It is Varali but I don't know the reason.

the character of raga varali can be browsed at many music sites. but there is a way to teach ragam varali too. usually the guru teaches a mangalam immediately after teaching varali and then continue the teaching session. i dont know the reasons exactly. but it is said that this raga spoils the student-teacher relationship.
