Singer Bhupinder Singh passes away at 82

“Dil dhoondhta hai phir wohi, fursat ke raat din; baithe rahe tasavvur-e-jaana kiye huye”

Mirza Ghalib, whose couplet serves as the song’s opening line, is largely responsible for one of Gulzar’s most enduring love songs. The couplet was enhanced with poetic skill by Gulzar by replacing the word “Jee” with “Dil,” and it was written in the sweet Raag Keervani by Madan Mohan.

Bhupinder Singh’s slightly sluggish, languid voice, which drifts a few seconds behind the concept, was incorporated into this almost flawless fusion of poetry and song. It had a distinctive expression that wasn’t typical of male playback singers of the era.

Singh, who inspired millions with songs like this one and others, passed away on Monday night after suffering a heart arrest. He was 82 years old and had spent the prior 10 days in the hospital.

The director of Criticare Asia Hospital, Dr. Deepak Namjoshi, stated, “On Monday morning, his condition deteriorated, and we had to place him on a ventilator. At 7:45 o’clock, he had a heart arrest and passed away.

Singh, who was born in Amritsar, was raised in West Patel Nagar in Delhi. He began his career with Doordarshan and All India Radio in Delhi. At a gathering in Delhi, Madan Mohan overheard Singh and suggested that he try his luck as a composer for motion pictures.Later in life, he also began singing ghazals, frequently on stage with his wife, vocalist Mitali Singh.
