Whatever the duration of this “rise of swara” is, scientific researchers have also found that there is a correspondence or connection between the nostrils and brain hemispheres.
Thus by ascertaining which Swara is rising, one can ascertain the dominant hemisphere and do activities that fall under that hemisphere's function so as to go along with the flow of the current.
Swara shastra also gives various breathing techniques and meditations for each element (Panchabhutas) as related to the Chakras and a wealth of much more varied and interesting information.

 Grahabedam and Symmetries
It should be remembered that the absolute pitch of the swaras continue to be the same; it is only because of the shifting of the origin of the scale (the Sa) that a different raga is produced.
The presence of a swara sthana is denoted by a one in the corresponding digit and the absence by a zero.
This means that the swara steps in the lower portion of the raga in the arohanam are similar to the swara steps in the upper portion in the avarohanam, or these ragas employ a similar swara step structure in the arohanam and avarohanam.

A Swara can call that spilled blood together through the soil and give it form, creating a pool, a river, a mass of tentacles, or a variety of other things.

 [Alternatives] : Pakistani Girls Forced to Settle Men's Disputes
Known as swara, the custom calls for a girl to be given away in marriage to an aggrieved family as part of settlement for murder perpetrated by one of her relatives.
The top court in the North West Frontier Province declared swara illegal in 2000 but the custom is still prevalent in the semi-autonomous tribal regions where Pakistani law seldom applies and where jirgas, or councils of tribal elders, settle disputes the old way.
But the tribesmen who favour swara argue that it averts bloodshed between Pashtun tribes who are known for their ferocity and obligation of revenge, or ’badal’, for any insult to individuals or the tribe.

 General Observation
In the Sushumna, the Swara flows only when it changes, either in its natural course or in certain other conditions to be afterwards mentioned.
In a fever, the Yogi keeps his Chandra Swara going, and brings the Apas or Water Tattwa in course, so the fever is all over in a very short time.
If the wrong Swara is at the commencement of the day the wrong Swara arises, the Lunar for the Solar or vica versa, one may expect something wrong.
