how it starts with all komal swaras?pdmpgrs)and ?valai osai?.

Sindhu bairavi is my favourite ragam. In my humble opinion, it is not to be confused with Hindusthani bairavi. ..in which there are quite a few nice hindi film songs. but the only Sindhubairavi film song is in Anuradaha ( music director Pandi Ravishankar). If I am not mistaken, there is no kruthi in this ragam by Thyagaraja Swami. .'Venkatachala nilayam' is not by Purandhara dasa according to some learned critics. MS ofcourse, loved this ragam along with Chenchurutti. ( again, is there any kruthi by Thayagaraja in Chenchurutti?) ... Alatthoor brothers have sung Chandrasekara Eesaa, in Sindhubairavi.
I have given a list of nice songs in Sindhubairavi in

varsha ji-> Thank you. Even Parikkar is not convincing. Pardon my impudence . Just sharing my perception of the difference between HM Bairavi and CM Sindhubairavi. . The song Engum Nirainthaye is most likely to be Hindusthani Bairavi.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eSvNrlS4LM
Sindhu Bairavi ( Anuradaha Saware) dwells mostly in upper reaches and that it is its characteristic feature.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3Bk5lpSYis
(surprising that it is almost the ONLY sindhubairavi song in recent hm film music)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When we hum the song. third stanza of MS classic 'Maalaip pozhuthinile'
beginning with an one second background nectar and stanza 'chandhiran venpurum un mukatthil chanchalam thondruvathen' . ,it is almost ready to go into Bairavi(hm) but the very next line 'munthaoipitavikali' takes us to usual sindhubairavi.
chandhiran venburum un mukatthil , sanchalam thondruvathaen?
sontham illaathavalo ? puthithaay thodarnthidum uRvo?

(ஸிந்துபைரவி )
சந்திரன் வெண்புறும் உன் முகத்தில் ,
சஞ்சலம் தோன்றுவதேன் ?
சொந்தம் இல்லாதவளோ ? புதிதாய்
தொடர்ந்திடும் உறவோ?

( if only , she had gone into the lower notes there! that would have taken us into bliss of bairavi(hm).
but she immediately goes into higher notes
'munthaip piravikaLil unai Naan muraiyinil maNanthen!
முந்தைப் பிறவிகளில் உன்னை நான் , முறையினில் மணந்தேன்!
sticks to charactreristic Sindhubairavi.

(this record was given in 1940,
https://sites.google.com/site/homage2ms ... huthinilae
MS rendering of Itthani NaaL aana pinnum ' by Kalki on Gandhiji is Bairavi (hm) See how it lingers so very poignantly in the lower notes of the ragam. ( 'chinnanjiru madhalaiyarin')
https://sites.google.com/site/homage2ms ... nna-pinnum

சின்னச்சிறு மதலையரின்
சிரிப்பினிலே மலர்ந்திடுவார்
( note the divine rendering by MS here!)
சின்னச்சிறு மதலையரின்
சிரிப்பினிலே மலர்ந்திடுவார்
கன்னியர்கள்,அன்னையர்தம்
கண்ணீரில் கரைந்திடுவார்
-------------------------------------
chinnanchirRu mathalaiyarin , chirippinile malarnthiduvaar
kanniyarkal, annaiyartham kaNNeeril karainthiduvaar.

This is , if Sindhubairavi, a very special creation by S.V.VENKATARAMAN. very sublime.. all in lower notes .
===========================================================================
So also is MS 'Mai Nir guniya' (bairavi (hm).
https://sites.google.com/site/homage2ms ... -guna-nahi
Note how she finishes the song! Divine!
Even Rajarathnam Pillai in his famous thiruppokazh record, dwells in classic Sindhubairavu only.

If my understanding of the ragams is absolutely wrong, kindly correct me. Regards

There were a total of 24 songs in Sakuntalai. A couple of songs were longer than usual and the gramophone company had to issue special large sized records for them..
Lakshman ji, Can you kindly give the complete list of songs and if possible links to mp3? Are we losing about a dozen gems of MS?

A wonderful song in Sindhubairavi.
