Bindumalini is one of the most fantastic classical raagas I had heard.By wish of dad even I am named Bindumalini:)

enta muddo(Raag Bindumalini)

Bindumalini is an ubhaya vakra shadava janya raga with vakra sancharas in both Arohi and Avarohi, derived from the 16th mela Chakravakom. Dha is deleted in the arohana and Ma in the avarohana. Eka svara vakra raga Ga being the vakra svara in the arohana and Ni in the avarohana. An upanga raga in which Ga and Ni are amsa svaras. A raga that can be sung always and admits of tristhayi svara sancharas. An auspicious minor raga. Bindumalni is one of the ragas that came into prominance through the compositions of Thyagaraja.
