I wrote this Nazm back in the Fall of 2006 in Lansing and Nikhil and I composed it a few yrs back. This is a preview recording I did last evening. Dedicated to all friends, old and new, lost and rediscovered… )
Was trying to learn this Ghazal by Anup Jalota on Guitar this evening and decided to leave my camera running..
Recorded Happy Birthday on Guitar today for my nephew and niece who sent me birthday wishes by singing Happy Birthday song on Guitar. Never too late to wish them back!
During my last visit to Delhi, I stopped by to see some friends at Sri Aurobindo Ashram and sang a few songs on request. Here is one of our (Iktara’s) Original compositions Door Vadiyon Se.
Live rendition of Iktara’s Original Composition “Chalte hi Chalte” performed by me on Guitar with a friend Devesh at a musical night at Sri Aurobindo Ashram.Â This was part of a musical evening organized by the Ashram. Please excuse the Airplane disturbance during the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucp1RYLeGdU
â€Ž2nd tribute to Majaaz Lucknawi sahab’s Ghazal “Ai Gam E Dil Kya Karun (Awaara)” composed and performed by Jagjit Singh. One of the most poignant compositions of JS, mostly unknown to people.

Recorded a medley of Anup Jalota’s 3 Ghazals “Jo fareb maine khaye”, “Saqi teri nazar” and “Dard ki aanch se”.
April was the month of recordings and this is my humble attempt at “Meri Ajab Hai Zindagi”, from the older lot of Ghazals by Jagjit Singh Ji.
My humble attempt at this immortal Nazm by Rajendra Nath Rehbar, composed and performed by Jagjit Singh Ji.
One of my favourite songs that me and my brother grew up listening to back in the 90s. My humble attempt at this golden-voiced Pat Boone’s 1961 #1 release Moody River on my Classical Guitar. Words: Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife Moody river, your muddy water took my baby’s life Last Saturday…
