My favourite music: Farida Khanum - Aaj jane ki zid na karo


I discovered Farida Khanum's romantic ghazal in Raag Yaman Kalyan, when my friend Lakshmi Prabhala posted a link to an article and the ghazal on Facebook.

At these times I love FB. I listened to the ghazal four times in a row, revelling in the melody and the music, and the 'haye'!  I know I will listen to it again and again to this uplifting and hopelessly romantic gem.

The article: The Djinn of Aiman

The ghazal: Aaj jane ki zid na karo
