Sucharitra is the 67th raga on the Melakarta Scale. It is called Santana Manjari in the Dikshithar school.
It is vivadi raga with two sets of notes which are very close together and hence rather a difficult one to sing. Muthuswami Dikshithar has composed Santana Manjari in this rage and Koteeswara Iyer, who has composed in all the 72 Melakarta ragas, has composed Velum Mayilume.
Note : The 12 notes in the octave are named as below. Please note that C is used as Sa for the sake of simplicity as the scale is relative in Carnatic Music. Also note that the scales paint only a superficial picture of the raga as the gamakas(ornamentations) are a very important part of a raga.
