Jagjit Singh And Ghulam Ali

Hello World !!!
Jagjit Singh And Ghulam Ali in concert.
Two giants of the ghazal world.
Although I 've not heard Ghulam much;
Im a big fan of Jagjit Singh.
His ghazals are truly exemplary.
"They render to your heart and enlighten your soul."
Last two times Jagjit Singh I somehow missed it.
But I'm not missing this time for sure.
I'm cancelling my holiday plans for teh week-end
to be in Bangalore for the show.

Some of my favorites are -->

socha nahiN achcha bura
------------------------------
socha nahiN achcha bura dekha suna kuch bhi nahiN
maanga khuda se raat din tere siwa kuch bhi nahiN

dekha tuJhe socha tuJhe chaaha tuJhe pooja tuJhe

meri khata meri wafa teri khata kuch bhi nahiN

jispar hamari aaNkh ne moti bichchaaye raat bhar

bheja wohi kaagaz tuJhe humne likha kuch bhi nahiN

ek shaam ki dahleez par baithe rahe wo der taq
aankhoN se kee baateN bahot humne kaha kuch bhi

Mere jaise jab ban jaoge
-----------------------------
mere jaise ban jaOge jab ishq tumhe ho jaayega
diwaroN se takraaOge jab ishq tumhe ho jaayega

har baat gawaara kar loge mannat bhi ukara loge
tabeejeN bhi bandhwaaOge jab ishq tumhe ho jaayega

tanhaayee ke jhoole jhoolOge har baat puraani bhoolOge
aayine se ghabraOge jab ishq tumhe ho jaayega

jab sooraj bhi kho jaayega aur chaand kahin so jaayega
tum bhi ghar der se aaOge jab ishq tumhe ho jaayega

bechaiNi jab baDh jaayegi aur yaad kisi ki aayegi
tum meri ghazaleN gaOge jab ishq tumhe ho jaayega

us's mod se shuru kareN
--------------------------
us's mod se shuru kareN phir Ye zindagi
har shay jahaN haseen thee, hum tum the ajnabi

lekar chale the hum jiNhe jannat ke khwaab the
phooloN ke khwaab the wo mohabbat ke khwaab the
lekin kahan hai unmeiN wo pehle see dilkashi

rehte the hum haseeN khaYaaloN ki bheeD meiN
ulJhe huye haiN aaj sawaaloN ki bheeD meiN
aane lagi hai yaad wo fursat ki har ghaDi

shaayad ye waqt humse koi chaal chal gaya
rishta wafa ka aur hi rangoN meiN dhal gaya
ashkoN ki chandini se thee behtar wo dhooP hi


CHEERS !!!!
