The name and number of Melakartha raga is systematically defined by Katapayadhi Sankya method. The letters Ka, Ta, Pa, Ya, etc are assigned numeric numbers. From the first two characters of each melam, and mapping it to the number corresponding to the character, the mela raga's number is identified. For example, the raga "Dheera Shankarabaranam" has Dhe and Ra as its first characters, the map to 9 and 2. By juxtaposing the 2nd character's number with the 1st one we get 29, which is the mela kartha number of the raga. Ragas like Chakravagham are represented with Cha and Ka (6 and 1, thereby 16).
