Undoubtedly late Shri Jagjit Singh was an emperor of Ghazals and his passing away is a great loss to the lovers of his music. One of his songs Mera geet Amar Kar do... in addition to many other of his songs are famous and all his songs will remain in the hearts of music lovers for ever. His deep dignified voice carried the restlessness of a vagabond's heart and a philosoper's calm.He brought Ghazals to millions of drawing rooms of music lovers. My Musical salute to him. May his sould rest in peace.

my tribute:
to a great ghazal singer
who touched many hearts including mine
with his soul stirring renderings.

Usi Awaaz mein khokar,
Guzaare hain kai mausam,

tha uska fun, shari-ke-gham,
sukoo-ne-dil,koi marham

kabhi saathi, kabhi saaki,
tha sehelata akelapan

woh toota, par nahin bikhra,
parose bol, dhun,sargam

suro me ek sannata,
hai chhaya aaj khalipan,

gaya jag-jit,hue gum geet ,
ghazal ka ek daur dafan.
