An eternal voice now lay rest in peace … ghazal lost its mentor in Jagjit Singh..world of ghazal will never be same again .. “hazaron khawaishen aisi ki har khawish pe dum nikle”
This is a huge and irrepairable loss to the Indian Music and the Ghazal lovers. May the departed soul rest in the peace in the heaven!
Jagjeet gaye…Jag Jeet gaye…Ghazal ki Mehfil Chor Gaye….
This is a really bad news for lover of Ghazal not only in India but in Pakistan and across the world.
