Raga Triveni 

Raga Triveni by Pt. Tarun Bhattacharya is a tribute to the three rivers of India. 

Pt Tarun Bhattacharya ji said, "Triveni, as the name suggests is the confluence of three different genres of raga found in the Hindustani Classical Music notes and the new raga is influenced by raga Jogeswari, raga Lalit and raga Rageshree keeping a completely original scale".

The new raga is not only a tribute to my master, Guru Pandit Ravi Shankar, on his 100th anniversary but also this is a tribute to the trinity of rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Narmada which form the lifeline and backbone of India. The rivers are symbolic of how nature supports mankind and it also aims at sensitizing Indians that it is time we take care of the rivers, stop polluting it and life for these great rivers would ensure life for the people thriving due to them. Light, wind and water are the trinities which support life and through the raga the importance of water is being emphasized.

In raga Triveni, the influence of raga Lalit brings in freshness and a new beginning, one of hope and positive thoughts in today’s time of the global pandemic. Raga Rageshree is reflected through the emotions, depth and sweetness of romanticism, an essential quality of human beings. The melancholic, devotional aspect of raga Jogeswari is also reflected in the new raga.

The general structure of raga Triveni  a.k.a Tirvan is that, it is based on raga Shree but, without the Madhyam swar. Because of the absence of Madhyam, even the raga Shree gets modified in both Aaroh & Avroh. 

Pt. V. N. Bhatkhande describes raga Triveni in the 5th volume of Kramik Pustak Maalika as emerging from the Purvi Thaat , with Vaadi Rishabh & Samvaadi Pacham.
