=============================================

Comments/Appreciation:

The song has detailed, relaxed sancharis around rishabha and gandharam.

Specifically the phrase: "GRNR" and the

expansion: gmpd ns | rgr – s nd pm || gmpd- nd | pmg- d pmgr || snsr

are catchy. The repetitive use of these phrases (esp the slow ones) fit directly into alaapana. Repetitive use of sancharis is also a feature of Swati Tirunal (also see Janani Maamava in Bhairavi, eg: anupallavi)

So is the edduppu and its exploitation at different areas. eg: rg rs S ; S; - sn dp P ; P ; -

gr rs S ; S ; - nr s S , S ; - r r rs S ; S ; -

Alliterations abound: "nanda nandana"
