Song: Ye baatein Jhuti Baatein

A beautiful ghazal which playfully convinces the beloved not to take the "rumours" but only "love" seriously.  A humble attempt from me.

Dil Mein ik Lehar - Ghazal - A Cover

Song: Dil Mein ik Lehar
Composer - Singer : Ghulam Ali
Genre : Ghazal 

Covered by : Murali Venkatraman

A ghazal that caresses you like a gentle wave of in the shore, one which distills the romance and admixes the solitariness with an exquisite tune.  A humble attempt from me.

Baharon Ko Chaman - A cover version

Song: Baharon Ko Chaman
Composer - Singer : Ghulam Ali
Genre : Ghazal 

Covered by : Murali Venkatraman

If ghazal is a poetic form which expresses the unrequited love of a platonic being and represents a monologue to one's beloved, the highest form of its human manifestation can be called Ghulam Ali.  There is none who would take a ghazal and present it such that the beloved would feel guilty and possible run into the hands of the forlorn lover.

In here, is a humble attempt to sing one of his signature ghazals - Baharon ko chaman.  The lyrics are reflective and contemplative in content.  Hence the master chooses a simple lilting tune with not many accidentals which could overwhelm the listener.
