REVIEW FOR JAGJIT SINGH GHAZAL NITE
Remember Venkatesh who battled for euthanasia and organ donation? Okay, remember Jagjit Singh? That's good enough.

The Hyderabad International Convention Centre is presenting a ghazal nite by Ghazal Maestro Jagjit Singh, on 2nd October, at its Hitex Centre, in aid of the Venkatesh Muscular Dystrophy Foundation.

The program starts with a 1-hour musical nite by N Hemachandra, who will lend his award-winning voice to some patriotic and cine songs, followed by soothing ghazals by the maestro Jagjit Singh.

This evening is being organised in aid of Venkatesh Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, a counselling and helping centre for muscular dystrophy patients, started in memory of Venkatesh, a person who died in 2004 due to this life-threatening disease.

Hemachandra is from Hyderabad, and is the cousin of another singer Karunya. He rose to fame with Zee TV's Saregama Pa. He is the nephew and disciple of N C Murthy. He made the entire nation dance to his numbers in the TV program Saregama Pa. He has given various performances in India and abroad. He's also sung a few numbers for Telugu movies.

Jagjit Singh is one of the topmost ghazal singers, born in Ganganagar, Rajasthan. Although his late father wanted him to become a bureaucrat by joining the Indian Administrative Service, he chose the world of music. He learnt music under Pandit Chaganlal Sharma for two years in Ganganagar, and later devoted six years to learning Khayal, Thumri and Dhrupad forms of Indian Classical Music from Ustad Jamaal Khan of Sainia Gharana.

He arrived in Mumbai in 1965 in search of better opportunities as a career musician and singer. His early struggle in the music industry, though not too harsh by his own account, still had its share of trials and tribulations. He lived as a paying guest, and his earlier assignments were singing advertisement jingles or performing at weddings and parties.

He has many music albums to his credit, many of which topped both the ghazal and the music charts. He has done mostly solo albums, but his numbers with Chitra Singh (his wife) and Lata Mangeshkar are some of the memorable ones. His songs Sarakti Jaye Hai Rukh Se Naqab Aahista Aahista, Aah Ko Chahiye, Baat Nicklegi To Door Talak Jayegi and Woh Kagaz Ki Kashti are some of his best. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2003.

The entry to the musical evening is through donor passes of Rs. 1,500 (family pass of 4 members), Rs. 1,000 (couple) and Rs. 500 (single/stag), available at all Music World and Hyderabad House outlets in the city.
