Tribute to Jagjit Singh, the ‘Ghazal King’, on his 75th birth anniversary today.


Every time a Ghazal lover is lost into an abyss of calmly watching the drops of first rain of the season touch the ground, while holding a steaming cup of tea in their palms- they are most probably humming Ye Kagaz Ki Kashti with a smile on their face. The ghazal is serene classic by Late Jagjit Singh. So far nothing has been made which even comes close to this timeless classic.
