Just came to know that Jagjit Singh’s (step)daughter is no more. Suicide.
Jagjit and Chitra Singh had already lost a son in the prime of his youth, after which Chitra stopped singing. Some say that’s the reason why Jagjitji has so much dard in his voice.
Many of my most favourite ghazals have been sung by Jagjitji. That way, I share a special bond with him.
Kind of saddened to know of this. I don’t know what to say. I guess I’ll just listen to and put up one of my favourite, magical Jagjit ghazals.
