Thumak Chalat is the Bhajan that paints the picture of the toddler Sri Ram, just learning to walk. This song of Tulasidas is soaked in 'Vatsalya Bhava' describing affection. The Bhajan is set to Taal Dadra, a six beat rhythm cycle. This course maps the song to the Swaras, to facilitate systematic learning and clarity. This is one of the Bhajans popularised by Pt. D.V. Paluskar. You must have listened to the version of this song sung by Lata Mangeshkar.
