Following the chorus, Partha Protim Ray came with the song ‘Joraye achhe badha’. Shankori Saha sang ‘Bolo bolo kobe tomar’ and Johirul Haque Khan came on the stage and recited the ‘Khaya Kabya’. Besides the younger artistes, noted singers of the country also attended in the soiree. Among them, Iffat Ara Dewan sang ‘Dhay jeno mor sakol bhalobasa’.
