About the CD

Ghalib, Lata and Pt. Hridaynath Mangeshkar make a rare eclectic combination for this album on Ghazals.

These nine hand-picked ghazals by the great 19the century master poet MIRZA GHALIB, bring out the essence and versatility of his incredible work. To begin with, Ghalib broke loose from the conventional form of the then prevailant Urdu poetry, to express with power and sensitivity the tenderest feelings through his ghazals. In a life that veered through luxury and poverty, fame and imprisonment, glory and injustice, Ghalib’s turbulent life was enriched enough to express through his poetry, every human emotion and sentiment. As future Urdu poets would remark - ‘there is nothing in life that Ghalib has left untouched through his immortal verses’.

Words and verses when drenched in music create a song that lingers in immortality. For this, the composer paints notes that enrich the feel of the lyric and enhance the word value. PANDIT HARIDAYNATH MANGESHKAR has stood out for precisely this very rare gift. His passion for poetry in several languages, his ability to select and nurture poets, has created a vast anthology of songs that remains fresh purely on the strength of his unique quality to weave the poetic thought into the tapestry of his distinctive music. In this selection, you will notice the flawless cadence of Ghalib’s lines glowing richly in Pt. Hridaynath’s melodies.

The confluence of words and music, so painstakingly balanced, needs on ideal interpreter to bring to a composition. The reason why Lata Mangeshkar stands out as the voice of the century is largely due to her magical quality of presenting every song that caresses the ears with musical perfection, and warms the heart with her subtle word pointing, Lata’s rendition remains the definitive interpretation of any composition, and in these ghazals recorded at her peak, bring you Ghalib with feeling.

In addition, this CD contains two more Ghalib ghazals tuned by Faiyyaz Shoukat, and a Wajid Ali Shah composition set to music by Pt. Hridaynath Mangeshkar. Also included are three rare ghazals composed by K.Mahavir penned by Shakeel Badayuni, Khalish Dehlvi and Abhilash, from one of the very few private albums that Lata Mangeshkar recorded in her unparalled career of six decades.

Naqsh fariyadi hai 1
Dard minnal kasha dawa na hua
Rone se aur ishq mein 2
Yeh hum jo hijr mein 3
Phir mujhe deeda-e-tar yaad aaya 4
Koi umeed bar nahin aati 5
Kabhi neki bhi uske jee mein gar 6

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
