Popularly known as “The Ghazal King” he gained acclaim together with his wife, another renowned Indian Ghazal singer Chitra Singh, in the 1970s and 1980s, as the first ever successful duo act (husband-wife) in the history of recorded Indian music. Together, they are considered to be the pioneers of modern ghazal singing and regarded as most successful recording artistes outside the realm of Indian film music. He has sung in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati, Sindhi and Nepali languages. He was awarded India’s third highest civilian honour, the Padma Bhushan, in 2003.
Widely credited for the revival and popularity of Ghazal, an Indian classical art form, by simplifying the complex form of Ghazals in to a more simpler form of Ghazals by amalgamating Ghazal and Geet.

India’s current Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur are known to be avid admirers.
Famous Ghazals of jagjit singh
Hosh walun ko Khabar kia Bekhudi kia cheez hai
Ahh Ko Chahye Ik umr Asar honay tak
Agar ham kahayn or wo muskura dain..
Ek nazar daikh kay ham jan gaye…
Sham se Ankh mai nami si hai
Kis ka Chehra ab mai daikhun tera chehra daikh kar
Tum hamaray nahi to kia gham hai
Kabhi Khamosh baithogay
Hazarun Khwahishay esi ki har Khwahish pay dam niklay mirza ghalib
muu ki baat, neem kay pad

“Spirituality is a way of life. It is about dealing with oneself. It helps you look into yourself and analyse things. I believe the answer to all your problems is within you.

Last January/February, I went back to the Afghanistan’s Pamir mountains to have my first “real” experience shooting film. It’s a long story that brought us there, but it was due to the motivation of Louis Meunier (Director of the project). Louis has a long experience in Afghanistan, and he was not the first director to approach me on doing a film on the Afghan Kyrgyz – but his experience, honesty and motivation made it happen. We shared our knowledge of the area and we eventually got last-minute funding from the Danish Embassy in Afghanistan to shoot this film. Thanks so much dear Danes! This last winter was the first session of a 2 (or 3) session-shooting in the Afghan Pamir.
During an interview break, a Kyrgyz looks through my camera.
As far as filming, I was going to be paired up with another cameraman. I was fearing a show-off dude, but instead I was lucky enough to be teamed up with a kind, patient and extremely talented man: Laurent Fleutot (Director of Photography on “The Winged Migration” and “Oceans”, among others). read more..
