'munnuraavaNa' is a famous Tyagaraja Krithi set on thodi raagam and Misra Jhampa talam. In this krithi, Tyagaraja Swamigal praises Lord Rama. Todi, the crown jewel of carnatic music, is a raga of infinite possibilities, It's a tough raaga to elaborate and get the nuances right and should be handled after mastering atleast 5 krithis in this thodi raagam.
People also say that thodi raga is a good remedy for headache,cold & anxiety.

We shall hear the rarely heard Tyagaraja krithi 'munnu ravana bada'
