The Firstpost Playlist: The Beatles’ heartbreak, Ilaiyaraaja’s classical strains and Chitra Singh’s ghazal
This weekend, Firstpost Playlist pays tribute to the legends of music – from Ilaiyaraaja to The Beatles and from Julie Andrews to Chitra Singh.
Chitra Singh, who is fighting a lone battle to get her husband and late ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh the Bharat Ratna, says he deserves the country's highest civilian honour.
Other singers gave us songs. But Jagjit Singh gave us the Jagjit Singh sound. Make that the Jagjit Singh experience – silken, soothing, heartfelt, almost evergreen.
