Bandish or song-text is an important component of musical material and it has a distinct role in music making of North Indian ( Hindustani) classical music. To create  a bandish, one has to have sound knowledge about - swar,lay,raag,taal,form,interest in literature, affinity towards words,ability to create novelty in the context of tradition , independent style, etc., In addition,other things- theme and placement of the words in the song- text according to the name and time of the raag,complementry themes in the vilambit and drut compositions in the same raag make the musical and emotional content of the raag more appealing.
