Deshkar is considered to be a morning raga. It has the exact same notes as Bhupali. According to the old school, Deshkar tends to remain in the upper tetrachord revolving very heavily around the Dha. Even though Ga is considered to be the samvadhi, it should not be rested upon for too long; otherwise Deshkar impinges upon Bhupali.
Raga Deshkar is similar to Raga Bhoopali but it is different in the way it is sung. The important note here is Shuddha Dhaivat, which is very strong in Deshkar. Pancham is prominent in Aalap and Aalap ends with Pancham. In Raga Deshkar, Dhaivat-Gandhar Sangati is important and Rishabh is Alp in Avroh. This Raga belongs to Bilawal Thaat. This is a Uttarang Pradhan Raga and can be expanded in Madhya and Tar Saptaks.
Deshkar is a raga which is quickly disappearing. It is being merged into Bhupali and in the process, it is loosing its identity. Deshkar is not a very common rag.
