    2. Listened to the clip running for 14 minutes. There is one economics law called 'law of diminishing utility" you take one orange your satisfaction is 25% then next one next one and you reach a point and the saturation point your satisfaction is NIL.
      In respect of KALYANI you do not reach the saturation point. The more the number of times you listen the more you like. The reason is what you described the beautiful swarams and its order rather pattern especially the Nishattham . I am reminded of
      Shakespeare"s CLEOPATRA he said "Age cannot wither her nor custom stale her infinite variety" Tis applies to Kalyani

      Thanks for the excellent rendtion Why not touching the Cine Music not even one example ? With best wishes
