Very informative

This application is very informative.
I always use it even though I sing and teach Hindustani Classical music, this app is useful for me.
Thank you.

Helpful app

For learners, composers this app is too helpful
This app made me to learn about many new raagas
In the section search by swaras I suggest an improvement
If I type a formate or a group of swaras let it show the perfect match instead of showing all possible ragas

If I select SM2GPN2S
It shows srgmpdns all permutations and combination including the selection

Let it show the same pattern if such raga exits
Can it be possible to modify the app please
