Raga Katyayani is a rare raga based off of the South Indian musical system. It behaves like Sivaranjani, except that it has a komal dha instead of a Suddha Dha. The one komal dha will give this raga its pathos-filled characteristic. One must be careful to avoid excessive emphasis on Pa, for this will make this raga sound like Gunakri or Jogiya of the Bhairava thāt.
