Raag Bhairavi (Hindi: भैरवी) (Urdu: بھیرویں‎) (Sindhi راڳ ڀيروي ) is a Hindustani Classical heptatonic (Sampurna) Raag of Bhairavi Thaat. Traditionally it is a morning raga. In modern times, typically in Khyal Gayaki, it is usually performed as the concluding (finale) piece in concerts. It is the defining raga of its own Thaat. However, Carnatic music has a Bhairavi raga which is quite different from the Hindustani raga.

Ananta is a Sanskrit term which means 'endless' or 'limitless', also means 'eternal' or 'infinite', in other words, it also means infinitude or an unending expansion or without limit. It is one of the many names of Lord Vishnu.Ananta is the Shesha-naga, the celestial snake, on which Lord Vishnu reclines.The painting shows Vishnu on the Serpent Ananta with the Goddess Lakshmi and Brahma Ji emerging from his navel
