Ghazal is safe in its place

In a conversation over tea in a hotel in Gomtinagar, referring to the things of 33 years ago, Talat Aziz said that many memories with Naushad Sahab are still fresh in my mind. He said that Ghazal is safe in its place. Social media likes are not necessary for everyone. It’s been 42 years since I was on the stage of Ghazals. Ghazal has many specialties. The format itself is different. The whole world is contained in two Egypt. The language of Ghazal is Hindavi, it is Deccani.

Kavita Seth said about musician Naushad that great people always live with simplicity. There is a famous saying that Thotha Chana Baje Ghana. Whatever may be the song, poem, poetry, the spirituality should remain intact. I am from the city where the jhumka fell.

Former Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma while giving mementoes to the guest artists said that today those artists are present in Lucknow whose reach is beyond the borders of the country to the international platform. Work is going on fast on Film City in Uttar Pradesh. The day is not far when the artist will say we are from the UP film industry.
