Heard of Jagjit Singh? Ghazal 11

From the first album that I ever heard and yes, got it dubbed because the original was too expensive. This was a cobalt recorded cassette. The album from which this emerges is an album worth its weight in Gold. The name is ‘In search’ and yes I will, am sure mention more ghazals from it at some point or the other. You hear Jagjit singh in the part where he says ‘jaaye‘ in the antra that has ‘ye nadi kaise paar ki jaaye‘, you can imagine the distance with his voice. The poetry and pathos of this ghazal is par excellence, Rahat Indori, the magnificient!

Jagjit singh, had you been present today, you would have seen this hashtag, superficial and entitled generation go crazy about you.

Mere maazi ke zakhm bharne lage, aaj fir koi bhool ki jaaye
