  1. A Tribute
    to the Unforgettable Jagjit ji
    on his 3rd Death Anniversary…

    Beyond the Clouds of Time
    Dr. Aparna Chattopadhyay
    In the cascade of my reminiscences
    Time and again,
    You come alive in my cherished
    and revered memories…..
    I hear your mellow voice,
    In the melodious song of
    The nightingale and
    The tender rain- drops of
    The first monsoon.
    I feel you walking along side me
    Under the whispering pine trees…
    The haunting blue hills….
    And the fragrant wild-flowers…
    Your presence embalms my senses mysteriously…
    I feel you all around…
    In the silvery clouds…
    The glittering stars…
    The seven hues of the mystical rainbow…
    The seven notes of your mesmerizing music…
    The grandeur of the seven seas…
    The nostalgic fragrance of the haunting tuberoses…
    The jasmine…and the forget- me-nots….
    Your ethereal presence- like a breath of fresh air
    Heals my senses… and rejuvenates my soul.
    I long to thank you
    For these intangible gifts…
    The magic of your old – world – charm
    Surrounds me nostalgically…
    Time seems to stand still
    During such ethereal moments…
    Your undying mystique –
    Overpowering and amazing
    Comes alive again-
    Incredibly… mystically…
    Beyond the slippery sands of time…
    Like a mysterious mirage…
    An elusive something…
    Apparently so near
    Yet so unapproachable…
    And out of the world…

    “ Tum se bichar kar
    Tum ko bhulana
    Mumkin hai aasaan nahin
    Deewane is dil ko manana
    Mumkin hai aasaan nahin…”

    How right were you when you sang this –
    Your last unreleased & realistic ghazal…

  2. Birthday Reminiscences
    (On the fourth Birth Anniversary of Jagjit Singhji – Feb 8, 2015)
    Dr. Aparna Chattopadhyay

    Our unforgettable and revered Jagjitji,
    On your celestial birthday, we send you our warm wishes with fond remembrances.
    As one remembers you, one feels vividly —
    – The wafting scent of your intangible presence every now and then —–
    – The soft nuances of your melodious voice reverberating in the air —–
    – The sweet memories of your generosity and kindness in your thoughtful gestures —-
    – The fragrance of your majestic personality and its rare genius —–
    – The soft balmy effect of your scintillating melodies —
    – The beauty of your subtle wit and humour and its mysterious healing power —
    – The elegance of your dignified and quiet manner —-
    – The glow of your charismatic persona and its mesmerizing appeal —-

    How could, then, one forget you ever, who gave us so much to remember— ?

    Here’s a modest gift – my tribute to you on your birthday – ‘Samarpan’ – a music album of some of your favourite devotional songs sung by me in my modest attempt to keep their memory fresh. The album is not for sale and is only for distribution amongst your fans.

    While I embarked upon this endeavour, a relevant couplet came to my mind, time and again;
    “ Hamey raaston ki zaroorat nahin hai,
    Hamey aapke kadamon ke nishan mil gaye hain ….”
    Indeed, following your invaluable footsteps in the mists of your memories, is a beautiful way of missing you ….
    May the peace and blessings of God be upon you always .

    — Aparna Chattopadhyay
