WJKK, WJKF. I have a couple or so questions about the structure and style of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. 1. I was listening to a sehaj paath recently, and the giani ji was reciting Gurbani almost as if he were singing it, i.e. it had a melody. It was beautiful to hear. Is there an "official" name given to this style of doing paath? Is it a raag or something similar? When us non-Granthi individuals recite our baaniya, it's - in most cases - done in a style of reading something aloud in a constant almost monotonous manner, whereas what I heard during the sehaj paath was on a different level. As I said, can that way of reciting Gurbani be taught, or is it simply an individual flourish? 2. It's agreed that Guru Granth Sahib Ji has 1430 angs. So based on this standardised numbering system, where exactly does a) Sukhmani Sahib, and b) Rehraas Sahib begin? Thanks in advance.
