The Western Scales equivalent of Classical Indian Ragas

A Western Scale is quite different from an Indian Raga. Scale is about Notes, Raga is a lot more than just its notes. Raga is about the order in which you play the notes, the rules of how to play them, the relative position with respect to fundamental frequency and so on. See the difference between Western Scales and Indian Ragas.
