Jagjit Singh: Ghazal lost its last King


Today god have taken away a beautiful soul on his arms from us. The king of Ghazals Jagjit Singh.
On 1941 in Rajsthan he was born in a Sikh family but the introduction of his life is not complete without his beautiful Ghazals.
Jagjit Singh was the voice of many Sayers of urdu & hindi poetry including Ghalib. He was the bridge of ganga jamuni tahjib. Who link the equality, not caste and made his music as religion to his lover.
But Time......!!!
Just can only say his famous Ghazal lines:

Admi bulbula he pani ka,
Or pani ki sathe par....
Tutha bhi he,
Dubta bhi he,
Fir ubharta he.
Fir se bahta he.
Na samunder nigal ska isko,
Na tarikh tod payi he.
Waqt ki mauz par sada bahta,
Admi bulbula he pani ka...


¤ I dedicate few lines for him...
zindgi ki tanhaio me,
ghir k jab tanha hua..
dard k pamano me dub kar,
jab jab bahe..
tab tab teri awaj sunkr,
dil se bas itna kha..
"A Dile nada tujhe hua kya",
"gam ka khajana tera bhi he mera bhi"
