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.
