I remember my days in Bhandup, Mumbai, where I was living as a paying guest during my bachelor days. I had a small tape recorder which used to play non stop Jagjit Singh ji's Ghazals....so much that once my house-owner, in whose flat I was staying came and asked me..
"If at all you want to play music so loudly why cant you play some good filmi songs? Why these ghazals which none of us enjoy?"
One of the ghazals I used to play then was "Kal chaudwin Ki raat thi" . Here I have tried to sing it in my own style - means I have made some improvisations in certain harkatein.
In addition to the version of Jagjit ji, there is another version sung by Ghulam Ai Saheb also of this great ghazal written by Ibne-e-Insha.
Please listen to this and give your feedback...
