Early life

Jagjit Singh Dhiman was born at Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, India.His father, Sardar Amar Singh Dhiman, was a surveyor with the government’s Public Works’ Department and hailed from village Dalla in Ropar district of Punjab.

Educated initially at Khalsa High School and Government College in Sri Ganganagar, Singh obtained an arts degree from DAV College, Jalandhar.

Personal life –

In 1990, Vivek (Jagjit Singh and Chitra’s son) died in a road accident at the age of 20. This came as a profound shock to Jagjit and Chitra Singh.

They gave up music for a full year after the death. At the end of that period, Jagjit returned slowly to music, but Chitra announced her retirement and declared that she would not sing or record any more songs.

Singh had suffered from numerous ailments like diabetes and hypertension during his later life, and had undergone two heart bypass surgeries in 1998 and 2007.

 A chain smoker for decades, he had stopped smoking after his first heart attack.

Career –

There, he began his professional career in 1961 by undertaking singing and composing assignments at All India Radio’s (AIR) Jalandhar station.

Later, he studied to obtain a post-graduate degree in history from Kurukshetra University in Haryana.

Throughout this time, and as a consequence of a natural talent that was spotted by his father, Singh learned music initially from a visually impaired master of Indian classical music, Pandit Chagan Lal Sharma and later from Ustad Jamal Khan of Maihar gharana, who taught and trained him in all the prominent styles of Hindustani Classical vocal tradition such as Khayal, Dhrupad, Thumri and others.

In March 1965, and without the knowledge of his family,Singh moved to Bombay, where there were many opportunities for music artists because of the Hindi film industry.

He obtained work initially as a singer of advertising jingles and later progressed to playback singing.

Achievement –

Singh was still struggling to make a living in 1967 when he met the Bengali-born Chitra Dutta. She divorced her husband and married Singh in December 1969.

the couple performed as a singing duo but it was not until the 1977 release of the album The Unforgettable that they found significant, and surprising, success.

The Independent described it in 2011 as “ground-breaking … it became a transformative, before-and-after milestone in the history of Indian popular and ghazals music.

The Independent further noted that “This format of solo and duet performances from the first commercially successful husband-and-wife team in Indian popular music proved astonishingly successful.
