Continuing my celebration of Jagjit Singh‘s life and music, I decided to record this Ghazal that I first heard in 10th grade back in High School, when it was first released in 1996. Hope you enjoy this humble Tribute. Corrections/Comments welcome. Volume is a bit low, so raise it up please.
Jeete rehne ki saza de, zindagi ae zindagi
Ab to marne ki dua de zindagi ae zinda–gi
Main to ab uqta gaya hoon kya yahi hai qayanat
Bas ye aaina hata de zindagi ae zindagi
Dhoondne niklaa tha tujhko aur khud ko kho diya
Tu hi ab mera pata de zindagi ae zindagi
Yaa mujhe ehsaas ki ees qaid se kar de rihaa
Warna deewana banaade zindagi ae zindagi

Surely not an easy one……wonderfully sung. Keep up the spirit.
