Hi Dr Balaji:

Unlike Hindustani music, Carnatic music and musicians do not give too much importance for morning, midday, and evening raagas. It is because Chennai does not have many parks or gardens where you can have open-air concerts (which is very popular in New Delhi, (eg) NDMC)

The morning raagas are Bhupalam, Bouli, Bilahari, Kedaram, Dhanyasi, and probably all the janya ragaas of Mayamalavagowla. The midday raagas are Sree, Manirangu, and Madhyamavathi. The evening raagas are Shhanmugapriyaa, kalyaani, Aananda Bhairavi, Vasantha, Naattai kurinji, and Poorvi Kalyaani.

Raagas like Thodi, Karaharapriya, Charukesi, Keeravani, and plenty of other raagas can be sung or played on all times.
