We were trying to set a “Sa” in a shruti box that everyone will follow before learning some vedic chants. At the end of the session, we got into analyzing what distinct notes were heard. One set of people said “Ni1 Sa Ri1” (as we notate it today), and another set of people said they hear “Ma1 Pa Dha1”. Well, both were right, as it is basically a tonic shift and we hear whatever we wanted to hear.

That episode did not stop there. I started listening to some same veda chants and found that “Dha2 Ni1 Sa Ri2 Ga1” were the notes I hear. Then, I thought about what these tonic shift group will conclude, and I got “Ga2 Ma1 Pa Dha2 Ni1”.

Wow.. I made a major discovery. What were the notes that were “heard” by listeners in Rig Vedic and Sama Vedic times? They heard all the notes in an octave except “Ma2 and Ni2” !

So, where did Ma2 and Ni2 come from? I still did not find the right answer.
