This is possibly the most philosophical set of ghazals Jagjit Singh has ever sung. They run the entire gamut, from the clarity of yeh zindagi to the wandering metaphors in garaj baras. Certainly Nida Fazli has outdone himself here, and Jagjit Singh infuses just the right amount of reflection into his voice to balance the apparent agon.
This ghazal has more allusive metaphors than I can enumerate and it
never fails to move me to consideration. What I like about Jagjit's
rendering is the movement between a slurring chant and the clarity that
enters his words when he encounters something new in the song. This is
a trip if there ever was one.
