    [​IMG]

    NEW DELHI: Renowned ghazal singer Jagjit Singh, 70, passed away at 8 am in Lilavati Hospital on Monday morning.

    Jagjit Singh was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital on September 23 after he suffered brain haemorrhage in suburban Bandra where a life-saving surgery was performed on him.

    He is survived by his wife Chitra Singh.

    Jagjit Singh was born in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan. He had four sisters and two brothers and he is known as Jeet by his family.

    Popularly known as "The Ghazal King" he gained acclaim together with his wife, another renowned Indian ghazal singer Chitra Singh, in the 1970s and 1980s, as the first ever successful duo act (husband-wife) in the history of recorded Indian music.

    Recipient of Padma Bhushan award, he has sung in several languages including Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and Nepali.

    His popular ghazals include, Meri zindagi kisi aur ki, mere naam ka koi aur hai, Apni marzi se kahan apne safar ke hum hain, Wo jo hum mein tumme qaraar tha, Patta-patta boota-boota haal hamaara jaane hai, Hoshwalo ko khabar, etc.

    Jagjjit Singh has also sung for popular movies like Sarfarosh and Tarqeeb.

    I was a fan of his.

    RIP maestro!

    Interesting question was once asked of me as to what is a geet and what is a ghazal.

    Any takers?

    A great man will be missed by all. He was the person who made Ghazals popular with the common man.

    RIP Maestro

    RIP, Mr.Singh !! My favorite other than Pankaj Udhas. Shash is right, ghazals will loose their popularity with his passing away. A gem of a singer !
    Very tragic loss, indeed..
