Great Legend Jagjit Singh Passes AwayThe Indian music industry has suffered a great loss today, with the death of a great Ghazal legend Jagjit Singh. Jagjit was admitted in Lilavati Hospital Mumbai where he was diagnosed with brain hemorrhage. He remained there for a week, went in coma due to internal bleeding in the skull and breathed his last this morning 10th October, 2011.

It was indeed a shock for the entire Indian music industry where people worshipped him as a legend as he was an inspiration to many. Jagjit Singh along with wife Chitra Singh, introduced new forms of ghazals apart from the traditional ones that were being followed. The duo sang beautiful and melodious numbers together which are still considered as unparalleled such as woh kagaz ki kashti. The two of them earned great name with their melodious singing but soon Chitra faded away from the picture with the tragic death of her 21 yrs old son Vivek.

Many of his colleagues were grieved at the loss and Pankaj Udhas who happened to be a maestro in the same genre said, “His style was something incomparable, unparalleled. His voice was one in a billion. He was full of passion, life and humor,”.
