Jhaptaal (Zaptaal)

is a 10beat cycle and build out of 2+3+2+3. There is clearly the middle at beat 6, and the two parts are almost the same. So we might start to feel it as 2×5. Western musicians might also regard it is switching between 2/4 and 3/4, but maybe it is better to feel the whole thing as a 10beat cycle.:
