Dual instrument (C&R) based perfect symmetry with bridge

This involves a number of call and response arrangements that have a symmetrical pattern and also includes a musical bridge.  With two instrument based C&R arrangements, I have not observed any symmetry around a bridge.  In other words, I have not come across a Raja composition that has a musical bridge in the center with perfectly symmetrical C&R arrangements on either sides of it.  In the previous post, there were two songs that had perfectly symmetrical but had a bridge at the end of the interlude. For the purposes of demonstration of a perfect symmetry with two instruments, we ignored the bridge at the end of the interlude.
