Paying tributes to ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh, who died at Lilawati hospital in Mumbai, Adharshila, a cultural organisation of artistes, writers and journalists, today described his death as an irreparable loss to the world of music which can never be filled . Paying tributes to the Ghazal King , noted journalist, film analyst and Adharshila president Pradeep Sardana said, The golden days of ghazal which one saw during the life of Jagjit Singh are unlikely to return. The kind of popularity that Jagjit Singh lended to the genre of ghazals through his efforts is without any example anywhere else in the world. He gave new wings to the genre of ghazal by freeing it from abstract Urdu words and the pure classical style, thus taking it to all the corners of the world. Ghazals, which were earlier appreciated only in special gatherings of the elite, were presented in an altogether new style and new avataar by Jagjit Singh. In this sense, it is difficult to find anywhere in the world a singer like Jagjit Singh, Mr Sardana said. The ghazal maestro died yesterday at Lilawati hospital, where he was admitted on September 23 after suffering brain haemorrage. UNI AR SW1834
