General discussion of Kaligada

Kalingada and Bhairav are so similar that it is difficult to make a distinction even in classical situations.  The inherently light treatment of the film song makes it pointless to justify a distinction.   Therefore film songs in Kalingada are categorized under the more popular heading of Bharav.
