    ^ 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.

    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.

    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

    use google
