  8. In memory: The times when two greats - Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh - joined forcesRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Feb 8 | The Indian Express

    These poignant words written by poet-lyricist Nida Fazli and sung by ghazal singer Jagjit Singh bear testimony to the greatness of these two legendary artistes - both joined in fate with the date February 8. In 1941, the legendary ghazal singer Jagmohan Singh was born in the Bikaner state of Rajputana in British India; 75 years later, on February 8, 2016, his genius colleague and the man whose words Singh often sung passed away. An irony that may be seen as a symbol of the circle of life, or maybe an indicator of how these two artistes are connected, Fazli was born on October 12, 1938, and Singh died on October 10, 2011, after battling years of cancer.
