Song in Raga BHAIRAVI(of hindustani music) 
by K L SAIGAL, the great!!
Raga Bhairavi is an ancient raga, originating about 1500 years ago. It is the main raga of Bhairavi Thaat. It is generally the final piece in a performance and as such an early morning raga.
Bhairavi is also called an evergreen raga, since there are innumerable ways to perform the raga. Most of the artists add vivadis (grace notes), to embellish the flavor of the raga. Most of the famous songs sung by KL Saigal are in this raga.
Raga Bhairavi belongs to Bhairavi Thaat. It is a late morning Raga, and traditionally is the last raga performed at a session. 

Moods: Devotion, love, separation, reunion, joy, sarcasm, satire, sadness, nostalgia.
