You are very welcome Mr. Varma, and thank you for your generous words! Do you play the tabla? Do tell us about your interests in music.
Yes, I am learning to play the tabla for about two years now. I find your programmes very informative. I also like to listen to light classical music.
It is a 4 beat Tala called "Paudi" or "4 matreka Keherwa". As you know, Keherwa is 8 beats, and Paudi sounds like Keherwa, but is only 4 beats. It is used in light music (such as the Guide song) and in Gurubani recitations called Paudi. I just found this out on Youtube. :-) See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqYWXhCZ1jU
I am so grateful to you, thank you! No one was able to answer this question. Now I will try and play it.
