    There are a number of varishas like this which helps a carnatic music student to train his voice and develop a positive background for higher studies thus making him able to learn carnatic music. Same is the case with instrumental music also. The only difference is that, in instrumental music instead of articulating the sound the training is being given in familiarizing with the instrument and learning the technical aspects of using it.
    Once a carnatic music student completes learning varishas, the next step is Geethams or small and simple songs in various ragas. Most often the basic geethams are in simple ragas like malahari, mohanam etc..

    Lets now learn a geetham the geetham is set in Raga Mohanam
