On the occassion of Jagjit Singh’s birthday today, here is a a beautiful ghazal witten by Sudaarshan Faakir and sung by Jagjit Singh.

Aadmi Aadmi Ko Kya Dega
Jo bhi dega wahi khuda dega

Mera qaatil hi mera munsif hai
Kya meray haq mein faisla dega
Qaatil-murderer; Munsif – judge

Zindagi ko qareeb say dekho
Iska chehra tumhay rula dega

Humsay poocho na dosti ka sila
Dushmano ka bhi dil hila dega

Ishq ka zehr pe liyaa, Faakir (I have drunk the poison of love, Faakir)
Ab maseeha de kya dawa dega (what medicine, Messiah can you give now)
