    Sat Siri Akal Ji just wanted to know how to differentiate rag sorath from rag desh????? Because the swaras are all the same???? And how is the usage of Gandhar in this rag what does it mean to use Gandhar as a meend???

      Sat Sri Akal ji
      I am so sorry for not replying to your message. The reason is that Gurpreet Kaur my wife who happened to be the source of all the material on this site is no more in this world. She left this world on 12th Sept 2016. She was diagnosed with a Brian Tumour in the month of April 2015 and left us all after facing the illness bravely. We now have her in her singing of so many Gurbani Shabads. Sorry again I am unable to answer to your query.

    Sat siri akal ji really shocking to learn that maam has left her physical body
    she was and will continue to remain as the living inspiration in each of the listeners hearts. I am deeply touched by the divine peace in her voice when she sings gurbani so well may guru bless her soul and may through her singing millions continue to receive akal purakhs blessings. Guruji bless you and the entire family to accept the hukam
    bhul chuk maaf my humble and sincere prayers for the saintly soul.
