Nice work Jimi. I will certainly try this. This was the most popular song in those days and was leading the chart. The song is in A Minor. But being a 'Aelion Mode' based song, there will be apparent features of Major scale in some places. These are quite tricky and the musicians take advantage of this feature..... Sathya
U are welcome Sathya.. This is not the first instance when a song is going from major to minor scale or vice versa.

One more example.. in Beatles band song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" the song starts in Amin in the verse and shift to Amaj in the bridge.
Both these songs came before "Rakkamma".
'Major to Minor' or 'Minor to Major' transitions changes the mood in a song. Amaj and Amin have the same tonic i.e 'A'
Nice information Jimi. Thanks for your efforts. By the way, O Mere Dil Ke Chain is one of my favorite...... Sathya
