#### Rupaka Talam- Anga and Talalipi

Anga of Rupaka Talam with Talalipi of all Jatis

The Rupaka Talam of the South Indian Tala System has only 2 angas- the Dhrutam which has 2 beats (symbolised by a 0) and a laghu which has variable beats according to the jati (symbolised by l).

Hence in talalipi, the symbol of Rupaka talam is 0l
