Tilwada is a variant of tintal. The number of beats, the vibhag structure, the clapping, waving, all are identical to tintal. Even the bols of the theka are so similar that it could be declared a prakar rather than a separate tal. However, we will bow to common usage and consider tilwada to be a distinct tal.
The structure of tilawada is shown below:
