Raag Description: This is a very sweet and touching Raag that has a very wide public appeal. However it is a very complex Raag. There are several combinations that give flashes of various Raags such as R R G R R G m P m G m G R ; ,P R as in Chhaya Raga, G P D n G n n D P D G of Raag Alhaiya , R R m P N N S' N S' R' n D , P D m G ; m G R ,N S of Raag Des and these are intimately merged to give the overall atmosphere of Jaijaivanti.

It should be well remembered that when R G R is with Shuddha Gandhar the Swar yojna must be in Aaroh only, R g R S must be done with Komal Gandhar ie in Avroh, komal Gandhar will be taken between two Rishabhs. Otherwise Shuddha Gandhar will be taken in Avroh if not taken in between two Rishabhs eg : S’ n D P m G R S.
