A Sitar is a delicate instrument and should be handled gently 'like an egg' as it is all-too-easy to break one of the gourds (tumbas) or the hollow neck, peg holes, etc.
A sitar's bridge is adjusted by moving it towrd the neck to raise the note and away from the neck to lower the note.
If the broken string went through a hole in the Sitar's neck before joining the tuning peg, as in the case with the Tarb strings, thread the string through the hole where the old string was.

 Sitar tuning tips, midi tuning tones, sitar size selection, Lesson #3 - RagaNet Issue #3
By size I mean not the overall length of the sitar but the size of the gourd and the width of the fretboard.
The width and curve of the sitar's fretboard is also important, depending on your hand size, if this is not a good fit you'll have a hard time playing fast and doing meend (producing notes by pulling the string).
Sitar with this string sometimes has a little metal latch installed on the last fret (the one closest to the bridge) so one can tuck the string onto the latch when the faster movements are anticipated.

 Guide to Buying a Sitar
The quality of the materials, the wood for the face and neck, the gourd for the body and the bone for the bridge are all important.
This is simply a crystallization of what we have learned in 30 years of importing, selling, playing and talking with professional players in India and the U.S. We have no exclusive arrangement with any maker nor a vested interest in pushing one over another.
The truth is, a cheap sitar with a top-class jawari can sound decent, and a first rate sitar with a badly done or worn jawari can sound mediocre.

 Sitar Tuning Chart by Ashwin Batish, RagaNet Sitar Lesson #4
The problem I have with this tuning in my regular approach to the sitar is that if I leave this string open it rattles like crazy and drives me crazy along with it.
New sitar students would also do well to stay away from the bass string until they have some experience under their belt.
As a matter of fact, to make sure you practice playing your sitar more than you spend time tuning it, the traditional way is to have a sitar student buy a sitar without sympathetic strings.
