Jagjit Singh’s ghazals

I have been reading some nice quotes these days from fellow bloggers and some of them really touched deep within. Pushed my pen to collate down some nice lines from the ghazals of Jagjit Singh, that are just a master piece and just soothing and relaxing on the ears.

Hope my hindi translation doesn’t end up disrespecting his great notes and have tried my best with the spell checks.

A. Jhooth waley kahi se kahi badh gaye, aur main tha ki sach bol tha rehagaya (Aap ko dekh kar dekhta rehagaya)

B. Tum chaley Jaaoge toh sochenge, humne kya khoya humney kya paaya (tum kho dekha toh)

C. Hum toh hain unn phoolo jaise, jo kaaton main jee lete hain (Chak Jigar ke)

D. Hum laabon se kehna paaye unse haal-e-dil kabhi, aur woh samjhi nahin khamoshi kya cheez hain (Hoshwalon kho khabar)

E. Kuch paakar khona hain, kuch khokar paana hain, Jeevan ka matlab toh aana aur jaana hain (Ek pyaar ka nagma hain)

F. Woh masoom chahaat ki tasveer apni, naa duniya ka gham tha, na rishton key bandhan, badi khobsurat thi woh jindagani (kagaz ki kashti)

G. Jag ne cheena mujhse, mujhe jo bhi laga pyaara, Tum haarke dil apna
Meri jeet amar kar do (hothon se choolon tum)

Jagjitji, great heart touching ghazals! My salutations.
