About the Book

Perhaps the most unforgettable voice on the Indian music landscape, a composer whoserenaded poetry, the ghazal maestro who set the stage and his audience afire - the legend of Jagjit Singh is unique. To him goes the credit of reinventing the ghazal at a time when popular Hindi film music and its pantheon of legends like Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh held sway over the nation. Singh’s songs celebrate life and comment on its inequalities. He added new expressions, surprising twists and new instruments revolutionizing the performance of the Ghazal. This first-ever biography of Jagjit singh follows the evolution of the singer from student to struggler to performer par excellence, capable of making his audience laugh at a joke even as he moved them to tears with his voice. With eloquent candour, biographer Sathya Saran also tracks his personal journey – as a husband, father, friend and benefactor; the perfect partnership with his singer-wife Chitra Singh his tryst with spirituality; his fetish for horses; his unique way of coping with loss. This is an engrossing story told with rare sensitivity. It is the tale of a man loved by many, revered by some, and unsurpassed as yet in his chosen field.
