jati or jathi pronounced with a small "a" are sollukettu used to count rhythmic patterns. sequences of adavus or korvais set to mridangam solukettu pattern is a Jati.
Eg: dhimita dhimita dhimi, dhimikita kitatom

Jaati or jaathi pronounced by two a's is derived out of the word "jaadhi" meaning sects or classification. Jaathi is used to calculate the Akshara in a tala. "Lagu" part of a tala depends on this Jaathi and its counts (Aksharas) vary according to the Jaathi. In music 5 jaatis are classified on the basis of their "lagu"

Dhrutam means fast. It is also spelled as Duritam
