The Unforgettable was the first album of ghazals and nazms launched by Jagjit-Chitra. It was released in 1977.

These days television and FM radio stations bombard the viewers/listeners with new film songs. A song becomes popular at once, or not at all. In a month or two, another song takes its place at the top of the Pop charts and it’s gone forever.

But those were slower times. When I turned up in Delhi in 1979, The Unforgettable was still gathering steam. My cousins had a turntable, and I listened to this album in the good old way, placing the needle on the record. The sounds were amazing. The music was soothing and seductive. Jagjit’s voice, heavy but low, crooned out the ghazals. Chitra’s fluty voice was melodious. Together they seduced my senses with the breathtaking shairi and a melody that gave me an out of body experience.

I listened to the album over and over again. I bought a copy of its cassette as well and listened to it all the time. It never lost its magic for me. At each listening, I would fall under its spell anew.

I know there are many other ghazal singers who are far superior. But that was the time of Jagjit and Chitra and they ruled the roost.

I was just at the end of my teens then. I was full of hopes and aspirations. The world was out there and full of possibilities. In such a rosy scenario, such songs sounded even sweeter, such songs that spoke of love and longing.

For this post I have chosen the first song in the album, “Baat niklegi to phir door talak jayegi”. The song is a recitation of the shairi, it is not ‘sung’. Yet Jagjit Singh’s mellifluous voice makes it sound like a soulful nazm. It speaks of a lover asking a young girl to hide her passions lest she is censured for it. It is loaded with sensuality and sweetness of love.


Song-Baat niklegi to phir door talak jaayegi (Jagjit Singh NFS)(1977) Singer-Jagjit Singh, Lyrics-Kafeel Azar, MD-Jagjit Singh

Lyrics

Baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi
Log bewajha
Udaasi ka sabab poochenge
Yeh bhi poochenge
ki tum itni pareshaan kyun ho

Ungliyaan uthengi
sookhe huye baalon ki taraf
ik nazar dekhenge
guzre huye saalon ki taraf
Choodiyon par bhi kayi tanz kiye jaayenge
Kaanpte haathon pe bhi, fikre kase jaayenge

Log zaalim hain
har ik baat ka taana denge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
unki baaton ka zara sa bhi asar mat lena
Warna chehre ke ta’asur se samajh jaayenge

Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae
Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae ae
Mere baare mein koi baat na karna unse

baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi

The 3rd death anniversary of Ghazal King Jagjit Singh was on October 1Oth and the 76th birth day of Urdu poet and lyricist Nida Fazli was on October 12th. For the occasions, I had planned to write a combined post and had selected a song months back to be posted on the Blog in October 1Oth or 12th. But some other activities relating to travels and pre Deewali atmosphere in my house resulted in diversion of my mind and in the process, I completely forgot about writing the article for the occasion. It was only when I saw a post on the occasion of the birthday of Nida Fazli that I got reminded of my pending article. Even though anniversary dates have passed, it is never late for paying tributes.

Today, February 8th 2014 is the 73rd birth anniversary of Jagjit Singh ( 08/02/1941 – 10/10/2011) who is regarded as a catalyst in reviving ghazals as a form of singing not only in India but across the world. He transformed ghazal singing into an easier and acceptable form to suit the taste of masses. And what a coincidence! When Malika e ghazal, Begum Akhtar passed away in October 1974, Jagjit Singh was on the way up of becoming a popular ghazal singer when his first LP disc ‘The Unforgettable’ (1976) became commercially successful. So there was a sort of change of guard and handing over the baton of sorts in that Jagjit Singh took over the mantle of ghazal singing after the demise of Begum Akhtar.

shahar ki raat aur main naashaad o naakaara phiroon
jagmagaati jaagti sadakon pe aawaara phiroon
ae gham e dil kya karoon
ae vahshat e dil kya karoon

This is the mukhda of a very popular song from the film ‘Thokar’ (1953). Most of the lovers of old Hindi film songs would know that the song was rendered by Talat Mehmood and there is a version song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Many among them may also be aware that the song was composed by music director Sardar Malik. But I am not sure as to how many would to know the name of the poet who created this beautiful nazm of despair and loneliness. I was one among them. Many years later, I came to know that it was the creation of Majaz. Then the next question – who was Majaz?. I had no inclination then in seeking an answer to this question.

Connoisseurs of Urdu poetry may recall that sometime in early 90s, Doordarshan televised a TV serial KAHAKASHAN covering the lives of six of the doyens of Urdu poetry – Firaq Gorakhpuri, Hasrat Mohani, Jigar Moradabadi, Josh Malihabadi, Majaz Lacknawi and Makhdoom Mohiuddin. This TV serial was produced by another well known Urdu poet and writer, Ali Sardar Jafri, the contemporary of these galaxy of poets. The serial was directed by Jalal Agha. I had seen some of the episodes of this serial in the 90s but did not remembered much of the contents. A few months back, I came across the episodes of this TV serial on the internet. I have already watched the episodes covering Firaq Gorakhpuri and Majaz Lucknawi. The treatment in the serial is biographical in nature covering some of the important events in the lives of these poets interspersed with their own ghazals many of which were sung Jagjit Singh who also composed the music for the TV serial. Watching the episodes covering these two Urdu poets, to say the least, was a heart wrenching experience for me as the lives of these two poets were full of pains, misery, misfortunes and loneliness. My curiosity to learn more about these six Urdu poets grew after I had watched this T V serial.
