The composition composed in Adi with the emphasis on its respective beats COULD ALSO BE SUNG in Khanda-jhampe or vice-versa.

So, in deciding the taala, I guess the composer chooses a taala based on where the emphasis is, but even here there is no strict rule that the emphasis should always decide the taala.

When they are able to do such difficult acrobatics of rhythm I don’t think it is difficult to sing a composition in a different Tala than which it is set.
