    Lyrics - http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~navin/india/songs/isongs/12/1228.html
  • Video -
  • Tempo - 250 bpm
  • Comments - Obviously 250 is very fast. The song would sound very awkward if it followed every beat.  Instead, the song moves much closer to the vibhag than the matra.  Therefore it resembles a slightly staggered or syncopated 4/4 time.  Nevertheless the percussion hammers out a clear, fast 14 matra XDhaa Ti Ta | 2Dhaa Dhaa Ti Ta | 0Taa Ti Ta | 3Naa Naa Dhi Ta.

    Lyrics - http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~navin/india/songs/isongs/5/572.html
  • Video -
  • Tempo - 212 bpm
  • Comments - This is a slow song, but like many others of the filmi deepchandi class, the actual beats per min. is really quite fast. This apparent contradiction works because there is a strong pulse on the beginning of each vibhag, while there is a definite understatement in the treatment of the intermediate beats.  Poor original quality of the original material coupled with the passage of the years, makes a definitive statement about the actual bols difficult, however the strong pulse on the 11th and 13th matra makes it clear that anything in the moghuli class of prakars will work.
