Raga Todi: This morning melody depicts a serene emotion with a tinge of pathos in it.

Raga Bhairav: This early-morning raga conveys a mood of quiet dignity.

Raga Malkauns: This midnight melody, lively and vivacious in character, is immensely popular in India.

Raga Kalavati: This raga, usually expounded towards midnight, conveys a mood of extreme urge.

Raga Tilak Kamod: This early-night raga is known for its bright, colourful appeal.

Raga Miyan Malhar: This night melody, conventionally associated with the rainy season, unfolds a serious, profound mood.

Side two:

Raga Bairagi: This raga is expounded in the early hours of morning. The mood is one of quiet introspection.

Raga Jaijaiwanti: This night melody conveys a romantic mood.

Raga Mishra Pilu: Essentially romantic in appeal, this raga can also lend itself to a variety of moods. It is usually associated with the third quarter of day.

Raga Shivanjani: This early-night raga evokes an atmosphere of separation and sorrow.

Raga Bhairavi: This is a morning melody. But convention has it that it can be rendered as a concluding piece in a classical recital at any hour of day and night.
