Jagjit Ji : The Evergreen singer. Read on to some timeless tracks by Evergreen Jagjit Singh.
Tum Itna Jo Muskura Rahe Ho,
Nobody knows how sad you’re, nobody knows the pain you hide behind that dazzling smile. But then, there are some people who truly love you, and they are the ones who know you inside out. They can see the cracks in your soul, no matter how hard you try to cover them up under the curve of your lips. Sung by Jagjit Singh, the song brings a realization that not every person with a smiling face is happy.
Tum Ko Dekha To Yeh Khayal Aaya,
There are a lot of people you know, but there’s only one person who feels like your home. Amid all the hardships in life, their company is what keeps you sane. Love isn’t always about happy endings, sometimes you’ve to let go of them with a heavy heart, maybe this is how your destiny is shaped.
Hothon Se Choo Lo Tum,
When your love is real and as holy as a shrine, it doesn’t see any difference coming your way. It stands tall and upright against the storms passing by. Love is not finding perfection in everything, but embracing each other’s imperfections, and celebrating them with each passing day, helping each other grow and evolve. The melody in Jagjit Singh’s voice is a timeless beauty.
In Jagjit Singh’s voice, “Koi fariyaad mere dil mein dabi ho jaise” is a melody that brings you realization and teaches you to owe the damage you’ve caused to someone and eventually face the consequences rather than running away from the truth. Written by Faaiz Anwaar, music given by Nikhil, Vinay, and sung in the immortal voice of Jagjit Singh makes this a masterpiece. It’s been two decades, the melody is still etched in minds like it happened yesterday, a poetry of pure pain and love.

Chithi Na Koi Sandesh,
You are left with nothing, but memories of your loved ones which you feel like cherishing till the end of eternity. Their clothes, their wardrobe, their bed, still smell like them and you cling onto all of these things like this is the only treasure you have got. Every time you see the empty side of bed, there is a tornado of pain that flinches in your chest. There is a constant void in your life that can never be filled no matter how hard you try. In Jagjit Singh’s soulful voice, the song is a tribute to all the people who left too soon for their heavenly abode.
Yeh Daulat Bhi Le Lo,
When maturity hits, you realize how hard life has become. The song in Jagjit Ji’s voice is an ode to the good old days when you were carefree and your nights were peaceful. The song brings back thousands of memories from your childhood, bedtime stories, catching butterflies, dancing in the rain, and many more such things. You’ve grown up, you’ve got the money, but you don’t have the peace and utter joy you had when you were a kid. With time, everything is left behind, and you’re here, standing in the middle of nowhere willing to be a child again.
Jhuki Jhuki Si Nazar,
Have you ever been in a situation where you love someone with all your heart, and you aren’t even sure if they love you or not? Your sheer tenacity to never let them go questions you sometimes if this is worth it. You want to know if your feelings are reciprocated or not, and there are plenty of questions running through your mind for which you seek answers.
Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi,
This everlasting rendition in the magical voice of Jagjit Ji is an everlasting treat to the ears. The song beautifully depicts that one never gets what they want, and this is what is called the tragedy of life. You get attached, you want them, but eventually, you never have everything you dreamt of. You die every moment thinking maybe, someday your wishes are granted, but until then, you never give up and continue to yearn for more. With this timeless beauty, Jagjit Ji brought the great Ghalib to life.
Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya,
In Jagjit Ji’s terrific voice, the song is a walk down memory lane. The words are weaved in a poetry 5 minutes and 6 seconds long, and as euphonious as it is to the ears, it’s a treat for the eyes as well. Sometimes you prefer not to confess your love to someone because you fear losing them. You silently watch them from a distance and live your kind of forever in this short span of time.
