Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty, whose parents were born in Bangladesh and moved to Kolkata during the partition, composed the raag to celebrate India-Bangladesh friendship 

World renowned classical vocalist Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty dedicated a new raag "Maitree," on the occasion of Bangabandhu's birth centenary, in a bid to celebrate the longstanding friendship between India and Bangladesh.

Three new compositions, written in Sanskrit, Hindi and Bangla, will be unveiled.

Philosopher Dr Arindam Chakraborti has composed the Sanskrit lyrics. The Hindi portion is composed by Dr Susmita Basu Majumder, and the Bengali song is penned by Ajoy's student and prominent composer Anal Chatterjee.

Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty, whose parents were born in Bangladesh and moved to Kolkata during the partition, has composed all the three songs.

The golden jubilee of the hard-won independence of Bangladesh from Pakistan and the Father of Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's birth centenary have been mentioned in the three compositions.

A recipient of Padma Bhushan award, Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty revealed the new raag 'Maitree' in a video, sent his greetings to  both the Prime Ministers of Bangladesh and India, and announced that he would perform his new composition to mark the golden jubilee of Bangladesh's independence.
