^ that's indian classical notation.
n is 'ni'.
n1, n2, n3 are all variations of 'ni' like you have sharp and flat variations on western notes (D, D sharp, D flat).

Thats how i hv understood, someone pls correct me if i am wrong.
n3,i guess to be the 'B' note.

7. actually tht link may be a bit confusing since it give carnatic & hindustani separately - wil try n post both together later

Again, great post, but still according, to that image ambush attached, there are some 4-5 B's there.

How do i know which B is n3???

Similarly, there were other notations too, like r2, etc.

9. s = sa = C
r1 = ri 1 = C#
r2 = ri 2 = D
g2 = ga 2 = D#
g3 = ga 3 = E
m1 = ma 1 = F
m2 = ma 2 = F#
p = pa = G
d1 = da 1 = G#
d2 = da 2 = A
n2 = ni 2 = A#
n3 = ni 3 = B
S = sa = C
doent matter which B note u play just play it in one octave
just play in any one string for starters
and you need to learn some bigginer theory
