Two Jhaptal Kaidas I am most grateful to have learned from venerable tabla master Taalyogi Pt Suresh Talwalkar.

Jhaptal: a ten beat rhythmic cycle in North Indian classical music.
Kaida: a theme-and-variation form of tabla composition, ending in a tihai (rhythmic pattern that repeats 3 times, ending on the downbeat of the cycle).

Tabla parts are doubled, hence a bit flammy at times.
