Jagjit Singh's ghazals are magical. His voice has the power to make anyone fall in love with him. And February being a romantic month, there's no better way to celebrate love other than his soulful ghazals and lyrics.
Born as Jagmohan Singh Dhiman, popularly known as the 'Ghazal King' (Jagjit Ji) gained a massive following along with his wife, Chitra Singh, who is also a renowned ghazal singer.
The Padma Bhushan awardee Jagjit Ji breathed his last on October 10, 2011.
On that note, let's remember the man through these ghazals:
The minute I listen to his voice, I start humming and singing them.
Only Jagjit Singh can make you feel like that.
And trust me, your partner will melt like a candle.
If you get intimidated or affected by someone's presence or absence, you know you have lost your heart to them.
There are secrets behind every human emotion and a smile can hide those secrets really beautifully (at least in my case).
These are the raw thoughts that every guy has when has a crush on a girl.
Just the way I did.
Time is the best teacher, and if you give time to someone, your relation with them will definitely improve.
It is by far the worst fear and even the purest fear too.
Even when the rain starts to pour.
And this love can happen to anyone with anyone.
A story that the world will remember.
We must never suppress our feelings and always speak what we have been wondering at the right time, rather than regretting it later.
Love is a drug that can make or break anything and everything.
Every broken heart will relate with this one.
These lines might have been written by some noteworthy lyricists but Jagjit sir, thank you for bringing life to them.
We miss you, Sir.
