I was trying to learn this Ghazal by Late Kashmiri Singer, Vijay Malla today and tried to record a first attempt on my phone (bear with quality) on a lazy Sunday here in Sitla village in Himalayas so you may be able to hear some birds in the background. In a function once, Malla, known as the Ghulam Ali of Kashmir, touched an emotional chord while he sang Ehsan Qamri’s Urdu ghazal “Ham Se Mat Poochhiye Hum Kidhar Jaayenge: Thhak Gaye Hain Bahut, Apne Ghar Jaayenge” (literally meaning: Don’t ask where I shall go; Too tired, I want to go home now), tears rolled down many an eye. My tribute to Vijay Ji’s beautiful voice.Ghazal penned by: Ehsan Qamri

Thank you Gautamji, I was trying to fiend out this great singer whom I have never heard, but my friend was use to sing this Ghazal in words while he was sick. To me you are the great Ghazalkar. Today you made my day. Thanks again for presenting this Ghazal from depth of your heart……om
