s.He was popular as "Jeet" for his kin but couldn't win the battle of life.
When i got the news
of Jagjit Singh's brain hemorrhage kidding to my colleague i said that
make special pages for him.2011 is witnessing the deaths of so many
prominent personalities,may be that's why but this was really absurd
when i got the shocking news of his demise.
Listening his ghazal was just finding the eternity the wordings,the utterances and the lively performance.
was there if you would have as lucky to watch his live concert.Born in
1941 in Sriganganagar, Rajasthan,to Punjabi parents,he learnt music at
the feet of Pandit Chhaganlal Sharma in the early years of his life,
then under Ustad Jamaal Khan of the Sainia gharana. His grooming would
eventually ensure that unlike other ghazal singers who attained
popularity in the ‘80s only to fade away, Jagjit was not only able to
ride a crest but guard against any trough.
I missed the live
shows as well as a glimpse of him.people these days even live in 80 and
90s why the good people die early.This is the life and the truth about
it.Ghazal has depth and its own meaning and expression.There is a very
common notion that (Ghazal wahi sunta hai jike paas akal ahoti hai)the
mean of saying so is one who ocuupies the deep understanding listens the
ghazals and understand it.
A self portrait character for himself
in the age when the identification of ghazals was to established there
are not many more names to count on the fingure,Talat Mehmood, Noor
Jehan and some more names but he gave a dizzy height to the ghazal in
the Indian film industry and left the inspiration for the kid like
Ranjeet Rajwada, a SA RE GA MA PA contestant who got the future of
gazhal awarad for his extra-ordinary singing.
A voice which
carved the ghazal singing will not be heard now.There is a complete void
in this arena.people prefer to listen now Jazz,Discathics rap and
bhangra not the ghazals.The sweet sound of Jagjit will remain in the
hearts of millions but only to remember.This is really a great loss not
only for the Music industry but also for the fans who loved him form the
core of heart.
Being a music lover the words don't have the
capability to express the feeling,love,sympathy and sorrow to loose such
an eminent personality of the music industry.Now only his songs will be
on the leaps in the isolation.
He is survived by his wife,Chitra Singh.
