  1. There is some kind of bug in few lessons of raag durga. Actually the Guru voice/sur and the display sur are different, based on that it gets very confusing to sing along, because right approach is to follow the voice, but then riyaz feedback system displays poor everytime because of not following the displayed swaras. Just re check lessons of raag durga like pakad, chalan and you can see yourselves
