Another Loss, Jagjit Singh

There would not be any one in India who would have not enjoyed the gazals of Jagjit Singh. His sound and worlds touches our heart. Not just once, every time we hear it, it gives you the same fresh feel. Jagjit Singh 70, underwent a surgery at Lilavati Hospital in Bandra on Friday after he suffered a brain hemorrhage. Doctors at the hospital performed an emergency surgery on Singh. Popularly known as the 'Ghazal King', Singh gained acclaim together with his wife, singer Chitra Singh. The couple was considered to be pioneers of modern Ghazal singing and regarded as most successful recording artistes outside the realm of Indian film music. Chitra stopped giving public performances after their only son, Vivek, died in a road accident in the early 1990s.


Tum Itna Jo Muskura Rahe Ho

Kya Gham Hai Jisko Chhupa Rahe Ho

Aankhon Mein Nami, Hansi Labon Par

Kya Haal Hai Kya Dikha Rahe Ho

Ban Jayenge Zehar Peete Peete

Yeh Ashq Jo Piye Ja Rahe Ho

Jin Zakhmon Ko Waqt Bhar Chala Hai

Tum Kyon Unhe Chhedhe Ja Rahe Ho

Rekhaon Ka Khel Hai Muqaddar

Rekhaon Se Maat Kha Rahe Ho



Let his sole rest in peace.
