Chaturang :

The rich array of forms has one which tries to pack in all the attractive features. Known as chaturanga (literally meaning 'four aspects', though folk-etymology would figuratively describe it as 'four colours'), it has the sthayi and antara couched in meaningful words to be followed by two parts, one of which consists of sitar/drum sounds and the other of the shorter names of the musical notes. It can be seen that khayalnuma, tarana, trivat, ras, and chaturanga have one feature in common -the use of meaningless sound-syllables in place of words.
