Jagjit Singh : Live in Concert

Today I was very lucky to get the tickets at the last moment at the counter, only to be mesmerised by the voice of the  Jagjit Singh. This is the 2nd time that I am watching his live concert, but in short, every moment spend out there was beautiful. His voice is a blessing and nothing can beat it.

He sang the famous songs including "Hosh walon ko khabar kya .." from Sarfarosh. When he was singing the "Hoton Se Chuulo Tum","Tumko Dekha to yeh kahyal aaya " and "Aahista Aahista", the whole audience sang in chorus with the maestro. It was one of the lovely feelings one could get. The simplicity of the songs made the evening an eventful one along with the very very impressive jugal bandi's simply made the crowd go wild with claps.

Another interesting part was that, the a/c in the auditorium was not working, so he made very interesting comments on the organiser's through songs, by changing some of the lyrics, and got the crowd to mellow down. One of the Professional  at his best.
