On selecting the thaalam if the display does not change to the new thaalam click OK above.

   Click for 2 Kalai (except chaapus)

Generate the 7 thaalams used in Alankaarams, modern Roopakam, Khanda Ekam and two Chaapu thaalams.

(Buttons with red border indicate Clap/Beat. White button is a wave if it is only one between 2 red border buttons otherwise white buttons indicate count. In the case of Misra Chaapu the 'kriya' for the first 2 red border buttons is often shown with reverse palm (wave), but beat sounds have been given as otherwise there will be silence for the entire 1.5 aksharam)

2 Kalai is for slow tempo compositions, where each 'kriya' is done twice (ex. Kamalaambaam Bjajare). The second count or clap will appear in blue. It is not valid for Chaapu Thaalams

Will work with Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer Ver 10 and Android Tablets. While trying this online if you find the beats uneven, you can download containing 6 files tal9.htm,mrange2.js, tal1h.mp3,tal2h.mp3,tal3h.mp3,tal4h.mp3. Unzip and save the files in a single folder and you can run tal9.htm offline by double clicking on it. (For older Android tablets, open the browser and enter the path - like file://sdcard/mnt....)
