Jagjit Singh and Me


I used to sing. No, I really used to. At all parties and family gatherings. I am known among my friends from yonder years as a sort of a singer.

There were three songs that I used to sing quite frequently while I was growing up. In fact, on request I have had to sing this particular one a couple of times at the same party. Don’t ask me why, but that used to happen.

I am linking this third song that reached my singing list. And though we lost Jagjitji a few hours ago, I refuse to feel sad about it. I am not ready to lose that part of my childhood yet.

Jagjitji will remain immortal through his voice and his contributions to Indian Music.

  3. 🙂 I think I am going to regret mentioning that I sing. 🙂 When I was in grade 4/5/6 i used to sing “Albela Mausam” from the movie “Tohfa” very often in the classroom. After that till , in school, it was “Shabnam ka ek Khatra” from the film “Sharara”. Since anyway I am boasting about my singing list, there were two more added later on. “Kahin Door Jab Dil Dhal Jaaye” from “Anand” and “Tu mile” from “Criminal”. 😀
